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.

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

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). more.

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

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

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

He lived for His people, He died for His people, He arose from the grave for His people.

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.

Mohandas Ghandhi also known as great soul is still remembered by the world. We have never see a man like him

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.

4 Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was a civil rights leader! Come on

The civil rights movement strongest voice. It would have been an honour to meet him

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

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.

Buddha is as peaceful as it gets.

HE left his kingdom to find the truth of he world .He also made peace among most people

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

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.

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

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.

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.

I love you mother teresa

Best mother to India

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.

You are so intellectually feckless and bereft to even pretend to know his personal life. Both wives spoke so highly of him and he was the most peaceful honest self reflective and forward thinking activist for peace we've ever had in line with MLK and Ghandi and NelsonMandella

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.

John Lennon beat his wife and emotionally abused his kids. Don't fall for this false narrative. Do the research. He wasn't a good guy at all.

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.

Like many others on this list his philosophy was more peaceful than his personal life. The Beatles were more famous than Jesus when he said that by the way.

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 its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

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

Best president

he was the one who had desegregated slavery thank you

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 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

Michael was an amazing song artist and I'm glad he came into this world and make people happy letting have hope, courage and he loved his family, wife, and kids and everyone around him.

Michael truly was one of the kindest souls to ever exist. From a young age, he always wanted to make the world a better place, and that was his dream. He fought hard for it, and devoted countless of his private hours helping the less fortunate, away from the spotlight. Michael not only inspired others through his songs, but also through his own actions. He made me a better person.

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

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.

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...

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!

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.

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

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?

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

She is beautiful

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.

She is amazing and will never change she is such a role model

she is amazing and will never change

she is just a very peaceful women

Beautiful woman

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.

Cause he's smart 9+10=21

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.


15 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 more.

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.

The biggest leader in history

True Politician of the 20th century

He fought the nazis, he build a country! Best man ever

16 Alexander Hamilton

My favorite president

... president?

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.

That's because she's part of the royal family. Do you expect the royal family to wear rags?

She's not actually a world leader. She's just a waste of money

For Queen and Country.

She was fair to whoever what country she might of had to rule but made equal rights

She is part of the illuminati and has is doing what her mother did (not killing people like her mother). Is not returning the trillions of pound that her family stole and causing world problems

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

Fred was to busy helping little kids to make it to the top of this list

He was a great role model and one of the nicest people in the world.

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

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.

19 Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali (January 17th 1942 - June 3rd 2016) was an American former professional boxer . He was generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport.

He is a person to look up to

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

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.

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

Being the first president does'nt make you peaceful by any means in fact some protest the founding fathers did were actually quite violent

He was the first president of the United colony


21 The Blessed 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.

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

She could sin. Just like me (and if you're being honest with yourself) you. - HaiThere

She is though only lady to get the grace to have son like jesus

22 Baha'u'llah

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

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

World unity world peace that was his word

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

23 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.

Very intelligent man

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

This guy deserves to get a higher rank!

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

24 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. more.

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.

Can't see him so no reason to dislike him

The AA makes him peaceful

25 Bob Marley Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim.

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.

I wish people would realize how peaceful this man was and just shut up about the weed.

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

He is truly an inspiration. He made blacks know that they deserve better but that's not what they needed. So he knew that if you put your feelings into music you will feel more relieved.#OneLove
