The Top Ten

Prophet Mohammed
He is the last prophet allah has sent to earth he is the greatest person to walk this earth the greatest leader in his years he conquered the world fairly and while he ruled he ruled fairly he is my role model and should be a role model for everyone
I like Prophet Mohammed not because of he was the last messenger sent by Allah. I like/love him for his work for Islam and spreading message of Allah the true created of this world. And restricted us to stop worshipping stone god made by ourselves. He taught us way of living and give message of brotherhood, love, and peace. His every action is a message for humanity.
Yes. You are right. He is most misunderstood due to media hype. Every individual should study his life for right perception.
His enemies who did not accept his message and yet they trust him with their deposit, that he would give it back to them when asked. He was asked by Pagans Arabs to give up on message of Islam in return would make him the richest man in Mecca but he replied them, even if the offer is the sun on the right hand side and moon on the left hand he would not give up the message of Islam.

In New Testament he is recognized as The Spirit of the Truth and Old Testament he is recognized like one who would have characteristic of Moses.

Moses received the word of God at Mount Sinai, Mohamed received at Mount Era. Moses fled motherland, so did Mohamed. Moses won over his enemy and so did Mohamed. Moses married and had children and so did Mohamed. Moses was leader, warrior and statesman with authority and so was Mohamed. Moses had natural birth and death and so did Mohamed and many more similarities in them.
Every Muslim should be accept our nabi sunna. After that allah will protect us.
[Newest]He is the greatest of all Prophets and the last prophet.

The greatest king ever
Greatest king ever, I can just say... Real life "300" leader period.

Shivaji Maharaja is greatest king and ruler ever. He was knowing pulse of all people in his Kingdom. He never allowed any Wrong things during his ruling. He has always respected even his enemies. He has always respected women and children irrespective of any cast and creed. One of the best example of for this is when he has attack Sur at city one of the English women along with her child was alone in her home and very frightened because of the attack. A shivaji has asked his worriers to be around that home to protect them.

He is the Greatest Human to ever born..
Not to compare Buddha with any other being.

He never killed anyone. He even converted a Angulimala (a Bandit)
Who killed 999 peoples. Can you Imagine a person who killed 999 people got surrendered into the feet of Lord Buddha (Blessed one). So think of the
Moment when the Angulimala would have been surrendering under him..

His teachings spread peacefully unlike others like Muhammad.

He is perfect combination of Both Mind and Body that the world has ever produced.

Victory to Buddha... Victory to Buddhism.
Buddha taught us non violence, peace and love for all the creatures in the universe. He said a man who is born has to die one day. He did not believed in miracles and superstition. He taught us the scientific way of living.

5Jesus Christ
One day Satan and Jesus were having a conversation.
Satan had just left the Garden of Eden, and was mocking and laughing
Saying:If Lord. Just seize the world full of people down there. They set a trap, used bait I knew they could not resist.
They fell all! What you do with them? Jesus asked.
Ah, I'm gonna have fun with them. Answered
Satan. Them teach how to marry and divorce, how to hate and
Abusing each other, to drink and smoking and of course, I will teach to invent guns and bombs to
Destroy each other. I really going to have fun! What will you do when you get tired of them? Jesus asked. Ah, the kill. Satan said with eyes full of hatred and pride. How much you want for them? Jesus asked.
Ah, you do not want those people. They do not
Are good. Why would you want to take. You take them and they hate you.
Spit your face, curse you and kill you. You do not want those people!
How much? Jesus asked again. Satan looked at Jesus and said sarcastically:
All your blood, your tears and your life.
Jesus said:
I am happy to read that jesus is accepted as a man and not god... Yes he is a prophet and messenger of allah, like that of moses and muhammed...
This man, whether you believe him divine or not, was without a doubt the most legendary man of all time.
Well I'm not going to say he's the most legendary man of all time if I don't believe in him am i
I'm atheist, but still, dying for your people is pretty awesome in my book.

She was a remarkable woman.


We are hundred percent sure about her existence. Although Jesus Christ made a lot of hero- like accomplishment, he still might be legendary
She is a great lady who is very kind towards poor. She serves the society as it is her family. We should learn more from her. She is my inspiration always.

I'm strong believer of Sai and whatever I have heard of him simply unbelievable.

Despite of strong resistance from society, he kept mentoring persons who really were in need. He did not differentiated between poor or rich, did not believed in casteism.

To him there was only one god and he tried to spread this message to everyone who approached him.
Sai baba teaches the way of life. We should not live only for ourself but we should also live for others. He was a great human so we Indian believe that he is our guru (teacher) and that is true.

21Hazrat Ali
Hazrat Ali (A.S. ) was a multi talented personality. He could wield a sword as effortlessly as a pen. In prayer he used to tremble in presence of God and in battlefield he was a fearless lion. No one could match him in eloquence. In charity he was foremost. As a ruler he used to reach to the weakest of the weak and as a judge he used to punish the most powerful wrongdoer. When he was dying from the wound of his assassin he noticed the hand of the assassin was tied tightly and he was hurt. He asked his son to loosen the ropes. Where can you find such a noble forgiving soul. Next to prophet Muhammad (saws) he is the greatest human who ever lived.
The person who was the example of how a Muhammad's follower should be. His wisdom has no parallel.

He creted the platform for modern day music, dance and idolism-which EVERY artist and entertainer now aspires to have. He did this well before he was 30 years old!

Confucius and Lao tzu are the greatest saints in Chinese history, their thought influenced the whole China, Asia, and even the world for thousands years. Perhaps because of the thinking of Confucius is engaging in politics, the thinking of Lao tzu is away from politics, Confucius more famous than Lao tzu.
Confucius teach Chinese the social Dharma, the relationship between monarch and subject, parents and son, master and student, husband and wife, etc. Abide by the Dharma, the society is a stable and harmonious society, otherwise, it will be a chaotic society. He teach Chinese people what is benevolent, loyalty, formality, wisdom and integrity, Chinse called ren-yi-li-zhi-xin. The later dynasty, because of respecting the thoughts of Confucius, became prosperity and powerful, that is The han dynasty in China, and his thinking is exalted for thousands of years. At chinse he is the the greatest saint in China.
All the prophet Mohammed, Jesus Christ, Buddha, Confucius, etc. are incarnations, they doesn't care about who first, who is the second. It's just a mind game. If must choose who is the first, maybe Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (Nirmala Srivastava) should be the first, because she is the incarnation who is give realization to humanity. She is at the sahastrara chakra, a integrate chakra, who is at the top of our head, who is at the highest position.

57Nikola Tesla
A man I view as a true Genius A man who thought so far and moved so far in such a short time it's hard to ignore his achievements. He created the system of Power we use to this day and created inventions far ahead of his time. He Had dreams of Improving the world Profits be damned. Of course his plans for world improvement for all made investors leave making his visions of free energy for all people to be forgotten. The World Is truly duller with his loss.


Edison and others stoled a lot of his ideas. He was a great scientist!
Come on, who has so much ignorance and put Bill Gates and many others over Nikola Tesla! That is insane! Nikola Tesla must be in top 10! He has invented the radio (yes, Nikola Tesla, not Guglielmo Marconi! ), alternating current, wireless current transmission if the wealthy people where not the same as they are now, we would have long time ago free energy! FREE ENERGY! The idea of electric cars = Nikola Tesla! Please, research a little more about him, there are lot of things to learn about him, and all the stuff what he has done. And he has done LOOT of them! LOT! I can not emphasis that enough!

In 1985 Great Britain honoured him posthumously by unveiling a plaque in London as a tribute to patrotism at India House - the place from where he directed an armed revolution against the empire..

He fought a holy war exclusively for the sake of saving Islam from the hordes against humanity, for which he had to lay down his own life and that of his kith and kin with friends and his chosen few who also fought bravely and laid down their lives for the cause of Islam.
He proves to the world
IMAM HUSSAIN A. S gave everything he had, including his life, for the greater good and for the benefit of those around him, and his epic legacy continues to inspire millions across the world on a daily basis.

Hussain ibn Ali was born in 620 AD to a family famed for their values of equality, love and peace. Raised by his grandfather Muhammad (the last prophet of Islam), Hussain was known for his integrity, generosity of spirit and blindness to colour and social class. It was for this reason that people flocked to him and his family.

1 think he should be dropped from the list of the greats.
He came into office with promises of reform and change. He will leave the office leaving the country in a far worst state than how he got it. Voting for him was the worst mistake I ever made.
Yes, he is one of the greatest people on earth! He is the 3rd African American President of the United States (the first 2 were killed within days of taking office) and has had a terrible time dealing with post Civil Rights Movement racism. He has worked diligently with leaders of other countries to bring peace and unity among all people. His desire to establish Ted Kennedy Health Care Reform has been a battle up hill/and down hill with the Republicans for decades, yet both of them have made some major steps in establishing healthcare for everyone. If only the negative people would stop and think about what has been achieved and what hasn't been achieve on the behalf of all Americans, we all will have a happier country. President Barack Obama has done more for the common people than any other President of the United States of America. It's the negative thinking SAWP that keep the BS going, and continue to BLOCK progress.

The world needs to see how this grand daughter of the Prophet Mohammad taught Muslim women to stand up for themselves.

However Muslims of today ignore what the Prophet and his family; daughter and grand daughters taught and Muslims of today degrade women.

You have listed Ravidas on 77 Number. He was the greatest saint among all other saint of his time. so I think you have no sufficient knowledge about him.

But at number 1 You choose a Right person Dr B R Ambedkar, he deserves to this rank.

Saint Asaram has been reforming lives of millions of people in India and abroad for last 50 years through his spiritual discourses, social services, meditation camps, special programs for children, poor and other weaker sections of society. His selfless contribution society, country and world at large is immeasurable. Such high level saints appear on earth once in ages. World should recognize to derive the fullest benefit of blessings of such saint which is continuously flowing. Instead, the selfish world has framed him under false charges. We hanged Jesus to death, only to worship him later. Likewise many slants under various religions have been defamed by vested interests for ages. But, truth prevails, righteousness is still prevailing in world because of contribution of saints like Saint Asaram. He is undoubtedly the Number person for me.

95Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu
Hinduism, lets you do whatever you want, you can follow ideas from any other religion. In Hinduism you are not restricted from doing anything. You may worship a idol or you may not, it all depends on what helps you get inner peace. Hinduism does not enforce any thing on you, according to our religion you may do as you wish. Hindus may believe in the words of Jesus and Mohammad along with the words of Rama, Krishna and Buddha. Our religion originated around the time of the ancient Egyptian and Greek religions and still survives till this day, despite the 1000 years of Islamic rule and 200 years of Christian rule.
