Racism whether upon open or hidden, is an evil aspect of life which Islams seeks to eradicate. It is clear from the versus of the Quran, and many sayings of the Prophet (saw) which have been narrated by his companions, that differences in colour, tribes, races, or traditions are not to be excuses for unjust behaviour or treatment.
“O Mankind, we created you from a single pair of a male and a female, and made you in to tribes and nations so that you may know each other (not that you despise each other). Verily, the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is he who is most righteous of you.”
(Al-Quran, Chapter 49, Verse 13)
Many Muslims who have been blessed to make Hajj often speak of how the journey is a life-changing experience. This is more the case for some than others.
Malcolm X, or Al-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, is one Muslim who saw the light of true Islam through his Hajj in April 1964. As a former member and speaker for the Nation of Islam, a black spiritual and nationalist movement, he believed that the white man was the devil and the black man superior.
After leaving the Nation of Islam in March 1964, he made Hajj, which helped change his perspective on whites and racism completely.
Here is an excerpt of a letter El Hajj Malik El Shabazz wrote a letter to his loyal assistants in Harlem… from his heart, telling them of his experience. In it, he explains what it was during this blessed journey that made him so profoundly shift his perspective on race and racism. We should keep in mind that this letter was written in a time when the history of African Americans in America was in making, a time when centuries worth of oppression was being spoken about and condemned in public.
“Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and overwhelming spirit of true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colors and races here in this ancient Holy Land, the home of Abraham, Muhammad and all the other Prophets of the Holy Scriptures. For the past week, I have been utterly speechless and spellbound by the graciousness I see displayed all around me by people of all colors.
“I have been blessed to visit the Holy City of Mecca, I have made my seven circuits around the Ka’ba, led by a young Mutawaf named Muhammad, I drank water from the well of the Zam Zam. I ran seven times back and forth between the hills of Mt. Al-Safa and Al Marwah. I have prayed in the ancient city of Mina, and I have prayed on Mt. Arafat.
“There were tens of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world. They were of all colors, from blue-eyed blondes to black-skinned Africans. But we were all participating in the same ritual, displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe never could exist between the white and non-white.
“America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, and even eaten with people who in America would have been considered white – but the white attitude was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam. I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practiced by all colors together, irrespective of their color.
“You may be shocked by these words coming from me. But on this pilgrimage, what I have seen, and experienced, has forced me to rearrange much of my thought-patterns previously held, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions. This was not too difficult for me. Despite my firm convictions, I have always been a man who tries to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experience and new knowledge unfolds it. I have always kept an open mind, which is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of intelligent search for truth.
“During the past eleven days here in the Muslim world, I have eaten from the same plate, drunk from the same glass, and slept on the same rug – while praying to the same God – with fellow Muslims, whose eyes were the bluest of blue, whose hair was the blondest of blond, and whose skin was the whitest of white. And in the words and in the deeds of the white Muslims, I felt the same sincerity that I felt among the black African Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan and Ghana.
“We were truly all the same (brothers) – because their belief in one God had removed the white from their minds, the white from their behavior, and the white from their attitude.
“I could see from this, that perhaps if white Americans could accept the Oneness of God, then perhaps, too, they could accept in reality the Oneness of Man – and cease to measure, and hinder, and harm others in terms of their ‘differences’ in color.
“With racism plaguing America like an incurable cancer, the so-called ‘Christian’ white American heart should be more receptive to a proven solution to such a destructive problem. Perhaps it could be in time to save America from imminent disaster – the same destruction brought upon Germany by racism that eventually destroyed the Germans themselves.
“Each hour here in the Holy Land enables me to have greater spiritual insights into what is happening in America between black and white. The American Negro never can be blamed for his racial animosities – he is only reacting to four hundred years of the conscious racism of the American whites. But as racism leads America up the suicide path, I do believe, from the experiences that I have had with them, that the whites of the younger generation, in the colleges and universities, will see the handwriting on the walls and many of them will turn to the spiritual path of truth – the only way left to America to ward off the disaster that racism inevitably must lead to.
“Never have I been so highly honored. Never have I been made to feel more humble and unworthy. Who would believe the blessings that have been heaped upon an American Negro? A few nights ago, a man who would be called in America a white man, a United Nations diplomat, an ambassador, a companion of kings, gave me his hotel suite, his bed. Never would I have even thought of dreaming that I would ever be a recipient of such honors – honors that in America would be bestowed upon a King – not a Negro.
“All praise is due to God, the Lord of all the Worlds.”
Malcolm X saw and experienced many positive things. Generosity and openheartedness were qualities which were impressed on him by the welcome which he received in many places. He saw brotherhood and the brotherhood of different races and this led him to disclaim racism and to say:
“I am not a racist… In the past I permitted myself to be used… to make sweeping indictments of all white people, the entire white race, and these generalizations have caused injuries to some whites who perhaps did not deserve to be hurt. Because of the spiritual enlightenment which I was blessed to receive as the result of my recent pilgrimage to the Holy City of Mecca, I no longer subscribe to sweeping indictments of any one race. I am now striving to live the life of a true Sunni Muslim. I must repeat that I am not a racist nor do I subscribe to the tenets of racism. I can state in all sincerity that I wish nothing but freedom, justice and equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people.”

For The Love of God
Some of the speakers:
Abdurraheem Green embraced Islam over 20 years ago and since that time has been active in the field of da’wah. Abdurraheem was educated in a Christian monastic school and although held strong Christian principles dabbled with other religions. This continual quest to find meaning to life eventually led him to Islam. He has been delivering talks in the UK and beyond for over two decades.He is a regular on Peace TV with many of his lectures widely watched on YouTube. Abdurraheem is a founding member and chairman of iERA.
International Daiee& Lecturer
He was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina in a very conservative Christian home. In his early teens he became heavily involved in the church near his home and in Young Life, a non-denominational youth oriented organization with the intention of becoming involved in the ministry of teaching and preaching. He intended to enrol in Bob Jones University, a world-renowned Bible College in his hometown upon graduating high school, but in the summer of 1996 his life changed. Upon studying the bible from cover to cover and realizing many things were askew, and a lot of what he believed his entire life was not in line with what his research found, he left Christianity and went in search of the truth. After many twist and turns, ups and downs and after looking at the many world religions searching for the tangible proof of the right way of life he encountered a Muslim, and was given a Qur’an. After reading the Qur’an cover to cover he accepted Islam in the winter of 1998.

Catatan Kembara Mencari Ilah – Salam Nuri
Seterusnya, saudara Dawood pula bertanya kepada saudara Mekaal apakah beliau juga mengalami kesusahan dalam mencari makanan halal? Saudara Mekaal menjelaskan yang beliau juga mengalami hal yang sama. Jadi jika hendak makan, beliau selalunya akan bersama dengan kawan-kawan Islamnya yang lain. Setelah itu, saudara Mekaal kembali bertanya kepada saudara Dawood kenapa orang Korea sangat suka minum arak.
Tajuk asal: Islam & Masyarakat
Petikan dari rancangan Salam Selangor oleh TVSelangor09
Tetamu : Ustaz Yob Zainal Ismail
Salam agama, hairan mengapa masyarakat Melayu muslim melakukan sesuatu yang negatif sedangkan masyarakat bukan Islam kurang melakukannya.
Islam baik dari segi takrifnya, tetapi kenapa ada buruk dari aspek amalannya? Mahukah anda memperbaiki amalan bertepatan dengan Islam yang Syumul? Muslim itu termasuk Melayu. Anggapan ramai Melayu itu semestilah Muslim. Sanggupkah anda sebagai Melayu mengakui Muslim, sedangkan Allah tidak iktiraf begitu?
Ikuti penjelasan bersama Ustaz Yob Zainal Ismail.

‘Air kosong pun sedap…’
PUTRAJAYA: “Bila berpuasa baru saya tahu erti nikmat. Ketika berbuka air kosong pun rasa sedap dan manis, malah berpuasa juga mengajar saya mengenai erti cinta dan menghargai orang lain terutama ibu bapa,” kata gadis Tionghua, J Sze, 21, yang mula belajar berpuasa sejak tahun lalu walaupun bukan beragama Islam.
J Sze, penuntut tahun dua di Maktab Perguruan Cheras, Kuala Lumpur mengakui dia mula berpuasa sekadar terikut-ikut dengan rakan Melayu yang berpuasa, selain ingin mengetahui perasaan mereka ketika menjalani rukun Islam ketiga itu, lalu mencabar diri untuk berpuasa bersama mereka.
Katanya, selepas berjaya berpuasa dia menemui apa maksud nikmat terutama ketika berbuka, apabila makanan dan minuman yang dinikmati ketika itu terasa amat berbeza dan dia dapat merasai keenakan, kesedapan dan kemanisan air kosong yang diminum.
“Tegukan pertama air terasa amat manis dan sedap. Itulah kenikmatan yang belum pernah saya rasai sebelum ini, jika saya tidak berpuasa tidak mungkin saya dapat merasainya. “Daripada berpuasa juga saya belajar bagaimana menghargai dan memahami maksud cinta sebenarnya. Saya belajar menghargai air yang mungkin satu hari nanti sukar mendapatkannya, rakan-rakan, masyarakat dan ibu bapa yang mungkin akan meninggalkan kita satu hari nanti,” katanya ketika ditemui pada majlis Iftar Perdana Hidayah Centre di sini, kelmarin.
Anak gadis yang enggan gambarnya dirakam berkata, dia mula berpuasa penuh sejak tahun lalu, namun tahun ini berhasrat untuk memperbaiki puasanya supaya lebih sempurna dengan menjaga tingkah laku, perkataan, perbuatan dan berpakaian.
Katanya, banyak faedah dan manfaat yang diperoleh jika seseorang berpuasa kerana mereka dapat merehatkan anggota dalaman badan yang sudah hampir setahun beroperasi memproses makanan.
“Bagi saya berpuasa sangat bagus untuk badan kita yang sudah bekerja keras selama 11 bulan. Namun, sepatutnya kita hanya berpuasa tidak makan dan minum, tetapi mesti menjaga tingkah laku, percakapan, pemikiran dan pandangan.
“Itu sebab saya kata bagus sebab kita mengambil berat semua aspek dalam kehidupan seharian supaya puasa kita diterima,” katanya yang masih dalam proses mendalami agama Islam.
J Sze berkata, ibu bapa dan keluarganya menerima dengan hati terbuka dan tidak menghalang tindakannya untuk berpuasa selepas dimaklumkan mengenai kebaikan dan manfaat yang diperoleh sekiranya seseorang itu berpuasa.
Menurutnya, ramai kawan bukan Islam yang mempersoalkan tindakannya berpuasa sedangkan dia bukan beragama Islam dan tidak wajib melakukannya.
“Sebab itu mentor saya, sifu Naser ada memuat naik video mengenai pengalaman saya berpuasa ke laman sosial YouTube untuk memaklumkan rakan-rakan bukan Islam mengenai kebaikan berpuasa dan kebaikan yang diperoleh.
“Ia juga sebagai satu usaha untuk menarik mereka sama-sama berpuasa supaya dapat merasai sendiri pengalaman berlapar dan dahaga sepanjang hari demi kebaikan sendiri,” katanya.
Katanya dia gemar ke bazar Ramadan kerana mempunyai pelbagai pilihan makanan untuk dinikmati ketika berbuka bersama rakan-rakan.
