Answer . Arguments can be made for Abraham, Moses, Jesus of Nazareth and Mohammed, being behind the three "Great Religions" and thus still influencing societies across the whole world. The more expansionist Roman emperors could also be counted, as could Charlemagne, progenitor of the Enlighte…nment in Europe. After that, the influence becomes more regionalised - Christopher Columbus in North America, Simon de Bolivar in South America, Peter the Great in Russia. In the 19th Century, to drift from the question slightly, Queen Victoria of Great Britain was very influential - although the idea of her rather than the woman herself was more powerful. In the 20th Century, the most influential people have probably been Lenin, Hitler and Stalin - creators of ideological systems; of these three, Hitler and Stalin were more influential, because we still today live in a world created by them. Hitler's war and defeat created the situation where the USA became the world's policeman; Stalin gave them someone to be fearful of and a system that perpetuated itself very well for 50 years. Of these two, Hitler is the more noticeably influential today because of his evil persecution of the Jewish population in Europe being directly responsible for the creation of Israel and the difficulties in the whole region that Israel's justifiable existence causes. From another point of view, Ronald MacDonald could be seen as the most influential. The surplus of calories and the lifestyle he represents was, in the end, more attractive than comprehensive healthcare and full employment in the communist countries; the poor developing countries of the world now wish to be rich, not to have healthcare and lower infant mortality, but to have the lifestyle the MacDonald's symbolises. But for straight marks, you'd probably go for Abraham - much more than half of the world believe in his teachings, and even those that don't largely live in countries with legal systems based upon Abrahamic religion.

Answer 1 Everywhere! Ironically, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the United States, Canada, and the UK! The largest Muslim country is Indonesia, and the largest Muslim population (in either a Muslim or a non Muslim country) is India. So, Islam is influential outside of the traditional "Mu…slim world", or the Arabic-speaking nations. Answer 2 Islam influences everyone, Christians, Jews, Atheists, Muslims, because Islam is a "Deen" (Meaning Religion or a way of life in Arabic). Many Christians in Arab countries are highly influenced by Islam since they live in a country with a majority of Muslims, even though 80% of Muslims aren't Arab and live worldwide. Islam isn't specific on a group or a culture or any specific thing, it's opened for everyone to read about it and learn about it. Answer 3 Contrary to Answers 1 & 2, the question is not asking where Islam happens to be influential, but where it is most influential. Islam has a direct effect on politics, general beliefs, societal construction, and legal codes in the Middle East, in South Asia (aside from India), and Northern Africa, and Indonesia. Islam certainly does affect the rest of the world, but its affect is less substantial. (MORE)

What is Islam?: The name of the religion is Islam, which comes from an Arabic root word meaning "peace" and "submission." Islam teaches that one can only find peace in one's life by submitting to Almighty God (Allah) in heart, soul and deed. The same Arabic root word gives us "Salaam alaykum," ("Pea…ce be with you"), the universal Muslim greeting. Who is a Muslim?: A person who believes in and consciously follows Islam is called a Muslim, also from the same root word. So, the religion is called "Islam," and a person who believes in and follows it is a "Muslim.". What is the difference between Muslim , Moslem and Islamic ? . How Many and Where?: Islam is a major world religion, with over 1 billion followers worldwide (1/5 of the world population).

Although usually associated with the Arabs of the Middle East, less than 10% of Muslims are in fact Arab. Muslims are found all over the world, of every nation, color and race.. Muslim population of the world . Who is Allah?: Allah is the proper name for Almighty God, and is often translated merely as "God." Allah has other names that are used to describe His characteristics: the Creator, the Sustainer, the Merciful, the Compassionate, etc.. Muslims believe that since Allah alone is the Creator, it is He alone that deserves our devout love and worship. Islam holds to a strict monotheism.

With the conflict between Germany and France fighting over Europe, World War I began, especially due to the tension created from the result of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870. Germany wanted power and dominance over Europe, while France was looking for equivalency of power. America then got involved… in order to make sure that no country would gain total control over Europe to prevent any threats to the United States security and economy. The United States began to support Allies by increasing trade and also beginning to lend money with them. The declaration of war on Germany in 1917 was mostly influenced by German naval policy, although American economic interest and Woodrow Wilson's idealism did portray a part. On February 1915, Germans created a submarine blockade in the British Empire's Ocean's, sinking several belligerent ships, which included the Lusitania. The United States then threatened the German Government causing them to back down. Later in February of 1917, Germany then declared unrestricted submarine warfare threatening the ideals of neutrality, commerce and security. The German U-Boats wanted to sink supply ships in order to starve the Britain islands of their goods. The German's naval policy was the major reason why the United States declared war on Germany. The sinking of the Lusitania was the biggest influence of American in WWI. It was so much of an influence that it was said without the sinking of the Lusitania, the United States most likely would not of entered the war. Another reason for the entrance in the war was the American economic interest. Although it did influence the entrance of the United States in the war, it did not have such an impact that the German naval policy displayed. The United States had big economic investments with countries that were involved in the war such as Britain and France. If the United States would of lost these investments, they would not of been able to pay the debt back of two million dollars. If Allies would not of been able to pay back loans made by American bankers, the United State's economy could of collapses. France and England were financing their war with American loans and buying mass amounts of firearms from the United States on credit. The United States wanted to make sure they got paid back. America then made sure that the Allies won in order to prevent the collapses of their economy, even if it mean entering the war themselves. Woodrow Wilson's ideals also played a role of America's decision to declare war on Germany. Wilson wanted to make the world safe for democracy and addressed this through his War Address to Congress. From Germany sinking the Lusitania, American's grew hatred towards Germany, hence giving Wilson the motivation to declare war on Germany. Although the German naval policy was the most influence on the war, it was not the only part. America also joined the war efforts in order to fight for the freedom against Germany. The United States may have let the Lusitania go down in history without a fight, but a moral sense had developed in Britain and France giving the United States motivation to declare war on Germany. The German naval policy, American economic interest and Woodrow Wilson's idealism may have all caused the United States to declare war on Germany, but the major reason as to why war was declared onto Germany was the German naval policy. Without the dominance of German's in the British Isles trying to prevent goods from entering and the sinking of the Lusitania, the United States could not help but fight in the war efforts with all of the motivation created from the hatred towards the Germans.

The Ancient Hellenic (Greek) civilizations. They gave us the ideas of a republic and governance as well as learning and philosophy. They laid the foundations of modern science and gave birth to modern maths, logic, and the concept of a mathematic proof. However the Greek civilization is said to have… been greatly influenced in the beginning by Ancient Egypt. If we are looking at inventions many other civilizations have contributed such as Ancient China who gave us paper, gunpowder and many other. Mesopotamia gave us the wheel. It is difficult to say that one civilization was the most influential because most of them are interrelated. However it is generally accepted that Ancient Greece experienced a "Golden Age" during which extraordinary advancements where made in all the main aspects of modern civilization. (MORE)

Tough question! My pick would be Josquin des Prez, because his style became the template--four or more parts in distinct ranges, sophisticated imitative counterpoint, and careful expression of the text through rhythm, phrasing, and overall form. He also explored further into extended chromaticism th…an most before him (as in the motet "Fili mi Absalon"), and in addition to his sacred music had a distinct popular style (as in "Mille regretz" or "Grillo") that was perhaps a forerunner of the madrigal. But this is assuming we're talking about "the most influential on the Renaissance"--his impact on music of that era was huge, but his personal fame didn't last into the following centuries. If you're looking for the Renaissance composer who had the most influence on the following eras, I'd argue for Palestrina, because his music became the gold standard for Catholic sacred music, for contrapuntal choral music in general, and is the basis for the traditional "species" method of teaching counterpoint even today.

In my opinion, John Locke was the most influential enlightenment thinker because of his opinions of people's freedoms and government's role in society. His take on the social-contract theory shaped our government and his ideals are reflected in the Declaration of Independence. He thought the governm…ent ruled by permission of the people, and if the government was intruding on our inalienable rights, (life,libery,property) then we have a right to overthrow or change the government.

He was a deeply spiritual man, and often spent time in meditation on Mount Hira. The traditional story of the Qur'an tells how one night in 610 he was meditating in a cave on the mountain when he was visited by the angel Jibreel who ordered him to recite . Once Jibreel mentioned the name of Allah, Muhammad began to recite words which he came to believe were the words of God. The Qur'an During the rest of his life Muhammad continued to receive these revelations. The words were remembered and recorded, and form the text of the Holy Qu'ran, the Muslim scripture. Preaching Believing that God had chosen him as his messenger Muhammad began to preach what God had revealed to him. The simple and clear-cut message of Islam, that there is no God but Allah, and that life should be lived in complete submission to the will of Allah, was attractive to many people, and they flocked to hear it. The Hijrah Muhammad's popularity was seen as threatening by the people in power in Mecca, and Muhammad took his followers on a journey from Mecca to Medina in 622. This journey is called the Hijrah (migration) and the event was seen as so important for Islam that 622 is the year in which the Islamic calendar begins. The return to Mecca Within ten years Muhammad had gained so many followers that he was able to return and conquer Mecca. From this time on he was generally accepted by the faithful as the true final Prophet of God. Muhammad continued to lead his community both spiritually and in earthly matters until his death in 632.
