The Life of Muhammad: The Seeker

About This Episode


Journalist Rageh Omaar examines the world into which Muhammad was born, his marriage to his first wife, Khadijah, as well as his first revelations, and the profound impact they had on his life and on the lives of those closest to him.

Life of Muhammad is a three-part series charting the extraordinary story of a man who, in little more than 20 years, changed the world. In a journey both literal and historical, host Rageh Omaar travels to the place of Muhammad’s birth to retrace the footsteps of the prophet, from his humble beginnings in Mecca to his struggles with accepting his prophetic role, from his flight to Medina and the founding of the first Islamic constitution to his subsequent military and political successes and failures — through to his death and his legacy.
