Yacoub, a young Kuwaiti, pursues truth in Islam. His search takes him to King’s College, London, where he abandons his sexual morals, and then to the University of Arizona for his PhD in the history of Islamic law. In his thesis, he confronts the Sunni hadiths, the words and deeds of the prophet Mohammed. Frustrated by his discoveries that many hadiths are not authentic, he continues as a Muslim, but one no longer grounded in his beliefs.
He engages in an affair with his PhD professor, who bares his child. He kills a child in an auto accident and avoids legal consequences.
As an experiment, he attends Christian worship. He’s intrigued, but he doesn’t get it.
Upon return to Kuwait to teach at Kuwait University, he marries Rabea, who becomes a Christian solely through Bible reading. She can’t convince Yacoub.
Yacoub proceeds with his shrewd lies as he cheats in currency trading and assists the Iraqis in obtaining nerve gas. He flees Kuwait and deserts his family during the Iraqi invasion.
But Rabea is still there waiting when he returns.
See how God saves the reluctant Yacoub. See how much God cares for you.
