by Martin Lings
Acclaimed worldwide as the definitive biography of the Prophet Muhammad SAW in the English language, Martin Lings' seerah of the beloved Prophet SAW is unlike any other. Based on Arabic sources of the eighth and ninth centuries, of which some important passages are translated here for the first time, it owes the freshness and directness of its approach to the words of men and women who heard Muhammad SAW speak and witnessed the events of his life.
Martin Lings has an unusual gift for narrative. He has adopted a style which is at once extremely readable and reflects both the simplicity and magnificence of the story. The result is a book which will be read with equal enjoyment by those already familiar with Muhammad SAW's life and those coming to it for the first time.
