A concise, readable and moving account of the key moments in the eventful life of the Prophet Muhammed. Professor Shawkat Toorawa, Arabic Literature and Islamic Studies, Cornell University Can people rise above being concerned with only themselves and acquire the kindness of thinking about others in the same manner?
The Noble Muhammad is an honest trader living in Mecca. He is happily married to a wealthy merchant, and they have lovely children. Life should be wonderful. But for the Noble Muhammad it isn't enough. He begins to spend long periods of time alone, thinking deeply about life and his relationship with God.
One day when he is contemplating in the Cave of Hira, he receives a message from God. He must share it with all those around him, knowing that it will completely change the way in which people understand their lives. But will anybody believe in his message? What if some people don't want to listen?
This is the story of the life of the Prophet Muhammad, the man who brought to the world the message of Islam, a religion that today has more a billion and a half followers around the globe.
