People are like the teeth of the comb
Commentary by Sheikh Nematullah/Marcia Hermanson: Meaning that they (people) are all equal, like the teeth of a comb, since they are all descendants of Adam (A.S). This disavows any hint of racism, rather a common humanity is affirmed and superiority is only achieved in terms of God consciousness (taqwa).
