    "I needed to find the best movies to watch during Ramadan. I found The Message. This is a great movie directed by Moustapha Akkad. It's from 1976 and stars Anthony Quinn. It's an epic historical film about the life of the prophet Muhammad. I love this movie! It's great if you love Islamic movies and I highly recommend it."

    "This movie was very interesting because it focuses on youth in the Islamic world rather than politics and adult issues. I believe it would be a good movie for Muslim children to watch as well as non-Muslims to see that culture can be very different than what they expect."
