Secrets of the Koran ( visu )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 776 libraries worldwide
For some billion people worldwide, it is the Holy Scripture, the word of God and his prophet. For others, it is no more than a historical artifact that has left an indelible imprint on the world. It is the Koran. This film examines the history of the work that many outside Islam find impenetrable and mysterious, and explores the striking similarities and differences between the Koran and the Bible--and the ways in which Muslims believe the Koran corrects some of the Jewish and Christian scriptures. Leading religious scholars, Islamic scholars, and holy men detail the history of the Koran from the Golden Age of Islam to the modern rise of jihadism. This film provides a guide to understanding the fundamental work that has shaped the Muslim faith for over 1,400 years, and continues to influence modern history
