Misquoting Muhammad : the challenge and choices of interpreting the Prophet's legacy / Jonathan A.C. Brown.
Brown, Jonathan (Jonathan A. C.),
2014
London : Oneworld,
9781780744209 (hbk.) :
Few things provoke controversy in the modern world like the religion brought by Muhammad. Modern media are replete with alarm over jihad, underage marriage and the threat of amputation or stoning under Shariah law. Sometimes rumour, sometimes based in fact and often misunderstood, the tenets of Islamic law and dogma were not set in the religion's founding moments. They were developed over centuries by the clerical class of Muslim scholars. 'Misquoting Muhammad' takes the reader back in time through Islamic civilization and traces how and why such controversies developed, offering an inside view into how key and controversial aspects of Islam took shape.
xxii, 361 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations (black and white, and colour), map (black and white) ; 24 cm
