An Inspired Life informs and inspires with its insights into the birth of the Islamic Faith and the tribulations encountered by its Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him) and his steadfast followers prior to the acceptance and establishment of the religion. The author has provided a fascinating glimpse into the life the Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him), which clarifies his role of Messenger and extols his attributes and personal qualities as a model Muslim. The work is very relevant today, as in the current political and social climate the intended ethics of Islam have become blurred and somewhat distorted. Dr. Abbas Tawfiq has highlighted the essence of the faith through his focus on the behavior of its Prophet. This book is a must for anyone who is drawn to further their knowledge of Islam and will appeal to both Muslim and non-Muslim alike.
