A revised edition of the internationally acclaimed biography of the prophet

• Includes important additions about the prophet’s spread of Islam into Syria and its neighboring states

• Contains original English translations from 8th and 9th century biographies, presented in authoritative language

• Represents the final updates made on the text before the author’s death in 2005

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.

“This work is widely recognized as the most readable account of the life of the Prophet to date.” (Times of London)

"Lings provides a wealth of detail on the life of Muhammad, the time and place of many Koranic revelations, and the foundation of Islam, all based exclusively on 8th- and 9th-century Arabic biographical sources and collections of the sayings attributed to Muhammad. General readers will find a well-written, straightforward chronological narrative; Muslim readers will appreciate the favorable treatment of Muhammad; while specialists will find a faithful and convenient rendering of source material." (Joseph Gardner, California State Univ. Lib., Northridge Library Journal)

“For those interested in Islam . . . it is mesmerizing.” (Parabola)


Martin Lings life of Muhammed is based on Arabic sources of the eight and ninth centuries, of which some passages are translated here for the first time. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, with a few shortcomings 3. Juni 2000
This biography is very well written. I agree with most of the other reviewers when they alluded to the fact that it brings the Prophet's times to life. When reading it you feel like you were there. I am, no doubt, alone when I say that there were times when I was brought to tears. My favorite situation is the speech that the Prophet gives to the Medinese when the question why he didn't allot them any spoils of war after the battle after the conquest of Makkah! It presents an awesome dynamic between a Prophet of God and his followers.
I do however have some problems with the book. The methodology of the author is to present the life of the Prophet as portrayed by the earliest sources without taking into account whether or not the earliest sources could have included in their texts traditions with suspect authenticity. Hence, Lings, uncritically chooses to include the incident in which the Prophet is said to have (basically) asked his step-son to divorce his wife, because the Prophet was in love with her and wanted to marry her. This incident is not accepted by all scholars to be authentic. In fact, there are many that would argue that it was completely fabricated. Another example of this is when Lings writes or alludes that the Prophet had a concubine. Again, because of Lings methodology of merely conveying what is latent in the earliest sources, one can leave the book with the impression that everything that was described therin is completely authentic and undisputed. This, ofcourse, is not the case at all. For centuries scholars have disputed and doubted the authenticity of many traditions, through which the Prophet's life may be constructed. I would tell would-be readers to just be aware of this fact before undertaking their journey into the Prophet's life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Book 1. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I was surprised at the objectivity of the biography. Lings related what happened according to hadiths and historical references written by arab historians in the centuries following Muhammad's death. He draws no conclusions, leaving that to the reader. I especially liked the chapters concerning arabia preceding Muhammad; they were fascinating and provided an excellent background to the situation of Arab society before his birth. Through the whole book I only noticed one anecdote derived from a questionable hadith. Suffice it to say, Martin Lings has written an impressive and thorough book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen an excellent study of early islam 8. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
while teaching english in casablanca, morocco, i read several books and spoke with many muslims about islam. the most lucid, unbiased presentation of the life of muhammad that i came across is lings's. muslims that i've met since then are generally pleasantly surprised at my knowledge of early islam -- practically all of which comes from this book. i avidly recommend this book to anybody who wants to know how islam was founded, knowledge of which is key to understanding much of what is happening in the islamic world today.

5.0 von 5 Sternen simple, succinct, touching 16. Dezember 1999
Ling's narrative is exquisite. His provides a vivid description of the society in which the Prophet (pbuh) lived, which makes it easier for us to appreciate and understand the trials and tribulations that Muhammad (pbuh) had to endure to perform his task. Ling's factual manner of presentation guides us to knowing and loving Muhammad (pbuh), as the man and the prophet. Thank you, Lings, for with this book, I am able to get to know Muhammad (pbuh) better, and to appreciate and love him more.
Highly recommended to all readers.
