About two or so years I ago, I conducted a survey on Muslim TV opinions and habits and many of you took it and gave us your valuable feedback and opinions. This was for a project that I was working on with my dear friend Navid Akhtar called Alchemiya TV. Many of you know Navid, for those that don’t he is an established and successful media figure having been trained by the BBC and has produced many programmes for both radio and TV. He also set up and ran his own media company called Gazelle Media. You may also remember the Channel 4 series, Ramadan Diaries, which Navid was a key figure and producer for.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Mustafa Gouverneur the director of the documentary “The Blessed Tree” and he gifted me a copy of his film.
This is the story of the discovery of the tree under which the Prophet Muhammad rested when he was a Youth when travelling to the land of Shaam (modern day Jordan, Syria and Palestine). The tree is the only living plant for 100s of square kilometers and archaeologists have found ruins nearby of an ancient monastery from which Bahira the monk identified the Prophet Muhammad. The DVD is available in the UK from ZamZam http://www.zamzam.tv/uk/products-page/films/the-blessed-tree/ for £11.95 + £1.50 postage & packaging.
This is a must see, it will uplift you and fill you with wonder and awe that we have today a living thing which interacted with the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and grant him peace).
Get a copy of it today!
If you can organise a screening in your community let me know, I’ll see if I can get someone to supply copies of the DVD at wholesale prices for sale at the screening.
Hope you and family are well. I just read your posting on Deenport regarding the Blessed Tree by Mustafa Gouverneur.
HUbooks would be more than happy to offer this dvd at a discounted rate for any screenings that are organised if you would like us to. Furthermore, we will put on a special offer for the weekend for this DVD and retail it at £9.99 (plus P&P) on our website following your recommendation on Deenport.
