It took a while, but here it is. This is a gift to my readers on the blessed occasion of the Prophet Muhammad's birthday, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. I call it a gift because it represents my best effort to respect both the academic framework in which I needed to operate while still trying to remain faithful to my worldview. Of course, I am aware that the considerable limitations of my knowledge are reflected in my work. So, I apologize for all the mistakes and flaws it contains. Moreover, for those passages that are worthy of interest, praise belongs to Allah alone. If you wish to read the thesis, click here and go to the page where it can be downloaded.
