Reference from Hadith
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
said:
O people! Your Lord is one Lord, and you all
share the same father.
There is no preference for Arabs over non-Arabs,
nor for non-Arabs over Arabs.
Neither is their preference for white people over
black people, nor for black people over white
people.
Preference is only through righteousness.
