1 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.

Here are the Majd-Allah views on Jesus Christ. The greatest human being to ever exist. The one who lived as a jew over 2000 years ago. He died for our sins and was resurrected and ascended. He took the punishment from us. He was suceeded by the holy spirit and the prophet Muhammad. Jesus Christ, The Bible, The Quran and The Prophets is what we focus on.

Being the son of god is an achievement in and of itself. It's even more amazing with the fact he got his own religion (albeit he's just the son) & the ability to heal the sick, but that's likely because of his good will & kindness to all. But if you are Christian or have watched The Passion of the Christ, you know just how much he suffered to save us all. So he's also the greatest thing to have ever lived.

As a Christian, I must say that I love that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. We're all sinners, but we can be forgiven of them. If you have Jesus in your heart, you can get to Heaven when you die, an amazing place where there is no pain or sadness, and we'll be there forever.

Jesus is the most Famous figure for a reason: His father is the creator of the world, he does miracles, and all the others have sinned at least once, but Jesus has never, in his lifetime, sinned. Pray.

2 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.

I have my own religion called Majd-Allah and here are our views on the Buddha. He was a great prince. When he was said to have achieved enlightenment, Abrahamists (Followers of Majd-Allah) believe that he didn't but thought he did. Even though he followed a different religion other than the Abrahamic faiths, he was still a good man. He surely will go to Heaven (Jannah) in the day of the Lord

A true saint, and truly peaceful.

Either him, Muhammad or Jesus should be at the #1 spot, not a rapist who is at this time of writing, imprisoned until 2037!

He gave scientific religion to the world.

Love your kindness

3 Moses

He was a great leader but his people are the ones who disobeyed God

4 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.

Here are the Majd-Allah views on Muhammad. He was the seal of the prophets and the messenger of God. He was christian man whom the angel Gabriel revealed the Quran to. When it says that God hasn't begotten anyone, it actually means that he didn't reproduce Jesus and it has a different meaning. Jesus Christ, The Bible, The Quran and The Prophets is what we focus on.

In Catholicism, they believe that Muhammad is a false prophet but even if that is true, you should still respect the religion.

He proved to be a successful leader, warrior, religious leader and in every field of life, he is an embodiment.

When you read abiut you. You will see how his gentl and cute and great teacher. Father.boss. Hasband. His the perfect person have ever live in this planet and you will see that. I advice everyone looking for peace to read about it and follow it

5 Abraham Abraham, originally Abram, is the first of the three biblical patriarchs. His story, told in chapters 11 through 25 of the Book of Genesis, plays a prominent role as an example of faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. According to the bible, God called upon him and told him 'through your son, Isaac, ...read more.

Luckys, we all do bad stuff sometimes. Abraham wasn't perfect, he wasn't God. So do you expect him to be perfect and always do good?

Hugely important in Judaism, Christianity and Islam

He almost killed his son to see his faith

He did some bad stuff, but he's a good guy.

17 Guru Gobind Singh Guru Gobind Singh; born Gobind Rai, was the 10th Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher.

Guru Gobind Singh was a great religious leader of Sikh faith who defended his Sikh faith from the Mogul emperors who invaded India and wanted to rule and covert everyone to Islam. He spent a great number of years meditating in silence in the Himalayas and then cleared his vision about the way forward to defend Sikhs from oppression. He sacrificed all his 4 sons who were murdered by the Moghuls but did not flinch in his mission. He taught Sikhs to pray but also fight if they had to in defence of their faith. He created the Khalsa, the subsequent Image of the Sikhs to this day. He deserves to be revered and placed in the top ten.

He is the greatest sacrificing Guru.

He is the master of about 21 arts

Because he is our guru

18 Augustine of Hippo

20 St. Thomas Aquinas
21 Ed Young
22 Laozi
23 Zoroaster

Dude, Stole his teachings! the whole point of the prophets is that each one completes the last prophets teachings and religion; with this philosophy then everyone stole Adams religion :|

One of the greatest humans in history, sadly all religions after him stole his teachings and sold them off as their own.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam follow his philosophy, he should be number 1

24 Joan of Arc Joan of Arc, nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans", is considered a heroine of France for her role during the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years' War, and was canonized as a Roman Catholic saint. ...read more.

Why do so many people think she's Noah's wife? I read in high school that half of America thinks that. I mean for one, it's not Noah's "Arc," it's "Noah's Ark. Also, I'm pretty sure she was Greek (and I think she was Pagan, although I'm not sure about that one.)

25 St. Joseph

If Mary is on this list why isn't Joseph
