The Greatest

I too want to be like him. He is my love, my hero and my celebrity. He is my inspiration, my guide and my influence. He is my only leader because he is the only one who teaches compassion, love and respect of humanity.

He is, about whom George Bernard Shaw says:
"If a man like Mohammed were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness."
Whose enemies would call him by the most respectable names. They would call him ‘the most truthful’, ‘the most trustable’ and ‘the truest’.

Who has been put at the top in the list of the most influential persons of the history by Dr. Michael H. Hart in ‘The 100’.

By whose influence and education Umar Ibn Khattab like personality emerged who in his governance used to take night rounds in Medina to confirm that all his subjects are sleeping comfortably, no one being empty stomach. (Today education creates leaders like Barrack Obama and Narendra Modi who only see their stomach and status, rest they are blind!)

By whose influence and education Syed Salah ad-Deen like military ruler emerged who sends fruits and ice and his personal physician to treat Richard, the Lionheart, his fierce opponent, during his illness. (Although today’s civilized world teaches the formula that when someone slaps your right cheek offer him left but they rape innocent Muslim women!)

By whose influence Mullah Mohd Umar like terrorist emerged whose warfare being poor and inefficient, has not submitted to the superpower (as American’s dream!) of the world and has been a single largest cause of America’s destruction.

According to Jules Masserman, a professor at the Chicago University and a US based psychoanalyst, “to judge any the greatest leader of history, he must fulfil three functions:

  1. Provide for the well-being of the led,
  2. Provide a social organisation in which people feel relatively secure, and
  3. Provide them with one set of beliefs."
He then searches history and present and analyzes - Hitler, Pasteur, Caesar, Moses, Confucius and so on, and ultimately concludes:
"Perhaps the greatest leader of all times was Mohammed, who combined all three functions."
