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.

What the critics say

“[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)

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.

Disaster for your ears

I’m sorry but it was so difficult to keep listening and concentrate on the story. I just returned the book because I was not able to listen.

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.
