Inside Islam (DVD). Viewing this compelling documentary, one wonders how Al-Islam, a beautiful religion, could have become for some, synonymous with fear and hatred, even after 9/11. Inside Islam explores the historic and poetic wellspring of the Muslim peoples and illuminates commonalities among the Abrahamic faith traditions of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism.
Topics include Islam's connections with Judaism and Christianity, the life of Muhammad, the Five Pillars of Islam (the profession of faith, prayer, charity, fasting during Ramadan, and the pilgrimage to Mecca), the history of Islam, women in Islam, European colonialism, Islamism, the Nation of Islam, and jihad.
