Publisher Comments:

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.

Gregory Arnold, July 12, 2012 (view all comments by Gregory Arnold)
I read this back in the 1970's but it has stuck with me. I was curious about the origins of Islam back then as a young man in my 20's, since I was curious about all relegions and what made them different from one another. This book is more relevent now than it has ever been. Sir John Glubb's account is well written and is sound; in addition his long association with the Arab world gives his book a side of the story most westerners never think about. Just as most people here in the U.S. are hazy about the origins of Christianity they really have no clue as to how Islam began, this book will clear that up and astound the reader as to the closeness both faiths share, as well as Judaism. I highly recommend this book to for all whom want a clearer picture of Islam, the Arab way of life and thinking.
