This entry is one of a series of articles covering religions depicted on TV as being true. For full details and a list of the other religions covered, go to the introduction.

Nope. No one's touching this one with a bargepole. Although having much in common with Judaism and Christianity, Islam has particular beliefs about the depiction of its prophet, Mohammed, making it hard to make series featuring him, at least. In fact, the only vaguely Islamic show I could think of is Born of Fire, which includes djinn and other figures from Islamic mythology.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
