• I believe that if a man like him were to assume
the dictatorship of the modern world he would succeed
in solving its problems in a way that would bring it
the much needed peace and happiness.
• I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad
that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow

• "If any religion had the chance of ruling
over England, nay Europe within the next hundred years,
it could be Islam."
• I have always held the religion of Muhammad
in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality.
It is the only religion, which appears to me to possess
that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of
existence, which can make itself appeal to every age.

He ranked Mohammed first in the list, who contributed
towards the benefit and uplift of mankind.
"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."

"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."

IDEALS OF ISLAM
• "It was the first religion that preached
and practiced democracy; for, in the mosque, when the
call for prayer is sounded and worshippers are gathered
together, the democracy of Islam is embodied five times
a day when the peasant and king kneel side by side and
proclaim: 'God Alone is Great'...
• I have been struck over and over again by this
indivisible unity of Islam that makes man instinctively
In ‘HEROES AND HEROWORSHIP’
• How one man single-handedly, could weld warring
tribes and wandering Bedouins into a most powerful and
civilized nation in less than two decades.
• The lies (Western slander) which well-meaning
zeal has heaped round this man (Muhammad) are disgraceful
to us only.
• A silent great soul, one of that who cannot
but be earnest. He was to kindle the world, the world’s
Maker had ordered so.

• 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 with Muhammad?
• His forbearance in victory, his ambition, which
was entirely devoted to one idea and in no manner striving
for an empire;
• 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 true belief.
• Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior,
conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational true belief,
of a system of religion 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?“

biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to

• Muhammad was the soul of kindness, and his influence
was felt and never forgotten by those around him.

• 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

• 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 transgressed the measure of human
virtues; and his living precepts have restrained the
gratitude of his disciples within the bounds of reason

• "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.“

of the world can show a parallel to what Islam has done

• Today after a lapse of fourteen centuries,
the life and teachings of MUHAMMAD (pbuh) have survived
without the slightest loss, alteration or interpolation.
They offer the same undying hope for treating mankind's
many ills, which they did when he was alive.
• This is not a claim of Muhammad's (pbuh) followers
but also the inescapable conclusion forced upon by a
critical and unbiased history.
• He was by far the most remarkable man that
ever set foot on this earth.
• He preached a religion, founded a state, built
a nation, laid down a moral code and initiated numerous
social and political reforms.
• He established a powerful and dynamic society
to practice and represent his teachings and completely
revolutionized the worlds of human thought and behavior
for all times to come.
May Peace of God Be Upon Him
He presented a Book widely read and memorized since
beginning while he was Ummi in the term of The Book
means one who never learned how to read and write. He
claimed that The Book is revealed to him from Heavens
by God Almighty. The Book is very much present in all
times of history in all the parts of the globe as well
as millions memorize it by heart from beginning to the
last and can recite any time.
Let us see how this Book presents him. Here is English
translation of the verses:
Chapter 21 Verse
107 of THE HOLY QUR’AN:
“And O Prophet, WE have sent you as OUR Mercy
for the Universe.”
Chapter 68 verse 4:
“And indeed, O Prophet, you are at inspirational
highest morals (to be followed).”
Chapter 9 Verse 128:
“O Mankind, surely has come to you a Messenger
from among yourselves. It grieves him that you might
suffer in the life to come. Ardently anxious is he for
you, full of compassion and mercy towards the believers.”
During this short period of 23 years of his Prophet-hood,
he changed the Arabian peninsula completely.
• From paganism and idolatry to SUBMISSION to
the One True God.
• From tribal quarrels and wars to national solidarity
• From drunkenness and debauchery to sobriety
• From lawlessness and anarchy to disciplined
• From utter bankruptcy to the highest standards
of moral excellence.
Human history has never known such a complete transformation
of a society or a place before or since – and
IMAGINE all these unbelievable wonders in JUST OVER
Relax for a Moment and Think!
Whether we have studied the Heavenly Book presented
by the Prophet (pbuh) with the claim that it is not
authored by him? Have we ever tried to understand its
messages and followed it in a true spirit or have we
followed the traditions we got from our family or from
any other source? Whether we ourselves have discovered
the personality, morals and message the Prophet (pbuh)
preached and practiced? Do we follow him in true spirit
or do some rituals we got from our family or someone
told us to do?
Think again, whether God Almighty will judge us according
to the books authored by any human being or according
to HIS Own Heavenly Book?
It is the only Book on this earth in its Godly wordings
which numerous times remind the reader to cross check
the religion he is getting from his fore-fathers. The
Book prepares a smart, intelligent and most scientific
person who does not accept anything without cross checking
it on his intellect and common sense. The Book changed
the course of history and made a whole illiterate, tribal
and uncivilized population of the Peninsula into most
literate, modern, scientific and developing lot within
the span of only 23 years and the next 15 years, human
history evidently witnessed a vast area of Africa and
Asia into a spiritual empire immerged as a super power.
Let us make an online connection individually with
the Original and correct ourselves accordingly for our
own benefit, so we can start a process to correct ourselves
for our own peaceful survival.
