Description

Muslims all over the world see Muhammad as God’s last messenger to mankind, and, for every community that wants to live under God’s guidance, the Prophet Muhammad’s character and conduct is the light showing the way to God’s pleasure. The Prophet’s miracle was to give to humanity a system of life that provides for all the needs of body, mind and soul, and elevates man’s aspirations towards a sublime ideal. Through his actions, he showed the way to achieve all this in a very simple, direct and truthful manner. He built a state that was dedicated to truth and justice and to the liberation of man throughout the world. He wrote to emperors, kings and rulers, calling on them to believe in God and to follow His message, yet, at the same time, he lived a life of poverty, leaving aside the riches that were offered to him.

At a time when the Prophet is much maligned by writers, cartoonists, and various other detractors this book aims to show Muhammad’s true character in detail, both in its most everyday and most extraordinary moments.

 

Adil Salahi’s writings include the acclaimed Muhammad: Man and Prophet and Pioneers of Islamic Scholarship, and the English translation of the 18-volume In the Shade of the Qur’an. His main career has been in radio and print journalism, and for over 30 years he was editor of ‘Islam in Perspective’, a twice-weekly full-page column in the Arab News, a Saudi daily newspaper.

1 review for Muhammad His Character and Conduct

  1. site_admin

    “Muhammad unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam. Believed by Muslims to be a messenger and prophet of God, Muhammad is almost universally considered by Muslims as the last prophet sent by God to mankind. While non-Muslims regard Muhammad to have been the founder of Islam, Muslims themselves consider him to have restored the unaltered original monotheistic faith of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. In “Muhammad: His Character and Conduct”, author Adil Salahi draws upon his many years of experience and expertise as a Muslim and the editor of “Islam in Perspective” (a twice-weekly full-page column in the Saudi daily newspaper ‘Arab News’) to deftly write a 296 page analytical biography to defend against contemporary detractors of Muhammad’s life, work, and legacy. Extraordinarily well written and presented, “Muhammad: His Character and Conduct” is a valued contribution to the growing body of Islamic literature and very highly recommended for community and academic library Islamic Studies collections, as well as the personal reading lists of non-specialist general readers with an interest in Muhammad and Islam.” — Midwest Book Review, http://www.midwestbookreview.com
