“O mankind! We created you from a male and a female, and rendered you nations and tribes so that you may know one another. Indeed, the most honorable among you in the sight of God is the most righteous of you. Indeed God is All-Knowing, All-Aware.” (Quran 49:13). “And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your languages and your colors: Surely in that are Signs for those who possess intellect.” (Quran 30:22) The Messenger of God Muhammad (peace be upon him) informed us in his ‘Farewell Speech’ over 1400 years ago: “O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to others...All humans descended from Adam and Eve. There is no superiority of an Arab person over non-Arab or non-Arab over an Arab, nor is there any superiority of a white person over a black person or of a black person over a white person, except in piety and righteousness.”
