Named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most important innovators of the century, Tariq Ramadan is a leading Muslim scholar, with a large following especially among young European and American Muslims. Now, in his first book written for a wide audience, he offers a marvelous biography of the Prophet Muhammad, one that highlights the spiritual and ethical teachings of one of the most influential figures in human history. In the Footsteps of the Prophet is a fresh and perceptive look at Muhammad, capturing a life that was often eventful, gripping, and highly charged. Ramadan provides both an intimate portrait of a man who was shy, kind, but determined, as well as a dramatic chronicle of a leader who launched a great religion and inspired a vast empire. More important, Ramadan presents the main events of the Prophet's life in a way that highlights his spiritual and ethical teachings. The book underscores the significance of the Prophet's example for some of today's most controversial issues, such as the treatment of the poor, the role of women, Islamic criminal punishments, war, racism, and relations with other religions. Selecting those facts and stories from which we can draw a profound and vivid spiritual picture, the author asks how can the Prophet's life remain -- or become again -- an example, a model, and an inspiration? And how can Muslims move from formalism -- a fixation on ritual -- toward a committed spiritual and social presence? In this thoughtful and engaging biography, Ramadan offers Muslims a new understanding of Muhammad's life and he introduces non-Muslims not just to the story of the Prophet, but to the spiritual and ethical riches of Islam.

Das schillernde Leben der Boxlegende ganz neu erzählt Muhammad Ali – drei Mal unumstrittener Boxweltmeister – ist eine der schillerndsten Figuren des 20. Jahrhunderts, seine Geschichte verknüpft mit den großen politischen und kulturellen Konflikten seiner Zeit. Für viele ist er ein Symbol für den Kampf für Freiheit und gegen Unterdrückung. Dem Menschen hinter dieser Heldensaga sind wir jedoch nie nahe gekommen. Der Bestsellerautor und Sportlerbiograph Jonathan Eig erzählt dieses außergewöhnliche Leben auf der Basis bisher unbekannter Quellen noch einmal neu. Der »echte Ali« war Pazifist und Boxer, Muslim und treuloser Ehemann, ein Schwarzer, der zum Symbol für den Kampf gegen Rassismus aufstieg, aber seinesgleichen demütigte – ein Leben voller Brüche und Widersprüche.

Muhammad b. ‘Umar al-Waqidi was a Muslim scholar, born in Medina in the 1st Century. Of his several writings the most significant is the Kitab al-Maghazi, one of the earliest standard histories of the life of the Prophet. Translated into English for the first time, Rizwi Faizer makes available this key text to a new, English-speaking audience. It includes an "Introduction" authored jointly by Rizwi Faizer and Andrew Rippin and a carefully prepared index. The book deals with the events of the Prophet’s life from the time of his emigration from Mecca to his death, and is generally considered to be biographical. Bringing together events in the Prophet’s life with appropriate passages of Qur’an in a considered sequence, the author presents an interpretation of Islam that existed in his times. It includes citations from the Qur’ān, as well as poetry that appears to have been inspired by activities during his life. This English translation of a seminal text on the life of Muhammad is an invaluable addition to the existing literature, and will be of great significance to students and scholars in the field of Islamic studies, Islamic history, Medieval history and Arabic literature.

The extraordinary life of the man who founded Islam, and the world he inhabited—and remade. Lesley Hazleton's new book, Agnostic: A Spirited Manifesto, is out now from Riverhead Books. Muhammad’s was a life of almost unparalleled historical importance; yet for all the iconic power of his name, the intensely dramatic story of the prophet of Islam is not well known. In The First Muslim, Lesley Hazleton brings him vibrantly to life. Drawing on early eyewitness sources and on history, politics, religion, and psychology, she renders him as a man in full, in all his complexity and vitality. Hazleton’s account follows the arc of Muhammad’s rise from powerlessness to power, from anonymity to renown, from insignificance to lasting significance. How did a child shunted to the margins end up revolutionizing his world? How did a merchant come to challenge the established order with a new vision of social justice? How did the pariah hounded out of Mecca turn exile into a new and victorious beginning? How did the outsider become the ultimate insider? Impeccably researched and thrillingly readable, Hazleton’s narrative creates vivid insight into a man navigating between idealism and pragmatism, faith and politics, nonviolence and violence, rejection and acclaim. The First Muslim illuminates not only an immensely significant figure but his lastingly relevant legacy. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Muhammad was a religious visionary and political leader. Raised in the harsh Arabian Peninsula and orphaned while still a child, this unlikely leader and military genius received a calling to transform his society from a collection of raiding tribes into one of the world's most progressive societies. His message of monotheism and righetousness motivated an entire people to abandon idolatry and spread the word of God to surrounding nations. Although he was a military genius, his greatest accomplishments came from the religion he preached: Islam, which called its adherents to lead a life of prayer, charity, and contemplation. The second largest religion in the world, both Islam's prophet and its values are today often misunderstood by adherents and outsiders alike. This concise, informative biography explores Muhammad's background and boyhood; as well as the culture and society in which he lived. A look at Muhammad as a family man, and how his personal life was a testament to his high regard for women.

This book considers the Arabic biographies of Prophet Muhammad, the earliest of which dates from two centuries after his life. These biographies, prized by Muslims, have been approached in the Western study of Islam from a range of positions. Some scholars reject them entirely, seeing in them products of the Muslim community’s idealisation of its history, while others accept them at face value, reasoning that, if not exact versions of events, the events could not have differed too much from their descriptions. The author revisits the debate and reconsiders several key incidents in the life of the Prophet. By compiling an extensive corpus of materials and comparing them closely, this book analyses the transmission and the contents of the accounts. It shows that by understanding clearly the interaction in early Islam between written and oral modes of transmission, and by the judicious sieving of the accounts, as well as the lines of transmission, we can sometimes reach back to that generation of Muslims who though not themselves witness to the events were younger contemporaries of those who were. Establishing a solid basis for the informed study of Muhammad’s biography and adding to the ongoing debate, this book will appeal to scholars of early Islam, history and theology.

Ausgezeichnet mit dem World Fantasy Award als »Bester Roman des Jahres«. Alif, ein junger Hacker in einem arabischen Emirat, sieht es als seine Berufung an, seinen Klienten Anonymität und Schutz vor staatlicher Überwachung zu bieten, ganz gleich ob es sich dabei um Dissidenten oder Islamisten handelt. Doch als er selbst ins Fadenkreuz der Regierung gerät und sein Rechner gehackt wird, muss Alif sein bisheriges Leben hinter sich lassen und untertauchen. Dass ihm zudem ein uraltes Buch mit dem Titel »Tausendundein Tag« in die Hände gespielt wird, verkompliziert die Sache enorm. Denn sein Inhalt enthüllt die reale Existenz der Dschinn und scheint obendrein der Schlüssel zu einer neuen Informationstechnologie zu sein ... »Alif der Unsichtbare« widersetzt sich allen Genrekategorien: Dieser wundervolle Debütroman ist gleichermaßen Fantasy-Roman und dystopischer Techno-Thriller. Vor dem Hintergrund einer nicht näher bestimmten arabischen Großstadt erzählt er, was geschieht, wenn der Schleier zwischen sichtbarer und unsichtbarer Welt durchlässig wird.
