All the founders of the universal religions, Muhammad is the closest to us in time, vet he is barely known to most people in the West en world. This book seeks to portray him in mortal shape.he was a seventh-century Arabian tribesman, untaught and ordinary. Then one day in a cave, he had a vision that spoke to him: O Muhammadi Thou art the Messen ger of God, and I am Gabriel. This stunning supernatural force transformed him and endowed him with an eloquence that led him to persuade and crusade throughout Arabia putting an end to paganism, and to create around himself a new moral and ethical framework for his society, There is no God but God, and Muhammad is His Prophet was the simple message. But the revelations it bore and his later visions and dreams recorded by his followers in the Koran, bring his teachings to the heights of religious thought…and they also show us the bases for many of the modern political aspects of Islam. Knowing something of Islam’s origins in his visions and dreams, and in his life, may well help us to understand its adherents and their activities in the twenty-first century.
