In this book, Gulen delves deep into the reasons as to how a single man - with no means of power - was able to leave such indelible marks on millions of minds and souls. Rather than listing events in a chronological biography, Gulen follows an analytical framework of the Prophet's mission and character, providing numerous accounts from his lifetime. Gulen presents the Prophet in the different roles he assumed within his community as a father, husband, statesman, chief of staff, and an individual with utmost compassion, wisdom, grace, humility, and trustworthiness. One of the most celebrated teachers of Islam in Turkey, Gulen is outstanding with his double-winged intellectual background that is embedded in traditional Islamic scholarship on the one hand and his progressive vision on the other. "Muhammad: The Messenger of God" is regarded as Gulen's masterpiece and has been published in 12 languages.
