From the best-selling author of Islam: A Short History comes an important addition to the Eminent Lives book series. A former Roman Catholic nun and winner of a Muslim Public Affairs Council Media Award, Karen Armstrong shows how Muhammad's life can teach us a great deal about our world. More is known about Muhammad than any other major religion founder, yet he remains mysterious. Born in 570 CE, he spent six decades spreading his message of peace and compassion. Yet for many people today, their knowledge of Muhammad is rife with misconceptions and misinformation, often fueled by bigotry. Armstrong sets the record straight, shattering the myth that Islam is a religion of cruelty and violence. One of the world's leading religious experts, Armstrong is a deeply respected voice in the continuous struggle for interfaith understanding. Her cogent assessment of Muhammad's genius and insightful summary of his authentic beliefs are priceless in this modern world troubled by religious extremism and intolerance.More

Karen Armstrong did justice with this biography
Full of lessons how to live life, how to become a good human being, presents true shape of Islam. Telling right meaning of words like Jihad and other many things which even today's many Muslims don't know. When Prophet P.B.U.H conquered Mecca he forgives all who hurt Him, who force Him to migrate Medina from Mecca . He didn't force anyone to convert to Islam as some of scholars of today misguiding there disciples that converting other to Islam forcefully is good thing. Worth to listen by both Non-Muslims who want to know about Islam and for Muslims who are misguided my illiterate, greedy scholars. Congratulations to Karen Armstrong for this great work. God bless her.
