"Muhammad of Mecca: Prophet of Islam" by Elsa Marston (2001), 128 pgs, small hardback, English. Chapters: (1) The Early years; (2) the first revelations; (3) the Break, (4) Muhammad's campaign; (5) The road back to Mecca; (6) Muhammad the man; (7) the message; (8) the years after Muhammad's death; Chronology, Glossary. This books contains the standard, but very brief, life of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. Pertaining to the `Satanic Verses' incident, the author wrote: "A puzzling incident occurred a few years after Muhammad started preaching. One revelation he received seemed to say that people could worship at the shrines of three important female deities.... When Muhammad made this revelation public, it was understood as a compromise with the Quraysh. Then Muhammad received another revelation, which denied the earlier one. No, this message said, the three deities had no special standing and ... must be rejected. Muhammad explained that the first message could not have come from God, but must have come from Satan." That's it. No other analysis. The question becomes, might there be other ayats revealed by Muhammad that came from Satan, also? The author noted that Muhammad pondered how his followers were going to survive in Medina? The author opined: "For a solution, Muhammad turned to the old Arabian practice--raiding. Raiding was a rough-and-tumble way of redistributing wealth among the tribes--almost like a sport" (p. 62). No analysis of morality here - apparently it was okay with Allah that Muhammad stole from others! The author noted: "From the earlier primary goals of gaining a livelihood and harassing the Meccans, they began developing into jihad.... Is generally understood as `holy war.'....It provided justification for Muslims fighting their own kinsmen in Mecca, and for Medinans fighting Meccans with whom they had no quarrel...." (p. 64). Regarding the Jews, "The Prophet had been bitterly disappointed when the Jews did not accept him... He began to see their political power as a danger. It would be safest, Muhammad evidently decided, to have them out of the picture" (72). The author noted Muhammad "determined to teach the [Jewish} tribe a lesson....When the tribe surrendered, there was no mercy. The men were executed, the women and children sold as slaves" (p. 73). The author refers readers to: Karen Armstrong, Maxime Rodinson, and W. Montgomery Watt. This book covers the basic (but very BRIEF) details of Muhammad's life. An introductory read for teenagers.
