The First Muslim

The First Muslim

Muhammad's life was of almost unparalleled historical importance; yet for all the iconic power of his name, the dramatic story of the prophet of Islam is not well known. Lesley Hazleton brings Muhammad vibrantly to life, drawing on early eyewitness sources and on history, politics, religion, and psychology, she renders him as a man in full, in all his complexity and vitality.
