O mankind! there has come to you a direction from
your Lord God and a healing for the (diseases) in your hearts,- and for
those who believe, a guidance and a Mercy.
Say: "In the bounty of God. And in His Mercy,- in that let them rejoice":
that is better than the (wealth) they hoard. (The Holy Quran, 10:55-58)
About 1400 years ago, in
his last sermon, Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) said:
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no
superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an
Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any
superiority over a white — except by piety and good action. Learn that
every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims
constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim
which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and
willingly. Do not therefore do injustice to yourselves. Remember one
day you will meet Allah and answer your deeds. So beware: Do not stray
from the path of righteousness after I am gone.”
"He makes you in the wombs of your mothers in stages, one after
another, in three veils of darkness."
(The Holy Quran, Chapter 39, verse 6, revealed to Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.)
14 centuries ago)

Respect for the
Chastity of Women
The third important
thing that we find in the Charter of Human Rights granted by Islam is
that a woman's chastity has to be respected and protected under all
circumstances, whether she belongs to our own nation or to the nation
of an enemy, whether we find her in the wild forest or in a conquered
city; whether she is our co-religionist or belongs to some other
religion or has no religion at all. A Muslim cannot outrage her under
any circumstances. All promiscuous relationship has been forbidden to
him, irrespective of the status or position
of the woman, whether the woman is a willing or an unwilling partner
to the act. The words of the Holy Quran in this respect are: "Do not
approach (the bounds of) adultery" (17:32).
