Description

A biography of the founder of Islam, which is neither an indictment nor an apology but which is just and discriminative in appreciation.

From its birth, Islam found itself in conflict with neighboring Christianity. One result of this encounter was Crusades which stemmed the tie of Islam. The other was Oriental Studies which had a more lasting effect.

The early Christian scholars portrayed Islam as a spurious creed and a baneful superstition, and its author as a false prophet. But time softened their approach and they became more conciliatory. Some of them also realized that Christianity and Islam were very similar in their sources, perspective and psychic affinity and any fundamental attack on the one was an attack on the other.

So by the time Dr. David Samuel Margoliouth, a great linguist and scholar and author of the present volume, came upon the stage much had changed. He found himself writing for an age which had its own perceptions and interest and which was also less believing. He therefore decided, even though he was a minister of the Church of England, that his book should be free from any sectarian bias. He was also resolved to observe towards the prophet of Islam the respectful attitude which his position in the Islamic world deserved. Thus he has produced a biography which is neither an indictment nor an apology but which is just and discriminating in appreciation.
