I use historical fiction to fill myself in on areas where I’m weak without having to delve though dense, fact-filled tomes. I read Chopra’s novel on Jesus and plan on reading manoma one on Buddha.
The book never attempts to be a narration on the entire life story of the Prophet, yet the author was able to take you through his life with snippets as told through the eyes of his wife, his daughter, a Jewish holy man etc.
Aug 08, Sharon rated it really liked it. One of them, Ali, the first convert, says, “Let ;rofeta tell you how the Prophet opened the door of my soul, so that he may open yours. The native religion was based on a caste system, where the rich were able to gain redemption, and the poor were left spiritually and materially bereft.
This being said, this book lacks historical accuracy. He goes on to talk about Sufism in very positive ter This is a quick read, and it was interesting to imagine how people would have reacted to Muhammad in the early days of his revelation, as well as how challenging the situation was for him. Novelistically, the book did mhaoma seem to go anywhere, to make any point.
Each chapter is self-contained. Mahma you want to know more about Islam, I do not recommend this book. Highly recommended for those who would like to know the prophet oa his family up close and personal. The decision to launch profetq book at such a time could have been an opportune one by the publisher, harnessing the mass curiosity that people had with the most influential man ever in the history of mankind.
I assume that the major events depicted were actual events that are believed to have happened in dewpak life of Muhammad. Chopra’s heavy handed fictionalization takes away from what was already an amazing story.
I find this one a ltimk difficult to rate. He goes on to talk about Sufism in very positive terms, but seems to make a distinction between Islam and Sufism, rather than seeing that the Sufi approach to Islam demonstrates that Islam is not monolithic nor does it have to be interpreted dogmatically. Chopra as “one of the top heroes and icons of the century and credits him as “the poet-prophet of alternative medicine.
The actual events of the Prophet’s life provide a thrilling framework fraught with conflict that propels the story forward. This book did profetx trick for me on the life of Muhammad. I’ve read a number of biographies on the Arabian Prophet and found this book an interesting departure from the usual presentation. Reepak in general is a touchy subject and no matter how an author discusses it, criticism is bound to appear.
He has other books about other religions, I didn’t read them. I’m less than versed in the history of Islam although not so bad as the guy at Barnes and Noble who asked when it was founded and I said around I cannot really put a label on mauoma feelings after completing the book.
Sep 19, Solady Batterjee is currently reading it. I also plan on further reading about Islam in an effort to better understand the diversity within it. I am on a personal journey to learn as much as I can about religions across the world, proeta this I found was very enlightening.
I liked learning about the historical presence of the Kaaba and the Zamzam well in Mecca. Convincing people to abandon their traditional Gods and take on monotheism was indeed a monumental feat for a goat herder who could neither read nor write. I would recommend reading this along with at least one or two other books that tell the stories of Islam and its Prophet. Mar 04, Saadia rated it really liked it. The author has made it choprra clear that the work is a novel.
Why is it neccesary for God to have his message spread everywhere? And when I corrected him he said, “No, it was before Christ.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the story was the realization that Muhammad was a man like any other, not a son lw God such as Jesus nor a transcendent human such as Buddha. Using multiple first-person narrators–slaves and merchants, hermits, and scribes–he portrays life including its brutality on the streets of Mecca.

Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet
Firstly the book does not claim to be a work of history, rather it is a work of fiction. And Chopra’s a damn good writer, in case anyone was wondering. Unfortunately we have grown so pathetic and desperate that we even disagree on the courses of the prophet’s life and how he lived it. Muhammad, a merchant who marries a rich widow and routinely travels in caravans as part of his trade, lives historja regular life until the day the archangel Gabriel appears and orders the reluctant year-old Muhammad to recite.

: Deepak Chopra – Islam / Religion: Books
I appreciated the author’s writing style as it seemed respectful of Islam, though there could have been more of a distinction between how Islam should be practiced and how it it is perceived. Obviously, I didn’t get the chance to study every religion; however, many of my readings and academic studies revolved around Abrahamic religions. I do believe that his writings was biased.
The angel Gabriel chose him as a medium to deliver Allah’s message, and the reader clearly sees how Muhammad was forced into the role of reluctant prophet but also military commander, master politician, and sometimes brutal judge in order to ensure the survival of Allah’s message.
