Description from the publisher:
-- Given the current prominence of Islam, it has become more important than ever that Westerners -- and Muslims -- gain an accurate look at who the Prophet Muhammad was and what he stood for.
-- Provides a fascinating picture of both Prophet Muhammad and the world in which he lived.
Coverage includes: the claim to prophethood -- ProphetMuhammad's teachings, and his first coverts; the Muslim flight to Medina, ProphetMuhammad's battles, and the eventual bloodless Muslim conquest of Mecca; ProphetMuhammad's political victory in the Arabian peninsula, and wars with Byzantium and Persia; the death of ProphetMuhammad, and the ways in which his message lived beyond him, and ProphetMuhammad's place in history -- his role in Muslim theology and cosmology, the ways he is viewed in different Muslim sects and regions, and the influence of Muhammad today in Islamic movements.
