Overview

In this thoughtful study, noted Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan explores the life of the Prophet Muhammad through the distinct but interrelated lenses of his fundamental humanity and his relevance to the modern day. Basing his work on the most reliable sources, Ramadan draws an intimate portrait and chronicles the life of the man who founded a great religion and inspired a vast empire. Beyond mere historical facts, it focuses on the consequences of the Prophet's actions on some of today's most controversial topics: the role of women, racism, war, poverty, and relations with other religions. This is a profound and readable biography that offers Muslims a new interpretation of Muhammad's life, and introduces non-Muslims to the history and spiritual and ethical richness of Islam.

En este estudio considerado, el respetado erudito del islam Tariq Ramadan explora la vida del profeta Mahoma a través de los lentes distintos pero interrelacionados de su humanidad fundamental y su relevancia en el mundo actual. Basándose en las fuentes más fiables, Ramadan delinea un retrato íntimo y una crónica de la vida de quien lanzó una gran religión e inspiró a un vasto imperio. Más allá del relato de hechos históricos, se centra en el efecto que las acciones del Profeta han tenido en algunos de los temas más polémicos de la actualidad: el rol de las mujeres, el racismo, la guerra, la pobreza y las relaciones con otras religiones. Ésta es una profunda y amena biografía que les ofrece a los musulmanes una nueva interpretación de la vida de Mahoma y les presenta a los no musulmanes la historia y riqueza espiritual y ética del Islam.
