100 The Most Influential Personalities In Human History----2 By Michal Hart
The writer of the book Michal Hart is a Christian but he impartially ranked Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Ahmad Mujtaba (PBUH), the top most personality of the history among great scholars, intellectuals, religious leaders and scientists who lonely revolutionized the lives of human being through the true religion Islam. His (PBUH) leadership was the most effective. He gave the reason of putting Hazrat Muhammad on top among the extra-ordinary people because according to him, the majority of the great and successful people took birth in the civilized centers, and were trained by the most capable and leaned scholars. While when prophet of Islam(PBUH) took birth, the Arab was a backward place away from the centers of latest knowledge and technology and Arabs were ignorant of the knowledge. His (PBUH) mother died when He was 6 years old. He was married in the age of 25 years, Almighty Allah Talked to Him through Jabrael angel and bestowed on him the status of a prophet. When He (PBUH) started preaching the Quresh people fearing risk of their effectiveness opposed Him (PBUH) strictly and He was compelled to migrate to Medina Munawwara that was an important turn in His life. He gained popularity as a Prophet of Allah and a great politician in Medina and number of followers of Islam increased tremendously. He (PBUH) returned to Makka as a conquerer after 8 years. Now He (PBUH) was recognized as Prophet and was an influential guardian of Arabian territory.
The writer gives another reason of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) being number 1 as compared to Christianity that has more number than Muslims in the world as Hazrat Isa (RA) had no that much effect on his Ummah as Hazrat Muhammadd (PBUH) had and Jesus Christ had few followers accompanying him when he was lifted by Allah to heavens. "Ahad Nama Jadeed" (Latest Charter) was organized by Saint Paul. Jesus Christ could not influence state affairs in his life as Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) did. Both religious and political aspects of Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Ahmad Mujtaba (PBUH) were the strongest, according to Michal Hart.

Hazrat Umar Farooq (RA), the second Caliph of Muslim has been enlisted on No 52 regarding influencing the world. Conquering Syria, Palestine, Turkey, Egypt, Iraq and North Africa during the 10 year era of Hazrat Umar Farooq(RA) was due to the marvellous leadership of second Caliph, but according to the author the actual motive behind all his greater achievements was the personality and influence of Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Ahmad Mujtaba (PBUH).
