Was there racism in Arabia and as there was racism after Islam, the Muslim Institute presents q&a with Abdullah Bharatiya, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conquered
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam ordered beleived to stand on the Kaaba to make the and when he made that
that was a revolutionary act. From the simple standpoint that this man was an Abyssinian slave, a black, Abyssinian slave on top of the Kaaba,
the most sacred site on the face of this earth, a black man was on top of it, proclaiming the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
It was so revolutionary. In fact, some of the new Muslims, they said
Alhamdulillah our praises be to God, that my father died before seeing this black man stand up on the cabin.
Racism was there in Arabia, they accepted Islam, yet
Islam fought racism, but it did it eliminate racism. Well, you see it, it's still there, and in the society, even in Muslim societies now. But Islam was far ahead of its time. In fact, it fight racism from the very beginning and they gave them rights. And it also promoted the freeing of slavery and so it fight against slavery before even the whole the world at that time, had accepted slavery and from China all the way to Europe and other parts of the world. It was a known fact of life. Yet Islam came to free free people to proclaim that there is no difference between Arabic and non Arab, when or nor a black and white except in character, except in piety accepted righteousness. And so,
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the lie, the stand up there was a revolutionary change. And there were many revolutionary changes, and many things that Islam came to fight against in some of these things we accept for a fact now, but Islam was far ahead of its time at that time. And so, these issues and other issues will be covered in the upcoming class known as homecoming. The Medina phase and period of the seer of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.
