Muhammad
Muḥammad – (محمد)

Last Islamic Prophet

This is a list of films about the Islamic prophet, Muhammad. Muhammad is the messenger of the monotheistic Abrahamic faith, Islam. Like Jesus, Moses and others before him he is regarded as an integral part of the history of Islam by Muslims worldwide. Numerous films and documentaries have been made about Muhammad. Films produced in the Middle East are not listed here as there are very few depictions of Muhammad in the Arab states owing to certain customs.

Two new modernised films are currently being produced, considered the “second of their kind” (referring to western films respecting the portrayal of Muhammad).[1] According to some sources it will be an adaptation of the original 1976 film The Message in which Anthony Quinn starred as Muhammad’s uncle Hamza ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib.[1][2][3][4] Film producer Barrie M. Osborne is attached to produce a new movie about Muhammad. The film is financed by a Qatari media company and will be supervised by Yusuf al-Qaradawi.[5]
