Allah the Almighty, did not create dark or light skin as a tool of discrimination, but as a sign to realise His creative might & to appreciate the beauty in diversity of His creation.

[emoji1534]ONCE Sayyadina Abu Dharr reproached Bilal about his mother, saying, “O son of a black woman!”

Sayyadina Bilal went to the Messenger of Allah, (saw), and he told him what he said. The Prophet became angry and then Abu Dharr came, although he was unaware of what Bilal told him. The Prophet turned away from him and Abu Dharr asked,
“O Messenger of Allah, have you turned away because of something you have been told?”

The Prophet said, “Have you reproached Bilal about his mother? By the one who revealed the Book to Muhammad, none is more virtuous over another except by righteous deeds. You have none but an insignificant amount.”

[emoji25]This rebuke had a profound effect on Sayyadina Abu Dharr, who then put his head on the ground swearing that he would not raise it until Bilal had put his foot over it.

Among the noble companions were Salman (Persian), Suhayb (Roman /Greek).The Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi wasallam said: :You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian slave whose head looked like a raisin" (Bukhari).

[emoji288]These incidents demonstrate that tribal ties have no place in Islam. Muslims are commanded to stick together and not to disassociate themselves from each other just because they come from different tribes.

[emoji165]This is what changed the heart of a racist Malcolm X when he performed Hajj in Makkah,
# brought Muhammad Ali boxer to Islam,
# still attracts the untouchables of India towards Islam.
# This convinced historian Professor A.J. Toynbee in 1948 to say : "The extinction of race consciousness as between Muslims is one of the outstanding achievements of Islam, and in the contemporary world there is, as it happens, a crying need for the propagation of this Islamic virtue."

[emoji362]Abu Moosa al-Ash’ari radiyallahu anhu said : “I heard the Messenger of Allaah (saw) : ‘Allaah created Adam from a handful that He gathered from the entire earth, so the sons of Adam come like the earth.Some of them are red, some are white, some are black and some are in between. Some of them are easy, some of them are difficult, some are evil and some are good.”( al-Tirmidhi).

Gathering from all these ahadith, we learn that NATIONALISM is a completely alien and forbidden ideology in Islam. OUR Prophet Mohammad (saw) said: “ ….. Leave it, It is Rotten " (Bukhari).

It is narrated by Abu Daud that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said,
"He is not one us who calls for `Asabiyah, (nationalism/tribalism) or who fights for `Asabiyah or who dies for `Asabiyah."

" ...People should give up their pride in nations because this is a coal from the coals of hell-fire. If they do not give this up Allah (swt) will consider them lower than a lowly worm which pushes itself through khur (feces)." [Tirmidhi].

MAY ALLAH SAVE US FROM ALL TYPES OF DISCRIMINATION WHICH LEADS TO NATIONALISM .... MUSLIMS BELONG TO ONE UMMAH , NOT TO THE HUNDREDS OF SUBDIVISIONS WE HAVE CREATED FOR OURSELVES
