Muhammad was the founder of Islam. According to Islamic doctrine, he was a prophet and God's messenger, sent to present and confirm the monotheistic.
Table of contents

If people were willing to follow Allah and his Messenger, the Messenger was willing to let them, and in the end, in many cases that turned out to work well for Islam. Mohammad was probably not any more ruthless than any other great empire builder. Many people have talked about how Constantine was not a very good Christian and did what was necessary to hold his empire. And his lasted quite a while.

Was Muhammad a true prophet of God?

Charlemagne was the same way. He could be ruthless when it was called for. His Empire didn't last to long after his death. The difference between these men and Muhammad is that a billion people don't look to them as the "perfect" example and they do to Muhammad. So while Charlemagne might have killed pagans in a day, no Christian thinks that should be emulated as a good thing to do. But when Muhammad did anything, like marry the wife of a man he had defeated and decapitated on the same day, or consummate a marriage with a nine year old wife, or kept slaves or etc.

There are a lot of people in the world today who think it's perfectly fine to act that way today because Muhammad did it. Peterson doesn't point any of these things out, but they happened. So I would recommend this book. It's well written and you can learn some things about Muhammad. I don't think he tells the whole story about Muhammad, but he does tell an important part of it.

Dec 16, Adelaide rated it really liked it. I didn't know much about Islam or Muhammad before reading this book, and now I understand a lot more about this prophet and the time period during his lifetime. I feel as though I picked up on the cultural aspects of Islam, and I want to learn more about their core beliefs and feel as though I have a good starting point to piece things together.

I appreciate that this book was such a balanced portrayal of his life without biased commentary. Oct 16, Kbmaxwell Maxwell rated it really liked it. A challenging read--the four stars rather than five have to do with the resources the text really lacks--maps, for one, and maybe rather than just an index of names, short even four or five word descriptions of the many many people referenced, and perhaps a pronouncing guide. But this gave me such an increased understanding of pre-Islamic Arabia and the historic context of the rise of Muhammed, plus some comprehension of his role and his personal life.

Leaves you hungry for more. Jul 14, John rated it it was amazing Shelves: Aug 03, Jon Terry rated it really liked it Shelves: Seems like a pretty fair assessment of the guy. Peterson does a good job of putting Muhammad's life and actions in the context of his time. Jan 30, Sharman Wilson rated it really liked it Shelves: I find this book very well-written so far, and actually hard for me to put down! Coming at it now, after reading quite a bit about early Christianity and a bit about world religions, it's accessible and informative.

I love all the Arabic stories he includes to make his points. I miss my Muslim and Jewish friends there, and hope this book will enhance all of these I find this book very well-written so far, and actually hard for me to put down! I miss my Muslim and Jewish friends there, and hope this book will enhance all of these friendships. I wanted to read something that would come at the subject with respect, but not heavily biased one way or the other. So far, so good Finished it, and enjoyed it very much. I really didn't know much at all about Mohammed, and now I feel much more informed.

Peterson gives you the traditional stories as well as what Western scholars have said, and sometimes throws in his own feelings about things. I came away with a greater appreciation for the man millions call "the messenger of God. Nov 18, Tyson rated it really liked it. This book is a little bit more advanced and in depth than other books about Muhammad, but it is very well written and very informative. I felt like it was very unbiased yet still showed lots of respect for Muhammad and what he did while he was alive.

Both good and bad, I guess. Dan Peterson does work, son!

With so much mis-information about what Islam is and isn't, I thought this would be a good way to learn the basics.

Muhammad, Prophet of God

It's very scholarly and I find myself having to read slowly and sometimes re-read. However, I am enjoying it and hope to be able to better analyze information about this fascinating religion from other media sources. I learned a great deal about early Islam. Now I'd like to read something about contemporary Islam. Nov 11, Dil7worth rated it liked it. It gives a lot of information about the times and culture Mohammad lived in. I felt it was helpful to see Mohammad in his own setting. Tells his story without judgement so you can form your own judgment.

May 24, Jean rated it really liked it. A very nice clear short biography of Muhammad, on the scholarly side. Lots of footnotes, a little discussion of alternate interpretations of history, but happily lacking in jargon. A good overview of Muhammad and the early years of Islam. Gives good details about his early life and the battles etc. Feb 03, Steve rated it liked it. Very clear, respectful, unbiased, and interesting biography.

Thanks to my brother-in-law for giving it to me! Jan 19, Amber rated it it was ok.

I read this to help me with a paper I had to write for my class. It's written better than my textbook, but a little too scholarly for me. Jun 30, Katie rated it really liked it Shelves: I wish he had put more of himself into the book, instead of a purely academical treatise. I would have welcomed some opinion or interpretation.

It is full of problems. The Old Testament prophets, through the power of the Holy Spirit, proclaimed many truths about the coming Messiah. These included the deity of Christ and the crucifixion, both of which Muhammad denied. Please consider the following. As you can see, the deity of Christ and the crucifixion are clearly proclaimed in the Old Testament in regard to Jesus.

If the same Holy Spirit move through Muhammad that move through the Old Testament prophets, and there would be no contradiction. Magic was worked on the Prophet so that he began to fancy that he was doing a thing which he was not actually doing. One day he invoked Allah for a long period and then said, "I feel that Allah has inspired me as how to cure myself.

Two persons came to me in my dream and sat, one by my head and the other by my feet. One of them asked the other, "What is the ailment of this man? Is Muhammad's susceptibility to magic a disqualifier for prophethood? The obvious effective "magic" upon someone who is supposed to be a prophet of God casts strong doubt upon his ability to resist evil, be unaffected by the occult, and be able to teach the truth. If Muhammad fancied that he was doing a thing that he was not actually doing, how can he be trusted with anything else, especially the proclaiming the words of God?
