Historian Michael Hart Ranks Prophet Muhamad (saw) as No.1

Here is a list of the top ten:

Rank: 1
Name: Muhammad
Religious Affiliation: Islam

Influence:

Prophet of Islam; conqueror of Arabia; Hart recognized that ranking Muhammad first might be controversial, but felt that, from a secular historian’s perspective, this was the correct choice because Muhammad is the only man to have been both a founder of a major world religion and a major military/political leader.
The central human figure of Islam, regarded by Muslims as the messenger and last prophet of God. Also active as a diplomat, merchant, philosopher, orator, legislator, reformer, and military leader.
