About this book
Presented here are over two hundred accounts of the sayings and deeds of Muhammad (570-632 CE). They portray the Prophet as a pragmatic man, down-to-earth yet brilliantly spiritual, stern in matters of justice yet compassionate, rich in dignity yet extremely modest, a poignant storyteller gifted with a keen sense of humor, a valorous warrior, a diligent worker, a conscientious family man, a good neighbor, and a just ruler. These translations from the "Sayings of the Prophet" (or Hadith) reveal the humanistic face of Islam, highlighting the value of these teachings for all people of religious traditions.
