List of Ten All-Time Influential People
1. Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the most influential person the world has ever seen. He is the founder of Christianity, a religion practiced in all corners (and curves) of the world. His life was a tale of sacrifice and his teachings inspired many a later sacrifice. Jesus Christ is also known to many as the Jesus of Nazareth. His influence on mankind can be weighed merely by the fact that the entire New Testament was based on his life. Christians believe that Jesus bled on the Cross to wash away their sins.
2. Prophet Mohammad
Prophet Mohammad was one of the most influential people in history, just like Jesus Christ. We find the evidence in the vast multitude of people who practice Islam throughout the world. The books describe him as the true, only and last prophet to be sent on Earth by Allah. Aside being the founder of one of the most practiced religions of the world, Mohammad was also a great social reformist, philanthropist and military leader. Most Muslims believe that the angel Gabriel delivered the Quran to the Prophet, who passed it on to his many followers.
