I liked the book upto the point when God reveals himself to Mohammad. The only reason I’m giving this book 1 star is because of it historical inaccuracy. It gave the reader insight into Muhammad’s life pprofeta the eyes of family, traitors, enemy, trades people, slaves Lists with This Book.

Maybe this is how he writes! I believe that you cannot judge past events and generations on today’s standards. The last story about putting drl group of Jews to death and reducing the families to slavery just turned my stomach. It touched the Prophet’s life from the “surface”. In short, the novel itself is worth reading, but the afterword only feeds into existing prejudices and stereotypes about Islam. Jan 17, Ridzwan rated ltim really liked it.

I also plan on fu This is my second novel on Muhammad and I frankly find his story fascinating.

Muhammad, a merchant who marries a rich widow and routinely travels in caravans as part of his trade, lives a regular life until the day the archangel Gabriel appears and orders the reluctant year-old Muhammad to recite. Each chapter is self-contained. I expected to learn much about Islam, but what I didn’t expect was the love of poetry that suffused Arab hearts and the attendant lyricism of Muhammad’s suras.

The first third was interesting, about Muhammad growing up an orphan and snippets of his life and personality viewed through third parties. A Story of Enlightenment ” which is book two in Deepak’s Enlightenment series. And Lo, I swear by the afterglow of sunset, And by the night and all it enshrouds.

I read Chopra’s novel on Jesus and plan on reading prrofeta one on Buddha. Muslims, listen to me, it’s about time we don’t take our Islam for granted, it’s time to think more deeply about it and sense it’s power and bueaty in our life. The actual events of the Prophet’s profetaa provide a thrilling framework lx with conflict that propels the story forward. However, other aspects of the work delighted me. Muhammad struggled to project his message of peace, acceptance, and submission above the sometimes horrific reality of Arabic life in the 7th century.


Not because they didn’t agree with the message, but because they stood to lose tons of revenue from the visitors to Mecca who trekked to the holy city to visit the sacred house built by Prophet Abraham and his son. To write a story on the life choopra a man who brought a faith followed by almost 2 billion people is enough to send any writer for cover, but Chopra handles the subject matter with tact and diplomacy without pulling any punches where he felt he pdofeta to.

This book did the trick for me on the life of Muhammad. I would recommend reading this along with at least one or two other books that tell the stories of Islam and its Prophet.

But taken in its sum, these different vantage depicts very well the social, political and even economic climate in Mecca years ago when tribal loyalties rule, oppression against the weak were rampant and belief in the idols dictated every single aspect of life.

Chopra’s heavy handed fictionalization takes away from what was already an amazing story.

Muhammad: A Story of the Last Prophet by Deepak Chopra

It either deserved five or one. 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. Chopra does an amazing job of weaving a tale of the up and downs of the life of Muhammad, and expressing the positives and negatives of this influential historical character.

For a human to receive the responsibility of spreading a new religion!! Well written as usual from Chopra, gave me a lot of new information about the origin and fundamentals of Islam, as well as always reminded me of the nature of human beings.

: Deepak Chopra – Islam / Religion: Books

My secret is that God is not someone you can seek. That way the picture you’ll get will be more complete. It was kind of like This is one of those books that jumped off the library shelf, right into my path. I don’t know that it would be a worthy introduction to the religion of Islam, of course, but as far as giving some insight into the life of a highly controversial character, it’s pretty effective.


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 The second third was also interesting, with Muhammad being exposed to the intrigues of his time and eventually seeing the angel of prophecy.

Oct 21, Akram Jamal-AlLail rated it it was amazing. Chopra’s stilted writing style made several of his non-historical novels less than enjoyable to me in the past.

W I’ve read a number of biographies on the Arabian Prophet and found this book an interesting departure from the usual presentation. Sep 19, Solady Batterjee is currently reading it.

Jan 02, Alan Jacobs rated it liked it. I wonder were the sources he used to write his book! This is the best book about the prophet I have read so far because it is presented as a novel where the main characters come in one at a time and tell you the story from their perspective.

Mahoma: Una Historia del Ultimo Profeta

See all 3 questions about Muhammad…. This style brought an immediacy and vibrancy to the life of the Prophet, not to be found elsewhere. If you are interested in Muhammad and the growth of Islam, and don’t want the history books, I recommend this little book that sheds a different light on Muhammad.

The narrative is in the first person, with each of the characters telling their personal story. We see how the Prophet made enemies in his struggle to convince his community to worship one God as opposed to the hundreds of idols they followed. In fact, I would argue that you come away from it knowing less, not more, about Islam.

Mahoma: Una Historia del Ultimo Profeta (Spanish, Paperback)

OK as historical fiction, not so good as fiction. Oct 24, PJ Swanwick rated it really liked it Shelves: The author keeps profetaa language simple and easy to understand, and it is this style that contributes to bringing the life of seventh century Arabia alive on the pages. I wouldn’t recommend this book to those who want to learn about Prophet Muhammad Pbuh.
