Coffee with the Prophet is the first fiction release from Dr. Mark A. Gabriel, former lecturer in Islamic history and culture at Al-Azhar University. Dr. Gabriel's previous books, including Islam and Terrorism, have been best-sellers in the Islam category since 2002 when his first book was released.
Coffee with the Prophet tells the fictional story of Mustafa, a good Egyptian Muslim who memorized the Quran by age 12. Mustafa was a rising star in Islamic scholarship, earning a position as one of the youngest lecturers in Al-Azhar history.
But in reality Mustafa's faith in Islam was being destroyed by his studies. The more he learned, the more disappointed he felt. On the edge of abandoning his faith, Mustafa prayed for Allah to show him the truth.
Little did he know that he would find his answer in a coffee shop in Mecca. There he met a charismatic tribesman with a taste for iced lattes and the knowledge of an Islamic scholar. He was the mentor Mustafa sought, but soon Mustafa realized that this stranger was surrounded in mystery. Who did he talk with late at night? What did he carry in his rough brown bag? And how did he know so much about Mustafa?
Coffee with the Prophet delivers mystery, humor, and a fascinating expose of the life and personality of the founder of Islam.
