The life of the Prophet is full of exciting adventures, and this book captures these in a very graphic and vivid manner. The juxtaposition of Arabic calligraphy, beautiful illustrations and fluent narrative makes this book very attractive. I highly recommend it.

Can people learn the wisdom of thinking about others, and not just about themselves?

Muhammad is an honest trader living in Mecca. He is happily married to a wealthy merchant, and they have lovely children. Life should be wonderful. But for Muhammad it isn’t enough. He begins to spend long periods of time alone, thinking deeply about life and his relationship with God.

One day when he is in the mountains Muhammad receives a message from God. He must share it with all those around him, knowing that it will completely change the way in which people understand their lives. But will anybody believe in his message? What if some people don’t want to listen?

This is the story of the life of the Prophet Muhammad, the man who brought to the world the message of Islam, a religion that today has millions of followers around the globe.
