German translation of book on the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.A.)
German version of the book on the lifestyle and high character of Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.A.) is recently published for the German speaking readers of Islamic sources.
“Mohammad (S.A.W.A.) the Prophet” is the name of the book by Indian Professor K S Ramakrishna Rao, which includes chapters on the lifestyle and thoughts of the prophet of Islam published in German language
With a foreword by Mohammad Razavi Rad, the book hails the status of prophet of Islam (S.A.W.A.) as “the greatest mind among all the sons of Arabia”.
The Indian author in part of the book refers to his beginning steps to pen the book and writes,” When I thought of writing on Mohammad(S.A.W.A.) the prophet, I was a bit hesitant because it was to write about a religion I do not profess and it is a delicate matter to do so for there are many persons professing various religions and belonging to diverse school of thought and denominations even in same religion. Though it is sometimes, claimed that religion is entirely personal yet it cannot be gain-said that it has a tendency to envelop the whole universe seen as well unseen. It somehow permeates something or other our hearts, our souls, our minds their conscious as well as subconscious and unconscious levels too. The problem assumes overwhelming importance when there is a deep conviction that our past, present and future all hang by the soft delicate, tender silk cord. If we further happen to be highly sensitive, the center of gravity is very likely to be always in a state of extreme tension. Looked at from this point of view, the less said about other religion the better. Let our religions be deeply hidden and embedded in the resistance of our innermost hearts fortified by unbroken seals on our lips.”
Still in another part of the book, the author, quotes prominent world thinkers on the high status of Holy Prophet Mohammad(S.A.W.A.) and holy book of Islam as, “Even a hostile critic like Sir William Muir speaking about the Holy Quran says that, "There is probably in the world no other book which has remained twelve centuries with so pure text." I may also add Prophet Mohammad is also a historic personality, every event of whose life has been most carefully recorded and even the minutest details preserved intact for the posterity. His life and works are not wrapped in mystery.”
