Muhammad was born in Saudi Arabia in the seventh century and had revelations from the One God, Allah. People realised he was a prophet and started to follow his teaching and became Muslims. Muhammad's teaching continues to have a lasting influence on the World today. This book tells you all about Muhammad, who he was and what he did, and explains his teaching. It examines the sacred book of Islam the Qur'an, and it explores the major sacred places and festivals associated with Muhammad. This differentiated (simplified) text edition of GREAT RELIGIOUS LEADERS: MUHAMMAD AND ISLAM considers how the life and teaching of Muhammad affect people today, thus making it a great introduction to this important world religion.
