I was recently reading the much celebrated book, ‘Muhammad, A biography of the Prophet’, by Karen Armstrong. This is one of the books about Rasoolullah which, in today’s world culture of increased hostility against Islam and Muslims, is a real breath of fresh air. It is a portrayal of the life of Rasoolullah which is fair and markedly free from the cynical misrepresentation of many Western writers. Another book I read, which was also very complimentary about Muhammad, is the book by John Adair, called ‘The Leadership of Muhammad’. However, what struck me was the tone of writing which reflects the fact that Karen Armstrong and John Adair are not Muslim.
