The Days of Mohammed   By:

Book cover

The Days of Mohammed by Anna May Wilson is a captivating and thought-provoking novel that takes readers on an intimate journey through the life of its protagonist, Mohammed. Set in present-day Morocco, the book explores the complexities of identity, personal growth, and the search for meaning in a rapidly changing world.

Wilson's writing style is both elegant and evocative, painting vivid pictures of the Moroccan landscape and immersing the reader in the rich cultural tapestry of the country. With her descriptive prose, she succeeds in making the setting come alive, allowing readers to feel the scorching sun, smell the aromatic spices, and hear the bustling sounds of the marketplace.

One of the book's greatest strengths lies in its character development. Mohammed is a deeply complex and relatable protagonist whose journey provides a window into the internal struggles faced by many individuals in today's interconnected world. As he navigates his own conflicting desires and aspirations, the readers are drawn into his world, sympathizing with his triumphs and tribulations.

Throughout the narrative, Wilson expertly weaves together themes of tradition and modernity, religion and secularism, and personal freedom and societal expectations. These contrasting elements create a narrative tension that keeps readers engaged, as they ponder the choices Mohammed must make and the consequences that follow.

While The Days of Mohammed tackles weighty themes, it is not without its moments of humor and light-heartedness. Wilson injects humor into her prose with witty dialogue and amusing anecdotes, which provide a welcome respite from the more contemplative aspects of the story. This delicate balance between serious introspection and light-hearted humor makes the book even more accessible and enjoyable.

Another notable aspect of the book is Wilson's meticulous research. It is evident that she has conducted extensive background work to ensure authenticity in her portrayal of Moroccan culture and society. From the nuances of Moroccan customs and traditions to the political and economic challenges faced by the country, Wilson presents a comprehensive picture that adds depth and realism to the narrative.

If there is one criticism to be given, it is that the pacing of the novel can sometimes feel uneven. While most of the story unfolds at a steady pace, there are moments when the narrative lags, and readers may find themselves eager for the plot to move forward. Nevertheless, these moments are few and far between and do not detract significantly from the overall enjoyment of the book.

In conclusion, The Days of Mohammed is a beautifully written novel that explores important themes and offers readers a glimpse into the intricacies of Moroccan society. Anna May Wilson's talent for storytelling and her attention to detail create a compelling narrative that will resonate with readers long after they have turned the final page. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking a thought-provoking and immersive literary experience.

In "The Days of Mohammed," one aim of the author has been to bring out the fact that it is possible to begin the heaven life on earth. It is hoped that a few helpful thoughts as to the means of attaining this life may be exemplified in the career of the various characters depicted.

An attempt has been made, by constant reference to the best works on Mohammed and Arabia, to render the historical basis strictly correct.

Bush; also to the travels of Burckhardt, Joseph Pitts, Ludovico Bartema and Giovanni Finati, each of whom undertook a pilgrimage to the cities of Medina and Mecca; also to the excellent synopsis of the life and times of Mohammed as given by Prof. Max Müller in the introduction to Palmer's translation of the Koran.

As the tiny pebble cast into the water sends its circling wavelets to the distant shore, so this little book is cast forth upon the world, in the hope that it may exert some influence in bringing hope and comfort to some weary heart, and that, in helping someone to attain a clearer conception of Divine love and companionship, it may, if in never so insignificant a degree, perhaps help on to that time when all shall
