Below is a short list of films and TV series we recommend. The Message heads the list, of course, as it is a well-loved classic on the life of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. After that, no particular order is followed. All are great.
In Dervish Nation Resources, we intend to provide multilingual references for good films, videos, books and hard-to-find items.
Your suggestions are welcome. Please comment.
