The Top Ten

1
Muhammad
Well he was ranked as number 1 in Michael H. Hart's book "The 100", he did many great things in his life, he always thought of others, he loved and died poor, he didn't seek revenge.

The sad thing is that people always try to ruin his greatness by saying lies about him and they try to destroy his view, but they always fail because people who read about his life will know why did he deserve to be the number 1 upon all humans.

Read about his battles and the aftermath so you can know and understand that he didn't fight for glory or money and that he didn't force anyone to convert to Islam, and know how he treated his enemies and the people around him.

No matter what Muslims do we will never be able to thank him or be even 10% like him, trust me he is almost perfect so never believe what ignorants say about him because there r hundreds of books that wrote about his true life so try reading them because his life was hard yet happy.

May god guide you to the right path
Peace be upon him

May he takes us to the heaven with him.

I love and respect him more than any human being in the whole wide world.
He is the greatest human being ever to live..
Because he is the prophet for not only muslims but for all man kind and he is the man mostly followed by the most number of peoples in the world. I do not like to make any statements which makes hurt to any religion but one thing being the truth that is; for the mankind there is any speech/direction like the Hadith and Speech of Last Pilgrimage made by any other prophet or religious leader ever, so other than the Quran the said Speech and Hadith is sufficient to prove that undoubtedly Muhammad is the number 1 greatest man of the world.
Yes he is the best man in the world like him no one can become and no one come like hi.
[Newest]I love him and respect in the whole world

2Jesus Christ
He is without comparison. Regardless of your personal beliefs, Jesus Christ has objectively influenced humanity in thought, devotion, and deed in terms of quality and quantity more than any mortal being history has and will ever know. One aspect of His greatness may be seen in the greatness of His influence His influence. Moreover, His extensive influence was not owing to things He wrote, built, invented, conquered, discovered, developed, or dreamed--His influence was most particularly the result of who He is and what He did on behalf of guilty and morally corrupt people. He is the only Substitute the world will ever know!
He is the greatest whoever came to the earth and gave his life for the salvation of mankind, reconciling them to God and giving them purpose for life and promised heaven to everyone who believes in him as the way, the truth and the life.
I love Jesus very much. However, Jesus is out of this poll, because according to your belief Jesus is god, right? And you cannot compare a man kind with god, it will be unfair, of course you know that.
Because Jesus is only the way the truth and the life, when you visit the grave of any person that they considered as a God they will found a dead body. But when we visit the grave of Jesus, we found nothing, because Jesus raise again
[Newest]When jesus was alive, just a handful of people gave him any respect, just like in the case of Michael jackson.. Yes, jesus is a great prophet of god but came to the world for just 2 reasons..1) to guide the people of Israel back into the accordance of moses.2) to give glad tidings of the comforter (muhammad) to come after him.. Unlike muhammad who came as a mercy for ALL of mankind, jesus just came to the lost sheep of Israel

He has done a job that is unmatched in the world till now. He sacrificed his entire life studying best than any other scholar at the cost of his entire family life. His literature about India is greatest for not only Indians but for any human being. His written works are treasure. He Got his M.A., M. Sc, Ph. D, L.L. D, D. Sc., D. Litt, BAR AT LAW.

ONE.
Dr.B.R. Ambedkar transformed the most heterogeneous and unequal society of the world into an equal and progressive society. He liberalized not only the lower strata of society but also the Upper strata and that to specially the womans. The revolution done by Dr. Ambedkar is the only revolution in the world which took without a single bloodshed. He single handedly fought the social evils against all odds and hurdles specially created by the then populist Congress Party. India is very grateful to have a leader like DR. Ambedkar who made the country what it is now. He is rightly called "The Father of Modern India".

These peoples were not allowed to get education, wealth, worship, water, well dressed, willing food, wishfull lifepartner, even not allowed to seen in publicaly, they are treated as less human more than animal, they are forced to live in misery, and forced labour from last 10, 000 years.

AAmbedkar ji gave them the right of Equality.

5Buddha
He was truly a greatest person ever. He have rejected all the concepts which cannot be proven scientifically, practically in real life. He never accepts anything simply because it has been delivered/preached by a elders or popular figure. He rejected the existence of god or any supernatural power which will change the human life. He suggested that only we can bring changes in our life by following 'middle path' and attain nirvana. The entire world will live peacefully by following him.
Before Buddha, did man ever know that he could live as great a life as proposed by Him. His self-control is one of the things that admire in the whole of Humanity. Buddha's principles, if strictly followed, will definitely change where the world's headed to! And, by the way, I'm a Hindu!
Buddha was the greatest man of the world who knew the reality of universe and nature of live that was he could teacher people understand about their live and the way to release their life from sorrow. Peace is possible to everyone and places of the world.
[Newest]Is a so much great person in world history.

9Mahatma Gandhi
Gandhi taught the world what peace was and has even inspired other leaders. He lead a country to freedom without killing anyone. It's a shame he was killed.
A lady goes to Gandhi and requests him to tell her child not eat jaggery (candy). Gandhi tells to see him after a month. Surprised, she goe goes away. After a month she meets him. Then tells the child not to eat candy. The lady asks Gandhi why did he need a month's time to tell this simple thing to her child. Gandhi said, " I have to stop eating jaggery and then only I can tell your child not to eat. " This Gandhi, he practised what he preached. Therefore, with all his limitations, he is one of the greatest men in the world

The Contenders

11Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler IS the greatest man Alive. Just think of it, he rose from the ashes of a corrupt and Jew infested country that deserved all the glory the US possessed. He had a great plan from the beginning and it was evident that he was loved since he met little to no resistance when his campaign had barely started.

But it was the Jews who incriminated him, making him look like an evil dictator who just killed for fun. In reality, Hitler was just trying to purify his precious Aryan Master Race, but the Jews had to oppose. As a result, Hitler used force to cleanse his nation. Concentration Camps were not a thing back then. The Jews were the ones who funded the workers who lay the dead in mass graves and it was also them who built the gas chambers.

The only mistake that Hitler made was invading the Soviet Union. No one is successful of achieving such task, unless you were the Mongols.
I don't know if you're a Nazi or just too stupid to know what you're even talking about.

ruJILLous

Adolf Hitler: creator of the Nazi party in Germany and killer of the Jews.

He recognized that the Jews were a huge problem to the economy of post WWI Germany before much of the populace knew it. The Jews were leeching on the economy of Germany only for their own personal gain. They had no regard for any of the other people of the state and would've taken over all of the large corporations had Hitler not thwarted their efforts.

He only made one mistake; invading the Soviet Union. Such a mistake proved fatal to his great state that we now call the Third Reich. It was a small slip up, and his brilliance was firmly situated in politics, not military strategy.

However, ever since the defeat of the Third Reich the world as a whole has been slowly plummeting. America's failure to see the USSR as a great threat bit them had repercussions in an event we now know as the Cold War. Even now, Russia still poses a large threat to the world at large. Additionally, the Jews now have their own state; Israel. They annexed the people of Palestine and tried to expand their territory (which was luckily stopped). Had Hitler won, concerns like these would not exist as there would be no Jews that we had to deal with. The world would be well.
I totally agree with you but invading the Soviet Union was not a mistake, Soviet Union was vulnerable to the Germans. The problem was poor tactical planning which included improper arrangement of military vehicles and not focusing on defense. Military vehicles were not sent in convoys of a few hundred but thousands of vehicles were sent altogether for blitzkrieg, this resulted in massive traffic jams and delayed the invasion of France and the Soviet Union by two weeks each. Following the delay the French remained unprepared but the Soviets prepared a great defensive front, stopping the invasion. When it comes to poor defense, the poor equipped Hungarian and Romanian troops were defending the occupied territory in the Soviet troops while the well equipped German and Italian troops were attacking. This led to the defeat of Hungarian and Romanian troops and the German and Italian troops got surrounded. The Reinforcements were incapable of Stopping the Soviets and the Germans lost the War to the Soviets.

If Hitler had won the war, the USA and Germany would be the two superpowers today, undisputed. We'd have technological advancements the likes we can't dream of, instead of focusing 60 years of R&D on nuclear weaponry and warfare, we'd focus on society, healthcare, the environment. Taxes would be reasonable and tarrifs would be a real thing, stimulating domestic economies by forcing production to stay home.

Islamic extremism as we know it today would not exist. The Israeli nation would be situated in old Khazar lands, to prevent permanent conflict between the Jews and Muslims.

Our world would be at peace, enforced by the joint power of US-German oversight. The UN as we know it, a corrupt, Russian dominated institution, would not exist. The league of nations would be restored and given a proper place in the world as an objective arbiter of truth.

Drug usage would be decriminalized, and the focus would be on rehabilitation and education to prevent addiction, as opposed to permanent punishment.

Arts, music, movies would not be hollow as we see today. Culture would be the pride of the nations, just behind scientific advancement and societal health. Not just an afterthought.

We'd be living in a utopia of ideals and freedom, the modern mentality of PC-censorship would not exist.

This is what we would see if the man I regard as the greatest to ever live were able to JOIN the US and the UK, as opposed to forces outside our control conspiring and pushing them to war.
[Newest]He is great and a big idiot like any other leader. And anyone who thinks he is evil, is strictly narrow minded and stereotype. He is no different then Washington, Truman, Churchill, Gandhi, queen Elizabeth etc. As they say terrorist for one country and freedom fighter for another.

I don't have time to explain this. Just use your mind.

12Moses
He is the prophet and my teacher
He is very respective prophet. he served all his life against the pharoas and was sucessful in defeating him
According to the Muslims, Moses (Musa) was the only human being who spoke directly to God. He talked to God as if both were best for frieds of each other. Moses always stove for what was right and helped each person who needed him. He trusted God every time and never asked why he has to fulfil any order commanded by God. Below is a very brief part of Moses mentioned in the Holy Qur'an. Wow! Also in the chapter named after Mary:

Also mention in the Book (the story of) Moses: for he was specially chosen, and he was a messenger (and) a prophet.

And we called him from the right side of Mount (Sinai), and made him draw near to Us, for mystic (converse).

And, out of Our Mercy, We gave him his brother Aaron, (also) a prophet.

13Martin Luther
Hated Jews, pretty good with me.
Its true he is a good man but the rest are all false I can bare full witness of it and he started no church even he started he is true person of christ
I think people have made a mistake. Martin Luther was the man who separated from the Catholic Church and started the Protestant Church. Martin Luther King Jr. was the man who was a civil rights activist; he was named after Martin Luther. I can see why you're all confused, but Martin Luther was the man who started the Protestant Chruch

14Nelson Mandela

15Swami Vivekananda
Vivekananda was man who saw God in the World, and he became God, without revealing self to the world. He explained that Humanism is the greatest practices, and religion means realization of self and God. While people of the world is superstitious till he showed all the God was human. Like us.
If we can follow our own intentions with pure heart and love for welfare of humanity. Only then we are human. God is not just concept written in books. God is real and one need to really see him (God). Not just blindly follow the books. While following books only people will get brain worms of hate, jealous, ego.. Like I am better, he is better etc. All the best Greatest man on the earth is child. Which always remain pure. Till death. Find that one guy in the world is real god.
Its most greatest humans leader
Only one real man
