Well, apparently some do think so. 🙄 A couple months ago a relative of mine joined some brothers from Kuwait and Qatar, in hopes that he would improve on his Arabic. As they got to know each other, it was inevitable that they would find out he is of Indian descent. They were perplexed, and then asked, “your mother is white?” Of course he adamently replied “No! I’m Indian. Fully Indian! :)” What a tragedy. (Not!) Their behavior automatically changed (for the worse), and stopped talking to him in Arabic. All of a sudden, he was inferior, because he is Indian! :?If you like a person when you do not know their background, why should your perception change after you find out? I don’t see this behavior in Arabs only and I am aware that not all Arabs are like this. I notice that Indians can behave the same way. It is the concept that I intensely dislike, as Allah does not judge us based on race, but rather on taqwa. Who are we to judge a person by their race? Is that even logical?
Never forget the words of Allah:
“O mankind! Truly, We have created you from male and female and have made you into nations and tribes, so that you may know one another. Indeed the most noblest amongst you, in the sight of Allaah, is he who has the most taqwa.” [Surat Hujuraat / Ayah 13]
