MOHAMMED AND THE UNBELIEVERS is based upon the life of Mohammed. The definitive official life of Mohammed is written by Ibn Ishaq is called the Sira. Mohammed's life is one of the great stories in history. He went from being a poor orphan to the first ruler of all of Arabia and died without a single enemy left alive. The Sira is not just a biography, but it is a sacred text about the ideal man who is the pattern for all humanity and all times. Until now the only way to read the Sira was to read through a 800 page book of fine print that is filled with Arabic names and terms. Only imams and scholars read it. The Sira is so important that there could not be any Islam without it. Mohammed is the sacred pattern of all Muslims, and the only place his life is recorded is in the Sira and the Traditions. Over 75% of the Sira is about politics and jihad. Mohammed preached the religion of Islam for 13 years and only had 150 followers. When he turned to politics and war, he became a total success. Indeed, politics is the real power of Islam. Political Islam is the concern for all non-Muslims, not the religion. MOHAMMED AND THE UNBELIEVERS is not about Islam, it is Islam. Although it written in simple English, every paragraph is referenced to the source text. It is both easy to read and authoritative. If you want to understand the greatest political force in the 21st century read MOHAMMED AND THE UNBELIEVERS.
