As Mohammed becomes the most popular name for boys born in Britain, five men reflect on their lives and about what it's like to be a Mohammed in this country today.

As Mohammed - in all its spellings - becomes the most popular name for boys born in Britain, five men reflect on their lives and about what it's like to be a Mohammed this country today.

In the first in a new series, hard working medical student Mohammad Razai tells of his journey to Cambridge. Brought up in Kabul, his family were persecuted and disappeared in prisons. He was sheltered anxiously behind closed doors, but life was so dangerous his family told him to escape. Mohammad tells of his trek across the world and how it was a further struggle arriving to Britain without documents and barely any English.

Across the series we talk to a car mechanic in Huddersfield, a Scottish care worker and a rapper who converted to Islam, taking on the name Mohammed.

Producer: Sarah Bowen.
