Summary "This book aims to demonstrate that the accounts that feature Muhammad's grandfather in Ibn Ishaq's Sira are the product of narrative engineering. Through a narrative sequence, in which Abd al-Muttalib is the hero, several intriguing episodes follow one another in a causal manner and lead to the birth of a future prophet. Articulated with a historical anthropology, the narrative analysis reveals that the Sīra is the heir to the royal literature of the Ancient Near East. Using motifs and themes from the culture of the Fertile Crescent, the Sīra makes Abd al-Muttalib a royal figure in the service of legitimising the Abbasid dynasty, heir par excellence to Ishmael and restorer of the Abrahamic covenant. Cet ouvrage entend demontrer que les recits qui mettent en scene le grand-pere de Muhammad dans la Sra d'Ibn Ishaq sont le produit d'une ingénierie narrative. À travers une sequence narrative, dont Abd al-Muttalib est le heros, plusieurs episodes intriguant s'enchainent d'une maniere causale et aboutissent a la naissance d'un futur prophete. Articulee a une anthropologie historique, l'analyse narrative revele que la Sīra est l'heritiere de la litterature royale du Proche Orient Ancien. A partir de motifs et de thematiques issues de la culture du croissant fertile, la Sira fait de Abd al-Muttalib une figure royale au service de la legitimation de la dynastie abbasside, heritier par excellence d'Ismael et restaurateur de l'alliance abrahamique"-- Provided by publisher
