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.
[Newest]Prophet Mohammad was the Greatest Man above all the Prophets came to earth... He was and is closest and dearest to Allah because he was successful to deliver the message of Allah about the how the life of a man should be! Peace be upon Him

2Jesus Christ
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.
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!
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]Jesus will always be #1 on my list because he is the only man that ever died and rose from the dead. I know that he rose from the dead because the bible says that he sent back the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost and they they begin to speak in tongues as the spirit gave them utterance. I experienced this for myself and it was a life changing experience for me. I have not practiced sin for 29 years every since I spoke in tongues and received the Holy Ghost (Acts 2.4) if was almost impossible for me to do right, but know it is impossible for me to do wrong. With all due respect for Muhammad who they have as #1 but Muslims do not practice living a Holy life. We as the Pentecostal Apostolic faith teach and practice Holy living as Jesus instructed us to do because he is the only example of living a perfect life.

3Buddha
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.

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
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.
The one man who you can do with him what you please, but you can't hurt him without his permission. He was unbeatable in accomplishing his goals, and singlehandedly led a nation to independence, and without even touching a gun led the greatest revolution the world had ever seen.

36Socrates
Socrates (469-399 B.C. ) was a classical Greek philosopher who is credited with laying the fundamentals of modern Western philosophy. He is known for creating Socratic irony and the Socratic method (elenchus). He is best recognized for inventing the teaching practice of pedagogy, wherein a teacher questions a student in a manner that draws out the correct response. He has had a profound influence on Western philosophy, along with his students Plato and Aristole. Though much of Socrates' contribution is to the field of ethics, his input to the field of epistemology and logic is also noteworthy.

53Wedi Ustaz Yusuf Suleiman

54Aristotle
Founder of logic and champion to the human mind. Aristotle liberated the minds of man; he broke down the door of close-mindedness. This accomplishment was not immediate, but the seed was planted by just one statement.. "A is A". A is A because I am man. Because I am the judge of what I perceive. If you cannot believe what you perceive, then you can believe nothing, and your life is such. This may sound like a simple concept, and that is special because the notion didn't exist before Aristotle. All men were slaves in their minds. Shackled by pain and fear and guilt. Aristotle, with absolute wisdom and courage, annihilated the shackles.
This is just one small example of the greatness that Aristotle accomplished. There are so many more, and so many that have been lost through the years, that have come to be the very foundation of our lives.

A quote comes to mind that, to me, epitomizes Aristotle's legacy:

"Never have so many owed so much to so few. "
