equality in islam
Islam is known for its teachings about the equality of all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, or linguistic background. Muslims regard the diversity of life as a sign of the beauty of Allah’s creation:
“And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colors. Verily in that are signs for those who know” (Qur’an 30:22).
Many of the first Muslims were from the lowest classes of society — slaves, women, and orphans — who were attracted to Muhammad’s message of human worth and equality.
