Watt (right), being interviewed by [[Ali Akbar Abdolrashidi]]. William Montgomery Watt (14 March 1909 – 24 October 2006) was a Scottish Orientalist, historian, academic, and Anglican priest. From 1964 to 1979, he was Professor of Arabic and Islamic studies at the University of Edinburgh. He was also a contributor to the field of Quranic studies.

Watt was one of the foremost non-Muslim interpreters of Islam in the West, and according to Carole Hillenbrand "an enormously influential scholar in the field of Islamic studies and a much-revered name for many Muslims all over the world". Watt's comprehensive biography of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, ''Muhammad at Mecca'' (1953) and ''Muhammad at Medina'' (1956), are considered to be classics in the field. Provided by Wikipedia
