Top Ten Greatest Men

The Top Ten

1 Muhammad Muhammad (570 AD - 632 AD) was an Arabian Prophet, best known as the central figure (and last prophet) of the Abrahamic religion of Islam and is amongst the most revered and important historical figures in the world.

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 are 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 ...more

I seriously don't get how so many people are as deceived to think that Muhammad is a greater person than Jesus Christ! Actually, I can believe it. I mean, Jesus said Himself that many will come to you in sheep's clothing, while inwardly they are ravenous wolves. Muhammad is one of the ravenous wolves of all time, let alone greatest person of all time!

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.

There's so much that could be said about this amazing man, none of which I can properly and eloquently describe. The prophet Muhammad's life was the hardest life that anyone will ever endure, a life which no one but him could bear to live. As a child, he lost both his parents and witnessed the terrible ways the people around him lived their lives. He saw his enemy wrip the body of his uncle and chew his internal organs. He, most beloved to God, could've wished ill on his enemies who constantly pursued him. He, who was the last messenger of God could've changed the message he was trusted with to exalt himself and make his life easier, guarantee his safety. What did he do? Anyone who is honest with themselves would know that not only is Muhammad the best of our kind but the last prophet of God. Please, for the sake of the tears he shed, the comforts he gave up for you, honor him and stop telling lies. This selfless man deserves our respect. Those who lie about him will rot in hell ...more

2 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). ...read more.

Well, there's no words to describe him but for a short summary HE IS GOD I mean he claimed it with million ways and is still claiming till this day if you don't believe me ask God tell him I wanna know u (but say it with all of your heart) and don't be afraid you won't lose anything he will be glad showing himself to you, I mean I will tell you something there's no one in the universe Greater than God so when he becomes a human then he is the greatest one in the existence if you said anything other than that then you probably suffer from something in your brain. Jesus himself said "Which of you can convict me of sin" that means that he's perfect while Muhammad will never ever dare to say such a thing, how on Earth are you comparing God to a normal human. JESUS is the Greatest we don't need any some kind of votings to proof it it's already extremely visible. I love you JESUS my GOD

He was, still is and still will be the greatest than anyone who has set foot on this earth... Of course he is way greater than this man named Muhammad. Jesus cannot be compared anywhere near to this sinner. Jesus is way more holy and his life is dedicated to all the humans in this world, to stop wasting your life in worldly pleasures and live your life with divine and loyalty to serve the God of creations...

I'm a christian so its obvious why I picked Jesus, but if you are not christian, there are still plenty of reasons why Jesus should be number 1. First off, Muhammad may have been the profit/creator of Islam; one of the most practiced religions in the world. While Jesus is considered to be not only the creator, but the God of Christianity. Muhammad is not considered a god. Also the fact that Jesus created a huge controversy during his time. Because it was such a huge deal, people are still talking about it 2,000 years later.
In European history, Jesus also had a profound impact. There wouldn't have been a christian Europe.
What about the crusades. Well, if there was no Jesus, there wouldn't be any reason for the Europeans to try and recapture Jerusalem.
How is it that everyone, even atheists know the stories in the bible?
How is it that Christ has influence on pop culture today? Where is Islam in American pop culture?
Its all Jesus. Even if you don't believe that Jesus ...more

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!

To respond to the other guy, unlike Percy Jackson or a character made by Rick Riordan or Homer, Jesus is 100% God, and 100% Man, so he can easily qualify for the poll.

3 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

He believed in God and trusted in him that is something many people don't know. He freed our country from slavery and oppression.

"I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race" Abraham Lincoln, 1858

"no arab is better than a non-arab, nor a non-arab better than an arab... , except in god consciousness" Prophet Muhammed (s.A. S), 63

Slaves are banned because of this great man. No knowing what Americans could be without Abraham Lincoln. All slavery could vanish if not for John. Hail him.

He fought against slavery when no one had the guts to, he should be way ahead of adolf hitler, he is good and hitler is an icon of fear across the world

4 Saint Paul Paul the Apostle, commonly known as Saint Paul, and also known by his native name Saul of Tarsus was an apostle who taught the gospel of the Christ to the 1st-century world.

I think St Paul is greater than the Prophet Muhammed of Islam... I was Islam lover untill reading the koran and hadith... what I learned is muhammed died as a self praiser, murderer, rapist, curser and forcefull converter... St paul was a murderer untill knowing christ... after that his life changed and repented about his past always... considered himself below all apostles and he was a decent man...

To the person talking sht about prophet Mohammad u know nothing and your ignorant where the fk u got your info a cornflakes box? Where the fk u read Mohamad was rapist who said so anyone knows where this dude got his info? 1 prophet mohamad indured so much through his life your winey lil ass can't handle a 2 perc this man created a whole new world this man made peace throughba lot of countries this man stopped the worshipping of material at his time. And u come here to say a priest was great... by the way u can't read a kuran or shariah cause it's tough language and it can't be read in english it will misinterpret a lot.

He lived and died for believing in God and trusting Jesus. He was truly a great and honorable man.

He was a liar and deceived and lied about the appearance of Jesus!

5 Buddha Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply the Buddha, after the title of Buddha, was an ascetic and sage, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.

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.

Namo Buddhay. He never taught to hate other religions. He ruled the world without war, without forcibly imposing religion on others. He always lived like a common man. Unlike other religions, the Buddha does not believe in who is the doer. Buddha was a unique man. The Buddha has given a straightforward way of life.

He was the best mentor for all the people. He let all the people around the world adhere and practice his remarkable and valuable teachings and realistic practices, regardless of race and religion. He contributed a lot for all the people to be able to access to Dharma and the correct way of life like having compassion each other to forgive the people without revenge which lead to ruin lives.

He was the man of peace. We all should follow his teachings and meditation to become a productive and good souls. He taught the world that humanity is the biggest religion and we as humans are all equal and would live in peace as well as we should help each other to live in harmony.

6 Isaac Newton Sir Isaac Newton PRS was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution.

Not many people like to realize it now, but Newton was a devout Christian writing books on the interpretation of the Bible and the last times. He is mostly known for finding the laws of inertia and gravity. Newton was one of the greatest scientific minds in history if not the greatest.

Yeah, true, but to say he's greater than Jesus is just ridiculous beyond reason.

He is the one of the most prominent person in the world,who simplify all the hidden truth of nature and teach us how to think in terms of mathematics and equations.

He was "THE MAN" and greatest of all who have ever lived on this planet earth. He was the "Son of God". He should be number one above all.
Hats off Sir Issac. We need a you on earth to move the world 500 years ahead.

Not a single scientist is important then any other. They all played their part. They took the work further from where it was left. If writing was not invented at newton's time. Then...

7 Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science.

I think that Albert Einstein was great in the ways he thought about the world. He was vegetarian for most of his life and from reading about him, he seems to be a kind person. And I love his quote that says that creativity is greater than knowledge. P. S. why is Darwin not on this list.

He was a theoretical physicist. His many contributions to physics include the special and general theories of relativity, the founding of relativistic cosmology, the first post-Newtonian expansion.

How does just being smart make you a great person? Great is a combination of genius and using it for good, which, in my opinion, isn't what Einstein really did.

Intelectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them. This was the level of his thinking, his contribution to physics is unmatchable he is my role model and should be of every physicist

Actually contributed to something, other than most on this list. Discovered most of modern physics and ushered in the age of information.

8 B. R. Ambedkar Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956), popularly known as Babasaheb or B. R. Ambedkar, was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards Untouchables (Dalits), while also ...read more.

Greatest person in the world. Who can believe that Muhammad and jesus are the greatest without any written autobiography by themselves. I don't want to hurt Islamic and Christian's feelings. I respect both the religions. I know Muhammad and Jesus were the most influential people but if they would've wrote the autobiography, we would know them better. Dr. BR Ambedkar was from a poor family and from a lower caste. Though he didn't got place in the class due to his caste, he studied from the window of the classroom. One of the teachers supported him due to which he could study. He just got India free from the cruel caste system. He was the Head of the Drafting Committee (the Committee that made the constitution of the free India). Actually he was greater than Mahatma Gandhi. But no one knows about him, we need to know about the greatest man (if not in the world then in india). Jay Hind. Vande Mataram.

This great power not only did the things for which he is known. Apart from all those things, he changed the entire worst and sinful life in India by giving rights to the dalits to live, which was impossible for any other to do.
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.
He was a boddhisatva. He gave at true definition of great thought lord BUDDHA which has become hidden. He is unbeatable by any other. He is number
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".

The man who brought out 75% peoples from the darkness of unequality, untouchability. 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. Ambedkar became god for them they write constitution of india and gave special rights in the constitution for these peoples so that they get every right which is necessary for every human being. AAmbedkar ji gave them the right of Equality.

9 Moses

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.

He was a man of true leadership, patience, and faith. One of the greatest leaders in all history. He brought the Israelites out of their slavery they were in for 400 years in Egypt.

Our Holy teacher
Our Love our leader
Our best companion should be on second number after Yehshua Messiah
because He is a person on whom nobody can not criticize.
Love you Moses.

"His palate is sweet, and he is altogether desirable; this is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem." --- Shir Hashirim 5:16

Although I don't agree with many of his policies, if any at all, I still think every President of the United States- from Washington to Trump and everyone in between- deserves at least every American's respect.

He is good personality as well as leader

Was a great president

11 Lord Krishna

Muhammad is not the best in world. Lord Krishna is the best in world.

Lord Krishna was born to establish dharma, he worked a lot to give women a better position in the society. He boycotted many ill-practices which were followed. He could guide anyone to greatness with the right path. He had immense power but never posted about it or used for his own privilege.

Jai Shree Krishna

I think it should be at the top because lord krishna gave bramh gyan to Arjun every thing was told by the Lord krishna to Arjun it is in the holy book bhagwat geeta everything explained in this book how to become a good person how to get heaven or hell everything explain by lord krishna I think every human have to read bhagwat geeta because it is the true source of knowledge...

Lord Krishna was the one to speak the golden knowledge of Bhagwat Geeta. His work for humanity had changed the life and gave life a motive. He opposed the evil powers of his time and made truth and honesty reign the world.

12 Guru Nanak Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus. His birth is celebrated worldwide as Guru Nanak Gurpurab on Kartik Pooranmashi, the full-moon day in the month of Katak, October–November.

Guru Nanak dev said I'm messenger of the God. There's only one God and rest of the messanger. He never told the people I'm the God. He always teach the good things to the people. He traveled all his life to teach the good things. I can't explain what he did for the world especially when he came to the earth there was literacy.

Guru Nanak Dev never tried to impose himself upon people. He always taught that God is One. Ek Omkar, He taught us to ask for Blessings for all @ Sarbat Da Bhala

The birth of Guru Nanak Dev ji lead to a revolution amongst society, human behaviour and spirituality. Not only was Guru Nanak a social reformer but a rebel within the realms Naam. From beggars to Kings, the message of equality, honest living and sharing with others was emancipated. Can you name any social construct of society which provides free food to every single person, regardless of caste, creed and colour? The concept of langar is simply revolutionary.

Guru ji of Humanity, Guru ji of Hindus & Muslims, Guru ji of us all

A Great Saint

Guru ji Started concept of langar / Common Kitchen

Ik Onkar ( God is one)
Satnam Waheguru ji

13 Confucius Confucius was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history. He is the founder of the religion with the same name as him. Confucius believed he was doing the Will of Ti'en (God or 'Heaven') by preaching ethics.

The founder of modern Chinese civilization and author of the Analects. Confucian ideals such as respect for elders, education, and loyalty to family continue to influence East Asia to this day.

Wow. Why this great thinker is so down in the list. Maybe he is not popular enough or maybe people are ignorant or maybe this site doesn't work in China

If a man falls asleep with itchy arse, he wake with smelly finger.

Confucius should be literally ranked with Lao Tzi

14 Karl Marx Karl Marx was a German philosopher, economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, journalist and revolutionary socialist. Born in Trier to a middle-class family, Marx studied law and Hegelian philosophy.

One of the greatest thinkers ever lived. He discovered the laws of social development, described the mechanisms of functioning of capitalism.

He had some good ideas, but due to the human condition, we are incapable of putting his ideas into action.

For all his flawed social theories, he was still the greatest economist in History.

Not much of a Communist.

But all other economists sit in his shadow.

15 Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a former Indian cricketer and captain, widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.

I LOVE sir YOU ate A crickter and my dreams is I wanna be A gret crickter in the univers because cricket is my passion And any one break my passion I am very angry on this people And I will get very hardwork

TRUMP 2020. In the few years President Trump has been in office he had broken the Us' economy records multiple times, brought hundreds of thousands of jobs back for Americans, strengthened the US military to be the truly most powerful and the world, and lowered the women, Afro-American, Asian and male non-employment rate to the
lowest in history. He has decreased illegal border crossings by 30-40% and the deaths from drugs in the USA decreased by 5% for the first time in 2019 after it had been rising for 25 years without stopping. God bless Trump.

He is Saddam Hussein all over again. Gassing your own people while hiding in a bunker inside your private palace seems quite similar to what Saddam did

Because we are better off today then we were 3.5 yrs. ago...& Hilary & the Clinton's were reeking havoc on our country...30 yrs. in government & name me just 3 things she did. I have traveled all over the world & the good ole' USA is "back in business". We are respected again.

This man is not the devil nor is he a god, he is a human. Humans are not perfect, he has indeed made mistakes and he hasn't done anything actually vile.

Best President in modern times, easily. Only those who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome think otherwise.

17 Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

A man who was completely innocent offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act. He was no great warrior, scientist, king, prophet or philosopher. A man who changed world by his sheer will. He knew world is full of suffering and grudge, hatred and selfishness will only divide the world. He was hated by few people in his own country and was killed by one of his countrymen. But by next century when people will be more interconnected economically, culturally and intellectually then people will realize he was pioneer who won hearts of his people and enemies. Salute to Greatest Man ever.

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

People do not understand Mahatma Gandhi. A person who can unite such a populous countries divided into hundreds of barriers is surely not human. Think about it, how can a person who was an Indian be "worshipped" in a foreign country? Barack obama, Martin luther, Nelson Mandela. Please respect him, read about him. He is something who is idolised by the whole world. He is so underrated. at least I consider myself to be one of the luckiest in the 6 billion people that I have been born in the same nation in which a MAHA-ATMA was born.

Man of peace. As I heard before "I see Islam without Muslims" this saying is present this man somhow because he believed in peace as Islam do.

21 Ronald Reagan Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004) was an American politician and actor who was 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 . Prior to his presidency, he was the 33rd Governor of California from 1967 to 1975, following a career as a Hollywood actor and union leader until his death in 2004

Reagan was a truly good man, a good president... If we had stuck with trickle down economics... Instead of moving our best companies to foreign lands we would not be crashing economically. Obama is the worst president! Not because of race because of lack of integrity and moral values. And he's a liar!

Regan and his trickle down economics were the beginning of the end of the middle class in America.

Totally agree. Ignored Aids, thought ketchup was a vegetable and that trees caused pollution. What a sham!

And Osama Bin Laden is above him. Good grief. Ronald Reagan is one of the best presidents of all time.

Our greatest president of our time.

Got into freedom struggle during teenage. Got hanged during twenties. He's the symbol of youth idealists.
