"Every Prophet is a reformer but not every reformer is a Prophet, however extensive the reforms he achieves, because neither reformation nor social reconstruction is the essence of Prophethood. The essence of Prophethood is a mysterious connection between the Prophet and Allah and His Unseen. It constitutes a bridge between the natural and supernatural worlds. This is the state which makes the Prophet a unique receptacle, a listener who receives inspiration from sublime realms beyond the reach of anyone other than another Prophet." Today even many non-Muslims acknowledge the greateness of Muhammad - peace and blessings be upon him - as a worldly figure. Recognising his spiritual pre-eminence, however, is another matter, In this book, the Egyptian scholar Dr. Mustafa Mahmoud explains what is most extraordinary about the character of the Blessed Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. The author recounts and comments on various episodes of the life of the Blessed Prophet, demonstrating the unique character of the man and the divine inspiration that guided him in every aspect and every moment of his mission.
