Prophet Muhammad’s “Emotional Intelligence” and the Christians of Najran

Dr. Mohamed Bin Ali of the prestigious Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore produced an article on the role of “emotional intelligence” in Christian-Muslim relations, with a specific focus on lessons learned from Prophet Muhammad’s encounters with the Christians of Najran.

I am honored to see that he cited two of my books – The Humanity of Muhammad – A Christian View (Blue Dome Press 2020) and People of the Book – Prophet Muhammad’s Encounters with Christians (Hurst/Oxford 2021). He also cited one of my Huffington Post articles.

The article “Emotional Intelligence in Interfaith Relations – Lessons from Prophet Muhammad’s Interaction with the Christians of Najran” is freely available to download online.

Dr. Bin Ali is an Assistant Professor in in Inter-Religious Relations in Plural Societies (SRP) Programme in the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). His areas of interest include Islamic jurisprudence, Islamist ideologies, religious extremism, inter-religious relations, and the rehabilitation of Muslim extremists. He earned a BA in Islamic Jurisprudence from Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, an MSc in International Relations from Nanyang Technological University, and a PhD in Arab and Islamic Studies from the University of Exeter.
