A Muslim does not need anyone to prove that our beloved Prophet Muhammad is the greatest human that ever lived or will ever live. But when a Muslim hears that a Christian has ranked the beloved Prophet as the most influential person in history, having compared what according to him are the 100 of the greatest religious personalities, statesmen, scientists, explorers, philosophers and artistic and literary figures, he is naturally interested, specially when the second Khalif Umar ibn al-Khattab is ranked as the 51st Most Influential Persons in History.
Michael H. Hart, a Christian American says :
"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" Taken from the book
