عندما أنهيت كتاب "محمد في مكة" – هو الاصغر حجمًا – أتبعته مباشرة القراءة لكتابه الذي أعتبرته الجزء الثاني له وهو "محمد في المدينة" – وهو ضعف الكتاب الأول – ووجدت ضرورة إعتمادهما في مراجعة واحدة لأني أنوي التعليق على مجمل وجهة نظري تجاه كتابات وليام مونتقمري وات حول سيرة الرسول – صلى الله عليه وسلم – فجعلت كلا المراجعتين مراجعة واحدة. لذا أضع عنها مكررة.

وليام مونتقمري وات يكاد يعتبر من أخر المستشرقين الغربيين الذين أعتنوا بالتاريخ الإسلامي وهذه العناية حمّالة أوجه طبعًا لها مالها وعليها ماعليها.

Muhammed at Medina is a remarkable volume that covers the second part of the life of the prophet of Islam and the early days of his young nation after 622 CE, the year of Hijra when Muhammed left Mecca to Medina which also marks the first year of the Muslim calander. With much skill and ability to retrodict events and put them in their historical context, Watt offers this book as one of the most authentic works on the subject.

This is actually a sequel to Watt's Muhammad at Mecca. Montgomery is one of the most renowned Orientalists. He is such an unbiased author that one would never see a hint of hypocracy in any of his books. Muhammad at Medina is as good as Muhammad at Mecca.
