Unit Code: EM028-612
Pre or Co-requisites: Yes
In this unit we will study the life of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, from a Christian perspective.
We will look at the social, political and religious background of seventh century Arabia, and discuss the question of whether he actually existed. Then we follow the standard Muslim chronology of his life, looking particularly at his revelations, his military and political activities, his personal life and his relationships with women. Muslim perspectives are included through an extensive use of video clips.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to outline the significant events in the life of Muhammad, to understand the challenges and opportunities that he faced and how he dealt with them, to assess his personality and character from a biblical perspective, and to compare and contrast his life with that of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
