The Top Ten

1 Muhammad 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.

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.

MY CHOICE OF THE GREATEST PERSON OF ALL TIME IS PROPHET MOUHAMMED(PBUH). AND HE ALSO IS THE LEADER OF ALL MUSLIMS. HIS LIFE IS VERY GOOD EXAMPLE FOR ALL OF US. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT HIM SO PLEASE STUDY ABOUT HIS LIFE I HOPE YOU WILL LIKE

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.

Weird how Muhammad and Jesus came ahead of Ambedkar so quickly. Is TTT finally beginning to disregard spam votes? - floral

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.

Friend, if you're an atheist then you believe that Jesus was killed by the roman government because he was a potential revolutionary, not for his people. Atheists believe that his death was not voluntary and it in no way protected or served his followers in any way besides give them a martyr.

He is the most perfect human who has ever touched this earth - -Pikachu-

4 Buddha 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 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.

We are blessed to have one such person and his given religion known to us.

Yes you are right Buddha or be ambedkar should be first. Well you wrote a thing which is a great boost people reading it. Thanks for writing

The Buddha spread teachings of Love, Enlightenment and Peace to tens then hundreds then millions after that. He suffered for years to find the Way to Enlightenment, and had great Compassion to all Beings and Saw the Way of All Things. - willdenman

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

The Man of the Century

It took one remarkable man to defeat the mighty British Empire and free a nation of 350 million people. His goal was freedom for India. His strategy was peace. His weapon was his humanity.

Gandhi is undisbutably the greatest living human of all time. He changed the world. Literally. Technology is superb, but Gandhi implemented a peaceful revolution that changed the way the population viewed the world. He gave an example of true freedom, a type of freedom that didn't need murder, killing, or even an offensive strategy. He valued true freedom (the freedom to accept the consequences of his actions), and life before anything else. He is a man that is worthy of anyone's respect.

Firstly I would correct the statement " man of century". He is the "man of the millennium". His life is a role model for everyone. We often mix " how to act" with the ideals and bring down the value of ideals but he pulled up "how to act" to the standards of ideals and then made a homogenous solution of it.

We should vote for real people rather than false and made up prophets

He was a great man who perfected many of the raw ideas that Newton came up with. Without him, we would probably have never gone to the moon in 1969, nor made such advances in technology.

I don't know why michael jackson is n he list. I mean he is great but there are far better and greater persons than him. Pop stars like him come and go. He wont be remembered for more than 300 years and that too at the mst. But einstien, gandhi, newton and various others will live for more than thousands of years. They are immortal. And this list is not god at all. It is a pretty ignorant one.

9 Mother Teresa Mother Teresa Mother Teresa also known as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta was a Roman Catholic religious sister and missionary. She was born on August 26th, 1910 and died September 5, 1997

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. She believed that service to poor is service to god. Thus she became the mother of country because of her love, care and kindness towards the people.

She was a remarkable woman. - walter34

We are hundred percent sure about her existence. Although Jesus Christ made a lot of hero- like accomplishment, he still might be legendary

12 Nelson Mandela Nelson Mandela Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.

This person came from being in prison for almost 30 years, and then became the president of South Africa. This person taught people that you must forgive to move on. HE has many more outstanding achievements, but overall, he should be in the top ten in my opinion.

Seriously letting him below chuck norris is a shame... He is the father of piece, love, forgiveness, dignity, equality and of course the father of Africa.

For me he suppose to be on top 10 list beacause of what he did for other the nations

This man was a terrorist who conducted a bombing campaign on the same level as Ted Kaczynski. He was imprisoned for the bombing camapign and the innocent people he killed. The man was a monster and is held up as some great person for quite literally no reason. SA has gone to the trash because of his actions, apartheid SA was better for everyone.

13 Hazrat 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.

Hazrat Ali is known by his justice between poor & rich he never differentiate between them when he was ruling he never take advantage if it he use eat dry bread & use to sit on jute carpet he was away from luxury of life due to his justice he suppose to be in top five

He is also 1st imam. Of shia. And father of imam hasan and Hussain. And the husband of fatima. a.s

14 Abraham Lincoln 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 through its Civil War - its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis .

He freed the slaves. Its one thing to fight for your self but to fight for others till your death is something greater.

Abraham Lincoln is a racist who hated black people. The reason he freed the slaves is because it was no longer profitable to America. That is what they do not tell you in the history books in school - JESUSISKING

The greatest humanitarian and selfless human being who happened to be President of the USA.

He is the one who has committed and has shown to, and has convinced the whole world that all men and women are created equal before God and have the same rights to live in this world which is created by the same God.

He is one of the only people who can be admired by everyone of every religion anywhere

15 Guru Nanak Guru Nanak

Guru Nanak's religion is very simple. See GOD IN EVERYONE. ALL ARE GOD CREATION WHO created Different religions and colors and animal and plant life. If all religions belief that nothing happens without God instructions and not even a leaf moves without his instructions then how can people on earth can claim that their religion is the only one for all mankind. God wants all type of religions and if he did not want different religions he could stop it as we all claim that God is all powerful. So he don't need mankind to force or entice humans to change their religions. Esp God don't want people to go around killing people in the name of religion because he is the creator and all belongs to him alone. Then who are we to change his creation. Are we and our thinking greater than GODS. Is God at fault for allowing all type of religions. God is one for all. No religion has monopoly on God. So live and let live. God told mankind to pray to him to thank him for all he has done for us to save ...more

He is the first guru of Sikhs. He has always taught that God is One. Many incidents of His life have proved that he was an Incarnation of God

GURU NANAK was the founder of Sikhism religion in which he insisted the equality of woman and man. though so many religions talk about equality of woman and man but in practical life they do not follow the same. In Islamic countries woman is not treated equally. - GSKOHLY

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. Guru is not only that who teaches in school but Guru is that who teaches us for lifetime and Sai Baba is one of the Great Guru (teacher). India has a culture to worship guru (teacher) and we worship Sai baba

Sai baba the simple man not the superstition every man need complete and help fully man world largest Support in sai baba that's really big god I love sai.

28 Isaac Newton 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.

Gravity , every action has an equal and opposite reaction. we would all be dumb without him. - ozzydog12

I'm pretty sure we could've figured it out with him, he just happened to get to it first. But he did find it first, so that counts for something, I'll give that to him. - EliHbk

Sir Isaac Newton is best known for discovering the law of gravity, creating the field of calculus, and finding out that white light is composed of many colors. He is also really known for inventing three standard laws of motion, referred to as "Newton's Laws". Who are those stupid people who think Bruce Lee has been more influental that Sir Isaac Newton? We are all Newtonians!

It is a disgrace to Sir Isaac Newton, not to give him the top position in this list. He is, in all sense, the greatest man ever to walk the Earth. Without him, we wouldn't even have had automobiles, let alone satellites, internet and other facilities of the 'modern world'. He made this 'modern world'.

The person who fought for the freedom of his country till last breath... !

Really he was historic freedom fighter

37 Karl Marx Karl Marx

Karl Marx invented socialism! He was one of the greatest philosopher of all time, maybe as great as Jesus! We can agree or disagree with his ideology, but we have to mind that he was one of the most influencial people in the history of humanity! He changed the world forever, his influence is visible even nowadays!

This is comment on the Reply.

Karl Marx actually existed. God and Jesus never did, they are a fabric of imagination. And people who do not have common sense to figure out the difference between Fiction and reality can not from sound opinions about anything! That is just my opinion

Karl Marx was more than just the creator of Communism, but a political philosopher, sociologist and scholar. Maybe in a Victorian manner, some finer details were looked over in his work, but ultimately he was an agent of change in the world, striving for equality and an end to monarchism and religious dogma and oppression. Not what I would call the greatest man in the world, but he is certainly the greatest on this list.

He is one of the finest brains born on earth and devoted is intelligence to the emancipation of mankind, unlike others, who exploit human beings. Once again, one day, people will realise that only his philosophy will help humankind and stop exploitation of man by man.

He envisaged decades ago the final destination of mankind, i.e., Socialism, which was proved in practice by Lenin through November revolution in 1917. He is even more relevant today when capitalism is mired in deep crisis & exploited humanity is waiting for the onward march of socialism.

39 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt Romney.

Part of the problem during all of Obama's presidency has been the lazy media in the U.S. there have gotten to be two sets of facts: the real facts and the Fox News, or conservative, twist on the facts. For example, There is still a size able portion of America that believes Obama was born in Kenya, even though he has produced a rock solid birth certificate from Hawaii. Meanwhile Ted Cruz, who WAS born in Canada, is allowed to run with no questions asked. Also, Donald Trump is saying the new Iran nuclear arms deal means Iran will get nuclear weapons, when the exact opposite is true. Republicans are referring to this as "Obama's deal" and our lazy media is going right along with them, even though there are six other countries involved. The media never mentions that England, France, Germany, Russia, China, and India are also on board to enforce this deal, as if having allies doesn't matter. There are the facts, and there are the Fox News facts, and the lame stream media treats them with ...more

You completely forgot about how Republicans have to deal with CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC and so on. All the Democrats have to deal with is FOX. - Datrandomdude

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but don't lie and say you voted for him. Of the eighteen people who approved the comment "voting for him was the worst mistake I ever made" I will bet at least 15 of you voted for Romney or didn't vote at all. If you're saying you regret voting for Obama, you're saying that Romney would have been better. Romney was a terrible candidate and would've been a much worse president. His own party realized this, and asked him to stay out of the race in 2016. With the racial hatred he's had to put up with, not to mention a hostile media and Congress, it's amazing he's got as much done as he has.

Greatest President who got as much done as any President has done for America. He is intelligent, generous, passion and accept all the ungrateful and racist criticize towards him. He had to continue the stupid war left behind from the previous president who did not know how to win beside leaving a big hole in deficit that would almost collapsed the whole America. He finally get rid of Osama Bin Ladin, that save US and almost terminated Al Quadae. He had improved the US healthcare that aimed to help the poor but the Insurance companies had tried everything to boycott in order to protect heir pocket that they made billion dollars every year. He unified all allies and avoided the war as much as possible. Using sanction and pressure against Putin, the most dangerous guy who want to invade into every country. So many things happen to the world (Greece deficit, Syria war) that affect our stock market, and of course he got blamed for not being able to lift our economy higher...Yeah right, ...more

You have to be KIDDING me.

40 Confucius 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.

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 ...more

44 Narendra Modi Narendra Modi Narendra Damodardas Modi is the 15th and current Prime Minister of India, in office since 26 May 2014.A leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Modi was the Chief Minister of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014 and is the Member of Parliament from Varanasi.

I feel proud that Modi is Indian. I have followed him for years. I know a long time. I believe he is the True right person to change India. India is where everything started thousands of years ago. Our history and culture is thousands of years old. How can the Creator not answer millions of people's prayers. I see Modi as our Reformer. Look at all the changes that he has already made. Clean up India is only the beginning. He understands the plight of the poor and destitute.

His attitude will really make him rich and our nation too.

I'm proud of you doing good job keep it up thanks

45 Charles Darwin Charles Darwin Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory.

Single best idea anybody ever had, in terms of both the explanatory power of the idea and being revolutionary in and of itself, is evolution by natural selection. The reason it stands tall in front of some of the greatest ideas in Physics is that people had no problem in deconstructing lifeless matter, but life was given a special status. Darwin unified matter and life.

The idea of life forms evolving had been around before Darwin, but he together with Wallace gave a coherent mechanism for evolution by means of natural selection. Darwin went on to put forth his second idea of evolution by sexual selection which also has tremendous explanatory power to explain animal behavior.

He predicted the birth of new scientific disciplines, being aware of the limitations of the disciplines at the time. Last chapters of "Origin" are a telling testament on how clearly he saw what was known and what ought to be known for pieces of his proposed mechanism to come together. As a ...more

He tried his hardest so his roommate came in and said “just give up you’ve tried a hundred times already” and Thomas said “exactly, that’s a hundred things we know won’t work so we are getting closer”. - Narutomaster5000

47 George Washington George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

I believe this statement to be absolutely true and more. He could have been Emperor. At the head of the army at the end of the war. Grabbing power as almost all had in that same position. Again and most importantly he stepped down from presidency at the end of his terms. setting the example that all have since followed. The stability and legitimacy that example gave to the office of president set the standard till today.

No government of the people, by the people, or for the people would have been possible without him. He could have opted for greater glory instead of resigning his command and returning to his farmm as just another citizen. Would any person have acted in that manner? There was no historical precedent for such an act. This was a seminal moment for the planet.

First president of USA

The wisest, most. selfless, greatest visionary of all our founding fathers. He is also our greatest American president. We have had more than a few. He is my favorite, followed by Lincoln and Reagan.

1400 years ago this lady taught the Muslim women of the world to stand up against injustice. The world needs to see how this grand daughter of the Prophet Mohammad taught Muslim women to stand up for themselves. Much contrary to how the world holds Islam responsible for injustice against women... Prophet Mohammad and his family stood up for rights of women. However Muslims of today ignore what the Prophet and his family; daughter and grand daughters taught and Muslims of today degrade women.

This lady save this Islam..

The great survivor and leader of Islam.

49 Guru Tegh Bahadur

You may have seen the people sacrifice their money, time for their own family, community, religion. Maybe few of them sacrifice their life. There was only & only one was Shri Guru Teg Bahadar ji who sacrifice his life for someone other's religion & who walked toward Delhi. What a great example.

He sacrificed his life and family for the people who betrayed his son later on... He did it for humanity... There is nothing bigger then that!

He gave his life to save other religion, Hindu and today India is not Islamic state because of the sacrifice of Guru Teg Bahadur ji

Really a great guru of who sacrificed his live for saving not own religion but saved Hindu religion.

He is the greatest philosopher of all time. Even when his unfair death was coming as a command from the court of iliea and he could get out of the prison he stayed suporting his life-opinion that everyone must do what the rules say even if that is unfair.

Purest thinker that was ever lived. His death, amongst the first examples in history of the good being killed by those who were afraid of his greatness.

The best philosopher of all time. In my opinio it's unfair for him to be in this place. Greece always had people with very good mind.

A PHILOSOPHER WITH COMMON REASONING
