Hadith 2: Racism

Prophet Muhammad, May Allah send peace and blessings upon him, said:

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).

Hadith is narrated by Shah Waliullah Ad-Dehlavi in his 40 Hadith collection known as Al Arbain, with a straight chain of narrators from his teacher to Imam Hussein (R.A).
