When Salek sets out to find out about the Prophet of Islam, he has no idea what awaits him— Why did his father leave him to follow a man he did not know? On his journey to seek the answer to this question and to know more about Muhammad, Salek meets many strangers on the way. Strangers who embrace him and tell him stories about the Muhammad they love and have faith in. Through their stories, Salek gets to know and love the man who valued truth, equality, kindness, and justice above all. This is an unusual collection of stories about the life of Prophet Muhammad— about the harsh deserts that were his home, the battles he fought, the choices he was faced with, and the path he chose. Seen through the eyes of a young boy, these tales of faith and discovery make for gripping reading.
