In 1929, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (Rod Steiger) is still faced with the 20-year long war waged by patriots in Libya to combat Italian colonization and the establishment of The Fourth Shore - the rebirth of a Roman Empire in Africa. Mussolini appoints General Rodolfo Graziani (Oliver Reed) as his sixth governor to Libya, confident that the eminently accredited soldier can crush the rebellion and restore the dissipated glories of Imperial Rome.
Omar Mukhtar (Anthony Quinn) leads the resistance to the fascists. A teacher by profession, guerrilla by obligation, Mukhtar has committed himself to a war that cannot be won in his own lifetime. Graziani controls Libya with the might of the Italian Army. Tanks and aircraft are used in the desert for the first time. The Italians also committed atrocities: killing of prisoners of war, destruction of crops, and hamletting populations behind barbed wire.
Despite their bravery, the Libyan Arabs and Berbers suffered heavy losses, their primitive weaponry doesnt match for mechanized warfare; despite all this, they continued to fight, and managed to keep the Italians from achieving complete victory for 20 years. Graziani was only able to achieve victory through deceit, deception, violation of the laws of war and human rights, and by the use of tanks and aircraft.
Although Mukhtar and his fellow warriors used primitive weaponry, Graziani admitted and witnessed his adversarys skill in waging guerrilla warfare. In one scene, Mukhtar refuses to kill a defenseless young officer, instead giving him the Italian flag to return with. Mukhtar says that Islam forbids him to kill captured soldiers and demands that he only fight for his homeland, and that Muslims are taught to hate war itself.Italian authorities banned the film in 1982, claiming that it was /damaging to the Italian Army\\s honor/?!?!?!

In the Name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful,
May Allah send His peace and blessings upon the most beloved of Messengers, Muhammad (SAW).
Have we forgotten the purpose of our lives?
Sometimes we think we exist just to have a good time.
So we indulge in satisfying our lusts and desires,
Even if means becoming hypocrites, thieves and liars
We forget the sole reason Allah created our souls.
It is to worship Him alone, until they bury our bones
Never faltering, never shifting, away from our Iman,
Remaining true to Allah as best as we can.
But beyond this belief in our hearts come our actions
Balancing obedience to Allah and appeasing satisfactions
What is a Muslim who forgets the commands of His religion?
One who is blinded by Dunya, and lost all vision?
Have we forgotten that we have one of two destinations?
Hell is for the transgressors, and Jannah is for the patient.
In this test we can enjoy ourselves, and be pleased with our lives,
But the reason we live is to worship Allah, and this will not change until we die.
In the sorrow and regret of the most horrific of days,
We would wish to return to Dunya, only to change our ways.
A Day on which we would beg Allah on our hands and our knees,
Return us to this Dunya! So we can salvage our Deeds!
You have had your chances and received your warnings!
But remember when you slept during the early mornings?!
When you neglected Fajr, and did not keep up with your Salah?
You were cheap and you were greedy, and did not pay your Zakah!
You indulged in the obsession of this Dunya with the sinners,
And prevented your own self the company of the winners.
Who might they be, if you ask as you listen?
The winners are those who answered their Lord in submission.
They obeyed Allah and realized life is mission:
To submit to the One who created you from clay,
and to fear the most horrifying, detrimental of days
These winners are the ones who enjoined in the worship of their Lord:
They kept their covenant with Allah, not breaking one word.
Prayer by prayer, Day by Day,
Holding firmly to the Quraan, while following the Prophet s way.
The best of the Muslims receive Jannah is delight.
Because they fasted through the day and prayed Tahajjud through the night.
They fulfilled the necessary obligations and did more,
They kept their loyalty to the One who they lived and died for.
Let us all reflect, as to how we may be viewed by the Sublime.
Are we of the hypocrites who do not even pray on time?
Of the losers who worship every nickel and dime?
Of the animals who do not treat fellow Muslims with respect?
Of the enemies of Allah whose commands we neglect?
Are we the sinners whose own lives we will regret?
Or have we devoted ourselves to pursuing Paradise?
Of the Muslims whose actions are intelligent and wise?
Of the noble who tell only truth with no lies?
Of the pious who pray every prayer on time?
Let us Never forget our aim for Paradise,
We must worship Allah, through all of the sacrifice.
For those who fall short, Jahannam is their destination.
Allahs Judgement is most Supreme, and His is the best of legislation.
So Ya Allah! We beg of you to guide us the straight path!
And we seek refuge with Your mercy from the torment of Your wrath!
Ya RABB! Grant us patience and let us die in submission!
Let us realize and succeed in the struggles of lifes mission!
We are for You and to You we return,
So grant us refuge from Hellfire s burn!
Grant us the peak of Jannah with the Prophets, martyrs and righteous,
For none exceeds You in Your generocity, O Lord of Kindness!
And send Your peace and blessings upon he who You have sent to guide us,
To make us of the pious, and bring us out of the blindness
All praise is due to You, Lord of the Heavens, the Earth, and all that is between.
Master of the Universe, All-Knower of the Unseen.

Re-discover the being that created mankind and the promise we made to Him before we were even born.

WhyIslam Bus Ad campaign, YOU DESERVE TO KNOW!,
is started on February 9, 2009, with ads on more than 140 San Francisco MUNI buses
Q: What do we mean by 'You Deserve to Know'? Is this an engaging, unique, project name? Is it a publicizing technique? What does 'You Deserve to Know' refer to? What do I deserve to know?
A: 'You Deserve to Know' refers to the right of every person to know what Islam is really about. It also refers to the idea that everyone should be aware that in an age when popular stereotypes about Muslims are undermining a faith and an entire civilization, explaining and clarifying the religion is a moral obligation on Muslims.

Young Muslims is a pioneering national youth organization that has been on the youth scene since the early 90_s. We have established a well organized network of local youth groups that we call NeighborNets (which means network of neighbors) across the United States and Canada. Each NeighborNet is a dynamic youth group which attempts to build a solid understanding of the principles of Islam amongst its members by helping them put these principles into practice. By providing the youth with an Islamic atmosphere where they can form bonds of brotherhood with their peers, they become comfortable with Islam and its teachings. We stress the importance of knowing, understanding, and fulfilling our individual and collective obligations as Muslims
