Muhammad: The Messenger of God (2015) Movie Script

In the Name of Allah
What you are about to watch in this movie
is based upon authentic
historical narrations
as well as a portrait
of my self-perception
of the personality of the great
Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (p).
The director: Majid Majidi
Makkah, 10th year after the
beginning of the prophetic mission.
Supporting those who
have been banned
is considered as a disregard
to the treaty of the Quraysh.
All residents of Makkah,
regardless of their status,
must adhere to it.
Else, the sign of treachery will be
stamped on the hands of these men,
so that others can take heed.
There is no compassion
in you Abdul Uzza.
This is what you have inherited.
Assistance to the dwellers of the
valley is against the treaty
and this is its punishment.
This treaty stinks of murder.
This is treachery towards
your own family!
He is under my protection, Abu Lahab!
If anyone draws his sword,
then he will face my sword!
Is this my cousin Hamzah
who is passing through
the city in a mask
and is being so brazen?!
I was just protecting
myself from the dust.
I speak to my enemies face to face.
Are you calling me an enemy?
Say what you have to say.
I do not see anyone who is
willing to listen to me.
I am the eyes and ears of Makkah!
I only want well
for Bani Hashim.
Your goodness is your
vice, Abu Sufyan.
Don't deviate, Hamzah!
I only signed the order to exile
Muhammad and his followers
because I believed
that he would have created
unrest in this city
with his denial of the gods.
Untie him!
has no place for traitors.
Whoever has been given
your protection
can no longer stay here.
you must leave this city
before sunset tomorrow.
Throughout the first seven years
of the Holy Prophet's mission,
the polytheists of Makkah were not
satisfied with only torture and torment,
but rather were intent to
kill the Holy Prophet.
It was the reason why Muhammad
and his followers left Makkah
to seek refuge in the
Valley of Abu Talib
which was located between
two mountains near Makkah.
The polytheists had also sealed off
the entrance to the valley to ensure,
that according to the signed order,
no food or supplies enter
and no interaction with the
residents of Makkah occurs.
We Muslims would stay in this
dry gorge for three years
under the severest of difficulties and
amidst the cries of starving children.
The Holy Prophet has said
that the birth of a daughter
opens a door of
paradise for you.
He has named your daughter
Aminah, the name of his mother.
He gave these
dates as a blessing
and said that it will
increase the mother's milk.
Where did you go?
Five days of unfruitful traveling,
searching for a grain of barley,
searching for a tribe of Bedouins
who would take my money.
News of the boycott has
reached the furthest tribes.
Don't worry;
their own messengers have
unintentionally delivered
the call of Allah's
religion far and wide.
The Holy Prophet just recited
something into the ears of the newborn.
My heart has been enlightened.
All will be resolved soon.
Makkah's leaders did not imagine
that Muhammad and his followers
would be able to withstand
and bear such hardships.
Determination showed by the
Muslims during this time
exposed the rifts that existed
within the leaders of Makkah.
Abu Talib.
The leaders of ten tribes
have gathered at Dar al-Nadwa.
They are waiting for you.
Watch over the Holy Prophet's house.
Ali, my dear son,
is the distribution completed?
Do not leave the
Holy Prophet alone,
stay at his side.
Certainly, dear father.
Where is the opposition if we
all wish to end the boycott?
I am the most concerned
about my family members
in Bani Hashim.
Makkah will welcome Muhammad,
if this is what the elders want.
We will close our eyes
to the visible gods
and attach our hearts
to an invisible one.
You tell me, Aas,
are you ready to share your
table with your slaves?
And you Hisham,
are you willing to allow your wife,
with the permission of
the God of Muhammad,
to speak over you?
You want to shut down the
brothels and bars to the traders?
Then you should all
deny your fathers!
We should just destroy all
the gods of the pilgrims
and sit quietly hoping that
a caravan comes this way.
If it is in the benefit of the elders,
then why would not
I be with you?
Welcome O elder of Quraysh!
Makkah has been counting the days until
it would see you again in its company.
The elders still recognize you
as the head of the sitting.
Welcome, Abu Talib!
Time is short and there
is a lot to get through.
I will give you a summary
of what was said.
Makkah is growing
bigger every day,
but its reputation is degrading.
Up until a few years ago,
this city had great
traders such as Khadijah.
Do you know what status
Muhammad could have today?
Not higher than what
he already has...
God's chosen one.
Abu Talib,
the income of Hajj has
greatly increased this year.
I wanted to leave the gathering
as I have a secret
that can only be
mentioned to you.
My heart has accepted the
invitation of Muhammad,
however I want to know how
much he is willing to pay
in order for Abu Sufyan
to join his religion.
Belief is not a commodity
of sale, Abu Sufyan.
He is the God's chosen one
and I will also be his follower.
Together we will come
to an agreement.
There is no better fragrance than the
hand of the one who pledges allegiance?
It is possible that his heart
may become filled with belief,
but do not bring the world of
these people into disarray!
Abu Talib,
do these people not have a god?
Don't they have rituals?
Do not say no!
It is sufficient for Muhammad
to keep his God in his heart
and become a partner in the
wealth and honor of this city.
The same goes for you, Abu Talib,
with your name,
just like before,
you can make the large caravans
of the city prosperous.
No, you yourself are well aware
that showing the wealth
of Makkah is useless.
Unveil the other stories
that you are hiding,
Ibn Hamd.
Other stories?!
Come with me.
Tolerance of this
tribe has ended.
All are united on one opinion.
What follows is out of my hands.
War between tribes?!
They're the ones putting
themselves in danger.
blood (life) is priceless.
I have never stepped in blood
nor gotten blood on my clothes
unless someone else put it first.
Abu Talib,
if Muhammad refuses
to stop his claims,
Bani Hashim will remove
their support from him.
Then no sword will
be able to save you.
Then will you confront me
and an unsupported person
who is the Prophet of God?
When the drums of war are heard,
Bani Hashim will have
no place to hide.
You have until sunrise tomorrow.
In the Name of Allah, the
All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
All praise belongs to
Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
The All-beneficent,
the All-merciful.
Master of the Day of Judgment.
You alone do we worship
and to You alone do
we turn for help.
Guide us on the straight path,
the path of those who
You have blessed,
not of those who have
incurred Your wrath,
nor those who are astray.
In the Name of Allah,
the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
Have you (O Muhammad) not regarded how your
Lord dealt with the Men of the Elephant?
Did he not make their
stratagems go awry?
And send against
them flocks of birds.
O prophet,
have you not regarded how your
Lord dealt with the Men of the Elephant?
Did he not make their
stratagems go awry?
And send against
them flocks of birds
pelting them with
stones of shale.
Thus making them like
chewed-up straw?
Come this way!
Come this way!
It's mine. Let it go!
Go this way!
Where is Suwaybah?
What do I say to Abdul Muttalib?
Tell him that I am staying.
I will return.
Do you see?
At the peak of chaos
your presence gives
me tranquility.
When I felt your existence
for the first time,
your warmth
eased the pain of not knowing
what happened to your father
on that ill-fated journey.
Abu Talib!
Where is Aminah?
She did not want to come,
what should I do?
Isn't the mountain path
riskier for a pregnant woman?
She's my brother's legacy.
Do not leave her alone!
Go! Go!
Abu Talib!
Come with me!
Follow me!
What are you doing in the city?
How did you get hurt?
The Army of Elephants
has taken all of
father's camels.
The elders of the tribes are also
lamenting and requesting our protection.
They are that close?
They have set up
camp at Muqammis.
Abu Dayr and I were there,
the rest were taken captive.
Where is father?
I will return shortly.
resistance is impossible.
Only a few soldiers remain.
Only a handful from all the tribes.
Udayd also brought news
of your herd of camels.
Abraha's army looted them as spoils of war.
What about Aminah?
She wishes to stay.
I have entrusted her to Fatima.
Tend to all these whose
refuge is the Ka'teah
and who are staying here.
And also assist all those
who are leaving the city.
Also find someone
who knows Amharic.
I am Abdul Muttalib,
the elder of Makkah.
He is Abdul Muttalib.
The elder of Makkah.
Come in!
You are the elder of Makkah
and the gatekeeper
of the Ka'bah.
During the last two
days of my travels,
the elders of every city
have groveled at my feet.
Some of them requested
kindness while others did not.
I killed some of them and
destroyed their gods,
I spared others along with their gods.
However, the destruction of the Ka'bah
has been my target since the beginning.
I have come to hear the
requests of the leader of Makkah
and to see what the gatekeeper
of the Ka'bah has brought.
Now is the time for requests,
as once fighting starts, there
won't be any opportunity.
This is my request.
Your army has taken my 90
camels as spoils of war.
Without war, there are no spoils.
So tell them to release my camels
along with their riders.
Without war, there
can be no victory?
You have lost my respect,
elder of Makkah.
Your request from the general
of the army of elephants
is the return of your camels
and not the safety of your
city or the house of your God?
Why would my Lord
need my intercession?
I am only the owner of my camels.
This city and god's house
has its own owner.
I, Abraha, the governor of Yemen,
have built a temple in Ethiopia,
upon my king's order.
It shines as bright as the sun.
With the gold from its walls,
I can purchase Makkah and
all its inhabitants.
Answer me, gatekeeper
of the Ka'bah.
Then why is the prosperity
of the marketplace,
religion and popularity of the
Ka'bah keeps flourishing?
What is the secret behind the Ka'bah?
I do not know its secret.
But I do know that it is all
made of stones and not gems.
It was not built by a governor
as ordered by a king.
He said that this visit is over,
prepare to defend yourselves.
Return the camels
and their riders!
Get away from my army!
These camels are entrusted to
you until tomorrow morning.
This house
is Your house
and we are all residents
within Your sanctuary.
God's will was such
that the elephants did not
enter the sanctuary of Makkah
and did not go towards the Ka'bah.
The light in the sky!
The light!
Look! Light!
Stay still!
Keep quiet!
Keep quiet! Keep quiet!
Keep quiet! Keep quiet!
And this is the blessing,
wherewith Moses,
the man of God, blessed the children
of Israel before his death.
And he said, The Lord came from Sinai,
and rose up from Seir unto them;
he shined forth
from mount Paran,
and he came with ten
thousand of saints;
from his right hand went
a fiery law for them.
Yes, he loved the people;
all his saints are in thy hand:
and they sat down at thy feet; every
one shall receive of thy words.
Moses commanded us a law,
even the inheritance of
the congregation of Jacob.
(Deuteronomy 33/1-4)
Nevertheless I say unto you,
hereafter shall ye see the Son of man
sitting on the right hand of power, and coming
in the clouds of heaven. (Matthew 26/64)
It has been realized.
Make sure you give
food to everyone.
No one must leave this
gathering hungry.
Welcome, dear brother!
What is happening? A banquet
for relatives and elders?
You still don't know our father?
I know I should have
to sit at a table
to eat the leftovers
of the poor.
I am ready to give
up all honors,
but I will never disgrace myself.
Why are you late?
The little one is hungry.
My lady did not allow me to come.
He is very hungry.
I saw the banquet that your father
has prepared outside Makkah.
It's a celebration
for his grandson,
aren't you pleased?
Taking pride in a baby
who has no father
and a mother who has no milk;
they are now using my
slave-girl as his wet nurse.
I told you to ignore
this banquet!
I did not go to it.
You went and
returned with shame.
You said that pride
must be purchased,
so I went to get my share.
How did he look?
Did he look like Abdullah?
I did not see him.
Did they not say whom he resembled
from amongst the family?
I did not meet anyone.
This is your portion
from the sale!
Honor is the share of Abdullah's
orphan and his other eight uncles.
Give birth to a child, then
you can also claim a share.
From you, I have
only carried hatred!
Is that so?
Am I your issue?
Or not?
Was it that Abdullah
didn't look at you
and your luck felt
on my empty heart?
My anguish is that I was
the peacemaker who
reconciliated the Bani
Hashim to the Bani Umayyah;
from the ten sons
of Abdul Muttalib
my share was neither the goods
of the family nor its bravery.
If you are the peacemaker,
the world does not see peace between
the Bani Hashim and the Bani Umayyah.
I curse you!
Examine them all,
they must have no flaws.
Examine them from head to
toe, even the smallest of
scars will cancel the transaction.
Put the strong ones aside.
Where is this one from?
Is he able to work?
This one is not for sale.
Did something happen in Makkah?
It's a normal day in the
month of Rabi' al-Awwal.
I will return.
Where are you going?
My order?
We only saw a light in the sky.
Did God not speak to
Moses through fire?
There is a huge difference between
that fire and this light.
The Mount of Sinai from which Moses came
down is unknown and so is the land of Paran.
God and His savior
are hidden from us.
Was the land of Paran not the place where the
other children of Abraham took up residence?
Was not the glad tidings of the
manifestation of his light
the reason why the Children of Israel
migrated to this land in the first place,
so that one day the promised
one can rise from amongst us?
Without doubt a child was
born to these people
and that soul of the promised one that
existed from the beginning of creation
descended into its human form.
And he is now amongst us.
So we know something, but we will
not do anything to check it?
We should first investigate
on whom from amongst the Jews
gave birth to a son.
The Jews in Makkah are very few.
Samuel, the time of arrival of the
promised one has not been specified.
We will wait and see what the scholars
of Khaybar have to say about this.
If he is amongst us, we must
enthusiastically adhere to his call.
We will go to Khaybar
in the next few days.
But we first need to
gather information
about the births of this nation
that occurred in Makkah.
Is it possible for a prophet
to come from this nation?
Not from this nation,
rather for this nation.
Let's go!
We will not get
our answers here.
The grandson of Abdul Muttalib
from the tribe of Bani Hashim.
On that day, everyone named their children
with the names of the idols of their tribes.
Abdul Muttalib went
towards the Black Stone
and sought blessings from the heavenly
stone, which was a remnant of Abraham's time.
Muhammad! What name is this?!
We have not heard it before!
Where did this name come from?
There are no blessings from our gods nor
any trace of our ancestors in this name.
What is this name!
There is no mention of
the gods in this name.
We have never heard this
name from any tribe.
No boy was ever named Muhammad.
His name is "the praised",
praise be upon him!
His name is "the praised",
praise be upon him!
His name is Muhammad!
Blessing in that name!
What do I have?
Jameelah is requesting
her slave-girl back.
But she just got here.
Feeding a newborn
does not take long.
She left her domestic work
to come and feed a child!
This child is your nephew.
Jameelah is also my wife.
Give us some time; the
mother has insufficient milk.
Life is short, let's
stop this game!
Where is Suwaybah that
she can't hear me?
Jameelah is unhappy with her
slave-girl feeding your child.
But he is still hungry.
I do not want words of
unhappiness in this house.
Why don't you cry?
What are you doing?
Are you crazy!
- Do you want to die?!
- Wait!
We need water.
We were left behind
and are thirsty.
A little further
up there is water.
I lost my mule.
And the sun has sapped
all our energy.
- We are in a hurry.
- Wait! Please!
Just a drop so that we can get to a well.
Just a drop!
Come this way and see our
condition for yourselves.
Lead the way!
Where are you going?
To Makkah.
We are going so that we can share the
milk of this child with another.
In exchange for some
bread to feed my family.
You have come late.
The naming ceremonies are over.
You will also miss the
wet-nurse market.
Take this.
In this desert, you should have thought
about carrying a few more water bags.
You are very kind, sir.
Clear the room.
I want a word with you!
He doesn't understand
our language.
Do you understand our language?
Your nephew is getting weaker
and until we find another wet-nurse
he will perish from hunger.
Your slave-girl has milk and
you are withholding it?
Take a fee for the milk
or set a price and sell her.
I have given the slave-girl
as a gift to my wife.
A gift cannot be taken
back nor be sold.
Your wife...
Jameelah is your daughter-in-law.
Do not speak ill of her
as she is part of your family.
I am not complaining
about my daughter-in-law,
but I am embarrassed by
my own flesh and blood.
Bani Umayyah have purchased
you with this woman.
Or not!
Rather you have yourself sold
your family lineage to them.
If it were not for you, this union
would not have taken place.
Do Bani Umayyah have
some sort of status?
What have I gained
from my own family?
Even Cain was not as
jealous and hateful as you
are to your brother
Abu Lahab!
The High Priest is already
aware of the sightings.
He also knows about
your astonished state
and that you took the news of the
light rain of Paran to Madaris.
He took those signs to be the
beginning of a new dawn.
After such a lengthy period of waiting, what
a great blessing has occurred in our era.
The truth will be
shortly revealed to us.
I am worried.
The signs of the birth occurred
but not the signs of the Savior.
It points towards Makkah
where the Jews are
an extreme minority.
During the light rain, no male child
was born into a Jewish family.
While awaiting of the Savior continues,
rumors of his arrival will also prevail.
We should not await
another disciple
who will again split this
great nation into factions.
For years we have been awaiting from generation
to generation, what will this all mean
if the Savior is from
amongst the Arabs?
The arrival of the Savior does not have
any condition nor stipulation from God.
What if he is not from our nation?
We do not need you to confirm
the apparition of the Savior,
you are just an employee.
It is our duty to find him.
On the one hand I have doubt,
but on the other I have certainty.
Is this not the order of the Pharaoh
reported by the believers of Moses?
He must be recognized, as this
is the order of the Book.
For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given, and the
government shall be upon his shoulder.
And his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The
Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9/6)
Of the increase of his
government and peace
there shall be no end, upon the throne
of David, and upon his kingdom,
to order it, and to establish it
with judgment and with justice
from henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts
will perform this. (Isaiah 9/7)
What if he is not
from our nation?
How is it possible that a prophet
be truthful if he is not from us?
Do you doubt the chosen
nature of your nation?
Go to Makkah and
start a business.
As you are convinced in
the light rain of Paran,
search out the child who has the
sign of governance on his shoulder,
a sign that other
prophets also possessed.
The Arabs do not believe
in a promised savior.
If I find that magnificent soul
of which the signs speak...
That child is like a treasure, a treasure
that could end all our sufferings.
Go and find him.
I am going that way.
No one hired me to
be their wet-nurse.
I only got this from the wool
of the sheep that we brought.
What should we do?
I don't know.
This Jameel does not have
the energy to return.
Be satisfied.
I will take him to the market
and hopefully we can get
some money from him.
They will not pay for it.
It will only create more
annoyance for our daughter.
We don't have any other
choice, Haleemah.
My madam is very
difficult to please.
However, whoever is
chosen will be paid well.
Both of you come with me.
Don't needlessly walk
him around the town.
This chunk of meat he
has will burn off.
His body has scars
but I will buy it for
the price of its meat.
I will not charge you
for the slaughtering
and you can have the skin.
How many dinars?
Try and make your madam pick me.
My child has no one and
is in need of food.
Catch him!
Watch out!
Where are you going?!
Watch out!
Watch out!
Catch him!
Watch out!
Come back here!
Watch out.
Watch out!
Watch out!
Catch him!
Get up!
Get up! Come out from there!
Get up.
Get up.
Get up.
He is scared.
Let him calm down.
Will you not eat with me?
I had the feeling that I would
be receiving guests today.
Do not worry!
The others will come and take care of him.
Come inside.
Please sit.
Put your baby down over there
and rest for a while.
He is hungry.
I do not have milk.
He has rejected all
the wet-nurses
that have come during
the last few days.
My tears are of
maternal affection;
for that milk that he accepted.
Why are you crying?
This breast of mine
did not produce,
but as soon as he started to
suckle on it, it became full.
What is your name?
Halima Sa'diyah?
From its sound you can
tell it is pure gold?
It will be the property of
the one who finds the child.
A child who will be
known by his blessings.
He has a sign on his
shoulder, on the back.
Because of the heat, this
city has a very dry climate,
mothers usually send their children to
wet-nurses living near the city
or to the desert.
Search in the city and
its surroundings.
Go! Go!
Quickly! Quickly!
I know it is not easy
to let Muhammad go.
I'm having a hard time
separating from him.
Is it not possible for the wet-nurse
to stay here instead of sending him?
She has a husband
and other children,
how can she stay?
If only you gave me
permission to go with them.
It is of the best
interest of you
and of Muhammad
that he goes alone.
Why are you worried?
This is our good fortune.
I know this family well.
We will visit him whenever
we get the opportunity.
A two-months old Muhammad
began his first journey.
How surreal it was for us,
but for Aminah it was unbearable
and a source of great grief.
Open the door!
To protect your children from devil
and from evil spirits! Open!
Let me see him!
What is his name?
Welcome back!
- It was a difficult journey.
- What is his name, mother?
- Muhammad.
- Unload the camels!
Sweetheart, did you see?
Do not open your eyes.
Get out! Get out!
Move away!
Remain clean
and burn all your clothes.
Burn all the grains that were
harvested during the previous years.
Do not allow the animals to drink from the
wells located in the center of the city.
Bring water for them from the wells
that are outside of the city.
The city's businessmen
must open up their storerooms
and generously distribute their
cloth amongst the people.
What should I do now?
See if you can get
some wheat from Ta'if.
If you see an infected person,
separate him from the people.
See if you can acquire a few
camels and horses for me.
I have brought wheat and clothes,
with no necessary recompense.
Food and clothing!
They are worth more than
pure gold these days.
How can we compensate you?
There is no need for compensation
when you distribute what you have equally
between the Jews and yourselves.
It is the renowned fairness
of the gatekeeper of
Abraham's Ka'bah that
motivated me to do this.
There is no difference
between us.
The Jews are residents of this
city and are our brothers.
It is the right of the neighbor.
Our destinies are intertwined.
This is a gift to honor
your worthy intentions.
For the children of this city
and to that child who was
born on the night when
the stars were raining
from the sky of Paran...
the one whose name you know.
I do not know anything.
Tell me the price of your goods
and take the money for it.
You know.
Please begin.
Muhammad must return
to Sa'diyah tomorrow.
He is not the only one leaving.
All the children
must leave Makkah.
Please begin.
Do you know how much
I love Muhammad?
I have spent my whole
life in separation.
Separation from my previous love,
and my future love,
So now that the mothers
are going with their children,
let me go with Muhammad.
Love requires the ability
to bear difficulties.
Because you love him,
let him remain unknown.
This child has brought
so much blessings to all,
but where is his own share?
Only distance and separation?
It's a mystery of love,
without doubt someone else
loves him more than you and I.
Go away!
Get Lost!
Which one is he?
The one wearing white.
What do you want?
We were left behind.
Just some bread and
water if you have.
Shaymah, bring them some water.
What do you want
with that child?
To be healed!
My tent is not too far away.
Have your water and
bread and leave.
My husband is sick;
let him come with me for a little
while so that he can cure him.
I said leave!
Whatever amount of money
you want I will give you,
just let us get cured...
I will end your days if
you utter another word!
They are coming. Move!
Hurry! Tell your father.
Zayd, come quick!
Help me!
I have been stabbed.
- Zayd!
- What happened? Zayd!
I am taking Muhammad to Makkah.
Get him ready.
We will leave before sunrise.
My dear Muhammad,
this is your travel bag.
Give it to your father.
As I said, I was very careful.
I never left him alone.
Halima did not permit any
women into the house.
No one should know
that he has returned.
Tell them to get ready.
I will take him myself
to a safe place.
What about Aminah?
Inform her once that I am gone.
Prepare something for Harith,
I will return quickly.
My dear Muhammad,
welcome to the cave of Hira,
with all its great solitude,
and tranquility.
Air has such a
beautiful smell up here!
You came up very quickly,
I was worried that I
might have lost you,
but it seems that you know the
paths here better than me.
I am missing my mother.
When will she come?
We have come here to wait for her,
so that we can take a journey.
A journey?!
A journey to visit family.
The love and affection between
a mother and her child,
who had been separated
for many years,
found an opportunity to manifest itself
on a journey to visit relatives in Yathrib.
A villager brought
that child to Makkah
with haste last night.
Do you know his name?
- Muhammad.
- Muhammad.
The spring has dried up.
The spring is dry.
We will camp here.
Keep your allocated
portions of water.
Keep the allocation of
the animals for them.
Do they seek water
from these idols?
In this dry land,
God gifted the children
of Abraham water.
He then commanded him to
build the Ka'bah from stone
and to establish the
religion of monotheism.
The people of this land
instead of worshiping
the one true God
only saw the Ka'bah.
They took stones of
the Ka'bah with them
so that they could worship
it as they pleased.
This is how they forgot the God
of Abraham and his religion.
And that is why the
water stopped flowing.
They have arrived.
My beloved Aminah!
I cannot show enough gratitude,
after so many years,
I finally get to see you again.
Distance and your lack was an
excuse to come to visit you.
Your eyes are a reminder of Abdullah,
dear Muhammad!
Welcome, Aminah.
It's so good to see you.
Go inside.
Muhammad is your guest,
so take good care of him.
I have brought Muhammad to you.
Come here, Muhammad.
Your father is resting here.
When I was a child,
I wished to touch the sky,
but I couldn't.
I wanted to pluck the fruit
that was on the highest
branch of the tree,
as then I would be
closer to the sky.
Just like that apple tree.
The first time I
saw your father,
he was like a ripe fruit located
on the highest branch of a tree
that no one could reach.
He was handsome,
with a radiant face.
God accepted Aminah's plea
and made Abdullah
part of her destiny.
Even though
this union only lasted two months,
- it was like a sweet and peaceful dream.
- Mother,
I have brought an apple for you.
Open your eyes wider, my dear.
The difficulty of the journey
is not good for your health.
I am feeling better,
I can manage the journey.
I have to deliver
Abdullah's trust.
I will not insist more.
I will pray for you.
My dear Muhammad,
know that this is
also your home.
I will miss this city.
We will also miss you.
Have a safe journey.
Move out!
Get going!
Get going!
I need to know what is happening
with Muhammad and Aminah.
I dreamt that I was
extremely thirsty,
but instead of my dried
lips, I saw myself
plunging the lifeless body
of Muhammad into water.
I do not know its
I cannot think of an answer.
It has made me restless.
Its interpretation is your going,
go now.
Welcome, O son of Abdul Muttalib!
Why all this fear?
We thought that you might
have been the thugs again.
- Bandits?
- They were not thieves.
A day ago, they
attacked our caravan,
- but they were not after goods.
- What were they after?
They unveiled that they were
searching for a mother and a child.
Where are they?
While traveling, Aminah's
health deteriorated,
so we were constrained to take
her to a village called Abwa.
Abwa? What did you
say to the assailants?
We did not tell them about the village.
We told them that they
returned to Yathrib.
Thank you!
Let's go!
Do not worry.
It is raining
as if it will never stop.
But finally, it came to an end.
The stars then came out,
abundant and entertaining,
as if they were endless.
But on daybreak,
their lifespan also
comes to an end.
One day, this world
will come to an end
and the only thing
that will remain
is love and affection.
Just like the sweet
scent of your hand
which has accompanied you
all the way from Yathrib.
- Aminah has passed away!
- What happened?
The daughter-in-law of
Bani Hashim has left us!
Muhammad has fallen ill!
What happened to him?
He could not handle
the separation.
Fever of losing his mother. Sir!
His body is heating up.
His fever is not coming down, sir.
Protect Muhammad!
Aminah has passed away!
The daughter-in-law of
Bani Hashim is no more!
The beloved of Bani
Hashim has left us!
I entrust you to
the one true God.
When the Jews were looking
for a place to reside in
and God gave them glad tidings,
did He tell you that this land, in
its entirety, belonged to you?
And that it was not
inhabited before you?
We have received dreadful
news from Makkah, Samuel!
The Jewish traders
have been banned from
carrying out any business.
Do you see this as
positive for the Jews?
Our religion does not see business
as an aim to earn personal wealth
but rather as a mean to
uplift the entire community,
and in order for this to happen there needs
to be cooperation with other communities.
Your egos are dangerous
and must be tamed
before they destroy
the entire community!
Your own ego and that of
the ones who is feeding it.
The one who throws rocks towards the
sky will get them back on his head.
Do not wear the name of a God who
you don't fear on your clothes!
Abu Talib, father.
The polytheists, to perform the
ritual of the Age of Ignorance,
circled around the Ka'bah.
They had mixed up
this ancient practice
with polytheism and idolatry.
However, we,
in accordance to the legacy
of Abraham and his religion,
still perform the Hajj.
Labbayk! (I have answered
Your call, O Allah!)
I have answered Your call, O Allah!
Labbayk! (I have answered
Your call, O Allah!)
I am honored to have one of the
great businessmen of Makkah
set foot in my tent.
A desert dweller with
such lavishness?
Tell the truth.
Where did you find the treasure?
Your father does not consider me
worthy of residing in Makkah,
so I am forced to trade
my pearls in the desert.
I have no interest
in your pearls
nor is my father is
of my mediation.
Khaybar and I know how
to recognize pearls.
I heard that your
father has taken ill.
He is sick.
He handed over the affairs of
pilgrimage to one of his other sons.
Hopefully during the next Hajj
there will be no hindrance
for my business in Makkah.
Let us make this meal
the first draft of a pact between
us and the dignitaries of Quraysh.
Accompany me to visit my father.
Leave us alone.
I will sacrifice ten camels so
that you regain your health.
My heart has been yearning for
the warmth of your hands,
even though you have always
been distant from me.
But you are a father,
a father and an elder to all.
My heart does not want
the warmth of your hands
to be withheld from me.
Death is not easy for me.
My dear Muhammad,
go and tell all the
relatives to gather here.
Do not lose hope.
This is just a minor ailment.
Do not worry about
Muhammad either,
he is dear to all of us.
it is hot milk.
Drink it.
It will warm up your body.
There was a time when milk
was denied to this child.
Abu Talib...
Abu Talib,
take care of this unique child.
He has never felt the
warmth of a father
nor tasted the sweetness of a
mother's compassion in his life.
Treat him as a part of yourself.
Just like your own child.
I can rest in peace.
50 coins!
150 coins!
400 coins!
450 coins!
500 coins!
500 coins!
500 coins!
Take her away!
Next slave-girl!
Please do not sell my
wife and children!
Get out of here!
Please do not sell my
wife and children!
500 coins!
500 coins!
700 coins!
- Bring the next slave-girl!
- Sir!
Please sir! She is Suwaybah,
she has served you all her life!
A deal is a deal!
Bring me what you owe me and
you can have your wife back!
Sir, I have been very unfortunate.
My flock has been struck by disease.
I do not recognise any disease or any goat.
I only recognize you and this
is how you will repay me!
Throw him out!
Sir! Please show mercy!
Sir! Be patient!
- Please give me some more time!
- Peace be upon you dear uncle.
You have grown up well.
Forgive Suwaybah and her child.
He agreed to pay me twice the amount
I gave him at a certain time.
He gave his wife as a guarantee.
Free his wife,
he will repay you one day.
He has nothing to give!
While he worked for me,
I provided food and shelter
for his wife and children.
He became greedy and asked for a
loan so that he can work for himself.
I cannot endorse his misfortune.
Give me some time
to pay back his debt, uncle.
If I am unable to do so then
I will come and work for you.
Who will be your guarantor?
Abu Talib?
Is it not sufficient that he
is Muhammad the trustworthy?
His guarantor is
his truthfulness.
Today is a special day.
Muhammad finally stepped
foot into this house.
For once your nephew
requested something from you.
Tell them not to sell her.
Why are you waiting?
Return his wife.
Suwaybah was my slave-girl,
the agreement in exchange
for her freedom is that
we should get to see
Muhammad more often.
This is a worthy agreement.
Do not forget about
our agreement.
Don't worry. I won't.
Have mercy!
Have mercy on me!
You sent a message saying that
this one was a boy, so where is he?
I have come from far away just
to see your daughter Sawahi?
Please leave her alive!
She will serve you.
You will feed her
only for her to become
a slave-girl for her
husband's family?
I will feed her
from my own share!
Please leave her alive!
You are a source of disgrace!
The women of our tribe
have given birth to sons.
So during time of war or when work is
needed, they can hold their heads up high.
Leave her alive!
You didn't give birth to a boy!
You don't deserve
to remain alive!
Who are you?
Is she not your daughter?
She looks very much like you.
She has beautiful eyes,
just like you.
If only she had a long life,
she could give birth
and keep the legacy
of your eyes alive.
Congratulations to you
on having a girl.
A daughter is a blessing.
Abdul Uzza!
What remains in Makkah that your
caravan doesn't yet have?
The only thing that remains
is Muhammad's debt,
concerning that mother
who he freed.
It's a very big caravan,
counting it has made me tired.
I am not blind.
They are taking
Muhammad with them.
Doesn't matter.
The reality is that you should have
desired Muhammad from your father
and not from your brother at least you
would have kept a part of his life.
Leave me alone.
You cannot stay in your room,
wear colorful clothes and claim
to be the head of Quraysh!
If it is a befitting title,
then why is it
attached to Abu Talib?
Go to Kanis and find Barukh.
Tell him it's a
message for Samuel.
Let's gather to welcome the bell!
Let's gather to welcome the bell!
Hasten to welcome the bell!
Hasten to welcome the bell!
When the world will be filled with
injustice and religion will be no more,
God will show mercy to the people
and send a messenger to them
who will have a white
cloud above his head.
He will be your savior.
Bring me my robes!
Get them away!
Move from here! Get
out of the way!
Strike them with stones!
Get the lepers away!
Stay away from them!
Stay away from them!
Do not get close!
Go away from here!
Get out of the city!
Move the lepers!
Stay away from them!
Are you the head of
this Arab caravan?
He is asking if you are the
head of this Arab caravan.
Yes, I am.
The priest of this
church wishes to invite
you and your companions for lunch
on this blessed day.
Accept his invitation, dear uncle.
This protector of the helpless
is he your son?
Muhammad is like a kind
son who is living with us.
He is my brother's son.
Your brother?
This is also a sign.
He is alone, while the
shade of God is upon him.
What do you mean?
God Almighty in His words
to our master gave glad tidings
of another comforter
who will come
and remain with us.
Who is that comforter?
He is a person like the Son of man
endowed with the spirit of truth.
He will bear witness to our master.
It is a good news for us.
Even the Spirit of truth; whom
the world cannot receive,
because it does not see
him, nor know him:
but you know him;
for He abides with you,
and will be in you.
(John 16/7)
But when He, the Spirit
of truth, comes,
He will guide you into all the truth;
for He will not speak
of his own initiative,
but whatever He
hears, He will speak;
and He will disclose to you
what is to come.
(John 16/13)
Peace be upon you.
Welcome, young man!
Peace be upon you.
Why can they not be
treated in a way
that you would have
liked to be treated?
The sin is from us.
This status has been established
so that we may seek forgiveness
from people's sins.
However, our sin is the
neglecting of the destitutes.
But your words
reflect those of
our predecessors.
Jesus has said:
"Do unto others
as you wish other
to do unto you."
This is another sign, young man.
That you gave no importance to
the majesty of this church,
but instead sought out the
failures of man and its trails.
Just as God willed.
These are the words of Jesus.
Just in another form.
Our first teaching is:
know that your Lord is one.
Where do you find God?
In the hearts of
the downtrodden.
Blessed is he
who comes in the name of
the Lord. (Matthew 23/39)
To this part of the world
more than any other place
many messengers have
been sent by God.
I have seen clues in this land,
of the fallout of a nations' malice,
a nation that could not
tolerate their own prophets.
They request a savior
via their tongues,
but in their hearts
there is fear.
They have gotten used to the
little profit of this world
and are afraid that their world
will be turned upside down.
This all stems
from their ignorance.
They are afraid that
the savior will come
and nullify the teachings and
books of the previous prophets.
They do not know that he
has not come to abrogate,
but rather to complete and
perfect the religion.
There are many signs
of his appearance.
Tell me one of those signs?
One of them should be located
between his shoulder blades,
have you seen it?
Do you know what it means?
It is the sign of prophethood.
Listen carefully.
This path is
extremely dangerous.
End you journey here.
Do not go to Syria.
Return to Makkah
and take extreme care of him.
And anything left in the
caravan will be for you.
We have to allow
them to exit Busra,
so that the government
soldiers cannot assist them.
You said the balancing of your
people's debt is the tribe
and that no one
should be left alive.
So what do you want
with their property?
Only the salvation of the
misguided ones from amongst us.
Salvation? After twelve years of
research we finally have the occasion.
And I have only thought about
the salvation of my own people.
Know that God Almighty
said to Moses:
"A prophet from amongst them,
from amongst your brothers for you
will be chosen, so listen to him."
He is not from us, Samuel!
I am worried.
You said that only the
Arabs are protecting them,
not the Roman army.
They are very strong
and well trained.
This will not work.
Go and hire some more men.
You will get it after the fight.
Keep this between us.
Send three archers forward
and hire some more
men for this fight.
And if no one comes?
Then wait in the mountain pass.
You there!
Follow the caravan step by step.
Let's go!
Buhayra's plan to leave
us a little later than
the main caravan from
Deir was well thought out.
Didn't you say after the fight?
A horse alone in the desert?
Where did he leave its
rider before running away?
No horse would leave its
rider and run away,
unless the rider
himself runs away.
We will stop here.
Tie down the camels.
Come here.
- Come here, all of you.
- Give us dates!
Dates! Dates!
Give us dates!
Give us dates!
Be careful.
Slowly, slowly.
Give us dates!
Where are your menfolk?
- At sea?
- No.
He is injured.
He does not have the
ability to travel.
Where can I find them?
Distribute whatever
we have among them.
Just keep enough for
us to reach Ghadeer.
O Great Jerish!
Have mercy upon us!
Look at our lamentations!
Look at our hunger!
O Great Jerish!
This woman and her children
are a sacrifice for
your stillness.
Please look upon us again!
We will throw out our
sacrifices into the sea.
So open its bounties to us!
The wailing of women?
The wailing of women!
The sacrifice to the sea!
The sacrifice!
The sacrifice!
The sacrifice!
The sacrifice!
The sacrifice to the sea!
Who do you think you are?
Get away!
Get away from them!
They are the sacrifice to the sea!
Get him away!
Get him away from there
before he makes Juraysh angry!
Get him away!
Get him!
Tie him up!
Tie him up!
Throw him into the sea!
Protect Muhammad!
Move out of the way!
Stay calm!
What are you doing?
What are you doing?
Remain calm!
Dear father,
the Holy Prophet is calling you.
Muhammad is the prophet of God
who has been given
the responsibility
to deliver to you the
message of your Lord
loud and clear.
The message of God to Muhammad,
peace and blessings
be upon him, is this:
The pact concerning the
boycott of the Muslims
is no more,
that very pact that was signed by
the leaders and heads of Quraysh.
Son of Abdul Muttalib!
Son of Abdul Muttalib!
He was not the one
who endorsed the pact
that he can cancel it
when it pleases him!
The tribes of Quraysh
have elders, leaders.
They have gods.
Where is the invisible
God of Muhammad
who has the audacity to
stand up against our gods?
Laat, Uzza and Hubal!
They have brought bounties and
security to these people.
What has the God of Muhammad
brought to his followers
except poverty, misery,
hunger and death?
O sons of Abdul Muttalib!
Is this the great revelation of a
man who speaks in the name of God?
You have summoned young and
old, women and children here
in order to claim that the pact of
the Quraysh has become invalid?!
In front of the general public,
tell us where is your proof?
Where are those words
worth listening?
And they have no proof,
so know this, Abu Talib,
this pact and boycott will
only end when I say it does,
when the heads of the
Quraysh will want it!
If it occurs in any other way,
the answer of Makkah to your valley
will be war and swords!
With which pact have
you gained supporters
for war and conflict?
Why do you not ask your leaders,
before you stain your
hands with blood,
to reveal to you the pact which
they wrote and endorsed in secret?
Maybe, you honestly do not see
these people as your own!
God revealed to His messenger
that the pact no longer exists!
Termites have destroyed the pact.
If this is not the case then
show it to everyone!
This is a clear pact.
Only 'In the Name of Allah' remains!
God is great!
Was it not your gods which
were upon the truth?
That god who protected the
believers is upon truth.
Without the pact, which war?
Which swords?
This is sorcery!
Who, besides the sorcerers,
could come to know about a pact
that was signed in secret?
The magicians also thought that
the staff of Moses as witchcraft,
they did not believe him.
They called him a sorcerer.
But he was a messenger from God.
Everything except
the one true God
is insignificant and transitory.
O people!
Take this as a sign of your
invitation towards the truth.
Turn towards God,
who has no equal
and whose name is eternal.
I see no pact that
needs to be upheld.
This is a sign of their
victory, Abu Sufyan.
Do not hesitate any longer,
your sword is still sharp.
As long as Abu Talib is the one who
supports and protects Muhammad,
nothing can be done.
In the Name of Allah,
the All-beneficent, the All-merciful
Say, 'O People of the Book!
Come to a word common
between us and you:
that we will worship no one but Allah, and
that we will not ascribe any partner to Him,
and that we will not take each
other as lords besides Allah.'
But if they turn away, say, 'Be witness
that we are of those who submit.'
(Surah Ale Imran (3): 64)
There is no compulsion in religion:
righteousness has become
distinct from error.
So one who disavows the Rebels
and has faith in Allah
has held fast to the firmest handle
for which there is no breaking;
and Allah is All-hearing, All-knowing.
(Surah Baqarah (2): 256)
O you who have faith!
Be maintainers, as witnesses for
the sake of Allah, of justice,
and ill feeling for a people should
never lead you to be unfair.
Be fair;
that is nearer to Godwariness,
and be wary of Allah.
Allah is indeed well aware of what you do.
(Surah Maidah (5): 8)
