While this text touches on extremely sensitive global and national topics of terrorism, Biography of the Prophet Muhammad - Illustrated is thoroughly educational. Following the September 11th attacks, there has been a constant dichotomy facing Islam and its followers. For example, some Muslims state that Islam is a peaceful religion, yet there continues to be bloodshed in the name of Islam and jihad.
Abdullah ibn Abi Sarh's purpose in writing this book is three-fold: "First, because there is so much persecution and suffering in the name of Islam, the second reason is because there is no other illustrator who dares to create a biography of Muhammad," and finally, "this illustrated book will help people to understand Islam quickly, accurately, and without spending too much time reading the whole Islamic main literatures that are hard to understand." Essentially, the author is trying to portray Islam as it was perceived through the unfiltered eyes of the Prophet Muhammad.
The book is fascinating because of the creativity that Abdullah utilizes in developing the structure of the text.Read more ›
One can tell a good amount of research went into this book. While it is very informative, the story line and pictures transition smoothly and logically, making it an easy read.
Some might say it has a comic book format, for lack of better terminology, but graphic novels are becoming more common, and this would be a graphic history with footnotes, a format quite suited to informing the reader of early Islam's graphic violence. With so much misinformation out there, and with Muslims and Islam no longer just on the other side of the wide ocean, this book comes at a good time to help set the record straight about Islam.
One Amazon commentator gave the book only four stars, but would have given it five stars if the background weren't so dark in places. The online electronic version of the book shows the original is lighter colored and brighter, and the next printing will no doubt address that technical printing glitch. Anyway, considering how inexpensively priced the book is, and how much thought and talent it took to prepare, it deserves nothing less than five stars, and it deserves to be in your hands, and in your library now.
The books that Sarh references in this book (the Quran, Hadith, and ibn Ishaq's The Life of Muhammad) would take a long time to read, much less master and understand it. What Abdullah ibn Abi Sarh has done is to do the most difficult part of a historical inquirer and produced an easy to read graphic novel that's an entertaining read for the average person. The book was well foot-noted so that the layperson wanting to verify what was said and done can check the sources Sarh used in this book: the Quran, Hadith, and ibn Ishaq's The Life of Muhammad.
