The Life of Muhammad
by Muhammad Husayn Haykal
Publisher: Islamic Book Service 2005
Number of pages: 736
Haykal achieves two objectives admirably: first, a biography which reveals the career of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the full light of historic reality; second, bringing out the essence of Islam, as exemplified in the life of the greatest Muslim. It includes complete coverage of the Prophet's life, a detailed analysis of pre-Islamic Arabia, the situational context of revelation, and a comparative study of the basics of Islamic and Western civilizations.

We realize the importance of this book in dispelling the misconceptions of Islam, and in spreading a religion on Earth which can solve or allay the adversities which abound. Islam is for all of mankind and makes no preference to sex.
