Publisher's Summary

Born into the factious world of war-torn Arabia, Muhammad's life is a gripping and inspiring story of one man's tireless fight for unity and peace. In a world where greed and injustice ruled, Muhammad created change by affecting hearts and minds. Just as the story of Jesus embodies the message of Christianity, Muhammad's life reveals the core of Islam. Deepak Chopra shares the life of Muhammad as never before, putting his teachings in a new light.

An accompanying PDF file chronicles Muhammad's life and genealogy.

Critic Reviews

“[O]ne of the most imaginative and touching biographies of Muhammad….Chopra’s grasp of Muhammad’s life and mission extends his range in a surprising direction; his popularization is welcome.” ( Publishers Weekly)
“Compellingly told, this is not only good storytelling, it also helps readers, especially non-Muslims, better understand the complexities and contradictions surrounding Islam.” ( Booklist)

Messenger of Allah: a Living Prophet

After listening, Prophet Muhammad became alive for me. I liked hearing his story told by an Indian and knew his respect to be genuine. the story was gripping and I realised that being a novel, the author's creativity was a driving force for the breathtaking quality which emerges. I highly recommend listening to this awesome recitation!

A side view to Prophet's life worth a read/listen

Deepak Chopra, has articulated extremely well in easy words the connection between the Christianity, The Judaism and the contemporary need as well as formation of Islam. A side view of the Prophet's life from His contemporaries and associates as well as geo-politics of the time are finely interwoven. Author has lucidly articulated, without hurting the sentiments of the followers, the human side through His faults, weaknesses and certain decisions that sound unjustified today. the book appropriately puts him as the man among men. Deepak's baritone voice adds to the charm of the story. a book worth reading/listening any time.

Sincere Effort with a different perspective...

Being a Muslim, I did have my apprehensions...but to my surprise the author has used a lot of sources from Muslim seerah authors instead of just orientalists...we may not agree with it entirely but amongst thousands of biographies on the Prophet (peace be upon him) available...this brings in a different perspective....

The sequence of book is somewhat not properly arranged. Summary is good.Lesley Hazelton book on Muhammad is more interesting.

A Nice Perspective

I was interested in this book because Audibles selection on Islam is super limited and mostly anti-islamic material. The novel jumps around a lot so you need to have some idea of the history of Islam to follow it. Also the production value is low and although I love when readers narrate, I felt it didnt fit this book and it was somewhat different to hear clearly.

Great Exercise for Story from Different Take

Listening to a novel taking on origin of Islam is interesting to say least. The imagination of the writer is appreciated. However, many of chronology of events & facts as were transmitted through Muslim scholars are not as accurate which was mentioned by writer in his introduction. It is still a novel that tales an interesting story to those who are interested to be introduced to Mohamed the Prophet. There are plethora of scholarly work that can be looked at for those who are interested. I would recommend the following as an example only; Sahih Bukhari, Sealed Nectar (Al Raheeq Al Makhtom ), & fikh Al Syrah by Imam Ghazali. Thanks for good work.

Poorly written and poorly narrated

I was a bit surprised about how poorly written and narrated this book was. Dr. Chopra is capable of much better writing. He certainly should have let a professional narrator do the reading.

Bazinga

I'm spending some time in Saudi Arabi and wanted to learn about the customs, courtesies, and history. Jeddah is a beautiful city and I look forward to learning more about the country.

This was my third book on Muhammad in as many months. It was available via the Audible Plus catalog. It was not very informative or interesting. The narration by the author was fine.

If you have recommendations please comment below with title and author and I will look into them. Thank you in advance.

Disclaimer: My enjoyment of the narrator is based on my listening speed. I only leave 5 stars for books I've listened to or will listen to multiple times. I'll update my review if I listen again.

Monotonous and boring

So hard to listen to. Confusing, scattered, and choppy. Stories have no references and not clear how someone illiterate can speak so eloquently and record their diaries (not Muhammad but others too). Didn’t enjoy at all despite being familiar with most of the characters and stories from other sources as I was growing up.. sorry. Expected much more.

Great story but not factual

This is a story book.
A lot of half truths and it’s just not correct.

I get what he was going for but could’ve chosen nearly anyone in history.

Such a shame as I had such high hopes for this.

If you want to know the real story (which is very fascinating on its own) look up a good book about Muhammad (PBUH) written with the original accounts.

Excellent story for Muslims and non Muslims

Well done in delivering an excellent audio book, which is a beneficial read for non Muslims and Muslims.

A great interfaith book.

Thanks

Good start but inaccurate

I enjoyed the beginning but then he started saying incorrect things so I stopped
it is important to learn about the life of such a great man from the correct sources which would be the traditional scholars of Islam as their tradition is passed on generation by generation till it reaches the Prophet
I think the sealed nectar would be a better listen and more accurate
