An accessible biography of Muhammad, Islam's founding prophet, tracing his development from orphan to political leader and providing insights into his personal life and tastes. --New York Times Book ReviewA joyous read, presenting the Prophet Muhammad both as human and humane. Insightful, thoughtful and thought provoking! --Azar Nafisi, New York Times bestselling author of Reading Lolita in Tehran"A beautifully written, immaculately researched meditation on the impact of the Prophet Muhammad on the modern world. I loved this book!" --Reza Aslan, author of No God but God and Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of NazarethA six-year-old cries in his mother's arms as she draws her last breaths to urge him: "Muhammad, be a world-changer!" The boy, suddenly orphaned in a tribal society that fears any change, must overcome enormous obstacles to unleash his own potential and inspire others to do the same.Fusing details long known to Muslim scholars but inaccessible to popular audiences, Mohamad Jebara brings to life the gripping personal story of Islam's founding prophet. From his dramatic birth to nearly being abducted into slavery to escaping assassination, Muhammad emerges as an unrelenting man on a mission. Surrounding the protagonist are dynamic women who nurture Muhammad; Jewish and Christian mentors who inspire him; and the enslaved individuals he helps liberate who propel his movement.Jebara places Muhammad's life in a broader historical context, vividly evoking the Meccan society he was born into and arguing that his innovative vision helped shape our modern world.
