[On a Wing And a Prayer: An American Muslim Learns to Fly] delves deep into the hearts and minds of a devout Muslim family living in small-town America. They laugh, they hope and they experience heartache, victories and failures in pursuit of their American dream. These modern-day Americans cast off stereotypes and refuse to succumb to victimhood despite being denied privileges afforded most other Americans.
The data in this excellent film counters the perceptions formed by those watching mainstream media. We think it should be shown as oftern as possible, maybe even as one minute soundbites (as a psa/commercial) to counter the misleading ideas that have been formed.

A positive, truthful image of Muslims brings about peace. One of the greatest forces of peace in our society right now –UPF, that has brought you these wonderful films. Support UPF.

[Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet] provided the historical background necessary to understand the Islamic religion…students not only enjoyed the film, but also learned a great deal by watching it.

[Inside Islam] was enlightening—especially the surprising data…that the vast majority of Muslims believe in freedom of speech.
The general reaction to [Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet] was positive, there were many aspects of Islam that we were not aware.
