نحن قوم أعزنا الله بالإسلام ، فهما طلبنا العزة بغيره ، أذلنا الله

We are the people whom Allah honoured through Islam, so whenever we seek honour other than it, Allah will disgrace us.

Iblis one mistake

This story is captured in the Quran. When Allah created Adam from clay, He ordered the malaikat to bow down to Adam. All obeyed Him, except Iblis.

7:12 ((Allah)) said: "What prevented thee from bowing down when I commanded thee?" He said: "I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire, and him from clay."

Iblis thought that he was a better creature simply because of he was created from fire and Adam from clay. This is the first example of racism in Allah's creations, and how Allah was displeased with racism.

And so the story went on, that Iblis was expelled from heaven, and since then, he has vowed to entice Adam's descendants to follow his track, away from the right path.

So, let's look at ourselves? Are we racist in any way? Do we think that we are superior than Indonesians, simply because we were born Malaysians? Maybe we think we do not, but look at how we treat our fellow muhajiroons.

Do we think that we are supreme, because we are Malay, and those non-malays are inferior to us? Maybe we think we are OK, but how come we never object to the abuse of scholarship fund, where the right group of people do not receive the right benefit, simply because they are not the right race.

If we do, than we have inherited one characteristics of Iblis, that has kept him away from the Jannah. Racism

I will bring more complicated example so that we can discuss about it in coming entries (hopefully).

Let's unite against racism.

Hmm.. Patriotism, loving the nation, loving the country is very encouraged in islam.. What is wrong is racism.. Which is the feeling of superiority above others which indirectly is a form of hate..

Ps. Iblis? Racist? Good point.
