This highly regarded volume was the first to explore the doctrine of prophetic revelation, a critical and definitive area of Islamic religious and political thought. In it, the esteemed Islamic scholar Fazlur Rahman traces the inception of this doctrine from ancient Greek texts, its interpretation and elaboration by Muslim philosophers in order to suit their vision of the Prophet, and finally, the varying degrees of acceptance of these convergent ideas by the Muslim orthodoxy. The latest edition of this classic text includes a new foreword by Islamic studies expert Michael Sells, confirming "Prophecy in Islam" as the best source on its subject after more than half a century.
