The Life of Muhammad by Muhammad by Muhammad Husayn Haykal (translated by Prof. Isma'il al-Faruqi). This scholarly work achieves two objectives admirably: first, a biography which reveals the career of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the full light of historic reality; second, bringing out the essence of Islam, as exemplified in the life of the greatest Muslim. It includes complete coverage of the Prophet's life, a detailed analysis of pre-Islamic Arabia, the situational context of revelation, and a comparative study of the basics of Islamic and Western civilizations. It is based upon a scholarly examination of all of the extant Seerah and Hadith literature (the Prophet's life, his sayings and narrations of his teachings by his contemporaries) with the eye of an objective, scientific, and critical scholar who is well versed in modern historical critical methodology. This volume is an essential text for all English-speaking Muslims and non-Muslims. Islamic Book Service (June 1, 2005), English, Paperback: 736 pages.
