Islam Rejects Racism

We often hear that today's world is very modern and developed but even today humanity is facing many serious problems like it was facing in the past. One of these problem which exist even today all around the world is Racism. Even today many Blacks and Whites hate each other and considers themselves above than people of other races. Just today i heard a news that a white women refused to sit with a black man in a plane.

Our Beautiful religion Islam completely rejects the Racism. Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW taught us 1430 years ago that " All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action."

This saying of Prophet SAW makes it clear that every human no matter he is white, black, Arab or Non Arab is equal. Only that human is better who do good deeds. If we see history of Islam we find that Islam brought people of all races together. Hazrat Bilal Habshi who was a black man and a slave of a Jew Umayya Bin Khalf. After he got freed he became one of the most important Companion of Prophet Muhammad SAW. There are so many verses of Holy Quran which rejects racism. May Allah SWT save us all from Racism and make us brothers of each other.
