Journey with author and journalist Rageh Omaar to document the life of the prophet Muhammad. Premieres Tuesday beginning at 8 p.m. on PBS 6.

In a journey both literal and historical, host Rageh Omaar travels to the place of Muhammad’s birth to retrace the footsteps of the prophet, from his humble beginnings in Mecca to his struggles with accepting his prophetic role, from his flight to Medina and the founding of the first Islamic constitution to his subsequent military and political successes and failures — through to his death and his legacy.
