Top 10 Most Peaceful People In History

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.

Muhammad Peace be upon him is the most kindest and soft hearted person in the world because when HE was born in Arab the Arabian buried their own daughters alive after birth. Muhammad Peace be upon him erased this system and gave women their rights, He erased the difference between Rich and poor, Black and white, Master and slave, upper cast and lower cast.
Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the most kindest, peaceful, beautiful hearted, in the whole wide world. He was even the first human that said every people are equal. he said that every one is the same. He said to never bully someone or hurt anyone's feelings. He did much more of these kind things. He also went through a lot of challenges but succeeded. I love him so much.

Mohammed (PBUH) the greatest prophet of Allah/god

I love him he's always peaceful loving and respectful. Even those who do bad to him he will never seek revenge he also never gets mad often you can compare 1.6 billion peoples life to his but will never even be 10 %close Once you meet him you will never want to keep your hands off him.
He is nearly perfect

he sacrificed for all even the enemies

barely will get mad

It is he that lost everything in his life his family his wife his friends everything was taken from him.

There are lies about him every single person who says bad about will be upon hell.

please every single one of you who is reading please do not try to compare your life to his.

nobody will be like him.

May peace be upon him and you god bless you.

Peace is never achieved without a little struggle at first. The notion that a peaceful person will go live a life of a hermit is bizarre. I'd rank Muhammad at 1 because he achieved a peaceful society in world full of crap. Second in line is Jesus just because of his message but he couldn't implement it. Buddha comes third but again he wasn't able to form a peaceful society in his life.

What! Why he's in third ranking? According to me, he is the first most best person in the world. Not only according to me, the whole Muslim community and even some Japanese Shinto, Christian and Jewish communities also ranks him the best. He was the most honest, truthful, peaceful, helpful, kind, forgiving, justice-doing, well-behaving, well-mannered, friendly, patriotic and problem solving person. Even a animal also used to like him because of his good qualities.

In his lifetime, he never told a lie. He used to do his work with honesty. He never fought with anyone. Even if anyone behaved bad with him, he still used to behave good with him. He used to respect the elders and love the youngest. He used to help the poor and helpless. He used to remain hungry himself by feeding another hungry guy or animal. He also used to do proper justice. He never differentiated between gender, status, rationality, ethnicity, religions, nationality and physical capability. He was known as ...more

2 Jesus 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.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life." Jesus was the Son of God yet he chose to get mocked at and suffered so much by his own people that He was trying to save. He was crucified on the cross and He did it because He loved us.

Muhammad is No.1 ? Are you kidding me ? That thing was a slavemaster, A caravan robber, A warlord, And a pedophile. It was responsible for radical islamic terrorism, It's a massive liar and is a pagen idol, Jesus should be No.1.

Hi, I voted jesus because we know god is very peaceful and very kindness and very respectful and then he can heal us. jesus will forgive us, and I love jesus.

He went to death as a lamb, without opposition. Even he healed the ear of one of the men that were taking him captive to be condemned to death, and told Peter not to use any violent action, neither any arm. And the Lord Jesus, the King of kings did all this because He loves us all, He loves me and loves everyone, even if He doesn't get back love from us!

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

He is very kind, honest, has an okay sense of humor. When he was five, he stole a statue from a temple with his friends, but he was the only one that admitted it! He beloved in none violence, and my favorite quote from him had to do with the fact he was all religions. He was probably the kindest man of the modern world. As an Indian, when India was fighting for independence, he thought only to protest, and didn't even argue when thrown in jail for it. Basically, he is the best.

I've read Mahathma Gandhi's book " My Experiments with Truth ". Really what great book man. He mentioned each & everything about his life like good & bad what not everything. I am 21 now. may be I've understood very less percentage (max. 30%) in that book. But I want to understand each and every line in that book. very interesting and emotional. I like gandhi. I am going to conver as non vegan because I am very influenced by Mr. Gandhi. Love you man.

The only man, who showed the world that people can fight for their rights and freedom without violence unlike other freedom fighters like lenin, mao and others. He was a man with great determination with which he broke the backbone of british empire. I 'm proud to b born in a country where bapu took birth.

Mahatma was very aware of the strife surrounding him & was peaceful not for his own benefit or against any specific power, but for the sake of peace itself!

4 Martin Luther King, Jr.

So basically you rank Martin Luther King Jr. t he same as jesus. He is tied for second place right? Martin Luther King only half finished the job. There is still Racism today and discrimination apparently according to the media. Jesus is the only one on this list that inspired a religion that is peaceful and nonviolent to this day. There is a Muslim terrorist organization in the Middle East trying to take over the entire world. And Muhammad is apparently ranked #1. Well I guess Muslims in the Middle East aren't listening to muhammed and following his example. Christians Idolize jesus but the Muslims in the Middle East are still living the life Jesus and Muhammad were trying to end. So basically they are ignoring them and stuff.

Ahh yes this man is in my opinion the BEST man that excited. I mean who would listen to his quotes and his "I have a dream speech" and NOT feel inspired to do more to help people better understand that racism is one of the most terrifying and terrible things on the face of the earth

Martin Luther King Jr got rid of racism in America for the most part. Amazing person.

He stood up to what he thought civilly.
What else can you expect?

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.

Many people love Political and Western figures like they're the most kind, deep and empathetic. Jesus and Mohammad were great figures and many see them as Holy or godly. But Buddha is the single most caring, peaceful, Kind person in the last 3,000 years. He lived before Jesus and Mohammad but found similar Truth and the middle way, between rigid minimalism and bold materialism. His kindness, love, fairness, kindness to animals and ways inspired perhaps billions. He is less of a 'lord' and more of a healer who just wanted peace, love and equality to brighten the world.

The kindest person in the whole world is Lord Buddha. He spread kindness to all living beings. When he wakes up in the morning and searches for helpless people and helped them. His ability of making one's mind is incomparable. In many occasions he has created peace in the society. In one previous birth, he was able to attain Nibbana, without teaching the way to attain Nibbana. But he decided to attain Samma Sambuddhahood, so he can teach others the way to ge rid of sorrow, Nibbana and started to live in normal life until he collected all the merits to attain Samma Sambuddhahood.

Buddha creates peace and harmony. He gives happiness to us all. It is us humans who show hatred.Buddha has taught us to restore the peace by meditating. It helps us cool down and think about our actions. Buddha watches over us and guides us to do the right thing. We should all follow Buddha's suggestions. Buddha helps us and teaches us no wrong. Buddha is the most peaceful person in the world.

Didn't start any wars, never claimed divinity, eliminated class system, encouraged rational thought and against blind faith, and is quite possibly the greatest Eastern philosopher, and maybe even the first humanist. Oh and he actually existed unlike some others we have to question...not mentioning any names.

6 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.

He was a special man and he was sent to prison for standing up to what he believed in and got sent to jail for 27 years and when he got out he forgave not fought back.

He could have remained a violent, bitter, terrorist after being in prison for decades. Instead he changed his ways and helped his country peacefully end apartheid.

We are learning about Africa in school, and to be honest, about what I've heard about Nelson is he is damn kind.

Truly a kind man he a saved a whole nation and he saved millions of lives rest in peace madiba you will always be in our hearts.

7 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 On September 5th, 2016, Pope Francis Canonized Mother Teresa, making her St. Teresa of Calcutta.

As an ALBANIAN, Mother Teresa was one of the greatest persons in the history of mankind. She proved this by countributing in as many aspects as she could to make life easier for people living in poor countries.

Mother Teresa is a noble peace prize winning Christian nun who will forever leave this Earth as one of the holiest Christians ever.

"She showed what a person, not only catholic or religious, anyone, should be and do. She was the impersonation of goodness and selflessness."

Influential woman who never did anything that didn't help someone else.

8 John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

John lennon Is a peace on earth icon. He represented more than just the beatles, he was the symbol of anti-war. He preached for peace or love in almost all of his songs. His ideas were simple yet creative and he was able to enumerate all of them via the infamous music that he created. John lennon is an inspiration to all who campaign against war. Lennon should definitely place somewhere in the top 7.

Though he has physically abused his wife and stated that he is more famous than Jesus, John Lennon is an influential man of his time and inspirational at that. As others before me, I completely agree that our generation is in need of his creative mindset and to help the ones who can't see the peace in our world. He is an inspiration to most and still is to this day.

Millions of young people adored this man and his wife Yoko Ono. In the world today there is an urgent need for the revival of his ideas. To inspire our youth to have another goal in live than becoming rich!

His song imagine changed my life. I am a musician who is 14. All of you look out for a Massachusetts musician with the initials L S O somewhere in the future. God bless mr Lennon.

9 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 in its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. Abraham Lincoln was born in Feb. 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. ...read more.

He is very peaceful people. He did much for human rights. He can be called champion of human rights. He abolished the slavery system in U.S.

If it wasn't for him, black slavery wouldn't have ever ended...

He was an amazing president to us all.

He took away slavery

10 Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana, and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or ...read more.

The ultimate humanitarian. Gave more time & money to sick children & adults and charities than any other celebrity. Even in his death a % of earnings still goes to charities.

An interview with the Captain EO dancers revealed how Michael felt devastated when one of the dancers killed a bee. He said "that bee had a soul too, Tony". And he was not joking.

When his vocal coach Seth Rigg killed a fly in front of him tears appeared in his eyes and told Seth "it was enjoying its freedom living his life and you ended it". And he was not joking.

He even had compassion for insects.

He was one of those few people who - quite literally - couldn't hurt a fly.

He was persecuted in one of the most mean spirited witch-hunts of American history and still in the middle of it all he thought about an old man the founder of Sony, who suffered a stroke, and sent him a "healing tape", if you listen to it and you still believe he could harm anyone you need your head checked.

Even in 2005 when his life was at stake he found the strength to think about Tom Mesereau's dying sister and a cancer stricken fan, he still opened the gates of Neverland ...more

He loved children, he had cared for them and people, most of his songs unlike other artists are about world issues and explain things, and he also had the world record for the highest donation to charity

The King of Giving just didn't write songs about racial brotherhood, togetherness and world peace. He had an impressive huge heart behind closed doors. His legacy has always been about LOVE & peace. Michael's life long philanthropy is listed in the Guinness world Records. In death, upon his orders, His estate is continuing the gift of giving to others.
He is truly worthy of mention among the peacemakers.

The Contenders
11 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.

During his lifetime, Cunfucius was treated like a useless, babbling, naive buffoon by everyone he met. They were right. He was ineffictive in his government jobs and useless as a military consultant. His teachings were fortune cookie nonsense that pandered to the dumbest common denominator... hence his popularity today!

Although he makes patriotism overrated, his philosophy is very peaceful. He opposes all kind of war, and don't do anything he don't want to get.

Probably one of the most peaceful person who ever lived. This man believed in peace and nothing but peace.

As a filipino girl, I think this dude was really nice...

12 Diana, Princess of Wales Diana, Princess of Wales, was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, who is the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II.

If you disagreed with Princess Diana, she was not in the habit of having you executed, an none of her followers would murder you either. How many above her on this "peace" list could say the same?

Princess Diana was cool I don't know why prince Charles didn't see that.

She was a amazing woman and it was a horrible day when she passed.

I made a project on her and it is such a sad story but I still love her

13 Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "It Ain't Me". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sings in alto. She is best known for her role as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place.

Selena Gomez is just a wonderful person who donates money an dis the greatest singer I could think of.

She is soo kind I saw on e of her videos she was giving money too poor

I love her singing

14 Socrates Socrates was a classical Greek philosopher credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy, and as being the first moral philosopher, of the Western ethical tradition of thought.

All I know is that he was sentenced to death by drinking poison hemlock tea.

He killed himself rather than change his opinion to appease the dumb masses.

The unexamined life isn't worth living!

Cause he's smart 9+10=21

15 Alexander Hamilton Alexander Hamilton was an American statesman, politician, legal scholar, military commander, lawyer, banker, and economist. He was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

My favorite president

16 Josip Broz Tito Josip Broz (7 May 1892, Kumrovec – 4 May 1980, Ljubljana), commonly known as Tito, was a Yugoslav communist revolutionary and statesman, serving in various roles until his death in 1980. During World War II he was the leader of the Partisans, often regarded as the most effective resistance movement ...read more.

The man actually united Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks, Slovenes, Macedonians, Montenegrins, including a couple of major minorities such as Albanians and Hungarians in one impossible country - Yugoslavia, and for decades he actually made them believe they loved each. What is remarkable is that Yugoslavia was united after WWII after most of these little states were marionette fascist states under Hitler's or Mussolini's regimes or parts of Italy and therefore these separated people hunted and genocide each other. He united them all under one flag as equal nations. What an impossible task. What these nations don't understand today is that strength is in the numbers and that national pride is only going to take you so far before history turns once again, and you become someone else marionette states again or worse, you disappear from the history once again as some other nation. Where does East/West, South/North meet? Balkans.

Greatest leader in Balkan's history. Turned an almost-medieval country (1945) into a globally respected almost-superpower in a period a bit less than 40 years.

Best leader that Balkan ever had!

He was the best president ever.

17 Elizabeth II Elizabeth II is Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. Elizabeth was born in London as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and she was educated privately at home.

Sorry but this woman is nothing but evil. Wearing a hat worth a billion, sitting in a diamond gold chair while telling that we should think about the poor.

She so beautiful I just queen of the year of her life.

Why she's here? She's racist

She is very charismatic.

18 Fred Rogers Fred McFeely Rogers was an American television personality, musician, puppeteer, writer, producer, and Presbyterian minister.

Quite possibly the best human being who ever lived! I see myself as a very good person, but I can't hold a candle to Mr. Rogers.

If anyone was as perfect and peaceful as this man, we would never die, for he who is free of faults will never perish.

I came on here just because I was going to make sure I was right in suspecting he was the kindest person ever. He should be #1 on the list
143

Nicest guy to ever live. Would reply to every piece of fan mail he has ever gotten.

19 Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. (January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016) was an American professional boxer, activist, entertainer, poet, and philanthropist. Nicknamed The Greatest, he is widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sporting figures of the 20th century, and ...read more.

A civil right activist and spoke his mind about racism.
He was probably one of the most influential sports figures ever when talking about racial equality.

Look at every time he spoke, in public or in private, the message was peace.

Muhammad Ali is one of the most inspiring people of all time.

He had great ideas against racism!

20 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.

That powdered wig is lit

21 The Blessed Virgin Mary

If Angel Gabriel came over and randomly said "Hey, your gonna become the mother of the Messiah! ' How would you react? Although a bit startled, young Mary excepted the message. SPOILER ALERT:don't READ THE REST IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BIBLE(you most likely already know). She supported her son and believed that he was the Messiah. When it came to her son's death, she mourned, but at the same time, believed in her son's words that she would be saved. Since she believed in him, she was saved and now lives eternally in Heaven. She teaches us now like a mother to live in peace. One question:How is John Cena more peaceful than Virgin Mary?

She was just doin' her thing one night and this angel was like "ay you gonna have a baby and name him Jesus... oh yeah and also he is the messiah and savior." If an angel told me that, I would panic, but Mary did as the angel said and was an amazing mother to him.

She couldn't sin and produced our Lord and Savior. She is the mother of peace.

How can Taylor Swift be considered greater than Madonna?

22 Malcolm X Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little and also known as el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz, was an American Muslim minister and human rights activist.

If it wasn't for the misrepresentation of Malcom X as an hateful violent civil right activist he would be much higher on the list. I dare you to watch one of his speeches and find one violent hateful thing he said. He was for self-defense not violence. He was for justice equality and freedom. He spoke the ugly truth about white America and because they have nothing to refute it with they silence and slander him to this day because the racism he exposed still happens today. That's why you can listen to any of his speeches from 50 years ago and you will think he is talking about this year. The truth is hate to those who hate truth.

Malcolm X was an amazing man shot down before his time and a peace and civil-rights activist.

OK first Islam isn't a race. But anyway Malcolm X is a great man and speaks truth.

This guy deserves to get a higher rank!

23 Baha'u'llah

O SON OF SPIRIT!
My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting.

Baha'u'llah sad O SON OF SPIRIT! My first counsel is this: Possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart, that thine may be a sovereignty ancient, imperishable and everlasting

He deserves to be on this list but I think he should be way higher up the list e.g. before the wrestler, before Bob Marley, and before a few others.

The time must come when the imperative necessity for the holding of a vast, an all-embracing assemblage of men will be universally realized.

24 Pope John Paul II Pope John Paul II served as Pope and sovereign of the Vatican City State from 1978 to 2005. He is called Saint John Paul the Great by some Catholics.

He ended the Cold War peacefully with the help of Ronald Reagan

25 John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. ...read more.

This is a joke. because John Cena, the proffesional wrestler who very peacefully punches his opponent is totally the most peaceful dude in history...

When he shares his clothes to the less fortunate before a match, I just adore him.

The peaceful way he does the 5 knuckle shuffle gives him my vote for this list.

We love you John Cena your great WWE super star.
