Sufi Soul: The Mystic Music Of Islam is a 2005 documentary directed by Simon Broughton. It documents the many musical subcultures of Sufism as it was incorporated by different cultures in different regions. With many comparisons to Christianity, it displays how with all religions there are zealots and passivists, and the Sufi's of Islam are passivists who focus primarily on music as a spiritual expression, much like the Christian troubadour or modern Christian Rock churches.

In this ground-breaking film, historian Tom Holland explores how a new religion - Islam - emerged from the seedbed of the ancient world, and asks what we really know for certain about its rise. The result is an extraordinary detective story. Traditionally, Muslims and non-Muslims alike have believed that Islam was born in the full light of history. But a large number of historians now doubt that presumption, and question much of what Muslim tradition has to tell us about the birth of Islam.

Deeyah Khan investigates the lives of people who have left Islam as they face discrimination, ostracism, psychological abuse and even violence in the UK and around the world. In Britain, many ex-Muslims are forced to lead double lives and hide their true beliefs because of the stigma they face in their own communities. Deeyah speaks to former Muslims at risk of suicide, self-harm and abuse from their closest family members and reveals how some senior Bangladeshi British imams - mainstream figures in society - have called for the execution of atheist bloggers in Bangladesh.

Jésus, figure fondatrice du christianisme, est aussi un personnage exceptionnel dans le Coran. Pourquoi ? Comment ? Les auteurs des séries documentaires Corpus Christi, L’origine du christianisme et L’Apocalypse mènent l’enquête auprès de vingt-six des plus grands spécialistes mondiaux, y compris des chercheurs de tradition musulmane : des historiens des débuts de l’islam, des philologues, des épigraphistes, des historiens du christianisme oriental, des historiens du judaïsme rabbinique et des spécialistes de l’histoire du Coran. Les sept épisodes prennent pour point de départ une lecture minutieuse de tous les termes de deux versets de la sourate IV du Coran, évoquant à leur manière la crucifixion de Jésus "en apparence", avant d’ouvrir peu à peu la discussion à toutes les questions que pose le texte, tant dans ses dimensions théologiques que littéraires et historiques. C’est au carrefour des trois formes du monothéisme, dans la continuité du judaïsme de Moïse et du judéo-christianisme de Jésus, que nous mène cette enquête qui cherche à reconstituer l’émergence de l’islam dans une région païenne, très marquée pourtant par les influences bibliques et la proximité des églises syriaques.
