in 1875 Ameer Ali was the author of a short work entitled 'A Critical Examination of the Life and Teachings of Mohammed'. From this many influential Western writers drew information to produce their own works, although these almost exclusively examined the purely theological aspects of Islam. In the present work, the author set out to redress this imbalance, attempting to 'embody the philosophical and ethical spirit of Islam,' in particular that those in the west might more understand the essential nature of that religion. In this respect the work can be seen as representing a significant milestone in modern Islamic writings and, though almost a century has passed since first it was published, it remains an important work for both teachers and students of Islam today.
