Introduction

Islam’, which literally means ‘peace’ in Arabic, has been transformed into a faith interpreted loosely by one group and understood conservatively by another, making it seem as if Islam itself is not well comprehended by its followers. Today, it is the faith of 1.2 billion people across the world; Asia is a home for 60 per cent of these adherents, with Muslims forming an absolute majority in 11 countries (Selth 2003:5).

In our Holy Quran, it is clearly stated that:

Al-Hujraat O mankind! We have created you from male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware. (13)

 

  1. We set you up as nations and tribes so that you may be able to recognize each other” (49:13).
  2. The division of human beings into nations, races, groups and tribes is for the sake of distinction, so that people of one race or tribe may meet and be acquainted with the people belonging to another race or tribe and co-operate with one another.
  3. This division of the human race is neither meant for one nation to take pride in its superiority over others nor is it meant for one nation to treat another with contempt or disgrace, or regard them as a mean and degraded race and usurp their rights.
  4. Indeed, the noblest among you before God are the most heedful of you (49:13).

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in addressig the Farewell Hajj_

  1. “No Arab has any superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab.
  2. Nor does a white man have any superiority over a black man or the black man any superiority over the white man.
  3. You are all the children of Adam, and Adam was created from clay” (al-Bayhaqi and al-Bazzaz).
  4. “Do not argue with the people of the Book (Christians and Jews) unless it is in the politest manners” (29:46)

I am a mixed blooded person, so what? Pure blooded race is Myth or Illusion of IDIOTS only! There is no pure race in the world.
