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 this powerful and stunningly beautiful two-part program, The Qur'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.
