Please mark your calendars and share this information with your students and the community. The event is free and open to the public.

In the occasions of Islamic New Year and International Education Week, please join us on for a presentation on the life of the man who has shaped the lives of more than two billion Muslims living today:

"Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet" Film Screening and Discussion:
Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Time: 6 p.m. Location: Montgomery College's Germantown Campus, Globe Hall.

A panel discussion with a representative from Muslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights (KARAMAH) will follow the film screening will follow the film screening.

Montgomery College's own Rev. Donald Marbury, Germantown Campus faculty, was a consultant on this documentary.

Prophet Muhammad was honored by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1935 as a source of law and justice alongside Moses, Solomon, and Confucius. He is depicted in the Courtroom Frieze among the great law-givers of mankind
(http://www.supremecourt.gov/about/north&southwalls.pdf).

It is a lively, thorough, and revealing portrait of Muhammad, the man and the Prophet. It takes viewers not only to the world of 7th century Arabia to examine the life and history of the man whom Muslims consider to be the last prophet, but also looks into the homes, mosques, and workplaces of some of America's seven million Muslims to discover the many ways in which Muslims today continue to follow Muhammad's example. Especially relevant in a post 9-11 world, this film shows a side of Islam and Muslims that is rarely encountered on the television or movie screen.

"Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet" is a PBS documentary film about the life of Islamic prophet Muhammad based on historical records and on the stories of living American Muslims. The film was produced in 2002 by Alex Kronemer and Michael Wolfe.

Attention MC Faculty and Staff: This event meets the college's multicultural and diversity training requirements, approved by the Center for Professional & Organizational Development (CPOD).


Here are a few highlights about what newspapers are saying about the film...

The Los Angeles Times called the film "a candid, thoughtful, flowing, visually stunning film," which was "as timely as documentaries get."

The Washington Post wrote that the film couldn't be more important at a time when "Islam is under attack from within, by fanatics who distort its teachings, and from without, by those seeking a scapegoat for violent hot spots around the world."

Words that remain relevant today. Above all, as the Catholic News Service commented, "though this biography offers viewers fresh insights into the spiritual foundations of Islam, what proves even more rewarding is the program's introduction to Americans who are faithful Muslims."

There will be a display of the College's relevant literature available for community members.
