Six Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of his Time
Author: Muhammad ibn 'Abd Allah | Edited by: John Andrew Morrow | Published by: Covenants Press | ISBN: 9781621380023 | Paperback
The Six Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of his Time The Primary Documents are the written words of the Prophet Muhammad himself, peace and blessings be upon him. Renewed by caliphs and sultans, supported by scores of fatwas, and accepted as law for nearly 1400 years, these documents were common knowledge to educated Muslims and Christians until the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, after which they virtually disappeared from collective consciousness. Their rediscovery will certainly open a new filed in both Islamic Studies and interfaith relations. This book should sit side by side with the Qur'an in both mosques and homes. If Muslims are ever to recover the reality of Islam and undergo a collective awakening, these covenants of hope will play a major part in that restoration. Those wishing to familiarize themselves with Dr. Morrow's exhaustive arguments supporting the authenticity of these Covenants should refer to The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World (Angelico, 2013).
