Muhammad: Prophet and Statesman (Galaxy Book) (Paperback)
Don't let the age of this book deter you! This historical classic details the extraordinary life of the Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam.

The book also serves as an excellent introduction to Islam.
A short account of the life and achievements of one of the great figures of history, this volume also serves as an excellent introduction to one of the world's major religions.
