Martin Lings’ biography of Muhammad is an internationally acclaimed, comprehensive, and authoritative account of the
life of the prophet. Based on the sira, the eighth- and ninth-century Arabic biographies that recount numerous events in
the prophet’s life, it contains original English translations of many important passages that reveal the words of men
and women who heard Muhammad speak and witnessed the events of his life.
Scrupulous and exhaustive in its fidelity to its sources, Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources is presented
in a narrative style that is easily comprehensible, yet authentic and inspiring in its use of language, reflecting both
the simplicity and grandeur of the story it tells. This revised edition includes new sections detailing the prophet’s
expanding influence and his spreading of the message of Islam into Syria and its neighboring states. It represents the
final updates made to the text before the author’s death in 2005. The book has been published in 12 languages and has
received numerous awards, including acknowledgment as best biography of the prophet in English at the National Seerate
Conference in Islamabad.
