Masyallah I have always been fascinated by people of mixed race/parentage. How Allah S.W.T has created man to inherit two or more different cultures and features and taste and understand the varied facets of culture. To me people who are born to this world from parents of different cultures have so much to be thankful for, cause Allah S.W.T has chosen us among the millions of human's he has created to experience this rear encounter. Remember this is something you can never acquire in a lifetime except when Qada and Qadar of Allah S.W.T has ordained it for us at the world of souls ---- People of mixed races please respond. I would love to meet you. SABERASHATILA

As much as we would like to be noble and say that different races don't matter, it is something easier said than done. Being married to a diiferent race has made me realise this.

We can never completely erase the cultures which fashioned our behaviours from the cradle.

What we could perhaps do is be more tolerant and try our best to resolve differences by analysing if the requirement is a cultural or religious emphasis.

Example, i was asked to kiss the feet of my in-laws as a form of respect, which i objected and thus incurred their labelling me as a defiant daughter-in-law. And sadly my muslim husband was also disappointed in me!....

Assalamualeykum

I really think that being mixed is awesome becuase you would be combined of different culture, ancestors, and tradition. I'm kind of mixed because my mom is mixed with two different race. She doesn't embrace it because their race is the one that has oppressed our race. So therefore i only tell close friends about it, but if it wasn't for that i would be proud of it. I really think that it's nice being mixed, it shows the power of allah and proves his ayat of how he make everybody different so they can learn about each other and reflect on it.

Salaam every one!
i want to think the sister who brought up this subject. Mixed race is awful, it really mess up the meaning of culture, it makes generations to be unknown (la ala hawala wla ala hawala) this Ayah on the holy Quran meaning (not fully belonging to one group nor to the another). It is really against nature also..think about even animals don?t do that...a camel from Iraq will refuse to interact with a female camel from Iran for example.

Salaam

I am half danish and half pakistani.
My mother is from Denmark and my father is from Pakistan.

I have always thought that its beautiful that two peoples from very different country's can find love and peace in each other even when they sometimes dont speak then same language and have ben raised up in two different cultures

im also mixed, mirpuri and english (1/4). ive never really felt as if ive belonged. but as u say Islam is the impotant thing, and to be proud of who u are. i think were all special in our own way. but i think modesty is something which makes a person more special.

Salam aleikum...

Intellect is but scarce in this world ruled by the likes of a bush... quote from the famous sandman!!

How are you Dear sister Zara?? I hope you wish for the same peace and stability within your community, as I wish for mine!! Its easy for you to talk of things like equality, gender indiscrimination and non-racist attitudes.... From your picture, its clear that you are white and blonde... People like you belong to the cream of human society!!! You enjoy the best food and the most liberty. No one dares to attack your(white) countries... unless they disagree with the NATO alliance or so...

Not that I have anything against the white folks... I know there are good people among them. But you only understand the pain of being discriminated against and being underprivileged when you are colored like me and most of the people from the third world. The concept of third world is no longer existent in the modern geopolitical scenario based on globalisation of cultures and economies. But, I have been born and brought up in a nation other than my own, and I have seen the way my people are treated there. I have seen discrimination at airport immigration, restaurants, malls and what not. We're treated like pigs and abused whenever the chance is gotten!!!

A simple example of how colored muslims are discriminated against even at the holy city of Makkah!!! There no man should be discriminated against(atleast theoretically) for the cause of richness or race! Let me cite this real life incident. During Hajj periods, a heavy influx of pilgrims is normal(20 million!!!). My uncle, who has a British passport too was at the immigration queue with a group of 'white' muslims from Britain. Several hundred pilgrims from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh had occipied the lines. They had come hours earlier and were waiting for immigration procedures... My uncle and their group had just arrived. Seeing the white folks, the armed policemen.... pushed away the people who had been in queue for hours and those who protested were rewarded with lashings! How does this sound??

I have been through a lot a of racial maladies... and i admire your interest and hope to do something for racial equality and humanity!!! Those just seem ideal principles to a colored person like me...

Forgive me for the pain, if i have caused any to my 'white' brothers... And may Allah show us the right path and grant us all heaven. In heaven we are all souls... and souls are not bound by the color of skin!!!

Ma'salam!!

Assalamu alaykum my muslim brothers and Sisters..

Hope all of you are in the good state of health. Insya'allah. Well, I'm mixed too but to me that is not important because irregardless of races and culture, all of us are muslims.And that's is all that matters! :)

Reply for Female_Dyah..

I'm not sure whether i comprehend you correctly. Apologies, if i don't. In my opinion, in terms of special friend, even though culture plays a role but it is not the upmost important factor. When Allah has destined you to be with your other half, my dear sister, He connects both your hearts together, going beyond race, heritage and culture. wallahu alam bi sawab.

May Allah forgive me for my errors and guide us all.

Barakallahu feeki,
Nour

Salam aleikum brothers and sisters...

I'm a muslim brother from India, but i have been around a lot of cultures( born and brought up in Dubai,UAE). I find cultures and languages fascinating. How we evolved so much from our Father Adam and Mother Eve is indeed intriguing. Nothing can be said of it other than being described as the qudrat of Allah(swt).

I know a few odd languages... Malayalam(mother tongue), Tamil(my ancestors were tamilian), Hindi, Arabic(reading only) and quite modest English.

Hope to see me postings, insha allah.

Ma'salamah.

There is only one race! That is the human race sister. You should love all people no matter how black, how white how brown. You should be facsincated with all people. It's in the heart what counts. Those things you are facsinated with are superficiality, vanity. Humans are humans. Love everyone.

Asalam-o-Alikum,
I totaly agree with sister marriedin2001.
Our spiritual beings are more different than our physical beings....
I feel so much happy when i see muslims from different races.
It is only the Power of Allah(SWT),Who brings our hearts togather.

Allah bless all of us (Ameen)

Prophet Mohammad said once that there is not difference between color of skin or culture .. faith is what makes the difference.

Mixed or no mixed we are all the same and came from the same man "Adam"
