At the Court of the King of Abyssinia

Peace, one and all…

This beautiful scene comes from The Message, a film version of the birth of Islam.  In this scene, a group of Muslim refugees from Mecca are brought before the King of Abyssinia (the Negus) for his judgement.

The Quranic passage featured in this clip comes from Surah Maryam:

‘Mention in the Quran the story of Mary. She withdrew from her family to a place to the east and secluded herself away; We sent Our Spirit to appear before her in the form of a perfected man.She said, ‘I seek the Lord of Mercy’s protection against you: if you have any fear of Him [do not approach]!’but he said, ‘I am but a Mes-senger from your Lord, [come] to announce to you the gift of a pure son.’She said, ‘How can I have a son when no man has touched me? I have not been unchaste,’ and he said, ‘This is what your Lord said: “It is easy for Me- We shall make him a sign to all people, a blessing from Us.”’ (19:16-21.)
