The Life and Times of Muhammadby Sir Glubb
Synopses & Reviews
The founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad (571-632 A.D.) brought to the people of Arabia a new religion that completely transformed the Middle East and the world beyond. Glubb, who spent much of his adult life among the Bedouin of Arabia, here describes the social milieu, personality, religious message, family life, battles, and far-reaching influence of the Prophet. In Glubb's accessible account of the life of Muhammad, written for the general reader, the author explains how the age in which Muhammad lived influenced him, and describes the impact his personality had on Islam. Glubb offers insight into the atmosphere, suffused with Jewish, Christian, and polytheist thought, in which the Prophet perceived his religious mission; his attitudes towards women and his relationships with his wives; and the battles he lead to insure the survival of his followers, confronting enemies at Bedr and Uhud and eventually capturing the key city of Mecca.
Widely hailed as the best popular biography of Muhammad, this is a must-read for everyone interested in Islam.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -405) and index.
The first English-language biography of Muhammad (571-632 A.D.), depicting the great prophet and founder of Islam, his life and achievements, and his enormous influence on the modern world.
