The Pillars of Islam
A two-part programme
1: A Heart Washed with Snow In the hills of Taif, so the ancient story goes, a Bedouin child had a vision. He saw two angels coming to his milk brother, Muhammad, the praised one. The angels opened up Muhammad's ribs and bathed his heart in snow drawn from a silver chalice.
Brian Redhead goes in search of Muhammad, the orphan of Mecca, the camel driver turned visionary, the man who married many wives, the mystic who rode the flying horse Buraq to heaven and whose message of submission still shapes the lives of over 700 million Muslims throughout the world today.
