Muhammad

Muhammad Prophet of Islam BURGE, Stephen

Who is a prophet and what is prophecy in Islam? In the Abrahamic religions, prophets serve as intermediaries between the human and divine worlds. For Muslims, the Prophet Muhammad (570-632 CE) represents the culmination of the monotheistic prophets, including Abraham, Moses and Jesus. But what was Muhammad's message and is it still relevant today? This book takes a fresh approach to the study of Muhammad by examining his importance to Muslims in the wider context of prophecy. Stephen Burge outlines the expectations and conventions of prophecy and prophethood in Islam, comparing this to Judaism and Christianity. Chapters asses how Muhammad is portrayed in Muslim literature and what his place is within the devotional life of the Muslim community. In doing so, the book offers a more intimate portrait of Islam and a deeper understanding of the meaning of Muhammad for Muslims around the world. Written by an Anglican priest who is a specialist in Islamic Studies, Muhammad: Prophet of Islam is an accessible guide for all those wanting to learn about the legacy of Muhammad and what prophecy means in Islam today.
