9780615400952: Noble Brother: The Story of the Last Prophet in Poetry

The story of the Prophet Muhammad has been told a myriad of times. His life, his actions, his words, his deeds, and all other aspects have been elucidated in detail. Yet, rarely has the amazing story of the Last Prophet been told in poetry. Noble Brother does just that. Noble Brother is the newest book by Dr. Hesham A. Hassaballa, co-author of The Beliefnet Guide to Islam and author of the blog, "God, Faith, and a Pen." It is a unique and creative way of telling the story of the Prophet Muhammad. For the Muslim, Noble Brother offers a completely different approach to this essential story of Islamic sacred history. For the non-Muslim, this book offers a light, engaging and non-intimidating look into a religious figure who has been the subject of both intrigue and mystery in the West. Noble Brother makes learning about the Prophet Muhammad much more interesting than a traditional historical account.
