What they say about Muhammad?

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? 
Mohammad established a system based upon true and immortal ideology. Is there any like he? 
-- Alphonse Lamartine, French historian and philosopher,  Historie de la Turquie, Paris


Philosopher, Orator, Apostle, Legislator, Warrior, Conqueror of ideas, the Restorer of rational beliefs, the Preacher of a religion without images, the Founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one heavenly Empire, that is Muhammad. As regards all standards [I repeat, "ALL"] by which human 
greatness may be measured, we may well ask, "Is there any man greater than he?" 
-- Alphonse Lamartine


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.
-- Michael H. Hart, The 100, American Astrophysicist

Leaders must fulfill three functions; provide for the 
well-being of the led, provide a social organization in which people feel relatively secure, provide them with one set of beliefs. People like Pasteur and Salk are leaders in the first sense. People like Gandhi and Confucius, on one hand, and Alexander, Caesar and Hitler on the other, are leaders in the second and perhaps the third sense. Jesus and Buddha belong in the third category alone. Perhaps the greatest leader of all times was Mohammed, who combined all three functions. To a lesser degree, Moses did the same. 
--Jules Masserman, Professor of History and Psychoanalyst
