Von Legenden berwuchert, durch Sprachregelungen entstellt, von Denkverboten verdunkelt, so zeigt sich dem Wissbegierigen das Bild Mohammeds. Ist er berhaupt eine historische Gestalt? Er ist es! So lautet das Ergebnis langjhriger Forschungsarbeit, die nicht nur die muslimischen Standardquellen einer kritischen Prfung unterzogen hat, sondern auch die vielschichtige "Nebenberlieferung". Mohammed erweist sich als der Exponent einer im 4. Jahrhundert einsetzenden hochreligisen Durchdringung des arabischen Heidentums, die sich nicht nur im Koran niedergeschlagen hat. Der historische Mohammed kmpfte zunchst vergeblich um die Macht in Mekka und setzte dann von Medina aus eine Eroberungswelle in Gang, die durch die politischen Verhltnisse der Zeit begnstigt wurde. Zwei Jahrzehnte nach seinem Tod kam sie zum ersten Mal zum Stillstand, die bergroen Erwartungen der Beteiligten wurden enttuscht. Der Blick zurck verklrte nun die Zeit, in der Mohammed unter den Lebenden geweilt hatte der Islam, untrennbar verknpft mit der idealisierten Gestalt des Propheten, betrat die Bhne der Geschichte. "Mir kommt es in meinen Bchern ,Mohammed. Leben und Legende' und ,Allahs Liebling. Ursprung und Erscheinungsformen des Mohammedglaubens' nicht auf eine Abbildung der muslimischen Biographie Mohammeds an, sondern auf die geschichtswissenschaftliche Erfassung seiner Gestalt und seines Wirkens vor dem Hintergrund der sptantiken vorderasiatischen Ereignis-, Gesellschafts- und Religionsgeschichte sowie auf die Schilderung der Genese und Weiterentwicklung des muslimischen Mohammedglaubens."

In The Mother of Mohammed , Four Corners journalist Sally Neighbour tells the extraordinary story of how a dope-smoking beach bunny from Mudgee, Robyn Hutchinson, became Rabiah-a member of the jihadist elite. Known among her peers as 'the mother of Mohammed', and as 'the Elizabeth Taylor of the jihad' in CIA circles, Rabiah lived for twenty years on the frontlines of the global holy war. With a reputation for tough investigative journalism, Sally Neighbour persuaded Rabiah to tell her story. She investigates how Rabiah became a trusted insider to the Jemaah Islamiyah, Taliban and al Qaeda leaderships, and married a leading figure in Osama bin Laden's inner sanctum. In The Mother of Mohammed Sally Neighbour discovers a world of converts and true believers. This unique and confronting account from inside the jihad helps us to understand the magnetism of the Islamist cause.
