werent standing lonely vigil on the mountain, you might saythat there was no sign of anything unusual about him The earliestsources describe him with infuriating vagueness for those of uswho need images He was neither tall nor short, they say Neitherdark nor fair Neither thin nor stout But here and there, specificdetails slip through, and when they do, they are surprising Surely aman spending night after night in solitary meditation would be agaunt, ascetic figure, yet far from being pale and wan, he had round,rosy cheeks and a ruddy complexion He was stockily built, almostbarrel chested, which may partly account for his distinctive gait, alwaysleaning forward slightly as though he were hurrying toward something.And he must have had a stiff neck, because people wouldremember that when he turned to look at you, he turned his wholebody instead of just his head The only sense in which he was conventionallyhandsome was his profile the swooping hawk nose long considereda sign of nobility in the Middle East.On the surface, you might conclude that he was an average Meccan.At forty years old, the son of a man he had never seen, he hadmade a far better life for himself than had ever seemed possible.The child born an outsider within his own society had finally wonacceptance, and carved out a good life despite the odds against him.He was comfortably off, a happily married business agent with therespect of his peers If he was not one of the movers and shakers of hisprosperous city, that was precisely why people trusted him to representtheir interests They saw him as a man with no axe of his own togrind, a man who would consider an offer or a dispute on its meritsand decide accordingly He had found a secure niche in the world, andhad earned every right, in middle age, to sit back and enjoy his rise torespectability So what was he doing alone up here on one of themountains that ringed the sleeping city below Why would a happilymarried man isolate himself this way, standing in meditation throughthe night There was a hint, perhaps, in his clothing By now he could certainlyhave afforded the elaborate embroidered silks of the wealthy,but his clothing was low key His sandals were worn, the leatherthongs sun bleached paler than his skin His homespun robe wouldbe almost threadbare if it hadnt been so carefully patched, and it washardly enough to shield him against the night time cold of the highdesert Yet something about the way he stood on the mountainsidemade the cold irrelevant Tilted slightly forward as though leaninginto the wind, his stance seemed that of someone who existed at anangle to the earth.Certainly a man could see the world in a different way up here Hecould find peace in the silence, with just the soughing of the wind overthe rock for company, far from the feuds and gossip of the city with itsarguments over money and power Here, a man was merely a speck inthe mountain landscape, his mind free to think and reflect, and thenfinally to stop thinking, stop reflecting, and submit itself to thevastness.Look closer and you might detect the shadow of loneliness in thecorners of his eyes, something lingering there of the outsider he hadonce been, as though he were haunted by the awareness that at anymoment everything hed worked so long and hard for could be takenaway You might see a hint of that same mix of vulnerability and resolutenessin his mouth, the full lips slightly parted as he whispered intothe darkness And then perhaps youd ask why contentment was notenough Did the fact that it had been so hard earned make him unableto accept it as a given, never to be secure in his right to it But thenwhat would What was he searching for Was it a certain peace withinhimself, perhaps Or was it something a glimpse, maybe justan intimation, of something larger One thing is certain by Muhammads own account, he was completelyunprepared for the enormity of what he would experience onthis particular night in the year 610.A rich biography Those who read it will come away well prepared to understand the prophet whose message, 14 centuries later, is the creed of than a billion and a halfpeople The San
