The Veneration of the Prophet in Islamic Piety,
[A5] Paperback - 377 pages,
by Anne Marie Schimmel.


Book Description :

The important role of the Prophet Muhammad, Peace & Blessings upon Him, in the everyday lives of Muslims is usually overlooked by Western scholars and has consequently never been understood by the Western world. Using original sources in the various Islamic languages, Annemarie Schimmel explains the central place of Muhammad in Muslim life, mystical thought, and poetry. She sees the veneration of the Prophet  Muhammad, Peace & Blessings upon Him, in as having many parallels in other major religions.

In order to understand Muslim piety it is necessary to take the into account the long history of the veneration of Muhammad, Peace & Blessings upon Him. Schimmel discusses aspects of his life, birth, marriage, miracles, and heavenly journey, all of which became subjects for religious devotions. By using poetic texts and artistic expressions and by examining daily Muslim religious practices, Schimmel shows us the gentler side of Islamic religious culture, providing a much-needed understanding of religion as it is experienced and   practiced in the Islamic world.

This is the first book in English to deal with all aspects of the veneration of the Prophet Muhammad, Peace & Blessings upon Him. It is an expanded version of Schimmel's Und Muhammad Ist Sein Prophet, originally published in  German in 1981.
