Hassan Alkatib presents a new educational documentary on Islam and Islamic beliefs. Scripted by Sheikh Bahmanpour.
The film explores aspects of Islamic creed; such as the oneness of God (Tawhid); the two attestations or declaration of faith (Shahadatayn); the miraculous Quran; the prophethood of Muhammed, the final messenger of God; other prophets in Islam, such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus; and life after death. The film also touches upon other areas; such as conversion to Islam; Sunni and Shia; Science in Islam; and Islamic civlisation.
Brian Haw, a peace campaigner, staged the longest protest outside the British Houses of Parliament. His campaign started in June 2001 in protest over the criminal sanctions on Iraq that led to the deaths of half a million children.
His activism became ever more important after 9/11, as Bush and Blair launched wars against Afghanistan and Iraq. The police and authorities continuously harrassed Brian and made various attempts to remove and restrict him.
In 2011, he spent six months in hospital and later died of lung cancer. One year after his death, filmmaker Hassan Alkatib, looks back at his amazing achievement and documents his story with exclusive never-seen-before footage of his life in Parliament Square. Watch the Trailer

The Documentary has been given a top rating on Press TV’s website.
“This is one of the best films on the Libyan Revolution I have seen anywhere.”

“By far the most compelling and in depth video yet describing the events unfolded in Benghazi’s uprising. Great & Benevolent.”
“Brilliant. This story shows the world that ordinary people can change the world. This video makes shame of those who say ‘what can I do by myself? I can change nothing’.”

This documentary shows how a prison massacre in 1996 proved to be the main catalyst that led to the uprising in the city of Benghazi, Libya. The programme explores how a 48-year old father of two sacrificed his life to enable the people to liberate the city and end years of injustice, oppression and misery at the hands of Muammar Gaddafi. Religious freedoms and unity have been the highlight of the revolution in Benghazi and the great legacy of Omar Mukhtar still lives on in the hearts of the people.

Hassan Alkatib’s documentary film on the 5th Viva Palestina aid convoy to Gaza was aired on Press TV in May 2011. Just less than four months after the murderous Israeli attack on the Mavi Marmara and despite nine civilians being killed, the volunteers on the aid mission were more determined than ever before to achieve their goal and raise awareness of the plight of the Palestinians.
