Classroom Ideas

After watching the clip could be used to launch a class discussion. Do the students think that all the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad recited to his followers were written down exactly as he received them from the Angel Jibril? Students should list reasons for their answers. "What do Muslims believe? What other religions have examples of divine revelation?"
