There is no honour except by Islam

The Leader of the Believers, Umar bin Al-Khattaab (May Allah be pleased with him) said: "We are a nation whom Allah has honoured by Islam. Whenever we seek honour through other than it, Allah will humiliate us. There is no honour except by Islam, and there is no affiliation except to Islam." Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) said, "My father is Islam, I have no father other than it, When they pride themselves with Qais or Tameem" Thus, to affiliate to and seek honour through other than Islam is from the acts of ignorance.

Inspiration: Islam and Racism

Episode-12 (final episode - Season 1) from the amazing Inspiration Series by Mohamed Zeyara. Islam does not pay attention to differences in colour, race or lineage. All people come from Adam, and Adam was created from dust. In Islam, differentiation between people is based on faith (eemaan) and piety (taqwaa), by doing that which Allah has enjoined and avoiding that which Allah has prohibited. Allah says in the Quran:  "O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allaah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. he is one of Read more ...

Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him)."
