Gairdner’s medieval approach to characterization of prophet of Islam
Abstract:   (1749 Views)
In this research, the Gairdner’s new strategy in characterization of Prophet of Islam is being explored. The research question is how a biased approach to description of Prophet of Islam, despite its scientific and academic appearance, has presented a distorted account of the Prophet’s life. The ideas produced by this approach don’t aim to show features of Islam and its prophet to the west, but have purposed to prove for some Muslims that Muhammad’s system of faith has not ever been qualified for being a universal religion. Most works written before Gairdner for European Christians also reflected kinds of hostility to the prophet, but Gairdner, who worked and lived in Egypt, paying attention to the social texture of Egypt, chose a different way which without insult and insolence, has endeavored to confirm that Islam just belongs to his time and Muhammad’s teachings, unlike those of Christ, are not applicable to all places and all ages.
Keywords: William Henry Temple Gairdner, Christian missions, Prophet Muhammad, Egypt, colonialism
