The Prophet Muhammad: A Biography | [Barnaby Rogerson]

The Prophet Muhammad: A Biography

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Poison within the honey"

    The author appears to be admiring the prophet, but portrays him as a person who would support his followers even if they are wrong. A man who chases after his love for women, to the point of a controversial revelation to get him to marry a woman already married to his previously adopted son.
    The author describes prophet Mohamed peace be upon him as picking a fight with the jews in Madina, because he didn't like their presence. And skips the betrayal of the jews to the muslims in war and their attempts to assassinate the prophet to show the brutality of an undeserved punishment.
    The description of how the Quran was revealed to the prophet is made to convey doubt within the wording of the Quran.
