Top 10 Most Peaceful People In History

The Top Ten

1 Jesus

He loved even those who turned against him. That's a very hard thing to do - llamaboy17

He is peaceful because eventhough they hang him in the cross.. He prayed the father for their forgiveness. - paasadani

He died for our sins and answers our prayers. He loves us all.

Jesus was a weirdo... he accepted death for the sins of everyone? What person would? Also obviously, it didn't change anything. God is weird though... never found him real - Lucretia

2 Mohandas Gandhi

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.

Most peacefull person in history

Gandhi is the one of the world's most peaceful man and only a fool, who knows nothing about history will call him a racist.

Never supported violence

3 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.

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.

Muhammad (PBUH) is the greatest man in history; he's message was originally to spread peace, love, justice, equality and love between all people without thinking about their color or gender or nationality. He freed the captive and fed the hungry whether they're Muslims or not. Muhammad (PBUH) was honest and well-liked among all of his people. As the last prophet of God, he did his best to deliver the message of peace all over the world.

He Fed the poor and he brought peace to mecca and he was the last prophet of Allah, the only god and he was called Al-Ameen the honest one people would trust him to keep their possesions with him when they would travel and they would get their possesions back without any damage on them

Muhammad (PBUH) always make a deal and offer a peace to the enemy before war,Muhammad (PBUH) also didn't kill the prisoner of war and let them go with peace and keep move on

4 Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was a civil rights leader! Come on

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.

Martin tried everything for peaceful rights. He should be #2

I learned that he really is peacefull

5 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.

Buddha is as peaceful as it gets.

Started the religion that taught to sever ties with all things material. Pretty darn peaceful.

He left his kingdom, he left his luxurious life to learn the ways of life, I think that's enough said, my 2nd opotion but be GAndhi if I could choose

Buddhism was always my favorite religion that wasn't mine. I think he seems cool, and who doesn't want to be like thsat - Lucretia

6 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.

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.

One of the most influential civil rights leader of all time.

He went to Jail for years and came out without anger or hostility towards the people who put him there, that's pretty damn tranquil if you ask me

9 John Lennon 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.

Give peace a chance

Beat his wife though. - Lucretia

10 Michael Jackson 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 300,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under more.

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 ...more

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.

Michael Jackson was a truly, genuinely, selfless and generous soul who's message of love was simply twisted by an evil media.

Few rise up against the oppression and racism, yet Bob Marley did this, and he did it through his voice. He had no hate and simply love! Even the whites he loved for jah guided him and taught him to see the good in people not the evil.

"One love"... It says it all...

Bob marley should be higher than number 15

He's a reggae stoner, duh. - SoldierOfFortune

20 Baha'u'llah

The only prophet that the followers did kill and fight after his death.

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.

Which war you talking about Baha'ullah and war you name me a bahai that fight for his faith
you got prejudice
your word is not based on reason or actual experience.

Haha a joke. He caused a lot of death and war in Iran because of his fake religion. He was an idiot from England who wanted to ruin Iran
