By Mary on May 20, 2004
Format: Paperback
I really love this book! I started this book seeking to gain more knowledge about Islam and who the Muslims know as the last Prophet. Of course I started with some doubts...first of all, the book is, well, quite a heavy read. Heavy literally...it is kind of like lifting weights (which has totally helped me gain muscle, by the way!). But as I actually began reading, I found myself completley astonished by the amazing writing style and literary techniques used by the author in describing such an influential and completely wonderful man. My favorite part about the author's writing style was that he would take almost every instance and analyze it, pulling it into a modern day perspective, allowing Americans like myself to understand the tribal way Arabia was and how it became completely transformed into a place that promoted womens' rights and the equality of all people..
This is a real page turner! I have spent hours completely engrossed in this book, quenching my thirst for knowledge. I am amazed by the contrast of the personalities of the people as Muslims in comparsion to their personalities before the advent of Islam in Arabia. They were transformed from war starting, alocohal drinking, womanizing gamblers to pious, rightous men who worried about their brothers in Islam before they even thought about themselves.
This is a MUST MUUUUSSSTT read for all those who want to earnestly learn about Islam and Muslims.I would like to commend Salahi on his honest effort. It definitely must have taken many years of reserach to ensure the validity of the claims that were made in the book. That's another thing! Everything in this book is cited! Unlike many authors, Salahi didn't just decide whatever he was saying was right and stick it in the market.

I highly recommend this thorough introduction to the life of the Prohpet Muhammed. Written by a Saudi journalist, it not only develops valuable insights into the life of this great man, but also provides the reader with an understanding of the culture and times of pre-Islamic Arabia. Economic, socio-cultural, religious, and anthropological themes are delevolped in a seamless fashion, and the reader is carried along by superb story telling. This would be a great book for non-Muslim's interested in learning about the origins and fundamental beliefs of Islam, the world's second or third largest religion, and the fastest growing of the three "Abrahamic" or "revealed" faiths.

Al'hamdulillah What a read!! This is a book for everyone - Non-muslims, New Muslims and Muslims with some knowledge. Allah (SAW) has gifted Adil Salahi with a talent for excellant story telling from start to finish. When you begin to read this book you are fully immersed in the World of this Great and final prophet of God. This book makes you go through alot of emotions. Believe me I COULD NOT put this book down. A soon as I finished it I was dying to visit the land where it all happended. So I did, I went to Haj!!

This work is a very good biography of Muhammad. I found the work to be very well written and an easy read. If you are interested at all in the Middle East, religions or the culture of Muslim people throughout the world then learning about the single most influential person for over a billion people would be a good place to start, and this book does an outstanding job detailing this man's life.

One of the things I was most unaware of before reading this book was just how much adversity the first Muslims faced. It is certainly reminiscent of the first Christians. Muhammad and his followers after their exile from Mecca were extremely impoverished. In the end I think these hardships helped to solidify his position amongst his followers since those who followed him were the most committed.

As I said this is a very good work. I also liked how the author goes through and explains some of the names and talks a little about pronunciation of Arabic. It just helps the reader's flow when they have a little better grasp on the words.

All in all, if you are looking for a biography of Muhammad then look no further. I highly recommend this book.

Being a modern muslim I have wanted to learn more about theroots of my religion for a long time. Due to the inadequate supply ofEnglish translations or English written works this has proved to be a problematic journey.
I came across this book through searching Amozon one lonley night and it proved to be a thrilling read. The book provides and un-biased and factually based account of events that lead to the development of one of the worlds largest religions. 5 Stars

I have really enjoyed this book. It has taught me a lot about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It is an alluring book to anyone who truly wants to learn the truth about the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It grabs at your heart to know that there were actually people that were so righteous, they would give anything for the cause of Islam. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was the leader of this clan.
