His major work, An Account of the Rise and Progress of Mahometanism, was the first English text to positively document the Prophet Muhammads life, celebrate the Quran as a divine revelation, and praise the Muslim toleration of Christians, undermining a long legacy of European prejudice and hostility.Nabil Matar, a leading scholar of Islamic-Western relations, standardizes Stubbes text and situates it within Englands theological climate.

He shows how, to draw a positive portrait of Muhammad, Stubbe embraced travelogues, early church histories, Arabic chronicles, Latin commentaries, and studies on Jewish customs and scriptures, produced in the language of Islam and in the midstof the Islamic polity.
