Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Allah (swt) says regarding the character and position of his noble messenger Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him):

And you (Muhammad) (stand) on an exalted standard of character. [068:004]

And exalted for you your esteem? [094:004] To the Believers is he (Muhammad) most kind and merciful. (9:128) Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Apostle of God, and the Seal of the Prophets: and God has full knowledge of all things. [033:040] Allah (swt) in the above verses says that prophet Muhammad (PBUH) exalted the esteem of his messenger Mohammad (PBUH).As a matter of fact Allah (swt) always speaks the truth, Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is known to be the most beloved and most successful prophet in the history. Taking the above promise of Allah (swt) in to consideration, lets see what Famous personalities like Scientists, Writers, Scholars, and Leaders have to say about the character and success of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH): Muhummad (pbuh) was the "Most Influential Man in History" - Michael M. Hart; Muhummad (pbuh) was the "Most Successful of all Religious Personalties" - Encyclopaedia Britannica 11th Ed; Muhummad (pbuh) was the "Greatest Leader of all Times" - Jules Masserman in the "TIME" Magazine; Muhummad (pbuh) was the "Greatest Man that ever Lived" - Lamartine in his "History of the Turks"; Professor K.S Ramakrishna Rao says: The personality of Muhammad, it is most difficult to get into the whole truth of it. Only a glimpse of it I can catch. What a dramatic succession of picturesque scenes? There is Muhammad the Prophet. There is Muhammad the General; Muhammad, the King Muhammad, the Warrior Muhammad, the Businessman Muhammad, the Preacher Muhammad, the Philosopher Muhammad, the Statesman Muhammad, the Orator Muhammad, the Reformer Muhammad, the Refuge of Orphans Muhammad, the Protector of Slaves Muhammad, the Emancipator of Women Muhammad, the Judge Muhammad, the Saint And all these magnificent roles, in all these departments of human activities, he is like a HERO. [By an Indian non-Muslim Professor K.S Ramakrishna Rao in his book Muhammad the prophet of Islam]. Jules Masserman says: Leaders must fulfill three functions- 1: Provide for the well-being of the led. 2: Provide a social organization in which people feel relatively Secure. 3: Provide them with one set of beliefs. People like Pasteur and Salk are leaders in the first sense. People like Gandhi and Confucious. On one hand, and Alexander, Caesar and Hitler on the other. Jesus and Buddha belong in the third category alone. Perhaps the greatest leader of all times was Muhammad (PBUH) who combined all three functions. To a lesser degree, Moses did the same. [From an essay leadership Gap By JULES MASSERMAN, U.S. Psychoanalyst july/15/1975] George Bernard Shaw Says: "I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion, which appears to possess that assimilating capability to the changing phases of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today. Medieval ecclesiastics, either through ignorance of bigotry, painted Mohammadanism in the darkest colors. They were in fact; trained to hate both the man Muhammad and his to them was anti-Christ. I have religion studied him. The wonderful man, and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ he must be called the savior of humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world he would succeed in solving the problems in a way that would bring it the much-needed peace and happiness. Europe is beginning to be enamored of the creed of Muhammad. In the next century I may go still further in recognizing the utility of that creed in solving its problems, and it is in this sense that you must understand my prediction".
