ISLAM AND THE RIGHT OF CITIZENS



It’s funny how those who accuse Islam of
being intolerant never raise the question why the Islamic civilization under
the Khilafah that lasted over 1300 years never needed black or minority civil
rights movements! It is because from its beginnings, Islam rejected nationalism
and pride of one’s race, valuing a human being based upon their piety and
conduct, as reflected in the last sermon of the Prophet(saw) when he said,


 



“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab
has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an
Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any
superiority over white except by piety and good action.” Indeed, Bilal(ra), a
black slave, became one of the close companions of the Messenger(saw) and the
first Muezzin (caller to pray). And from its beginning, Islam united black with
white, rich with poor, Arab with non-Arab based upon its unique aqeedah.



 



In addition, the Islamic texts define the
rights of citizenship to be the same for all regardless of race, colour,
religion, or gender, a principle that secular democratic states fought against
up to the 20th century and still fail to secure effectively for their citizens.
Under the Khilafah system, equal rights for all is not a dream or the rhetoric
of speeches but a fact of life, enshrined as one of the obligatory principles
of Islamic ruling – a fixed principle that cannot be changed, discarded,
overlooked, or rejected for the laws of the state are based upon the Qur’an and
Sunnah and not the fickle minds of prejudiced of human beings.
