Although these incidents never turned into the ‘horror journeys’ that were the speciality of Gellhorn, Rogerson’s lack of linguistic skills didn’t help. The author disguises his Islamic interpretation of the event as a historical fact.

He certainly seems sympathetic to the Prophet, but also tells details of which one can be critical. Vividly describing the sixth-century Arabia where Muhammad was born, Rogerson charts his early years among the flocks, the caravans and the markets of his native Mecca; the night he received his religious vision; the perilous years of reciting the revelations in Mecca; his escape to Yathrib Medina and his subsequent battles.


Entwined with Rogerson’s well-told yarn are insights into the origins of Muslim culture and practice The end result is a book that is not badnaby to offend anyone but does not do a very good job in really telling about who Muhammad was either.

Firstly it should be appreciated that this is a book about Muhammad being a biography and not about Islam, so do not expect to get any great insights into what Islam is about though you will get a much better understanding of its origins and original concepts or why the religion is at the centre of so much global rgerson in the 21st century, since the book effectively finishes with the death of this prophet in AD.
