What Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) Thought Of Black People by basilico: 1:01pm On Jan 07, 2014
Straight from the Quran and early Islamic sources


Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah's Apostle said, "You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin."
Sahih Bukhari 9:89:256

Qur'an 39:60
And on the day of resurrection you shall see those who lied against Allah; their faces shall be blackened. Is there not in hell an abode for the proud?

Ishaq:243 “I heard the Apostle say: ‘Whoever wants to see Satan should look at Nabtal!’ He was a black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks…. Allah sent down concerning him: ‘To those who annoy the Prophet there is a painful doom.” [9:61] “Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, ‘If a black man comes to you his heart is more gross than a donkey’s.’”


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith - 38
Narrated AbudDarda'
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Allah created Adam when He had to create him and He struck his right shoulder and there emitted from it white offspring as if they were white ants. He struck his left shoulder and there emitted from it the black offspring as if they were charcoal. He then said (to those who had been emitted) from the right (shoulder): For Paradise and I do not mind. Then He said to those (who had been emitted) from his left shoulder: They are for Hell and I do not mind.

The irony.

hehehe grin but according to the bible, if you are white it is a curse.

"And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman." (Numbers 12:1).

"And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it." (Numbers 12:2).

"And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous." (Numbers 12:10).

"And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned." (Numbers 12:11).

"Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother’s womb." (Numbers 12:12)

"And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow." (Exodus 4:6).
"And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh." (Exodus 4:7).

Those verses of the Quran and the Hadiths you quoted aren't talking about races,rather they are talking about the dwellers of paradise and dwellers of hell.Allah says in the glorious Quran in Surah Al-Imran 3:106 -On the Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) when some faces will become white and some faces will become black;as for those whose faces will become black (to them will be said):Did you reject Faith after accepting it? Then taste the torment (in Hell) for rejecting Faith.

Surah Yunus 10:26-27 -For those who have done good is the best (reward, i.e. Paradise) and even more.Neither darkness nor dust nor any humiliating disgrace shall cover their faces.They are the dwellers of Paradise,they will abide therein forever.
And those who have earned evil deeds,the recompense of an evil deed is the like thereof,and humiliating disgrace will cover them (their faces).No defender will they have from Allâh.Their faces will be covered,as it were with pieces from the darkness of night.They are dwellers of the Fire,they will abide therein forever.

Those you will have black faces are those that rejected faith and those with white faces are the true believers in the oneness of Allah.
But as we know that the Op is a chronic liar who find it very hard to comprehend.

Allah says in Surah Al-Hujurat 49:13 -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 Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqun (pious)].Verily,Allah is All-Knowing,All-Aware.
From the sayings of our beloved prophet Muhammad(pbuh).
Narrated AbuDharr:Allah's Messenger(pbuh) said to him:You are not better than people with red or black skins unless you excel them in piety[Jami At-Tirmidhi,Hadith Number 5198].

Jubair ibn Mut’im reported:The Messenger of Allah(peace and blessings be upon him, said):He is not one of us who calls to tribalism.He is not one of us who fights for the sake of tribalism.He is not one of us who dies following the way of tribalism. [Sunan Abu Dawud,Hadith Number 5102]

The Prophet Muhammad's Last Sermon

This sermon was delivered on the Ninth Day of Dhul Hijjah 10 A.H.
in the'Uranah valley of Mount Arafat' (in Mecca).
After praising, and thanking Allah he said:
"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 THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.
O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and that HE will indeed reckon your deeds. Allah has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. Allah has Judged that there shall be no interest and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn 'Abd'al Muttalib (Prophet's uncle) shall henceforth be waived...
Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.
O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under Allah's trust and with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.
O People, listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajjif you can afford to.
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. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.
Remember, one day you will appear before Allah and answer your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.
O People, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the QURANand my example, the SUNNAHand if you follow these you will never go astray.
All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness, O Allah, that I have conveyed your message to

I think more of his last sermon should be preached in mosques and muslim communities more often. That been said, how do we reconcile that he said the following:

The Quran plainly tells Muslims that they are a favored race, while those of other religions are “perverted transgressors”:

Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book [Christians and Jews] had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors. (Surah 3:110)

The Quran dehumanizes non-Muslims, describing them as “animals” and beasts:

Those who disbelieve from among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures. (Surah 98:6)

Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve, then they would not believe. (Surah 8:55)


In such cases, which text should we follow. You have Allah saying that Muslims are the best of people and non muslims are the worst of creatures. So, should we listen to Allah or should we listen to Mohammad's last message on the mount over the Quran?

The issue of racism is a touchy subject in Muslim history and a well documented one at that. Even amongst the Arabs, there was always a superior tribe:

Sahih Bukhari 9:89:329 = Narrated Jabir bin Samura: I heard the Prophet saying, "There will be twelve Muslim rulers (who will rule all the Islamic world)." He then said a sentence which I did not hear. My father said, "All of them (those rulers) will be from Quraish."

Here, Mohammad said his tribe will be the ruling class of the Arabs. In other places, Allah or whosoever that is talking in the Quran said some Arabs are inferior in race:

Surah 9:97 = The Arabs of the desert are the worst in Unbelief and hypocrisy, and most fitted to be in ignorance of the command which Allah hath sent down to His Messenger: But Allah is All-knowing, All-Wise.

Even among Arabs themselves, there was racism and Mohammad said his Quraish tribe will rule. There is a lot of evidence confirming certain racist remarks he made about black people:

Sahih Bukhari 9:89:256 = Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah's Apostle said, "You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin."

Here, we clearly see that a non black slave was worth two black slaves

Sahih Muslim 10:3901 = J[i]abir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledg- ed allegiance to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) on migration; he (the Holy Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man)[/i]

Al-Tabari, Vol. 2, p. 11, p. 11 = Shem, the son of Noah was the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth. He prayed that the African’s color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks.

Sahih Bukhari 9:87:161 = Narrated 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, "I saw (in a dream) a black woman with unkempt hair going out of Medina and settling at Mahai'a, i.e., Al-Juhfa. I interpreted that as a symbol of epidemic of Medina being transferred to that place (Al-Juhfa)."

There are two many Hadiths and Islamic sources to quote. It's hard to claim that Mohammad either didn't respect blacks or was racist.

7. The Islamophobe desperately needs us to believe Islam is utterly unlike us, but simultaneously like us. Because America is a country, Islam must be a country, too. If “they” attacked our capital on 9/11, we should attack “their” capital, which somehow becomes Mecca.
And this takes on more pernicious forms of reasoning. While condemning Islam for being allergic to secularism (creeping Shari’ah and all that), ostensibly Christian Islamophobes actively work for the Christianization of American politics and law. They see no contradiction in this. Newt Gingrich, who suggested during the controversy that there should not be a mosque near Ground Zero unless and until there was a church in Mecca. Gingrich associates America with a church, as opposed to say democracy; he wants a symbol of Christianity (read, America) in Mecca.

poor him indeed, he goes on in his next post to contradict his point, being a Muslim no longer makes you part of a favoured race but means you retain your race and could be discriminated by other races especially the arabs, why? Are u in any way related to Mitt? u know flip flopping? grin

Re: What Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) Thought Of Black People by lanrexlan(m): 10:48am On Jan 09, 2014
cloudstar:

I think more of his last sermon should be preached in mosques and muslim communities more often. That been said, how do we reconcile that he said the following:

The Quran plainly tells Muslims that they are a favored race, while those of other religions are “perverted transgressors”:

Ye are the best of peoples,evolved for mankind,enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book [Christians and Jews] had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors. (Surah 3:110)
Muslims are the best people evolved from mankind only if they enjoined what's right and forbids what's wrong and believe in the oneness of Allah.You can also join the best of mankind.

cloudstar: The Quran dehumanizes non-Muslims,describing them as “animals” and beasts:

Those who disbelieve from among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye).They are the worst of creatures. (Surah 98:6)

Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve,then they would not believe. (Surah 8:55)

What should I say about you? Can't reason or comprehend simple thing?? Humans are equal in the sight of Allah if faith is to be taken away,no white is superior to black nor vice versa because we are created equally and descended from Adam.
But when faith is included,some people accepted faith while others rejected faith then,the best of men are those who have faith and keep the commandments of Allah.

A believer is beloved to Allah than a disbeliever.Why? Because of his faith in Allah and keeping his commandments.Is it hard to comprehend?

See this simple analogue,who's more beloved and dearer to an employer? A hard working employee or an employee that plays with his job? Reason yourself if you can.

Animals are better than disbelievers because they praise and glorify Allah.Then if animals glorify Allah and disbelievers don't,are the disbelievers not worst than animals? Verily,the words of Allah are true.
cloudstar: In such cases,which text should we follow.You have Allah saying that Muslims are the best of people and non muslims are the worst of creatures.So,should we listen to Allah or should we listen to Mohammad's last message on the mount over the Quran?
I am very sure you just jumped into conclusion,you didn't read those posts before posting.

The Quran and prophet Muhammad(pbuh) last sermon never contradicts.The Quran says in Surah Al-Hujurat 49:13 -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 HONORABLE OF YOU WITH ALLAH IS THAT (BELIEVER) WHO HAS AT-TAQWA [i.e. PIETY,SELF-CONTROL].Verily,Allah is All-Knowing,All-Aware.
Did prophet Muhammad(pbuh) said anything contradictory? Absolutely NO!
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.
You didn't read this abi? How did a black has superiority over a white? Through piety.How did a white has superiority over a black? Through piety.If a black man has piety and an arab rejects faith,the black is superior to that arab and vice versa.
Dude,next time if you don't have any tangible thing to contribute just keep watching you hear.
