Program Description

The events of September 11 left many Americans questioning how such atrocities could be perpetrated in the name of religion: specifically, the religion of Islam. Yet even as U.S. opinion polls reflect a collective sense of mistrust toward a religion few Americans know much about, Islam continues to be the fastest growing religion in the United States today. What is Islam? What do Muslims believe in? And how does their faith shape their lives, their identities, and their political ideologies? FRONTLINE explores these and other questions in "Muslims," a special two-hour report that examines the fundamental tenets of Islam and the causes behind its current worldwide resurgence. Through interviews with dozens of ordinary Muslims from such diverse countries as Iran, Malaysia, Turkey, and the United States, FRONTLINE illuminates the perspectives, conflicts, and tensions that are shaping today's Muslim world.
