"... A mass of details in the early sources show that he was an honest and upright man who has gained the respect and loyalty of others who wre like-wise honest and upright men."
GEORGE BERNARD SHAW said about him:
"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 esteem because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that esteem capacity to the changing phase of exixtence, which can make itself appeal to every age."
"I have studied him - the wonderful man, and in my opinion far from being an anti Christ, he must be called the Savior of Humanity."
"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 wolud 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 as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today."
