9780028643717: Muhammad (Critical Lives)

Rather than settling in to the comfortable life of a merchant, Muhammad had a vision of himself bringing the message of the one God to his idolatrous people. Coverage includes: the claim to prophethood--Muhammad's teachings, and his first coverts; the Muslim flight to Medina, Muhammad's battles, and the eventual bloodless Muslim conquest of Mecca; Muhammad's political victory in the Arabian peninsula, and wars with Byzantium and Persia; the death of Muhammad, and the ways in which his message lived beyond him, and Muhammad'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, both peaceful and fundamentalist.

Book Description Pearson Professional Education, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. 208 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Muhammad was a religious visionary and political leader. Raised in the harsh Arabian Peninsula and orphaned while still a child, this unlikely leader and military genius received a calling to transform his society from a collection of raiding tribes into one of the world s most progressive societies. His message of monotheism and righteousness motivated an entire people to abandon idolatry and spread the word of God to surrounding nations. Although he was a military genius, his greatest accomplishments came from the religion he preached: Islam, which called its adherents to lead a life of prayer, charity, and contemplation. The second largest religion in the world, both Islam s prophet and its values are today often misunderstood by adherents and outsiders alike.This concise, informative biography explores: Muhammad s background and boyhood, as well as the culture and society in which he livedA look at Muhammad as a family man, and how his personal life was a testament to his high regard for womenMuhammad s mission as a prophet and his new religion s philosophy on topics ranging from monotheism to interfaith relationsThe Qur an and how it was revealed, how Muslims view it in their religious life, and the concept of Jihad from Muhammad s perspective.
