Let me see what non-muslims in history said about the Prophet of Islam.


MUHAMMAD, No. 1
The 100, a Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History
by Michael H. Hart

My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels. Of humble origins, Muhammad founded and promulgated one of the world's great religions, and became an immensely effective political leader. Today, thirteen centuries after his death, his influence is still powerful and pervasive. The majority of the persons in this book had the advantage of being born and raised in centers of civilization, highly cultured or politically pivotal nations. Muhammad, however, was born in the year 570, in the city of Mecca, in southern Arabia, at that time a backward area of the world, far from the centers of trade, art, and learning. Orphaned at age six, he was reared in modest surroundings. Islamic tradition tells us that he was illiterate. His economic position improved when, at age twenty-five, he married a wealthy widow. Nevertheless, as he approached forty, there was little outward indication that he was a remarkable person. Most Arabs at that time were pagans, who believed in many gods. There were, however, in Mecca, a small number of Jews and Christians; it was from them no doubt that Muhammad first learned of a single, omnipotent God who ruled the entire universe. When he was forty years old, Muhammad became convinced that this one true God (Allah) was speaking to him, and had chosen him to spread the true faith. For three years, Muhammad preached only to close friends and associates. Then, about 613, he began preaching in public. As he slowly gained converts, the Meccan authorities came to consider him a dangerous nuisance. In 622, fearing for his safety, Muhammad fled to Medina (a city some 200 miles north of Mecca), where he had been offered a position of considerable political power. This flight, called the Hegira, was the turning point of the Prophet's life. In Mecca, he had had few followers. In Medina, he had many more, and he soon acquired an influence that made him a virtual dictator. During the next few years, while Muhammad's following grew rapidly, a series of battles were fought between Medina and Mecca. This was ended in 630 with Muhammad's triumphant return to Mecca as conqueror. The remaining two and one-half years of his life witnessed the rapid conversion of the Arab tribes to the new religion.

When Muhammad died, in 632, he was the effective ruler of all of southern Arabia. The Bedouin tribesmen of Arabia had a reputation as fierce warriors. But their number was small; and plagued by disunity and internecine warfare, they had been no match for the larger armies of the kingdoms in the settled agricultural areas to the north. However, unified by Muhammad for the first time in history, and inspired by their fervent belief in the one true God, these small Arab armies now embarked upon one of the most astonishing series of conquests in human history. To the northeast of Arabia lay the large Neo-Persian Empire of the Sassanids; to the northwest lay the Byzantine, or Eastern Roman Empire, centered in Constantinople. Numerically, the Arabs were no match for their opponents. On the field of battle, though, the inspired Arabs rapidly conquered all of Mesopotamia, Syria, and Palestine. By 642, Egypt had been wrested from the Byzantine Empire, while the Persian armies had been crushed at the key battles of Qadisiya in 637, and Nehavend in 642. But even these enormous conquests, which were made under the leadership of Muhammad's close friends and immediate successors, Ali, Abu Bakr and 'Umar ibn al-Khattab, did not mark the end of the Arab advance. By 711, the Arab armies had swept completely across North Africa to the Atlantic Ocean There they turned north and, crossing the Strait of Gibraltar, overwhelmed the Visigothic kingdom in Spain.

For a while, it must have seemed that the Moslems would overwhelm all of Christian Europe. However, in 732, at the famous Battle of Tours, a Moslem army, which had advanced into the center of France, was at last defeated by the Franks. Nevertheless, in a scant century of fighting, these Bedouin tribesmen, inspired by the word of the Prophet, had carved out an empire stretching from the borders of India to the Atlantic Ocean-the largest empire that the world had yet seen. And everywhere that the armies conquered, large-scale conversion to the new faith eventually followed. Now, not all of these conquests proved permanent. The Persians, though they have remained faithful to the religion of the Prophet, have since regained their independence from the Arabs. And in Spain, more than seven centuries of warfare, finally resulted in the Christians reconquering the entire peninsula. However, Mesopotamia and Egypt, the two cradles of ancient civilization, have remained Moslem, as has the entire coast of North Africa. The new religion, of course, continued to spread, in the intervening centuries, far beyond the borders of the original Moslem conquests. Currently it has tens of millions of adherents in Africa and Central Asia and even more in Pakistan and northern India, and in Indonesia. In Indonesia, the new faith has been a unifying factor. In the Indian subcontinent, however, the conflict between Moslems and Hindus is still a major obstacle to unity.

How, then, is one to assess the overall impact of Muhammad on human history? Like all religions, Islam exerts an enormous influence upon the lives of its followers. It is for this reason that the founders of the world's great religions all figure prominently in this book. Since there are roughly twice as many Christians as Moslems in the world, it may initially seem strange that Muhammad has been ranked higher than Jesus. There are two principal reasons for that decision. First, Muhammad played a far more important role in the development of Islam than Jesus did in the development of Christianity. Although Jesus was responsible for the main ethical and moral precepts of Christianity (insofar as these differed from Judaism), St. Paul was the main developer of Christian theology, its principal proselytizer, and the author of a large portion of the New Testament. Muhammad, however, was responsible for both the theology of Islam and its main ethical and moral principles. In addition, he played the key role in proselytizing the new faith, and in establishing the religious practices of Islam. Moreover, he is the author of the Moslem holy scriptures, the Koran, a collection of certain of Muhammad's insights that he believed had been directly revealed to him by Allah. Most of these utterances were copied more or less faithfully during Muhammad's lifetime and were collected together in authoritative form not long after his death. The Koran therefore, closely represents Muhammad's ideas and teachings and to a considerable extent his exact words. No such detailed compilation of the teachings of Christ has survived. Since the Koran is at least as important to Moslems as the Bible is to Christians, the influence of Muhammad through the medium of the Koran has been enormous. It is probable that the relative influence of Muhammad on Islam has been larger than the combined influence of Jesus Christ and St. Paul on Christianity.

On the purely religious level, then, it seems likely that Muhammad has been as influential in human history as Jesus. Furthermore, Muhammad (unlike Jesus) was a secular as well as a religious leader. In fact, as the driving force behind the Arab conquests, he may well rank as the most influential political leader of all time. Of many important historical events, one might say that they were inevitable and would have occurred even without the particular political leader who guided them. For example, the South American colonies would probably have won their independence from Spain even if Simon Bolivar had never lived. But this cannot be said of the Arab conquests. Nothing similar had occurred before Muhammad, and there is no reason to believe that the conquests would have been achieved without him. The only comparable conquests in human history are those of the Mongols in the thirteenth century, which were primarily due to the influence of Genghis Khan. These conquests, however, though more extensive than those of the Arabs, did not prove permanent, and today the only areas occupied by the Mongols are those that they held prior to the time of Genghis Khan. It is far different with the conquests of the Arabs. From Iraq to Morocco, there extends a whole chain of Moslem nations united not merely by their faith in Islam, but also by their Arabic language, history, and culture.

The centrality of the Koran in the Moslem religion and the fact that it is written in Arabic have probably prevented the Arab language from breaking up into mutually unintelligible dialects, which might otherwise have occurred in the intervening thirteen centuries. Differences and divisions between these Arab states exist, of course, and they are considerable, but the partial disunity should not blind us to the important elements of unity that have continued to exist. For instance, neither Iran nor Indonesia, both oil-producing states and both Islamic in religion joined in the oil embargo of the winter of 1973-74. It is no coincidence that all of the Arab states, and only the Arab states, participated in the embargo. We see, then, that the Arab conquests of the seventh century have continued to play an important role in human history, down to the present day. It is this unparalleled combination of secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered the most influential single figure in human history.

The non-Muslim verdict on Muhammad (PBUH) If a man like Muhamed were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness.

George Bernard Shaw

People like Pasteur and Salk are leaders in the first sense. People like Gandhi and Confucius, on one hand, and Alexander, Caesar and Hitler on the other, are leaders in the second and perhaps the third sense. Jesus and Buddha belong in the third category alone. Perhaps the greatest leader of all times was Mohammed, who combined all three functions. To a lesser degree, Moses did the same.

Professor Jules Masserman

Head of the State as well as the Church, he was Caesar and Pope in one; but, he was Pope without the Pope's pretensions, and Caesar without the legions of Caesar, without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a police force, without a fixed revenue. If ever a man had the right to say that he ruled by a right divine, it was Muhummed, for he had all the powers without their supports. He cared not for the dressings of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life.

Rev. R. Bosworth-Smith

Muhammad was the soul of kindness, and his influence was felt and never forgotten by those around him.

Diwan Chand Sharma, The Prophets of the East, Calcutta 1935, p. l 22.

Four years after the death of Justinian, A.D. 569, was born at Mecca, in Arabia the man who, of all men exercised the greatest influence upon the human race . . . Mohammed . . .

John William Draper, M.D., L.L.D., A History of the Intellectual Development of Europe, London 1875, Vol. 1, pp. 329-330

In little more than a year he was actually the spiritual, nominal and temporal rule of Medina, with his hands on the lever that was to shake the world.

John Austin, "Muhammad the Prophet of Allah," in T.P. 's and Cassel's Weekly for 24th September 1927.

Philosopher, Orator, Apostle, Legislator, Warrior, Conqueror of ideas Restorer of rational beliefs, of a cult without images; the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire, that is Muhammed. As regards all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than he?

Lamartine, Historie de la Turquie, Paris 1854, Vol. 11 pp. 276-2727

It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great prophet of Arabia, who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for that mighty Prophet, one of the great messengers of the Supreme. And although in what I put to you I shall say many things which may be familiar to many, yet I myself feel whenever I re-read them, a new way of admiration, a new of reverence for that mighty Arabian teacher.

Annie Besant, The Life and Teachings of Muhammad, Madras 1932, p. 4

Muhummed is the most successful of all Prophets and religious personalities.

Encyclopedia Britannica

I have studied him - the wonderful man - and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ he must be called the saviour of humanity.

George Bernard Shaw in "The Genuine Islam"

By a fortune absolutely unique in history, Mohammed is a threefold founder of a nation, of an empire, and of a religion.

Rev. R. Bosworth-Smith in "Mohammed and Mohammedanism 1946."

Like many religions an other groups, there are good and bad and Islam is the same.

With regards to Islam, i'm no expert but there are various schools of thought ranging from the more spiritual/mystic side of Sufism to the extremist, intolerant Wahabi side.

I also like to separate 'muslims' from Islam/the Koran. I've met some very cool muslims & some of them are my friends, but in reality they don't practice it and are muslims by culture. Then you have the muslims who are really religious and i find them the most intolerant and dangerous in their way of thinking.
The problem is that the moderate muslims that many people will find ok aren't harcore muslims, and if they do practice it, it's usually an interpreted version where the translations are more suited for westerners.
From some of the passages that i've read that have been translated to English, it's very hard to put a positive spin on, but so-called scholars tried to explain it away saying that it's not been interpreted correctly or it's taken out of context.

Also the double standards ie. Men can have up to 4 wives and have 72 virgins in heaven, but do women have the same deal?
The prophet Mohammed and Aisha etc

I just look at the Muslim countries or where they are a high % of them and unfortunately see hat it leads to.

It's very interesting looking up some apostates view like Ali Salina, and the son of the Hamas leader who now is an apostate

There's also a problem of muslim sexual grooming of young girls in England, and 'Love Jihad' not just in England but also in India & Kashmir and some seem to justify it as ok by the Koran.

Although the same can be said with other religions, Koran seems to justify the bad aspects much much more

That was not me saying it... it was George Bernard Shaw.
He said dictatorship  in his time where it did not have  a negative impact.
If he would use today's language he would have said, head of state.

Islam What Do U Think About It?

I have been a Muslim for 13 years now.   Islam is a beautiful religion, and it is rooted in truth, as it is not a religion named after any person, place or time; but rather it is the religion of the creation submitting to the Creator.  The sun and the moon are both "Muslim" because they submit to the Creator and follow the course prescribed by the Creator.  

Islam is also a deep spiritual practice, as it involves 5 daily prayers, fasting, and a once in a life time pilgrimage to Mekkah.  All acts of worship that challenge the believer throughout their life, and inspire them to seek knowledge and achieve discipline.

To answer your first question, Islam is both peaceful and violent.  Islam is peaceful in the sense that through it's meditation (thikr), it's prayers, and other practices it brings peace of mind to the believer.   However, there are verses in the Qu'ran that suggest a right to self-defense...

5:45

We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose or nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal." But if any one remits the retaliation by way of charity, it is an act of atonement for himself. And if any fail to judge by (the light of) what God hath revealed, they are (No better than) wrong-doers.


^^You see how the above verse appears to allow a violent response yet at the same time encourages peace?  

If you are interested in Islam or becoming a Muslim there is a supplication that you can make to Allah.  Basically asking God to guide you to the right decision, and if God puts something into your heart, then it becomes your responsibility to act upon it...

2:186

When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me: Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me: That they may walk in the right way.

What About Jihad And What YOU Think About It?


2:190

You may fight in the cause of GOD against those who attack you, but do not aggress. GOD does not love the aggressors.

^^As you can see from the above verse, and others like it, Jihad is a legit part of the religion in Islam.   It's hard to get a straight answer these days from Muslims on Jihad, because even saying the word "Jihad" could get you in trouble these days.  

Most any "Jihad" since WW1 has been an underground operation (as the Muslim world was mostly colonized and broken into Nations).  There was a time in the 80's when the Russians were in Afghanistan that Muslims around the the world could openly claim "Jihad" because at that time the United States and the United Nations were in support of any efforts to remove Russia from the region.  But that's a very rare case, post WW1.  

Before WW1 "Jihad" was more organized and openly discussed.  Because prior to WW1 the Muslims always had a Kalifah (Islamic World Leader) who could declare Jihad and thus make it incumbent upon any Muslims all over the world.  But since the Ottoman Empire fell in WW1 there is no clear Islamic ruler or Islamic leader, so Muslims are pretty much making all their own decisions in that regard.  

As for me myself, I'm actually a Libertarian politically and Jihad is a part of the religion that I don't follow.  But I'm not going to lie and try to be all PC and bullshit with you and spin words to make it sound like it's not a part of the religion and that Islam is all peace.

There are two types of Jihad.

Jihad anafs -  Struggle of the soul.

That is an jihad that every one is engaged in.. even you non-muslims.
you are doing Jihad anafs.

What is it. It is your every day struggle to do right and stay away from the bad.
Like if you see someone drop his wallet. You know that it is right 2 give it 2 him back. But in the back of you mind the evil side says "well he has enough, and I can use it because I come up short this month"

Or you have a loving wife at home, and a women comes on your way. You know full well that it is wrong, so you  struggle with yourself.
That is the struggle of your soul, trying  to do right.
all of us one day we do good the other day we do wrong. We try 2 balance it and have more good days then bad, Inshallah (God willing)

And then there is a second jihad.
Well unfortanly we live in a day and age where we want soundbites in a few sentences things explained.
But it is not that easy.
But the Jihad we believe in as muslims is legit. Is only waged in order 2 remove opression from the opressed or as a retaliation when attacked.
Does this mean it is allowed 2 attack innocent civilians in the west.
OFCOURSE NOT, these lunatics who attacks innocent civilians in the west also attack innocent muslims in their own countries.
They are a decease in our religion. And you must understand that they are supported for most part by the west themself.

If Islam was so intollerant, would there still be milions of christians living in Egypt, syria Lebanon. After more the 1000 years of muslim rule?
Was there any muslim or jew left in Spain, after christians took over muslims Andulusia?

These website who make it their busines 2 "teach" you about islam, is like going 2 a nazi-website 2 learn about judaism.

But the Jihad we believe in as muslims is legit. Is only waged in order 2 remove opression from the opressed or as a retaliation when attacked.
Does this mean it is allowed 2 attack innocent civilians in the west.
OFCOURSE NOT, these lunatics who attacks innocent civilians in the west also attack innocent muslims in their own countries.
They are a decease in our religion. And you must understand that they are supported for most part by the west themself.

If Islam was so intollerant, would there still be milions of christians living in Egypt, syria Lebanon. After more the 1000 years of muslim rule?
Was there any muslim or jew left in Spain, after christians took over muslims Andulusia?

These website who make it their busines 2 "teach" you about islam, is like going 2 a nazi-website 2 learn about judaism.




what about the jihad that mujahedeen & taliban are doing?
does beheading something have to do with islam?(no diss, serious question).
