Tuesday on TV: Learn about "The Life of Muhammad"

The Life of Muhammad (7, 8 and 9 p.m., PBS/Ch. 7) is three one-hour documentaries airing back-to-back-to-back - none of which depict any images of Muhammad or any dramatic re-constructions of his life, in keeping with Islamic tradition.

- "The Seeker" (7 p.m.) examines the world into which Muhammad was born, his marriage to his first wife, Khadijah, as well as his first revelations and the profound impact they had on his life and on the lives of those closest to him.

- "Holy Wars" (8 p.m.) focuses on key events in Muhammad's life, including the Night Journey to Jerusalem, his departure from Mecca and the eight-year war with the Meccan tribes.

- "Holy Peace" analyzes events during his later life, including the introduction of the moral code known as Shari'a and the concept of jihad.
