Great British Islam
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00vynh7
Duration: 02:32

As Ramadan approaches, this documentary tells the little-known story of three Victorian gentlemen - William Quilliam, Baron Headley and Marmaduke Pickthall - who embraced Islam at a time when to be a Muslim was to be seen to be a traitor to your country. Through personal journeys of still surviving relatives, the programme looks at their achievements and how their legacy lives on today.

Asalaamu Alaikum bro

Just looked this up and it's being shown on Wed 18 July at 23:15 on BBC One.

No doubt, it will also be on iPlayer for some time after.

Say: "O ye my servants who believe! Fear your Lord, good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world. Spacious is God's earth! those who patiently persevere will truly receive a reward without measure!" [39:10]

Salam alaikum

I'd love to watch this!  Is that Pickthall as in the Quraan translator Pickthall? 

We get BBC channels here, but they're BBC SA, so not the real thing, I guess!  Oh well, as with everything else, I am sure it will make it to our TV some time in the next millenium... Cheesy

Thanks for posting
Salam
S.

p.s I look at these threads with the 2 of you posting in it and it just makes me smile, mashaAllah:)
