ENCYCLOPAEDIA BRITANNICA confirms:
“.... A mass of detail in the early sources show that he was an honest and upright man
who had gained the respect and loyalty
of others who were like-wise honest
and upright men." (Vol. 12)

(Sir George Bernard Shaw in 'The Genuine Islam,' Vol. 1, No. 8, 1936.)
He ranked Mohammed first in the list, who contributed towards the benefit and uplift of mankind:
only man in history who was supremely
successful on both the religious
and secular levels."
(M.H. Hart, THE 100: A RANKING OF
THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSONS
IN HISTORY, New York, 1978, p. 33)
Prof. 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 Warrior; Muhammad, the Businessman; 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. All in all these magnificent roles, in all these departments of human activities, he is alike a hero."
The famous poetess of India, SAROJINI NAIDU says:
(S.Naidu, IDEALS OF ISLAM, vide Speeches & Writings, Madras, 1918, p. 169)
"How one man single-handedly, could weld warring tribes and wandering Bedouins into a most powerful and civilized nation in less than two
In his ‘HEROES AND HEROWORSHIP’, was simply amazed as to:
The renowned historian:
“If greatness of purpose,
smallness of means and
astounding results are
the three criteria of human genius,
who could dare to compare
any great man in modern history
His endless prayers, his mystic conversations with God, his death and his triumph after death;
All these attest not to an imposture but to a firm conviction which gave him the power to restore a dogma.
"Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images;
The founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire, that is MUHAMMAD.
As regards all the standards by which Human Greatness may be measured, we may well ask,
IS THERE ANY MAN GREATER THAN HE?"
(Alphonse de Lamar tine, HISTOIRE DE LA TURQUIE,
Paris, 1854, Vol. II, pp 276-277)
DIWAN CHAND SHARMA wrote:
"Muhammad was the soul of kindness,
and his influence was felt and never
(D.C. Sharma, THE PROPHETS OF THE EAST, Calcutta, 1935, pp. 12)
"But do you mean to tell me that the man who in the full flush of youthful vigour, a young man of four and twenty (24), married a woman much his senior, and remained faithful to her for six and twenty years (26), at fifty years of age when the passions are dying married for lust and sexual passion? Not thus are men's lives to be judged. And you look at the women whom he married, you will find that by every one of them an alliance was made for his people, or something was gained for his followers, or the woman was in sore need of protection."
(Dr Annie Besant (Dr. Annie Besant in 'The Life and Teachings of Mohammad,' Madras, 1932)
EDWARD GIBBON and SIMON OCKLEY
speaking on the profession of ISLAM:
“’I BELIEVE IN ONE GOD, AND MAHOMET, AN APOSTLE OF GOD’ is the simple and invariable profession of Islam. The intellectual image of the Deity has never been degraded by any visible idol; the honor of the Prophet has never
disciples within the bounds of reason and religion”
(HISTORY OF THE SARACEN EMPIRES, London, 1870, p. 54)
In the words of PROF. HURGRONJE
"The league of nations founded by the prophet of Islam put the principle of international unity and human brotherhood on such universal foundations as to show candle to other nations.“
He continues: "The fact is that no nation of the world can show a parallel to what Islam has done towards the realization of the idea of the League of Nations."
He did it…
YES! HE IS

“O Prophet (Muhammad)! Verily, We have sent you as witness, and a bearer of glad tidings, and a warner”
To share the message with whole humanity. Glad tidings about the eternal wisdom and Heaven. Warn about the hell fire in life after death for who deny
Now please relax for a moment
The least YOU could do as a thinking and concerned human being is to stop for
And supposing they really are true and
or hear about him, isn't it time you responded to this tremendous challenge and put in some effort to know him?
He was born in Arabia in the year 570, started his mission of preaching the religion, “submission to One God” at the age of forty and departed from this world at the age of sixty-three.
During this short period of 23 years of his Prophet hood, he changed the complete Arabian peninsula
Human history has never known such a complete transformation of
