    Racism issues

    Report bad ads?

    Unfortunately the people in my community are very backward. From constant displays of racism or when confronted about it, they deny it. The fact they keep making fun of my people and they are muslims it hurts. I thought islam was all about equality yet these people think they are superior. My friend told he went to his friends house and when his mother and her friend were talking, they were making fun of my people as a choice of spouse for their daughter. I mean how arrogant can they get? Now I'm scared that because they act this way, does this mean the prophet Muhammad saw may not love me because I'm not an Arab? Because I'm feel inferior and constantly put down by these people. People say not all of them are bad but I feel like an outsider. My mother is getting angry at me for going to the mosque. I respect my mother and I think I cannot go to the mosque no longer because of the fitnah these people cause. From constant jokes and taunting to openinly saying they want me to fail so I can never leave. They dont want me to leave so they can use me. Sadly my judge of character is so bad I can not tell who is sincere or fake. This is why I keep getting conned and fooled out of. It's not like I can talk to the imam about it because he will just sweep it under the table. How can think my people are bad? I mean are all muslims not brothers and sisters of adam? Yet they all think they have an automatic ticket to jannah. I do not know if this is because is all happening because Allah is angry with me or if I'm genuinely being wronged by these people. Many these people who think their daughters are high merchandise, are so arrogant then later complain there are no "good men" for their daughter when in reality they themselves are so racist and arrogant.

    I remember one of them even straight up called me a hindu. I have been going longer to the mosque but as soon a young person from one of them comes, everyone rushes to greet them but does not even acknowledge me. I'm not looking for praise or anything. But respect as a human being is all I want yet sadly these people treat me like third class citizen

    Re: Racism issues

    I have to constantly fight every urge not to make dua against them to the point where it just drives me insane and feel no justice

    How can a person whom Allah has sent as mercy to mankind hate people who are not arab???

    Abu Nadrah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said during the middle of the day at the end of the pilgrimage, “O people, your Lord is one and your father Adam is one. There is no favor of an Arab over a foreigner, nor a foreigner over an Arab, and neither white skin over black skin, nor black skin over white skin, except by righteousness. Have I not delivered the message?” They said, “The Messenger of Allah has delivered the message.”
    Source: Musnad Aḥmad 22978
    Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Ibn Taymiyyah

    A person who has taqwa is superior to these who have no taqwa or lower taqwa. Perhaps you have more taqwa than these people, you might be superior to them in sight of your Lord. Allah knows best

    You are really living in so much oppressed area, I suggest that if you have money, and become patient, you should move to other friendly muslim In sha Allah, there's nothing wrong with that. Prophet peace be upon him's early followers did migrate to Abynssina which was first hijrah. An Christian king was just toward them, he gave them protection and refused to hand them back to Quraysh. Leave these people alone to be judged by Allah. There are two hadiths

    Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet said: “He who has done a wrong that affects his brother's honour or anything else, let him ask his forgiveness today before the time (i.e., the Day of Resurrection) when he will have neither a Deenaar nor a Dirham. (On that Day), if he has done some good deeds, a portion equal to his wrongdoings will be subtracted from them; but if he has no good deeds, he will be burdened with the evil deeds of the one he had wronged in the same proportion.” [Al-Bukhari]

    Abu Hurayrah reported: “The Messenger of Allah said: “Do you know who is the bankrupt one?” The people said: ‘The bankrupt among us is the one who has neither money nor property.’ He said: “The real bankrupt one of my nation would be he who would come on the Day of Resurrection having (performed) prayers, (observed) fasting and (spent in) charity, (but he will find himself bankrupt on that Day due to depleting these good deeds) because he despised others, uttered slanderous terms against others, unlawfully devoured the wealth of others, shed the blood of others, and beat others. Therefore his good deeds would be credited to the account of those (who suffered at his hand). If his good deeds are exhausted, their sins (i.e., those he oppressed) will be entered in his account and he will be thrown into the (Hell) Fire.” [Muslim]

    You have your rights to make duas against the opppressors, nothing wrong with that, my brother.

    In another narration, the Prophet of Allah said: "There are three persons whose supplications are never rejected: The just leader, the fasting person when he breaks his fast, and the oppressed when he supplicates and whose supplication is raised above the clouds and the gates of heaven are opened for it, and (to whom) Allah will say: 'By My Glory! I shall assist you, even if it is after a while.'" [At-Tirmithi]


    Mu`ath reported that the Messenger of Allah dispatched him (as governor of Yemen) and instructed him thus: “Beware of the supplication of the oppressed, for there is no barrier between it and Allah.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

    It is very dangerous to oppresse people because the supplication of the opressseed has no barrier.

    This is serious matter, you need to respect your parents. I told you to perform prayers in your home, Allah knows your intention. Allah doesn't want to put any difficulties in you, so your mother is right, because you are putting yourself in troubles... You are suffering from mental problems as you told us before, so stay in your home and perform prayers in it, nothing wrong with that, my brother. Allah has told us to respect our parents. Taking care of parents is better than going for jihad.

    Sahih Bukhari 3004
    Narrated `Abdullah bin `Amr:

    A man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) asking his permission to take part in Jihad. The Prophet (ﷺ) asked him, "Are your parents alive?" He replied in the affirmative. The Prophet (ﷺ) said to him, "Then exert yourself in their service."



    Abdullah ibn Mas’ud reported: I asked, “O Messenger of Allah, which deed is best?” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Prayer in its proper time.” I asked, “What is next?” The Prophet said, “Good treatment of your parents.” I said, “What is next?” The Prophet said, “Jihad in the way of Allah.” I became silent and if I had asked him more, he would have told me.
    Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 2630, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 85
    Grade: Muttafaqun Alayhi (authenticity agreed upon) according to Al-Bukhari and Muslim




    You should always respect your parents as long as their orders are not sinful. and if it is sinful, don't act harsh, act gently with them. This was even ordered by Allah in Quran




    Sahih International

    But if they endeavor to make you associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them but accompany them in [this] world with appropriate kindness and follow the way of those who turn back to Me [in repentance]. Then to Me will be your return, and I will inform you about what you used to do.

    Surah Luqman 31:15



    Don't let yourself get hurt. Ask Allah to help you, grant you strength against the oppressors.

    Re: Racism issues

    Asalamualykum

    Young brother go to the masjid even if people are pointing guns at you.

    Why O Why are you letting a selective few dictate your life? your thinking? your actions? and ultimately your jannah? Subhana Allah!!!

    This is an excellent training ground for you. Why don't YOU change your tactics?

    Why don't you take a trusted brother with you?

    Why don't you change the topic?

    Why don't you smile even though you are hurting?

    Why don't you sit amongst people who have true emaan and ikhlaaq?

    Why don't you speak to imaam?

    If you feel strong challenge them intellectually.

    I can say change masjids but the same thing can happen. So change your mindset brother and grow stronger.

    Expect to be hurt in this dunya.

    Jannah will wipe away all our problems. Insha Allah.

    Be respectful. Be kind. Don't copy they behaviour.

    Allah the Most Just, The Most Kind is with you Ameen

    Re: Racism issues

    Walkum salaam baraka tu
    I spoke to the imam and voiced my concerns. He said the house of allah is for everyone. Even if people misbehave , i should ignore and focus on Allah. The imam says that my past and few racist incidents should not let me stop coming or stereotype everyone. I was not trying to accuse anyone but I honestly did not feel welcomed but the imam believes people do like me and I just avoid the ones who dont

    Re: Racism issues

    It's not all of them. Some of them are good but the ones who have been rude are not very kind and welcoming. The imam says ignore them as they will be everywhere. It just disgusts me how they think they are superior but I suppose I should get this mentality out of my head as well
