Malcolm X – Letter from Mecca

Malcolm X – Letter from Mecca

Character and Personality Building Course by Prophet Muhammad (s) – Topic 2.Racial and Caste Equality


Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him – (S)] in

his last sermon from the Mount of Arafat [Makkah]

declared: “An Arab is no better than a non-Arab

and a non-Arab is no better than an Arab; A red

raced man is no better than a black, except in piety.

Mankind are Adam’s children and Adam was

created from dust”





Islam prohibits all kinds of distinctions on account

of race, caste, color, birth or language. The society

established by Prophet Muhammad (S) was unique

in this respect. It had Salman from Persia [Iran],

Bilal from Ethiopia, Suhaib from Rome, all living

together with honor and respect. Prophet

Muhammad (S) married his cousin, Zainab of the

noblest tribe of Quraish to Zaid bin Harith who was

purchased by his wife Khadija as slave.



Caliph Omar used to call Bilal who was originally a

slave as Sayyedna Bilal [Bilal My Lord] and used to

accommodate him to sit by his side whenever he

visited him during his Caliphate.






And We did not send you (O

Muhammad) except as a Mercy to


worlds(all the People in this world


in hereafter).

Holy Qur’an 21:107

Say (Muhammad): “If ye do love Allah, Follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”Holy Quran 3:31

Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.Holy Quran 33:21

“It is He who has sent His messenger (Muhammad) with the guidance and the Religion of truth(Islam), to prevail over all religions, even though the idolaters may detest.”

(Holy Quran 9:33)

“This day I have perfected for you

your religion, and completed my favor

upon you and have chosen Islam as

your way of life.” (Holy Qur’an 5:3)

Holy QuranSurah 68. The Pen, (theLetter) Nun

1. Nun. By the Pen and the (Record) which (men) write,-

2. Thou(Muhammad) art not, by the Grace of thy Lord,

mad or possessed.

3. Nay, verily for thee is a Reward unfailing:

4. And thou (Muhammad)(standest) on an exalted

standard of character.

5. Soon wilt thou see, and they will see,

6. Which of you is afflicted with madness.

7. Verily it is thy Lord that knoweth best, which (among

men) hath strayed from His Path: and He knoweth best

those who receive (true) Guidance.

8. So hearken not to those who deny (the Truth).
