The 2 non-Muslims I admire very much, I had the pleasure of meeting personaly when I was 12 years old. Albert Einstein and Robert Frost. At the time I did not know they were famous.

Their simplicity and humility have influenced many of my life choices.

But, even more than both of them my admiration goes for Brian Desmond, my 6th grade teacher who introduced me to them. He was friends of both of them and they were frequent summer visitors at his house. I would say that because of Brian and the people he introduced me to I developed an insatiable curiosity and a love of learning. For that I admire Brian the most. Although he never achieved fame.

Wow, amu Woodrow.

Undoubtedly Abdul Mutallib and Abu Taalib.

Amongst non Muslims I've met, my K-6 teacher. He was really kind and encouraging, always there to give my parents tips and suggestions.

How about the King of Abyssinian king who sheltered the muhajiroon?

In the modern era Dr Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela amongst the well known...

Amongst the not so well known, i respect each and every one of the non muslims who search for the truth and fight against injustices.

^ He accepted Islam. Although considering he did that while he was non Muslim, that is very admirable.

The scholars differ on that hadith's authenticity i think, and he may have become muslim if he believed that Muhammad (peace be upon him) would be the messenger of Allaah in the future. And Allaah knows best.

This can become a very long list I almost think we need to categorize it into different groups of admiration. we all can find many people we can have respect for. In different situations and different times.

My choice for the most admirable American Politician would be:

Thomas Jefferson, for his tolerance of all religions and his wisdom to place that tolerance as a right in the American Constitution.

I admire Princess Diana...for all that she did for the sick and poor people!!!
However I admire my friend who will soon convert into a Muslim...I had nufin' 2 do wit it...she just became interested in Islam...I gave her some facts...and she decided that she wanted to convert to a muslim.....she says everything is true...even though there aren't enough or strong evidence to justify all topics involved...
Know by the end of this week I guess...she will state what all of us muslims state time after time...Lailahailallah Muhammad arasullullah!!!

i think it is interesting that the people we admire show the virtues we value... our heros tell us more about ourselves than about them...

George Galloway in this era, for his ability to speak the truth in front of anyone.

Abu Talib from the 'khairul quroon' (best of all era's), for his kindness and compassion shown to our beloved prophet (s.a.w.)

Abu Talib, Abdul Muttalib, Najashi (the one who sheltered the muhajiroon), Warraqah bin Naufal, Martin Luther King, Bhagat Singh

May I ask what people see in Che Gueverra? I'm not questioning this because he was a communist but is it not true that he was responsible for so many cuban deaths under the reign of fidel?

Najashi accepted Islam and died as a Muslim, and Sayyidina Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) prayed salaatul ghayb in Madeenah for him as well.

Waraqah ibn Nawfal

Al-Haakim reported with a saheeh isnaad from 'Aa'ishah (may Allaah be pelased with her) that the Messenger of Allaah (salAllaahu alayhi waSalam) said, "Do not slander Waraqah ibn Nawfal for I have seen that he will have one or two gardens in Paradise"

[Saheeh al-Jaami as-Sagheer, 6/1534, no. 7197]


Waraqah believed in the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi waSalam) when Khadeejah brought him to him at the beginning of his Call; he had asked Allaah to let him live until he saw His Messenger so that he could support him. But Waraqah died really soon after the first revelation.

I guess she thought the driver would stop.

The family who lived in that home she was defending were looking after her.
i think she stayed there a few nights and she wrote in her letter to her mother how hospitable they were.

i guess she just wanted to look out for them.??? Allah knows best.
