War & Peace : In the Life of the Prophet Muhammad, salla Allahu alayhi wa Sallam,*[A5] Paperback - 319 pages,by Zakaria Bashier,Published in the UK.Description :War and Peace in the Life of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, seeks to bring into sharper focus the relevance of the Prophets exemplary life in our times. In doing so, the misperception is allayed that Islam is inextricably linked with violence. That Islam preaches and practices the ideals of peaceful coexistence and freedom of faith is brought home with reference to the elucidation of the Qur’anic verses which allow Muslims to wage war, if necessary. The same truth is illustrated by analysing the Prophet's conduct in war and his measures for ensuring peace. All the major battles in the early history of Islam are studied in the wider context of Islamic teachings on war and peace.Zakaria Bashier obtained his BA and M.Litt in Philosophy from the Universities of Khartoum, Sudan and Durham, UK, respectively, and his Ph.D. on Islamic Philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh, USA. He has also been the Vice Chancellor of the University of Juba, Sudan. Table of Contents :---Transliteration Table,---Foreword,---Author's Introduction.---Chapter .
