Arabs (Majority Saudi’s): Racist Muslims

People are not going to like me,
I don’t write out of popularity,
For the sake of Allah (s.w.t),
I speak truth,
Wallahi,
If you have a weak heart,
Don’t read further,

Saudi’s the most racist ‘Muslims’,
Arabs believe being Brown Nomads,
Gives them righteousness over the rest,
Yemeni’s treat Somali’s like trash,
Treating dogs like a man’s best friend,
Somali’s can’t forget tribes,
Have their own ‘Somali’ masjid,
Masjid down the road is for ‘Arabs’,

Think I’m joking,
Walk into a West African halaal store,
Same feeling African-Americans get when walking into a Chinese convenient store,
Rwanda brothers and sisters killing each other,
Sudanese Christians massacring brothers and sisters,
White American’s feeling uncomfortable entering a Somali cafe,

It doesn’t stop,
University campuses has cultural issues,
Saudi women talk to Saudi men,
Saudi men communicate with Saudi princes,
Looking down at Africans because you miss your servant,
Imagining Muhammad who spoke Salaams as your butler,

Worse when Arabs speak Arabic ignoring Africans,
At the park,
Saudi and Jordanian,
My friend Somalian,
Pardon my mistake,
Brothers and sisters no matter the race,
Arabs thought we wouldn’t understand,
‘Don’t they know Arabs are the real Muslims,
If we were back home,
We could show that white brother the mistake he’s making’,

I don’t know if people notice,
Chinese Muslims hospitable,
Malaysian and Indonesians compassionate,
Of coarse everyone racist,
Subconsciously stereotyping accidentally,

Let me explain,
Allah (s.w.t) brought down revelation,
‘O mankind, verily,
We have created you from male and female,
Made you people’s and tribes that you may know one another.
Verily, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah,
Is the most righteous of you.
Verily, Allah is knowing and aware.
[Surah Al-Hujurat 49:13]

We have been told Allah (s.w.t) divided us,
Peoples and tribes,
Do we act upon knowledge?
Do we understand what it means?

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) spoke in one sermon,
‘O people, verily, your Lord is one and your father Adam is one.
There is no favoritism of an Arab over a foreigner,,
Nor a foreigner over an Arab,
And neither red skin over black skin,
Nor black skin over red skin,
Except through righteousness.
Have I not conveyed the message?
[Source: Musnad Ahmad 22978]

Has Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) not conveyed the message?
Why do we continue to judge each other based on skin?
If we take Somalia as an example,
Brothers and sisters of different shades,
Dark chocolate to white pearls,
We treat those of opposite shades as nothing,
All brothers and sisters deserve love,

Narrated By Abu Huraira (ra),
A black man or a black woman used to sweep the mosque and he or she died.
The Prophet asked about her (or him).
He was told that she (or he) had died.
He said, “Why did you not inform me?
Show me his grave (or her grave).”
So he went to her (his) grave and offered her (his) funeral prayer.
(Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 8, Number 448)

Would you do this for your brother?
If he was Saudi,
Just as you are,
Would it change your mind?
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) breastfed by a black woman,
Bilal (ra) taunted,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said,
‘I am from a black woman just as much as I am from a white woman,
Bilal is one of us (meaning one of the Prophet Muhammad’s family members)’,

I don’t write to belittle,
I write to educate Muslims on how to treat one another,
Been told from brothers and sisters,
‘I want to marry someone who is from the same race or tribe’,
In other words,
You only marry someone who is the same race,

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had been visited by a family,
They told him, ‘we want someone to marry our daughter’,
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, ‘what about Bilal (ra)’,
The family came back a second time,
‘We want someone to marry our daughter’,
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, ‘what about Bilal (ra)’,
The family came a third time,
‘We want someone to marry our daughter,
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, ‘how about Bilal (ra)’,
Paradise longed for Bilal (ra),

We’re lost,
Not aware of the disease,
Heart losing deeds continuously,
Abu Umamah (ra) reported:
Abu Dharr reproached Bilal about his mother,
Saying, “O son of a black woman!”
Bilal went to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him),
He told him what he said.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) became angry,
Abu Dharr came although he was unaware of what Bilal told him.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) turned away from him and Abu Dharr asked,
“O Messenger of Allah,
Have you turned away because of something you have been told?”
The Prophet said, “Have you reproached Bilal about his mother?”
Then the Prophet said,
“By the one who revealed the Book to Muhammad (or however Allah willed for him to swear),
None is more virtuous over another except by righteous deeds.
You have none but an insignificant amount.”
[Shu’b Al-Iman Al-Bayhaqi 4760]

Beware of the insignificant amount of deeds you carry,
Brother or sister who you mistreat,
Based on color,
Could be carrying more,

Most importantly,
Marry an individual who brings you closer to Allah (s.w.t),
Someone who reminds you of paradise,
No matter how ‘Arab’ you claim to be,

Remember…

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him),
Companions (may Allah be pleased with them all),
Were all reverts,
Former slaves,
Foreigners,
Beware of your transgressions,

Message just as much for me as it is for you…
