From The Back Cover:
The final renewal of the prophetic tradition was the function of the last Prophet and Messenger Muhammad (PBUH), and it is in this perspective of constantly renewed Divine guidance that we must view the story of Muhammad's (PBUH) life. It was not an isolated event but rather the culmination of a lengthy series of constantly renewed Divine Revelations.
The finality of the Prophethood of Muhammad (PBUH) makes it, of course, relevant to us in a way that is not the case in any of the previous revelations, since by virtue of its lastness it contains the final instructions from the Creator to His creatures. Because of this, Allah has ensured that it has remained accessible to us in every detail both as regards the actual revealed Book, the Noble Qur'an, and as regards the implementation of the revelation in the life of Muhammad (PBUH) and his Companions.
For this reason study of this extraordinary story is absolutely necessary for all who want to know their place in human history and to know what a human being really is and how to become one.
