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.

He was the most compassionate Loving person walked on the earth. He died for us and he taught us to love and forgive others

2 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

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

3 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.

The modern inspiration of everyone who want to live a prosperous life. We hasn't seen Jesus or Mohammed but we have seen Gandhi

But what about the civilization games?

Truthfulness of him, is something I would like to achieve ever in life.
Read "My experiments with truth" & it truly changed way of thinking.

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

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

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. - SloppyFirsts

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

8 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.

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! - SloppyFirsts

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. - MChkflaguard_Yt

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...

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 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.

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.

Mr Lennon was a peace preaching man who has inspired me to be a peaceful person and also to start a world peace program at my school

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.

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 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

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 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.

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

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

For Queen and Country.

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

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.

17 Bob Marley 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. - 445956

"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

31 The Blessed Virgin Mary

How can Taylor Swift be considered greater than Madonna?

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