Synopsis

The Life of the Prophet Muhammad by Leila Azzam, Aisha Gouverneur

This children's book on the life of the Prophet Muhammad is taken from traditional Muslim biographical literature, including 'hadith'. Passages from the Qur'an are used throughout to reinforce the stories. The material is authentic and the style lively and attractive. Although the book has been written for children of 10 to 15 years of age, it can be usefully read by anyone as an introduction because of its completeness and clarity. There are 32 colour illustrations although there has been no attempt to portray either the Prophet or his Companions. The illustrations are representative of traditional Islamic life as lived in many Arab countries and portray scenes that have occurred in those countries for over a thousand years.
