The BookViral Review:

Joel Hayward sets aside religious fervour and hearsay in his impeccably and intensively researched book, ‘The Warrior Prophet Muhammad and War’. Rather than offering sentimentality and thinly veiled assumption, it represents a comprehensive and evidence-based historical account of the Prophet Muhammad and his God-sanctioned warfare, fought in the name of Allah.

Hayward’s tireless study is evidenced in his superbly executed academic writing, as he brings together the threads of past documentation and artefacts, shaping his words into a fully rounded account. With the fascinating backdrop of customs, practices and beliefs of the peoples of that time period, Hayward brings the Prophet Muhammad to life, focusing on his motivations and movements as he wielded great strength and power throughout the east, fighting alongside his soldiers in his God-ordained role. 

Insights into Muhammad’s status as a city merchant and great warrior standing against paganism and propagandising contrast with accounts detailing his non-coercive, flexible, and sometimes even gentle nature, creating a detailed understanding of an energetic warrior who nevertheless preferred diplomacy and communication of the truths of Islam to dictatorialism. Indeed, readers are able to ascertain a full spectrum of human emotion as they follow the Prophets Muhammad’s countless raids and skirmishes.

Interesting details of warfare such as the weapons carried and how the army survived in a hostile and barren environment, along with strategic detail and helpful illustrations, are complimented by some highly descriptive and beautiful ancient poetry which truly breathes life into long-dead traditions of a people who’s honour to God was reflected in the booty they fought for, and their highly esteemed traits of physical hardship and the struggle for survival.

Complete with comprehensive and extensive referencing, ‘The warrior Prophet – Muhammad and War’ is unreservedly recommended as a historically accurate fully researched work detailing the life and times of the Prophet Muhammad.
