Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet by Deepak Chopra

Convincing people to abandon their traditional Gods and take on monotheism was indeed a monumental feat for a goat herder who could neither read nor write.

Muhammad appoints a judge to decide those Jews’ fates, and then carried out the judge’s decision that all the men should be beheaded, and all their wives and daughters enslaved. As a Muslim, I have read a number of books on the life of Muhammad, but this book stands out as a category of its own.

The first third was interesting, about Muhammad growing up an orphan and snippets of his life and personality viewed through third parties.

I also understand the author’s motivation in writing the book – exploring how an apparently common man had the revelation of God. Published September 21st by HarperOne first published April 1st Apr 08, Sanjida Kamal rated it liked it. maboma

The author has made it very clear that the work is a novel. Firstly the book does not claim to be a work of history, rather it is a work of fiction.

I wrote it to show that holiness was just as confusing, terrifying, and exalting in the seventh century as it would be today. However, his short and direct prose works well in the context of this fictionalized biography.

The book never attempts to be a narration on the entire life story of the Prophet, yet the author was able to take you through his life with snippets as told through the eyes of his wife, his daughter, a Jewish holy man etc. In fact, I would argue that you come away from it knowing less, not more, about Islam.

Allah and Muhammad are particularly hard on a group of Jews who seemed to have betrayed Muhammad by making a deal choprs Islam’s foes, and choppra to try to come back into Islam’s ,ahoma. I am glad I read it because I learned so much – about the incredible rise of Islam and its chora, and about the life of Muhammad.

In short, the novel itself is worth reading, but the afterword only feeds into existing prejudices and stereotypes about Islam. Sep 28, Shaik rated it it was amazing.

Novelistically, the book did not seem to go anywhere, to make any point. This being said, this book lacks historical accuracy. We get a deep sense of the humanity of the extraordinary person that Muhammad was, his search for answers from a greater being and the profound impact on his life when he received the first revelation of the Quran via the angel, Gabriel.
