Understanding Muhammad: A Psychobiography of All‚h's Prophet

Front Cover
Lulu Enterprises Incorporated, 2007 - 252 pages
This is not a biography, but a psychobiography. Psychobiography focuses on the "why" rather than the "what". It explains the motivations and impulses of the person it analyzes. Historians tell us Muhammad used to withdraw to a cave and spend days alone wrapped in his thoughts, where he heard voices and had ghostly visions. He thought he had become demon-possessed, but his wife reassured him he was chosen as a prophet. Convinced of his own status, he was intolerant of those who rejected him, assassinated those who criticized him, raided and looted those who did not believe in him, and massacred entire populations. He reduced thousands into slavery, raped and allowed his men to rape female captives. He was generous to those who accepted him, but vengeful towards those who didn't. Muhammad was no ordinary man. This book goes beyond the stories and explores the motives. It explains what made Muhammad tick and where he drew his strength, and conviction.

Excellent book. A great work. Everyone should read it. It should have been translated to other languages especially Persian. Thanks to Dr. Sina who took a life risk and wrote it. More people should be as brave as he was to show the exact feature of Islam and Muhammad. Well done!

Excellent work. Every body should know the truth who is following islam, who was their mohhamad. This scientific research of history should be read by every muslim following islam, keeping all the doses away from mind which have been taught to them from quoran or by any other means. The day will come when there willbe no islam anymore. Those are intellectuals will automaticaly unfollow islam and those are not they will RIP by their own dids.
