In this riveting novel, beloved international bestselling author
Deepak Chopra captures the spellbinding life story of the great and
often misunderstood Prophet.
Islam was born in a cradle of tribal turmoil, and the arrival of
one God who vanquished hundreds of ancient Arabian gods changed the
world forever. God reached down into the life of Muhammad, a
settled husband and father, and spoke through him. Muhammad's
divine and dangerous task was to convince his people to renounce
their ancestral idols and superstitious veneration of multiple
gods. From the first encounter, God did not leave Muhammad alone,
his life was no longer his own, and with each revelation the
creation of a new way of life formed and a religion was born.
Muhammad didn't see himself as the son of God or as one who
achieved cosmic enlightenment. His relatives and neighbors didn't
part the way when he walked down the parched dirt streets of Mecca.
There was no mark of divinity. Orphaned by age six, Muhammad grew
up surrounded by dozens of cousins and extended family to become a
trusted merchant. Muhammad saw himself as an ordinary man and that
is why what happened to him is so extraordinary.
Rooted in historical detail, Muhammad brings the Prophet to life
through the eyes of those around him. A Christian hermit mystic
foretells a special destiny, a pugnacious Bedouin wet nurse raises
him in the desert, and a religious rebel in Mecca secretly takes
the young orphan under his spiritual wing. Each voice, each chapter
brings Muhammad and the creation of Islam into a new light. The
angel Gabriel demands Muhammad to recite, the first convert risks
his life to protect his newfound faith, and Muhammad's life is not
a myth but an incredible true and surprisingly unknown story of a
man and a moment that sparked a worldwide transformation.
