” I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind. ,,,, I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and his mission. This and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle.
When I closed the second volume (of the Prophet’s biography) i was sorry there was not more to read of that great life”
