The Prophet Muhammad is a hero for all mankind. In his lifetime he established a new religion, Islam; a new state, the first united Arabia; and a new literary language, the classical Arabic of the Qur'an, for the Qur'an is believed to be the word of God revealed to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel. A generation after his death he would be acknowledged as the founder of a world empire and a new civilisation. Any one of these achievements would have been more than enough to permanently establish his genius. To our early twenty-first century minds, what is all the more astonishing is that he also managed to stay true to himself and retained to his last days the humility, courtesy and humanity that he had learned as an orphan shepherd boy in central Arabia. If one looks for a parallel example from Christendom, you would have to combine the Emperor Constantine with St Francis and St Paul, an awesome prospect. Barnaby Rogerson's elegant biography not only looks directly at the life of the Prophet Muhammad, but beautifully evokes for western readers the Arabian world into which he was born in 570 AD.

If you already know the Holy Prophet - This book is the perfect medium to learn more about the Prophet through the Qur'an and the recollections of his immediate family. I wrote it for those who want a simple narrative on the Holy Prophet's life in an easy to understand sequence without too many details of the peripherals. The most appropriate age group would be 'more aware' 10-90 years old. If you are new to learning about the Prophet of Islam - This book will introduce to the real Muhammad, the most compassionate man ever lived on this planet. This book will help you appreciate Muhammad for what he really is and discern from what he has been made to look like by his adversaries. It will also introduce you to his enemies, the most vicious people Muhammad had to contend with, only to bring them out of their misery of ignorance. These were the similar people you hear about in the news still today, those who carry the same name as Muhammad but have the character of his opponents.Book Summary - In this comprehensive, concise, and easy to read chronicle, Abu Moosa Reza has recounted the most defining era of Islam, its birth, at the hands of its first preacher, the Last Prophet Muhammad. By narrating the story of the budding days of Islam through the lenses of the message and the mission of the Holy Prophet, Mr. Reza has covered all critical events in the life of its founder; the events that stimulated many social, political, and intellectual movements throughout Asia and most of Europe. In contrast to many other books on the early history of Islam, this book provides the reader with a deeper perspective of the pre-Islamic sensitivities, biases, and alliances that affected the direction of Islam immediately after the demise of the Holy Prophet, both as a religion and as a political force. Many modern-day synergies and conflicts could be understood after reading this book by realizing the events past and present as a continuum rather than a one-off happening.

In every era numerous authors have written books of various sizes on the seerah (life) of Nabi [PBUH]. This service is still continuing and an assortment of gems will continue to be discovered from this vast ocean. There is no doubt that this insignificant individual does not possess the expertise required for this field. However, time and again this idea had surfaced that something should be written on this sacred topic regardless of the result with the hope that it may be a means of my salvation in the hereafter. Thus, I undertook the task of compiling this small book by extracting different aspects from the various books authored on seerah. I have taken special care to ensure that the language is of an understandable and simple level. May Allah Ta'ala crown this effort with His acceptance and allow it to be beneficial for one and all. May it also be a means of my salvation in the hereafter. Hadhrat Moulana Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi Saheb [R.A.]

Though over the past 1400 years, thousand of books have been written on the different aspects of the life of the Prophet Muhammad (S). Even then it cannot claim to be true and exhaustive picture of his multidimensional life as has been successfully projected in this book.The author has tried to look at his family life from a sociological perspective, an approach different from that of other writers. Her attempt is to place at the disposal of young English speaking people, a wider view of the family life of the Prophet,so that they may learn something from it to make their own lives more fruitful and happy. In the last few years and especially after 9/11,interest in Islam and Islamic literature has increased tremendously. Non believers are in a dilemma. On one hand Islam is suppose to be a religion of peace,while on the other,terrorism association with Muslims is on the rise. By making an attempt to depict an objective picture of the life of Prophet Muhammad(S), the author has tried to underline the fact that Islam is not a religion of violence but of peace and the life of the Prophet provides convincing evidence of the same and whatever is being done under the name of Muslim by a handful people has hardly any relation with Islam. The book may be a source of interest to those non Muslims who are keen to know more about Islam.

This book has been originally written in Tamil by Mr.P. Zainul Abideen under the caption MAAMANITHAR NABIGAL NAYAGAM. The author has aimed at enlightening the Tamil Speaking Public with true knowledge on the greatest leader Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) about whom numerous books have been written by many prominent authors in almost all the languages in the world. The authors contention is anyone who in whatever standpoint may examine, study and research the mettle and nobility of the character of Prophet Muhammad, will arrive at the same conclusion that no man on earth has been as unique, pure, noble, selfless and successful as Prophet Muhammad, the Man Supreme. P. Zainul Abideen is a very powerful orator in Tamil. He is prodigiously well-informed, eloquent, confident, true, honest, sincere, lucid, and simple in style, reaching Gods Message of Islam straight to peoples heart. With profound knowledge in Islam and clarity of thought he is continuously engaged in comparative study of religions. Especially, he serves the non-Muslim brothers and sisters in answering all their questions. In whatever form the questions are framed and whatever confusion might prompt the questions, he answers them right. This book will serve Muslim and non-Muslim brothers and sisters with answers to questions that remain unanswered in their minds for obvious reasons such as bias, prejudice, inhibition, hate and misconception. Even prominent scholars like Michael H. Hart narrates as God speaking to Muhammad direct, and confounds Muhammad as the author of Quran, when he is the conveyor of the Quran. He also confuses between the Quran, the Word of God and the Traditions that are the collections of the Prophets teaching and practice.

The Birth of The Prophet Muhammad

The Birth of The Prophet Muhammad

This book examines the Mawlid from its origins to the present day and provides a new insight into how an aspect of everyday Islamic piety has been transformed by modernity.

In the medieval period, the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (the mawlid) was celebrated in popular narratives and ceremonies that expressed the religious agendas and aspirations of ordinary Muslims, including women. This book examines the Mawlid from its origins to the present day and provides a new insight into how an aspect of everyday Islamic piety has been transformed by modernity. The book gives a window into the religious lives of medieval Muslim women, rather than focusing on the limitations that were placed on them and shows how medieval popular Islam was coherent and meaningful, not just a set of deviations from scholarly norms. Concise in both historical and textual analysis, this book is an important contribution to our understanding of contemporary Muslim devotional practices and will be of great interest to postgraduate students and researchers of Islam, religious studies and medieval studies.

Today, the Prophet's life and actions continue to inspire the Muslims worldwide. The Prophet Muhammad presents an illuminating portrait of Muhammad in his capacity as God's messenger and an exemplary figure to Muslims.
