The Hidden Life of The Prophet Muhammad


It is very rare to find a book in the academic circles and public libraries that speaks about Muhammad of history. Most of the books today tell you about Muhammad of faith, the founder of Islam. In this book I am presenting Muhammad of history- his life, wars, and teachings. My accounts are based on the "Mothers of the Islamic Books,"[1] the writings of the Egyptian Muslim liberal thinker, Sayyid Mahmoud Al-Qimni, and the views of some modern Muslim and non-Muslim writers. What is written in the "Mothers of the Islamic Books" is called "Al-Maskoot Anho" which means information that people- Muslims and non-Muslims - are not supposed to hear and know. Very few ''ulama "or Muslim Scholars" of al-Azhar al-Sharif University read these accounts and hardly speak about them even to one another. However, modern Egyptian Muslim writers such as Sayyid Mahmoud al-Qimni, Faraj Foda, and Nasr Hamid Abu Zayd endangered their lives by breaking the seals of these books and revealing to the public information about Muhammad that they have never heard before. For this reason Faraj Foda was shot dead in front of his office in Cairo, Nasr Hamid Abu Zayd fled out of Egypt to escape the death penalty, and Sayyid Mahmoud al-Qimni was forced to recant all his writings. Unfortunately before the outside world would get chance to read their works, these writers were silenced through murder, terrorization, and death-threat, and their writings are banned in the Muslim world. Besides that none of their books have been translated into English or any other western languages. In this book I am presenting the reader with the most important contributions of Dr. Sayyid Mahmoud al-Qimni. Accordingly, although many books arewritten about the life and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, however, this book is unique because it reveals things you have never heard before and you are not likely to get them in any other biographies of Muhammad. No matter what religious background you come from,
