About the Author:

Aisha Gouverneur, an American convert to Islam, lived in Egypt for 10 years, studying Arabic and Islam while teaching. She raised her family in Cambridge, England where she completed her MA and was a research fellow at Clare Hall, Cambridge University. The Gouverneurs founded the renowned publishing house, The Islamic Texts Society, which went on to receive the 1991 and 1993 awards for the Best Produced and Designed Book in Great Britain. It was at that time that she and her dear friend, Leila Azzam, wrote this title which has become a classic and is now available in the U.S.A. book market. Mrs. Gouverneur continues to publish in World Religions and has been a teacher for 35 years.

Review:

"An excellent work...reflects not only the knowledge of the two writers but also their depth of commitment to Islam." -- Link International

"At long last a definitive children's version of the life of the Messenger of Allah has appeared in English." -- Arab News

"The book is a great success and should be widely used by Muslim and non-Muslim children alike." -- Centre for the Study of Islam & Christian-Muslim Relations
