But honestly, it lacks a lot of details - it is just a general overview... because many of the most important characters of the seerah cannot be shown on tv (e.g. Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, Abu-Bakr As-Sideeq (RA), Rasulullah (SAW) himself etc..) and some people say that they were not supposed to show Hamza on tv. Also many other very important battles were not mentioned.
A full understanding of the seerah would be by lectures/ books - not possible with movies.
However it is a good movie.

Yeah, especially when you see the resilience of some of the fighters (RA). Like there was this one man, to stop himself from retreating he dug a pit and buried himself upto the knees and carried on the fight.
I think his name was Thaabit bin Qais (sp?
) Not sure though
I heard on one of the lectures how brave the Sahabah (RA) were in battle. 3 of the sahabah (I can't remember their names and i can't remember which battle
) made a challenge to penetrate through the enemy's ranks and come out from the other side of the army and then come back again and do the same (they actually did that), and again and again. Like a 3-man-saw. Immensely brave.
And remember Jafaar Ibn Abu Talib who was then given the title of "Jafaar At-Tayyar" meaning Jafaar the flyer - who was carrying the banner at the Battle of Mu'tah against the Romans. Then his right arm (holding the banner) got cut-off, he then lifted it with his left (caring more about the banner of Islam than his arm) then it got cut-off also... he then lifted it between the parts left of his cut arms.... and then he got stabbed in his abdomen and became a shaheed.
Rasulullah (SAW) gave him the laqab/title of Jafaar At-Tayyar (Jafaar the flyer) because Allah replaced his cut-off arms with two beautiful wings in Paradise.
