Overview

The book uncovers the truth about Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) and explains the reasons for misunderstanding between Islam and the West. It also highlights the prophet's characteristics and teachings. Every individual belongs to one class which is 'humankind' a policy which the Muslims should uphold.


Based on the perceptions of non-Muslims, the book uncovers the truth about the Prophet Muhammad (SAW), clarifies the reasons for misunderstanding between Islam and the West and highlights the prophetic teachings which help to build unity and peace amongst interfaith communities. Data was collected by reviewing appreciations of Muhammad (SAW) made by non-Muslims across the history and also conducting semi-structured interviews involving contemporary non-Muslim prominent personalities including MPs, Lords, and priests from interfaith communities and chaplaincies of some leading universities. The combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches has contributed in revealing the reality and establishing interfaith understanding.

Given the general lack of knowledge about and misrepresentation of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) over centuries, it has contributed to building a wrong paradigm in the approach to his life, character and teachings and has resultant with misunderstanding between the Islamic world and the West. This mispresentation owes a lot to Orientalists including Venerable Bede, John of Damascus, William Dunbar, Mandeville, Dante and Muir who have accused Muhammad (SAW) of being an impostor, fake prophet, womaniser, bloodthirsty tyrant etc. These distortions have persisted for many generations and have been adopted by large sections of the western world. As a result the perceptions of Muslims have been skewed and stereotypes of their religion abound. This has led to the stigmatisation of Muslim communities and the Islamic faith worldwide. Muslims are being generally treated with hostility, resentment and bias. Often they are left feeling marginalised from the host society which creates huge distrust between interfaith communities and contributes to the view that Muslims are an obstacle towards social harmony.

Meet the Author

About Dr. Lais - Having developed a career as a Career Adviser providing advice and guidance to students in education, and also achieved a PhD degree which brought me a' National Research Award', I have got a keen interest in research as well. I have been involved in many studies conducted by universities including Imperial College, University College London and Oxford University. Noticing a literature gap of this topic, I became motivated in conducting a self-funded research and this book is its outcome.

I am also working on my next book: 100 Most Influential Muslim Women in the History. Sometimes I write articles in community newspapers.
