Is it recommended for Muslims to read the book Muhammed by Martin Lings? Isn’t he a non-Muslim?
In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate
May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad, his folk, companions, and followers
Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,
Martin Lings is a Muslim (Abu Bakr Siraj al-Din), and his biography is excellent, overall.
I would also recommend Shaykh Hamza Yusuf’s audio set, The Life of the Prophet Muhammad.
