Islam and the Arabian Prophet (1938)

The historical character of the Arabian Prophet has no parallel. Emerging from a bleak background Arabia Desert; orphaned in childhood; unlettered and untutored he arose and towered to become an organizer who moulded the warring tribes of his race into a nation which justified him and itself in the verdict of history; a social mentor and law giver by whose code today one-fifth of the human race is governed; a prophet who led human souls from idolatry and paganism into the simplest and clearest conception of the Creator and His worship. Rational and humane, he struck at all fetters and brought forth the first true Reformation by Faith and reason. He opposed slavery and abolished caste, class, color and race distinction. He encouraged learning and mercy, taught charity and good will.
