Life and Teachings of the Prophet Muhammad
Books on Seerah or the life of the Prophet exist in great numbers. These are no doubt valuable books in their own right. However, one aspect of Seerah still remains to be highlighted. And that is, the relevance of seerah in the modern world. It is a subject which, despite its great importance, has yet to be treated with sufficient thoroughness. Life and Teachings of the Prophet Muhammad has been written with the aim of addressing the mind of the modern man. The modern man thinks in terms of science and not in terms of miracles. He thinks in terms of peace and not in terms of war. He is more interested in solutions to human, social and economic problems, rather than descriptions of political and military conquests. A thing becomes understandable to the modern man only when it is presented within the framework of reason rather than beliefs. The book, therefore, aims to fulfill modern intellectual requirements, focusing on the relevance of the Prophet of Islam in contemporary global context. It emphasizes the peaceful method followed by the Prophet. By following the peaceful method, the Prophet was succeeded in bringing about a bloodless revolution in Arabia. This is relevant in the global context today. With curiosity about Islam having arisen in people, there is an urgent need for an objective, in-depth study of Islam in the light of Prophet’s life and teachings, which this book aims to fulfill.
