In this exploration of the seerah (the life of the Prophet Muhammad), author Ekram Haque connects the challenges and obstacles the Prophet faced with the current tribulations of daily living for believers all over the world.
Haque combines commentary and study of relevant passages of the Quran with primary sources of the seerah from the period, when scholars all across the Muslim world were writing about the Prophet's life and times. Haque stretches the narrative backward to look at the Prophet's ancestors and forward to his millions of modern followers. In addition to providing an in-depth examination of the seerah, Haque widens the scope of his book to explain the Prophet's life to believers of all Abrahamic faiths—Islam, Christianity, and Judaism.
Haque draws parallels between the Prophet's teachings and what is written in the Gospels and the Torah, making the case that both foretold the Prophet's coming. He shows that all three Abrahamic religions originated from a single source and the belief systems and values of the three have more similarities than differences.
These comparisons are explained in clear detail for anyone willing to approach the Seerah with an open heart and mind.
