[-A4] Paperback - 380 pages, Revised Edition,
by Dr. Martin Lings, (aka Abu Bakr Siraj al-Din),
Published by Islamic Texts Society, Cambridge,




Description :


Acclaimed worldwide as the definitive biography of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, may Allah Shower His Blessings upon him & give him Peace, in the English language. Martin Lings’ aka Abu Bakr Siraj'ud-Din's life of Muhammad is unlike any other. Based on Arabic sources of the eighth and ninth centuries, of which some important passages are translated here for the first time, it owes the freshness and directness of its approach to the words of men and women who heard Muhammad, May Allah Shower His Blessings upon him & give him Peace, speak and witnessed the events of his life. 



Martin Lings has an unusual gift for narrative. He has adopted a style which is at once extremely readable and reflects both the simplicity and grandeur of the story. The result is a book which will be read with equal enjoyment by those already familiar with Prophet Muhammad, may Allah Shower His Blessings upon him & give him Peace, life and those coming to it for the first time.
