Recent course/book – Muhammad: How He Can Make You Extraordinary


“I have heard Dr. Hesham Al-Awadi speak about Prophet Muhammad and have read his works on them. What I appreciate greatly is his approach to the Life of the Prophet from a very modern practical perspective. His book Muhammad: How He Can Make You Extraordinary is an excellent example of his approach. Indeed the life of the Prophet Muhammad is a potential source of inspiration for anyone – Muslim or not. And this book is a good way to prove that point. “

– Mirza Baig, author of Leadership Lessons from the Life o

f Rasoolullah: Proven techniques of how to succeed in today’s world

“I have read quite few biographies of Prophet Muhammad, but this one is truly unique with a lot of practical guidance/action-statements. This is definitely not your ‘traditional’ biography where Prophet-hood is the focal point of Prophet Muhammad’s life but rather portraying him as a human(-first) who had exceptional manners and skills, from which each and every one of us can learn and implement those lessons in our lives.”
