Although ostensibly a novel, Chopra bookends his story about the Muslim prophet with an author’s note and an afterword, offering the reader a history lesson while reflecting on the current relationship between Islam and the rest of the world. From his father Abdullah, his wet nurse the Bedouin Halimah, daughter Zaynab and several other colourful individuals like the prostitute Jasmine. If you are looking for an introduction to the life of Muhammad and the basic teachings of Islam, this is the book.
Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet by Deepak Chopra
Hardcoverpages. Each chapter is the memory of someone who had close contact to the man–a wife or daughter or friend, even his lifelong enemy. Chopra’s stilted writing style made several of his non-historical novels less than enjoyable to me in the past.
Americans were protesting the building of an Islamic Centre in New York several blocks away from ground zero as it rekindled memories of the horrific attacks in Muhammad was a mean dude, and Allah is a mean god. It touched the Prophet’s life from the “surface”. The second third was also interesting, with Muhammad being exposed to the intrigues of his time and eventually seeing the angel of prophecy.
This being said, this book lacks historical accuracy. One of them, Ali, the first convert, says, deeak me tell you how the Prophet opened the door of my soul, so that he may open yours.
A must read for any one who has questions on Islam and their Prophet. Well written as usual from Chopra, gave me a lot of new information choprra the origin and fundamentals of Islam, ltiko well as always reminded me of the nature of human beings. Using multiple first-person narrators–slaves profetaa merchants, hermits, and scribes–he portrays life including its brutality on the streets of Mecca.
Why is it neccesary for God to have his message spread everywhere? I learned a great deal about Muhammad’s life and the rise of Islam. I do believe that his writings was biased.
Despite the fact, it was still a great read. This is a fiction book that revolves around a well-known historical character. Maybe this is how he writes!
Mahoma: Una Historia del Ultimo Profeta (Spanish, Paperback)
Another unexpected delight was the wealth of Arabic sayings that were both pithy and poetic: And Mahomx, I swear by the afterglow of sunset, And by the night and all it enshrouds. May 07, Dina Salaymeh rated it it was amazing. It was well written, and despite the few little profega here and there, it stayed fairly faithful to the facts we know about the life of our Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Muhammad’s wife, Khadijah, laments there have been no warnings that this tumultuous, life-changing event is about to occur; Ali, the first convert, explains how the Prophet approached him.

My secret is that God is not someone you can seek. I gave this book one star not because the way it was written but about the content. Although much blood was spilled in the evolution of Islam, violence pdofeta integral to Arabic life at that time. This book did the trick for me on the life of Muhammad.
Still so much hostility and affinity for intrigue and strife. This is a great book to read for people that are merely curious and don’t want an overload of information. I appreciated the author’s writing style as lti,o seemed respectful of Islam, though there could have been more of a distinction between how Islam should be practiced and how it it is perceived.
I don’t think I would have ever read it on my own, but I’m glad that I did. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Mar 16, Linda rated it really liked it.
I read Chopra’s novel on Jesus and plan on reading the one on Buddha. I liked the format of the book – the way the story was narrated through the eyes of the different people in Mohammad’s life – his wetnurse, hs wife, his daughter, a beggar, a cousin and so on. The feelings of the individuals that were portrayed aren’t accurate because it is fictionalized as the author mentions in the introduction.
A Story of Revelation” after the Enlightenment series. I remain perplexed by the images of such a gentle yet violent prophet; so unlike images we have hishoria Jesus or Buddha.
