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 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 ...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..

Muhammad has no power to take you to Heaven, even Muhammad agrees with that. Jesus is the only way to Heaven!

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, guranteed 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.

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.

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

He is My number one, actually He Is My life and soul, He save My and Everyone's life even all of Us really fully understand what He Give too Us the worth of His sacrifice, no one one is really can appreciate that fully, but that's what makes Him so beyond infinitely perfect, even You don't know him, to all his doings and yet You denied him? Imagine that You did something very special to a person You know, and that person just ignored it You will be mad and very sad right or You might not love Him/her or it anymore. But too Him to all ignorance He still love Us, He even died for Us to prove it, imagine dying for person who doesn't like You? Can You do it? Be realistic no one can, even I, I can't. But Him, Jesus sacrifice Himself to prove of His love because 1. He is God. He doesn't belong on this top ten list, if ever He is even a human, He is over qualified for this things there will be number 1 to 10, it will be just him, for all His amazing doings, and yet His only request is to ...more

3 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.

Newton is the best scientists his best low gravity very famous in the world

One of the founders of modern physics and mathematical analysis, had a huge influence on the development of science.

Because they first follow rules before saying other person

4 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.

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.

I'm not a native English speaker, so please understand possible mistake on my sentences. thanks. Buddha teaches human beings to how to live right way the better way-that doesn't only mean faith for Buddha, it means the right and better way of life what humans can suffer from it. Buddhism teaches not only faith, Buddhism teaches what is right way to live. Buddhism acknowledge the pain of life, joy of life, life is meaningful, and got the answer of all humankind's wonder:what's the right and best way to live? The answer is Noble Eightfold Path, and vipasana and samatha, and if I know better about Buddhism, I would confidentially tell you what Buddhism teach, but let me tell you this. My knowledge about Buddhism is not enough to teach other people 'what is Buddhism means and teach? ' but my life is far better and going to the light because I study Buddhism this much. but I suggest do not assume what Buddhism is and that like in a bad way, do not lie to yourself about Buddhism. if you ...more

5 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...

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

He is my model in many ways

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

Can You compare the god and its powers of different religious, don't play with any religion by doing such mischief, else it can be a big problem for you all.

Why r you r playing with emotions of peoples. God is same but names r differ and you fool people r comparing god with normal people. How you compAre lord krishna with modi although modi ji pray for lord krishna daily

He is like a god to us. And put him in 54th place there is no place for any god in this list beacause god created us and now we compare them who is the best god or great people. There is just one thing I have to mention is that god is everything. Please stop by giving their names in this type of list.

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.

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.
