22_ RACIAL AND TRIBAL ADVANTAGES REJECTED
WE BELIEVE that all the prophets, cspecially our prophet Mohammad, admitted no Racial or Tribal advantages for any one. To them, all the races, nations languages, and color of skin, were of equalvalue and at the same rank:_
"O MANKIND ! We have created you all, from a male and a female; and made you into nations and tribes so that you may know each other. The most honoured among you all, in the sight of Allah is the most virtuous one. Allah is Al knowing. Al awrare.
THE HOLY QUR?N _ S49: 13
We have a famouse tradition that Mohmmad was in MONA during the performance of the rites of pilgrimage (HAJ). He made a speach for an audience while he was on his camel. He said,
"O PEOPLE! Know that your God is only one; and all of you are the descendants of one father. No Arab has any superiority over a non_Arab and vice versa; Neither a black is better than that with a redskin, except for their PIETY. Do you all fallow me? "Yes we all understood," said the audiance. "Then let those who are present," continued the Messenger of God:" convey that to those who are absent."
