Description

Revelation: the Story of Muhammad (pbuh) could well be the most significant work on seerah to be released over the past two decades, perhaps since the original printing of ar-Raheeq al-Makhtoum in 1996. And with it's eye-watering price, it would certainly qualify as the "Mercedes Benz" of seerah books.

One would have to actually read the book to see if there is anything new here that is not covered by established seerah works like ar-Raheeq or Martin Lings or Adil Salahi for instance. However, what a pre-cursory glance inside does show is that the author has converted the entire Seerah into a business presentation / college textbook like "informational format". With graphs and points and executive summaries and cross references and diagrams replacing the traditional style of long paragraphs of endless written word. 

From the Publisher's Web-site:

The Story of Muhammad is a uniquely modern presentation of the life of the prophet Muhammad. Born out of a need for a fresh approach to classical texts, this book offers an intelligent presentation of a wide variety of scholarly viewpoints on the story of Muhammad and Qur’anic revelation. It also seeks to address a number of controversial topics that have been overlooked or dismissed in other works.

Never before seen in the English language, this biographical textbook weaves over 400 verses from the Qur’an into an authentic narrative of Muhammad’s life that includes 340 unique commentary points, 90 maps, family trees, and diagrams, over 250 helpful elaborations, and an interactive glossary of over 400 names. Additionally, the book is structured around a unique timeline that helps readers navigate the life of Muhammad.

Commentators in the book include Safi-ur-Rahman Al-Mubarakpuri, Karen Armstrong, Reza Aslan, Martin Lings, Tariq Ramadan, Adil Salahi, W. Montgomery Watt, and Hamza Yusuf. A modern, easy-to-understand translation of Qur’anic verses has been provided by Yahiya Emerick.

Revelation is designed for readers who are interested in understanding the historical and scriptural context of the Qur’an and how it was revealed. It is written in a welcoming style and is a valuable resource for Muslims, non-Muslims, students, teachers, and busy professionals.
