Who is Muhammad? is a book written by Islamic scholar Ja’far Sobhani


SHAFAQNA- Ja’far Sobhani is a Islamic scholar. He is the author of scholarly books and articles.

According to rahyafte :   This book is being published in response to a recent showing of an insulting movie on the Internet against the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him. In spite of his humble circumstances as a poor orphan, Muhammad was sent by God as His final Messenger to humanity. His prophetic career of little more than two decades changed the face of world history. He called the peoples of the world to the worship of the One God, “Lord of all beings.” He laid the foundations of the richest and most universal civilization in human history. Islamic civilization grew out of the Prophet Muhammad’s universal call to the faith in the One God (tawhid), and the brotherhood of all believers in Him. The Prophet of Islam perfected the same message which was preached by earlier prophets of God, such as Abraham, the spiritual ancestor of all monotheists and physical father of Muslims and Jews, and Moses and Jesus, on whom may there be peace.

In this book, the events of the Prophet’s life, from the day he (S) was born and even before that day for background information-until the day he (S) died, have been recorded. Beyond enumerating the events of the Prophet’s life, lessons and morals from those events have been drawn to point out the significance of an event and the wisdom behind the Prophet’s actions or deeds, the Islamic ruling that is derived from a particular incident, and the impact that a given event should have on our character or choice of deeds is indicated.

The book gives a comparison between the diverse attitudes. It not only speaks about the life of Muhammad but also discusses the diverse attitudes.

The book was originally written in the Persian language and has been translated to English.

In 2013 Tahrike Tarsile Qur’an published an abridged English translation.

The book won the 2006 Iran’s Book of the Year Awards in the History of Islam category.
