Assalamu Alaikum, Is there a superiority of a race in Islam?

The Answer

Wa Alaikum Assalam wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh,

No, absolutely not. As a matter of face, equality between races have never been states so clearly than in Islam more than 1400 years ago. Here are excepts from the Quran and the Sayings of the Prophet:


Quote from the Quraan:

"O mankind! We...made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other)." (The Qur'an 49:13)


Quotes from Prophet Muhammad SAAWS:

"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." (The last Sermon of Prophet Muhammad) 

"The best of you is he (or she) who is of most benefit to others." 

"All creatures are Allah (God's dependents) and the most beloved to Alla (God), among them, is he who does good to God's dependents."
