Publisher Comments:
The Koran descended upon a single man in the brief period of 23 years, during which Muhammad managed to unite the peoples of Arabia in one of history's great religious movements. Follow Muhammad's accomplishments and assess his great influence on Islam in this heavily illustrated account of his life, teachings, and contributions. This introduction to the teachings of Islam through the biography of its great prophet is a story that will captivate and inform curious Westerners. Featured throughout are illuminated pages of the Koran, art reproductions, maps, and color photography, all bringing Muhammad's remarkable contributions to life.

Book News Annotation:
This biography is divided into three sections: Arabia Before Muhammad, The Life of the Prophet, and the Essence of Islam. Though the life of Muhammad is the central focus, the author also includes historical, geographical, and political information regarding the Islamic world, both in the past and the present. Khan also devotes a portion of the book to understanding the Koran and its effect on today's Islam. Includes a glossary and bibliography and numerous pictures of Islamic art, artifacts and architecture.
