Race

A homonym.

It can be an event . (but let’s save that for later.)

Let’s define it to mean color.

A singular color. Derived from a singular believer named Adam. 

“There is only one race in this world. That is the HUMAN race,” said Shaykh Bilal Phillips.

“A Dane, whiter than white who is of O negative blood type is in dire need of a blood transfusion. His family, all white or whiter than white cannot save him as they don’t share his blood type.

Somewhere across the world, an Indian man, blacker than black, has an O negative blood type too. Would he knew that the Dane needed a transfusion, he could have saved his life. 

Now tell me, who is closer to the Dane in nature, in all his being. His whiter than white family members? Or that blacker than black Indian man? 

There is only one race. The human race.”

Quran 49:13 

Sahih International: O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.
