Hamza Yusuf writes: "The novel textbook format with copious images, maps, and diagrams will help visually oriented readers to better grasp certain aspects of the Sirah." Such readers, a majority among the youth today, will find this book very attractive. However this book should be read with the help of a careful teacher who can point out its factual errors. For example the dates for the events in the early Madinah period are off by a year. The wisdom of use of copious quotes from Aslan, Watt and Armstrong is also debatable. However if these are kept in view then its nice presentation can be taken advantage of.
