Before becoming the Prophet of Islam, Mohammed was a simple man of flesh and blood who started life as a poor orphan in the Arabian city of Mecca. Through his union with Khadija, he became a prosperous merchant and caravaneer. He was visited by God at the age of forty to become a Prophet and visionary statesman. The Silence of Mohammed is the story of "this exceptional man" (Bachi). Based on historical fact and legends, the novel presents a fictionalised account of the life of Mohammed told by four key characters: his first wife, Khadija; his closest friend, Calif Abu Bakr; the fiery warrior, General Khalid; and his last love Aisha.
