Hadiths On Racism

Looking for an authentic Hadith on racism?

1) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) mentioned in a sermon he delivered during the days of Hajj:

“O People! Certainly your Rabb is one, your father is one. An Arab has no virtue over a Non Arab, nor does a Non Arab have virtue over an Arab, a red skinned person is not more virtuous than a dark skinned person nor is a dark skinned person more virtuous than a red skinned person except through Taqwa.”

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 411.)

2) Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) told Abu Dharr (radiyallahu ‘anhu):

“Behold! Verily, You are not better than a red skinned or black skinned person, but rather only by virtue of Taqwa.”

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 158)

3) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) addressed the people at the conquest of Makkah and said, “O Mankind! Indeed Allah has done away with the haughtiness of the Days of Ignorance and its vain boasting of one’s ancestry. Mankind is of two types; The pious, upright one, honourable in the sight of Allah and the immoral, sinful one, worthless in the sight of Allah. All mankind are the children of Adam and Allah created Adam from sand. Allah Ta’ala states, ‘O Mankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes so that you may get to know each other. Surely, the noblest among you in sight of Allah is the most righteous. Allah is All-Knowledgeable, All-Aware.’” [Surah Al Hujurat, Verse: 13]

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3270)

4) Sayyidah Safiyyah (radiyallahu ‘anha), the wife of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) came to know that Sayyidah Hafsah (radiyallahu ‘anha) had said about her that she is the daughter of a Jew. When Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) met her, she was weeping. So he asked, ‘Why are you weeping?’ She replied, ‘Hafsah said that I am the daughter of a Jew.’

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: You are the daughter of a Prophet [Harun ‘alayhis salam], and your uncle was a Prophet as well [Musa ‘alayhis salam] and you are the wife of a Prophet, so what is she boasting about?’ Then Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa salam) told Hafsah, ‘O Hafsah! Fear Allah!’

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3894.)

5) Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

‘Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or wealth, but rather He looks at your hearts and actions.’

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2564)

6) Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) said:

“I don’t think anyone who practises on the Verse [quoted below] will say, ‘I am more noble than you are.’ None is more noble than another person except by Taqwa”

‘O Mankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes so that you may get to know each other. Surely, the noblest among you in sight of Allah is the most righteous. Allah is All-Knowledgeable, All-Aware [Surah Al Hujurat, Verse: 13]’

(Al Adabul Mufrad, Hadith: 898)

7) A dark skinned person once came to Sa’id ibn Al Musayyab (rahimahullah) asking for something. Sa’id (rahimahullah) told him, ‘You being dark skinned, should not be a cause of grief/distress, for certainly three dark skinned men/African men were among the best of people; Bilal (radiyallahu ‘anhu), Mihja’, the freed slave of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) and Luqman Al Hakim.

(Tafsir Tabari; Jami’ul Bayan and Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Surah Luqman, Verse: 12)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows
