The biggest budget movie in the history of Iranian cinema is about the holiest figure in Islam: the Prophet Muhammed. The film portrays the Prophet's childhood from his birth in Mecca up to the age of 12 when, according to Muslim historians, he meets a Christian monk, Bahira, in the Syrian city of Bosra who foretells that young Muhammad is going to be a messenger of God. In February, Egypt's Al-Azhar Islamic Centre called on Iran to ban the film. Al-Azhar in its statement claimed that production of such films undermines the sanctity and lofty status of the messenger of God.
