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.
