Muhammad b. Umar al-Waqidi was a Muslim scholar, born in Medina in the 1st Century. Of his several writings the most significant is the Kitab al-Maghazi, one of the earliest standard histories of the life of the Prophet.
Translated into English for the first time, Rizwi Faizer makes available this key text to a new, English-speaking audience. It includes an Introduction authored jointly by Rizwi Faizer and Andrew Rippin and a carefully prepared index. The book deals with the events of the Prophets life from the time of his emigration from Mecca to his death, and is generally considered to be biographical. Bringing together events in the Prophets life with appropriate passages of Quran in a considered sequence, the author presents an interpretation of Islam that existed in his times. It includes citations from the Qurn, as well as poetry that appears to have been inspired by activities during his life.
This English translation of a seminal text on the life of Muhammad is an invaluable addition to the existing literature, and will be of great significance to students and scholars in the field of Islamic studies, Islamic history, Medieval history and Arabic literature.
