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 level.
I felt like the Islamic scholar Muhammad Abduh (1849-1905), who said on his return from a trip to Europe to his homeland Egypt 'I saw no Muslims in Europe but I saw a lot of Islam,' and of his homeland 'There are a lot of Muslims here but no Islam. - Imran Khan
I'm hungry for knowledge. The whole thing is to learn every day, to get brighter and brighter. That's what this world is about. You look at someone like Gandhi, and he glowed. Martin Luther King glowed. Muhammad Ali glows. I think that's from being bright all the time, and trying to be brighter. - Jay-Z
Muhammad has always been standing higher than the Christianity. He does not consider god as a human being and never makes himself equal to God. Muslims worship nothing except God and Muhammad is his Messenger. There is no any mystery and secret in it. - Leo Tolstoy
Muhammad is the greatest man that history ever knew - Gustave Le Bon
It's ironic when black non-Muslims say Islam is not a religion that uplifts black people when two of the most celebrated black heroes in recent history were both Muslim; Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali. - Habeeb Akande
Among leaders who have made the greatest impact through ages, I would consider Muhammad before Jesus Christ. - James Gavin
The height of human achievement and glory, Muhammad. - Pringle Kennedy
Ki Muhammad se wafa toonay to ham teray hainYe jahan cheez hai kiya lauho qalam tere hain - Muhammad Iqbal
That was always the difference between Muhammad Ali and the rest of us. He came, he saw, and if he didn't entirely conquer - he came as close as anybody we are likely to see in the lifetime of this doomed generation.
Muhammad introduced the concept of such Glorious and Omnipotent God in Whose eyes all worldly systems are pieces of straw. Islamic equality of mankind is no fiction as it is in Christianity. No human mind has ever thought of such total freedom as established by Muhammad. - Mawde Royden
Muhammad adhered meticulously to the charter he forged for Medina, which - grounded as it was in the Quranic injunction, "Let there be no compulsion in religion" (2:256) - is arguably the first mandate for religious tolerance in human history. - Huston Smith
Heri kuwa Mkristo wa Yesu Kristo, au Mwislamu wa Mtume Muhammad, kuliko kuwa mkristo wa kanisa au mwislamu wa msikiti. - Enock Maregesi
Artinya, Anda lebih mulai tertarik untuk mempelajari Qur’an sebagai sumber informasi yang ditinggalkan Nabi Muhammad dan menurut orang Islam masih otentik hingga sekarang dibanding menilai agama ini dari perilaku penganutnya? - Tasaro G.K.
