The world has not lacked for heroes or great personalities, yet most of them distinguished themselves in one field or another, unlike the unlettered Prophet, Muhammad ibn Abdullah. This man was a towering personality who excelled in many diverse fields; as statesman, general, teacher, lawmaker, social reformer, exemplary father and husband.
His honesty and integrity were known and respected by all, even his enemies. In spite of all this, it must be said that the truth is about one whom George Bernard Shaw described as: that wonderful man who is unknown to many outside the Muslim world. In this book, Abdul Waheed Khan has attempted to feature out the true personality of the last messenger of Allah to demolish all the distortions and misconceptions which have been propagated by biased or ignorant writers and hopefully, to induce in the reader a sense of reverence and respect for this greatest man in the history of the world. This book is really a valuable one no reader can dispense with. In addition, the book has been revised and annotated by Sameh Strauch.
