Prophets serve as intermediaries between the human and divine worlds, granting them a special status in history across diverse religions and cultures. For Muslims, the Prophet Muhammad (570–632 CE) represents the culmination of the line of monotheistic prophets, including Abraham, Moses and Jesus. In his own lifetime, Muhammad overcame opposition and brought reforms, firmly establishing a thriving community of believers which would become a major world civilisation. Today, the Prophet's life and actions continue to inspire the Muslims worldwide. The Prophet Muhammad presents an illuminating portrait of Muhammad in his capacity as God's messenger and an exemplary figure to Muslims. Revealing the challenges and triumphs of prophecy, Stephen Burge examines how prophets have inspired faith communities' relationship with the Divine, and one another. In doing so, this engaging account elucidates the enduring influence of prophecy and the profound legacy of the Prophet Muhammad.

Description :


In the medieval period, the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (the mawlid) was celebrated in popular narratives and ceremonies that expressed the religious agendas and aspirations of ordinary Muslims, including women. This book examines the Mawlid from its origins to the present day and provides a new insight into how an aspect of everyday Islamic piety has been transformed by modernity. The book gives a window into the religious lives of medieval Muslim women, rather than focusing on the limitations that were placed on them and shows how medieval popular Islam was coherent and meaningful, not just a set of deviations from scholarly norms. Concise in both historical and textual analysis, this book is an important contribution to our understanding of contemporary Muslim devotional practices and will be of great interest to postgraduate students and researchers of Islam, religious studies and medieval studies.

Description :


How would one know their role and life purpose unless one receives clear and practical instructions of what God wants and expects of him or her? Here comes the need for Prophethood. Thus, God has sent thousands of Messengers and Prophets to mankind to convey His Message and communicate to us. Every nation on Earth received a Prophet. They all preached the same general Message that there is only one deity worthy of worship. He is the One and Only God, without a partner, son, daughter, or equal. God sent Messengers and Prophets to guide humanity from worshipping created beings and to worship their Creator, the Creator of all things. The Prophets came to teach their people about who their Creator is, how to build a relationship with Him, and how to love Him. The Prophets taught their people that life is only a test, where the successful will enter Paradise eternally, and the unsuccessful will enter the ultimate punishment in the afterlife. Out of the Infinite Mercy and Love of God, God continued to send Messengers with Books from God to guide humanity-- starting with Prophet Adam, including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Jacob, Moses, Prophet Jesus, and Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon them all. Many of the Prophets are found in Jewish and Christian traditions. All the previous Messengers and Books other than the Holy Quran and Prophet Muhammad were sent down only to a specific group of people and were only meant to be followed for a particular period. For example, Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, was one of God's mightiest Messengers, who was sent down with the same general Message of all the previous Prophets but was only sent to the Children of Israel-the nation that lived before us, as their final Prophet because they were disobeying the commandments of God and veering away from the laws sent down by the previous Messenger, Moses, peace be upon him. Whenever God would send Messengers with Revelation, after they passed, people would distort and change the Revelations of God. What was pure Revelation from God-- would be polluted with myths, words of men, superstitions, irrational philosophical ideologies, and idol worship. The religion of God was lost in a plethora of religions. Such as how Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, was sent to reform the previous Message sent before him by the previous Messenger, Moses, peace be upon him. Prophet Muhammad came to reform Prophet Jesus' Message since it was distorted by his followers and did not survive in its original form. When humanity was in the depth of the dark ages, God the Almighty sent his last and final Messenger to mankind, Prophet Muhamad, peace be upon him, and his final Revelation, the Holy Quran, to redeem humanity. The Holy Quran and the final Messenger, peace be upon him, affirmed everything that was revealed to all the previous Messengers in the past. Unlike the past Messengers and Books, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was sent to all of humanity, and there will be no Messenger or Prophet after him, nor will there be a Book after the Holy Quran, as both are meant to be followed by all people, not just a particular group of people, nor are they meant for a particular timeframe; both are meant to be followed by everyone until the end of time. Prophet Muhammad-A summarized story of God's Last and Final Prophet aims to introduce Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, derived from early Islamic Sources, helping you better understand who Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him was and to instill a love for him. Studying the story and life of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is the best way to develop that love for our Prophet. Studying the life of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is an obligation given to us by our Creator and helps us better understand God's final Book, the Holy Quran, and its context.

In every era numerous authors have written books of various sizes on the seerah (life) of Nabi [PBUH]. This service is still continuing and an assortment of gems will continue to be discovered from this vast ocean. There is no doubt that this insignificant individual does not possess the expertise required for this field. However, time and again this idea had surfaced that something should be written on this sacred topic regardless of the result with the hope that it may be a means of my salvation in the hereafter. Thus, I undertook the task of compiling this small book by extracting different aspects from the various books authored on seerah. I have taken special care to ensure that the language is of an understandable and simple level. May Allah Ta'ala crown this effort with His acceptance and allow it to be beneficial for one and all. May it also be a means of my salvation in the hereafter. Hadhrat Moulana Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi Saheb [R.A.]

Description :


Named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most important innovators of the century, Tariq Ramadan is a leading Muslim scholar, with a large following especially among young European and American Muslims. Now, in his first book written for a wide audience, he offers a marvelous biography of the Prophet Muhammad, one that highlights the spiritual and ethical teachings of one of the most influential figures in human history. In the Footsteps of the Prophet is a fresh and perceptive look at Muhammad, capturing a life that was often eventful, gripping, and highly charged. Ramadan provides both an intimate portrait of a man who was shy, kind, but determined, as well as a dramatic chronicle of a leader who launched a great religion and inspired a vast empire. More important, Ramadan presents the main events of the Prophet's life in a way that highlights his spiritual and ethical teachings. The book underscores the significance of the Prophet's example for some of today's most controversial issues, such as the treatment of the poor, the role of women, Islamic criminal punishments, war, racism, and relations with other religions. Selecting those facts and stories from which we can draw a profound and vivid spiritual picture, the author asks how can the Prophet's life remain -- or become again -- an example, a model, and an inspiration? And how can Muslims move from formalism -- a fixation on ritual -- toward a committed spiritual and social presence? In this thoughtful and engaging biography, Ramadan offers Muslims a new understanding of Muhammad's life and he introduces non-Muslims not just to the story of the Prophet, but to the spiritual and ethical riches of Islam.

Description :


The Prophet Muhammad taught the word of God to the Arabs. Within a generation of his death, his followers - as vivid a cast of heroic individuals as history has known - had exploded out of Arabia to confront the two great superpowers of the seventh-century and establish Islam and a new civilization. That the protagonists originated from the small oasis communities of central Arabia gives their adventures, their rivalries, their loves and their achievements an additional vivacity and intimacy. So that on one hand, THE HEIRS OF THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD is a swaggering saga of ambition, immense achievement, self-sacrificing nobility and blood rivalry, while on the other it allows us to understand some of the complexities of our modern world. For within this fifty-year span of conquest and empire-building, Barnaby Rogerson also identifies the seeds of discord that destroyed the unity of Islam, and traces the roots of the schism between Sunni and Shia Muslims to the rivalry of the two individuals who best knew and loved the Prophet: his cousin and son-in-law Ali and his wife Aisha.
