This book has been written to supplement existing literature on the subject with a view to inform and enlighten those who seek knowledge and information, particularly the Western peoples who being ignorant of Arabic, Persian and Urdu languages have been fed with false information about Islam. For centuries, these people remained under a delusion, and their ideas about the new faith were ridiculously absurd. Some European writers have deliberately given a totally false account of Islam, its principles and history. They have tried to malign the august personality of the Holy Prophet of Islam, his relatives and companions by misrepresenting facts and character assassination.The descriptions given in this book may be short but are precise and comprehensive. Unimportant details have been omitted or barely touched. A detailed account can be found in any standard book of history or biography. The Chief object of this book is to give a brief but objective narrations of the life and activities of the Holy prophet and some other relevant issues drawn from credible sources. This book is a small attempt to portray a true picture and to remove misunderstandings of seekers of truth, who will find enough material to inform them and satisfy their quest and craving for facts.
