Racism is one of the most ruthless and problematic aspect of Human
Racism is basically a feeling of Superiority of that one feel over
another, Who is of different Ethnicity and colour, The Dictionary defines racism as ”Discriminatory” behaviour towards member of other
races, So friends, how does Islam view racism??
The Holy Qur’an itself cuts the very roots of racism in these words:
”O Mankind! It is we (Allah) who created you out of a pair and it is we who have made you into nations as tribe, so that you may recognise each other (not that you despise earth’s other) Verily, the most noblest of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous amongst you” (Surah 49: verse
Alhamdulillah, Islam promotes absolute unity among all races, The prophet Muhammad Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam said:
”Allah doesn’t look at your Shapes or Colour Rather, Allah looks at your hearts (intentions) and deeds”(Bukhari)
Thus, we can see that Islam is Antidote to racism,
No ”Chosen People”
No ”Caste System”
No ”Gentiles” Nothing,
Its Common Sense that we all are Childrens of Adam Alaihissalaam irrespective of our Colours and Ethnicity but still other religions had divided its people into caste systems, untouchables, tribe wise etc,many people converted to Islam because of such Human-friendly rules,this again proves that Islam is the religion of TRUTH and HAQQ.
In His Last Khutbah (Sermon) Our Master Nabi e Kareem Prophet Muhammad e Mustafa Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam Declared: ”An Arab has no superiority over a Non Arab and Non Arab has no superiority over an Arab, also a white has no superiority over black, nor black has superiority over a white except by piety and good deeds (Musnad Ahmed 411/5)
