Relying solely on Muslim sources for the history of Muhammad, Robert Spencer unfolds a biography of Islam's originator. Since the original sources are difficult to verify, and sometimes contradictory, Spencer sifts through the Qur'an (Islam's scriptures), the tafsir (commentary on the Qur'an), hadith (traditions of Muhammad), and the sira (Muhammad's biography, written over a century after Muhammad died, preserved in partial form by an even later writer), along with other relevant material. He uncovers a view of Muhammad that few have heard about. Spencer has written at length on Islam, Muhammad, and issues concerning Islamic topics and now brings all that material to bear in this deep and insightful revelation of the world's fastest-growing religion and enemy of Christianity, America and Western civilization.
