All these world-renowned scholars have unanimously acknowledged that he is the most extraordinary human being in the world. He is the Master of the world.

George Bernard Shaw praised the character and ideals of the Prophet (peace be upon him). The religion preached by Muhammad (PBUH) has evoked the most reverence in my mind for its tremendous life force. In my opinion, Islam is the only religion that can be considered as the religion of all people of all ages. I have read his biography. He is a wonderful person. In my opinion, he is far from anti-Christian. We can call him the protector of humanity. If the people of different castes, communities, ideologies, and doctrines of the whole world were brought under the dictator’s rule, then only Muhammad (peace be upon him) could lead them to the path of happiness and prosperity as the most capable leader.

He was Keeper of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, from 1909 to 1927. Everything important or trivial in his daily conduct has become a policy to follow, which is still consciously followed by millions of people today. Apart from him, no part of the human race follows him perfectly as a perfect human being. His general forgiveness of the infidel Quraish on the day of Mecca’s bloodless conquest is unparalleled in world history. Surprised by the Prophet’s pardon, the historian Stanley Lenpool wrote: So unimaginable ‘(Stanley Lenpool, Studies in Mecca).

Which are the only truth and the principles that can lead people to prosperity and will be.’
Mahatma Gandhi: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (October 2, 1869 – January 30, 1948) was an Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist, who employed nonviolent resistance to lead the successful campaign for India’s independence from British rule, and in turn, inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He said that, even in the age of prosperity, Islam is tolerant of other religions. Islam is not a religion full of lies. Let Hindus study Islam with devotion and respect. Then they will love Islam like me. The unparalleled simplicity of the word prophet, self-forgetfulness, keeping promises, unwavering faith, unconditional love for disciples and followers, fearlessness, vows of life, and devotion to God have created a place for Islam in the world. Islam was not intolerant in its glorious days. It was able to achieve the respect of the world. The priesthood is no more; the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) soon broke the priesthood’s magic. There was no need in Islam for a mediator between Allah and man. From the beginning, it was a democratic religion. Everyone had the right to enter through the recitation of the Qur’an. What is explained in the divine word is free without any restriction in religious meetings. In this respect, Islam did not feel the need for any reform similar to Christianity. The fact that Islam’s democratic concept has become predominant in Christianity began with the rise of nationalism and the sixteenth-century religious revolution. The integrity of the religion preached by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Simplicity, Justice, and its revolutionary democratic system, equality, and the principle of justice inspire the people of the neighboring states.
Because for a long time, the ordinary people of those states were being oppressed, exploited, and persecuted by the ruling class on the one hand, and on the other hand, the new system was being handed over to them by the pope. He was the direction of liberation. Islam liberated Europe from the darkness of the Middle Ages, and with it came the glorious monuments of modern civilization. In the book Women in Islam (1930), Muhammad (peace be upon him) wrote that the three things he called his favorites were: Namaz, Khubbo, and Nari. He respected women. In a society where men would bury daughters alive after birth, Muhammad (peace be upon him) gave women the right to live. The way she has protected the rights of women is unparalleled in the history of world law.

In his unique language, ‘Since the beginning of the world, this Arab nation has wandered in the desert as a new, unknown shepherd nation. Then a prophet of religion was sent there with a message that they could understand, and just like magic, that infamous nation became world-famous; the religionless country became the best in the world. Then, within a century, Arab domination was established from Granada in the west to Delhi in the east.

He is the one who brought the brotherhood of humanity to all the people of the world. He is the man sent by God.
Scholar Montgomery Waite: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
In his book Mohammed in Mecca, Montgomery Waite says, Enduring all kinds of hardships to establish his ideals, the high character traits of those who believed in him and followed him as a leader, and the enormity of Muhammad’s achievements – all testify to his honesty. Suppose Muhammad is a dishonest person who has created more problems than solutions. Moreover, no other historical figure has been so underestimated in the West as Muhammad, not only based on what has been narrated but also based on what has been described. If we want to understand Muhammad even a little, we must judge him with the necessary honesty and fairness. If we’re going to correct the mistakes we have inherited from our past, it must not be forgotten that the final proof is a much tougher condition than what appears to be true. And it will be challenging to get evidence in this regard.

He said of the Prophet (peace be upon him): ‚Muhammad (peace be upon him) in his short life founded a nation and religion from among the insignificant nations whose geographical influence surpassed that of Christians and Jews. A large part of humanity still follows him today. He changed the Arab country’s condition with his gentle manner, unparalleled politeness, and excellent education. He won the hearts of people through greatness, empathy, and generosity. He established the kingdom of justice. He never abandoned the path of righteousness and virtue. He did not break his promise or deceive anyone. Even his lifelong enemies, who drove him out of the country and angered the entire Arab nation against him, forgave them instead of avenging the final victory. He never punished anyone out of personal resentment. Even though he was the ruler of the whole country, he lived a life of poverty as before. As a result, he left nothing for his successors at the time of his death.”

Poet John Milton, the poet of Paradise Lost, Long before Constantine’s time, most Christians had lost much of their primitive purity and righteousness. Later, when the church prospered, they were rooted in the love of honor and anarchist power, and Christianity was on the verge of collapse. Muhammad (peace be upon him) originated in the 6th century and eradicated paganism from most parts of Asia, Africa, and Egypt, all of which still worship one Holy God. The most unequivocal evidence of Muhammad’s theology can be found in the minds of proponents. He has prevented Anna from descending to the level of imagination. They have remained free from orthodoxy and superstition without tarnishing God’s enlightened form by any visible idol. I believe in one God and the Messenger of God, Muhammad (peace be upon him). This is the simple, unchanging declaration of Islam.

He did not stop loving the poor but made arrangements to pay zakat. If this program is taken as the regulator of national life, then surely poverty will disappear from human society.

Give me space at your feet.” From this, it is understood that those who misunderstood the Prophet fourteen hundred years ago are now seeking forgiveness. Still, in the case of today’s non-Muslim scholars, the opposite will certainly not be the case.

The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) was the only person who taught the message of truth and equality to the human race by eliminating the high and low differences.

Redrand C.I. Taylor: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
He said that Muhammad endured slavery as a necessary loss, as did Moses and St. Paul. It is a very weak first, much more vulnerable than the Negro-slavery in the United States in the hands of the Muslims. Polygamy is a difficult question. Moses allowed it. It was observed by David and is not directly prohibited in the Bible. Muhammad restricted the unlimited permissions of polygamy.

Apart from his vast and charming personality, he cannot be separated from other Muslims.
N. N. Bray: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad

He said the conquest of Mecca is an excellent example of the admirable character of Muhammad. The past abuse of the Makkans to him Should have been naturally aroused, But he restrained the army from all bloodshed. He humbly expressed his gratitude to Allah for showing great victory. Only ten or twelve people are punished for their past heinous crimes. Four of them were sentenced to death. It is more humane than the other winners. During Jerusalem’s occupation in 1099, the Christian Crusaders brutally killed 70,000 Muslim women, children, and the helpless.

His main goal was to establish an ideological state rather than a worldly rule. As a result, he left nothing for his family.
Professor C.H. Baker: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad

Through such humane behaviour, Muhammad (peace be upon him) has left his eternal message to the Muslim people and the world.
George Cell: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
The English translator of the Holy Qur’an wrote about the wise Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) – a man of good character, a symbol of good manners, humble manners, kindness to the poor, a kind smile, a forgiving attitude towards enemies and, above all, the supreme sacrifice in the name of God. Man’s spiritual path has guided man’s whole life. And that is why he could inspire the idolatrous Arab society to surrender to one God by believing in one God.

Muhammad (peace be upon him) himself did not know how to write anything. For this work, he used to employ an eminent writer. His illiteracy did not prevent him from compiling the most famous rhetorical book in Arabic. Such mastery of human management is not very common even among highly educated people.
Scholar and Saint Master Das: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
Prominent Hindu saint scholar Master Das Said, Many features are observed in the Prophet Muhammad SAAW. When I notice them, I want to praise him spontaneously. It was enough if he did nothing but teach the worship of God and equality. This is why the whole world used to lay wreaths at his feet. But when his teachings include monotheism, godliness, righteousness, honesty, holiness, love, courtesy, and femininity, there can be nothing but hesitation in his praise and hatred of inferiority.
James S. Missionar: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
A well-known American author, James S. Missionar, in an article in Reader Digest, entitled “Islam the Misunderstood Religion” in the June 1955 issue, said that Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was born in 570 AD into an Arab dynasty that worshiped puppets. Orphan Muhammad (peace be upon him) from his birth always gave alms to the poor, needy, widows, and orphans and spoke on behalf of slaves and the oppressed. At the age of 20, he became a successful businessman and soon became the director of the camel herd of a wealthy widow. When he reached 25, a woman 15 years older than him, in recognition of his wisdom, proposed marriage to him. Muhammad (peace be upon him) married her and served her as a devoted husband as long as the woman was alive. Like almost all his previous prophets, he wanted to be relieved of the responsibility of preaching the religion of God, considering his incompetence. But the angel instructed ‘read.’ As far as we know, Muhammad (PBUH) knew nothing of reading or writing; But he began to read those provocative words – which in a short time radically changed a massive part of the world and that is – ‘Creator One.’
H. O. Armstrong: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
The author of the book “Lord of Arabia” is the famous author Mr. Armstrong writes that the Arabs, opposed to cruelty, barbarism, strife, and hospitality, were then unknown to the rest of the world and one country time. Both villagers and nomadic Bedouins had to work hard to make a living. They were ruthless, uncivilized, unclean, inferior, addicted to bad habits, idolaters, and superstitious. Sex life was ultimately adulterous and divided into small clans. Every tribe was always in conflict. Suddenly, a great man was born. His name is Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). Islam is his religion. Islam united the Arab people, sanctified them, and strengthened them in one faith. His power continued to multiply. Within ten years, he had established control over the entire Arab world.
C. W. Linter: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
Great scholar, In his book Mohammedanism (Lahore – 1973), Linter says the Mohammed himself never spoke of finalizing anything. What he says is in the name of his Creator.

Arthur Gray Leonard: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad

Dr. Gestauli: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
He made it clear in his book, Arab Civilization, that the Prophet of Islam’s history is astonishing. He subdued in one voice the unruly nation which could not be brought under his control by any great power at that time. Then take that nation to a level through which the superpowers are shattered. Even today, that Prophet stands in the grave and keeps millions of God’s servants steadfast on the word of Islam.
John Devinport: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
In 1870, John Devinport wrote the book Apology for Muhammad and the Qur’an. In the introduction to the book, he wrote, “There is no doubt that there is not a single one of all the legislators and conquerors whose biography is more detailed and true than that of Muhammad (peace be upon him).”

In 1874, Reverend Bosworth Smith, a fellow at Oxford Trinity College, gave a lecture on “Muhammad (PBUH)” and “Mohammedanism” at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, which was later published in book form. In it, Mr Reverend says, “What is generally true about religion is, unfortunately, also true of these three religions and their promoters. We know very little about the early workers of the religion, and we probably know a lot more about those who later combined their labour with their own. But every object of Islam is unique. There is no ambiguity and mystery here. We know as much about Muhammad (PBUH) as we do about Milton and Luther. We are aware of every aspect of the external life of Muhammad (PBUH). We have a book, Al-Quran. No one has ever had a reasonable doubt about the integrity of the content discussed in this book. That is this Al-Quran, which is free from general artificiality, unorganized, full of contradictions. Voltaire said, “No man is a hero to his valet,” means “no man can be a hero in his own house.” But according to Bosworth Smith, “this principle is not true, at least not for the Prophet of Islam.”
Historian Godfrey Higgins: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
Godfrey Higgins (January 30, 1772, in Owston, Yorkshire – August 9, 1833, in Cambridge) was an English magistrate and landowner, a prominent advocate for social reform and antiquarian. The famous historian Godfrey Higgins wrote in Apology for Muhammad, “It would be perfect if Christians would remember that the prophethood of Muhammad (PBUH) caused such intoxication in the minds of his followers that it is pointless to look among the early followers of Jesus.” When Jesus was crucified, his followers fled. Their religious intoxication subsided, and they relocated, leaving their respected leader chained to death. On the other hand, Muhammad’s followers (peace be upon him) gathered around their oppressed Prophet (peace be upon him) and risked their lives and property for safety and defeated the enemy.
Educationist Annie Besant: Non-Muslim views about Muhammad
Annie Besant (née Wood; October 1, 1847 – September 20, 1933) was a British socialist, theosophist, women’s rights activist, writer, orator, educationist, and philanthropist. He was regarded as a champion of human freedom. She wrote about Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). ‘In the darkness, he was light, and we find his life so great and so authentic that we can feel why he was chosen to carry the word of the Lord to the people around him. The reason for the misery of Islam is that the followers of Islam are unfit for its founder.
In conclusion, we can say, If a person with a personality like the Prophet (peace be upon him) could take the lead in the modern world, he would pull out all the solutions to the problems of the present world. Who was fully capable of bringing many hopes and aspirations and happiness and peace to the people. This is why it is called “ISLAM IS THE COMPLETE CODE OF LIFE.” There is no doubt that the proposed divine law directed by Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) is timeless and that he was the most useful thinker of all time.
