The Qur'an( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Qur'an has become the most ideologically influential text in the world. Muslims believe it to be the word of God, as first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in a cave in the Arabian Desert, nearly fifteen hundred years ago. Today Islam is a religion of vast dimensions. Well over a billion people from the Americas to China, from India to the southern tip of Africa, are Muslim. Yet within this single universe of belief, there are profound differences in the status of women, attitudes to peace and violence, punishment and forgiveness. Some Muslim regimes deny girls the right to an education and women the right to vote or drive. In other Muslim countries, women lead political parties and have even become heads of state. But if Islam is rooted in the Qur'an, and the Qur'an is the ultimate and changeless message of God, how are these differences possible? Is it possible to go back to the source, and discover what the Qur'an actually says about the most important spiritual and ethical questions? In this powerful and stunningly beautiful two-part program, 'The Qu''an', award-winning UK director, Antony Thomas takes us into the heart of the Muslim world and through the personal lives of people living according to their understanding of the Qur'an. The range of witnesses and experiences is extraordinary - from Ayatollahs and Grand Imams to simple farmers; from women in positions of power to women living in veiled seclusion; from those who speak of the Qur'an's uncompromising message of peace and tolerance to those who find justification in the text for violent conflict and suicide bombing. All speak frankly about their relationship with the book which governs their lives, and through them, we gain clearer and clearer insights into this wonderfully complex, beautiful and often contradictory 'guide and healing for humanity'."--ABC1 website, viewed 14 June 2009
