Book Review
Muhammad: The Prophet of Islam by Prof. Fazl Ahmed. Idara Isha’at-E-Diniyat, New Delhi, India (, 2007; 112 pages, ISBN 8171014003.

This extremely short book encapsulates the life of Prophet Muhammad and a few important aspects of his teachings. The Prophet was born in Makkah in 570 AD, and died at the age of 63 in Madinah. I found this book easy to read and gained a greater insight into Islam (an Arabic word meaning "surrender" or "submission"). I initially took up this book for study as I believe one to be in a better position to make a judgment on Islam by learning about the founder. However, Muslims believe Adam to have first brought Islam to humanity. Muhammad’s was a life devoted to Allah from a young age and his life displayed much love and humility. There are far more detailed biographies on the Prophet but this one should certainly whet the reader’s appetite for immersing themselves in things pertaining to Islam – Heathclyff St James Deville (Theosophy Downunder April 2009)
