Muhammad (SAW): 1001 Universal Appreciations and Interfaith Understanding and Peace
Based on the perceptions of non-Muslims, this book uncovers the truth about Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) and explains the reasons for misunderstanding between Islam and the West. It also highlights the prophet’s characteristics and teachings which help to build unity and peace amongst Muslims and other communities. Data was collected by reviewing appreciations of Muhammad (SAW) made by non-Muslims across history and also conducting semi-structured interviews involving contemporary non-Muslim prominent personalities including MPs, Lords, and priests from interfaith communities and chaplaincies of some leading universities.
