Muhammad: a frank look at his influential (and violent) life and teachings
In The Truth about Muhammad, New York Times bestselling author and Islam expert Robert Spencer offers an honest and telling portrait of the founder of Islam-perhaps the first such portrait in half a century-unbounded by fear and political correctness, unflinching, and willing to face the hard facts about Muhammad's life that continue to affect our world today.

From Muhammad's first "revelation" from Allah (which filled him with terror that he was demonpossessed) to his deathbed (from which he called down curses upon Jews and Christians), it's all here-told with extensive documentation from the sources that Muslims themselves consider most reliable about Muhammad.

Spencer details Muhammad's development from a preacher of hellfire and damnation into a political and military leader who expanded his rule by force of arms, promising his warriors luridly physical delights in Paradise if they were killed in his cause. He explains how the Qur'an's teaching on warfare against unbelievers developed-with constant war to establish the hegemony of Islamic law as the last stage.

Spencer also gives the truth about Muhammad's convenient "revelations" justifying his own licentiousness; his joy in the brutal murders of his enemies; and above all, his clear marching orders to his followers to convert non-Muslims to Islam-or force them to live as inferiors under Islamic rule.

In The Truth about Muhammad, you'll learn

- The truth about Muhammad's multiple marriages (including one to a nine-year-old) - How Muhammad set legal standards that make it virtually impossible to prove rape in Islamic countries - How Muhammad's example justifies jihad and terrorism - The real "Satanic verses" incident (not the Salman Rushdie version) that remains a scandal to Muslims - How Muhammad's faulty knowledge of Judaism and Christianity has influenced Islamic theology--and colored Muslim relations with Jews and Christians to this day.

Recognizing the true nature of Islam, Spencer argues, is essential for judging the prospects for largescale Islamic reform, the effective prosecution of the War on Terror, the democracy project in Afghanistan and Iraq, and immigration and border control to protect the United States from terrorism.

All of which makes it crucial for every citizen (and policymaker) who loves freedom to read and ponder The Truth about Muhammad

The Truth About Muhammad
Average rating
5 / 5
Excellent distillation of the Islamic scriptures
October 4th, 2015
The first roughly half of the book I found heavy going because of the Middle Eastern names and other content that provides a background to the story of Mu'd, but once that was done I found the book fascinating and highly educational, and I learnt an amazing amount of useful knowledge that very forcefully burnt away the politically correct myths and faery tales one is bombarded with by the average Muslim, and came to see who Mu'd really was and what he really did and was like, and as a result I no longer laboured under any illusions about Mu'd. On the contrary I now am convinced I know the truth about Muhammad or rather Mu'd because the World is now a muddier place thanks to him, and Muslims typically have muddied the waters of truth with their lies and propaganda, and it has taken people like Robert Spencer with the courage of their convictions to restore clarity and truth to this subject so thank you Robert Spencer for daring to bring me the truth about Mu'd! For that I will be forever grateful!
