PRODUCT INFORMATION

The important role of Prophet Muhammad in the everyday lives of Muslims is usually overlooked by Western scholars and has consequently never been understood by the Western world. Using original sources in the various Islamic languages, Annemarie Schimmel explains the central place of Muhammad in Muslim life, mystical thought, and poetry. She sees the veneration of Muhammad as having many parallels in other major religions.

In order to understand Muslim piety, it is necessary to take into account the long history of the veneration of Muhammad. Schimmel discusses aspects of his life, birth, marriage, miracles, and heavenly journey, all of which became subjects for religious devotions. By using poetic texts and artistic expressions and by examining daily Muslim religious practices, Schimmel shows us the gentler side of Islamic religious culture, providing a much-needed understanding of religion as it is experienced and practised in the Islamic world.

This is the first book in English to deal with all aspects of the veneration of Prophet Muhammad. It is an expanded version of Schimmel’s Und Muhammad Ist Sein Prophet, originally published in German in 1981.

Annemarie Schimmel (1922-2003) was a renowned German scholar of Islam and author of eighty books, including Mystical Dimensions of Islam and A Two-Colored Brocade: The Imagery of Persian Poetry.
