  • Prejudice and discrimination: Islam
    • The Qur’an teaches that everyone was created by Allah and that everyone is equal:
      • Of His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your tongues and colours.
      • Therefore there is no reason to treat people of different races differently.
        • All mankind is descended from Adam and Eve, an Arab is not better than a non-Arab a white person is not better than a black except by piety and good actions
    • Attitudes towards women.
      • Islam teaches that men and women are equal in the sight of Allah. They are individually accountable for their actions, and will be judged equally by Allah.
        • However, although men and women are equal, they are not the same.
          • They have different purposes.
            • It is part of Allah’s design and purpose for men and women to have different physical characteristicsIt is the duty of a man to provide for the financial needs of his family, and for a woman to look after the home and family.
              • direct thy wives and daughters and the women of the believers that they should pull down their outer cloaks from their heads over their faces.
              • Wives have rights corresponding to those which the husbands have, in certain situations men would have the final word
              • Men are appointed guardians over women
              • Paradise lies at the feet of your mother
