Different races all from adam.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

dear brother Burhan,

Firstly i really want to congratulate you for the kind of service you are doing for our deen. may Allah s.t grant you Jannat.

They are different races in this world, with different kind of skin and color with different tongues and languages. People of different regions have the different looks, for eg: No Chinese looks like a Japanese or any other people of any other part of the globe. We have the blacks with curly hair where you have the whites with straight hair.

My question to you is, how did sooo many races came into being.When we are all the children of Adam ( A.S)..all our borthers n sisters...pls advice if and correct me if i am wrong in any way....

Aaah bless.

Different races all from adam

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth.  If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause.  We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire.  Ameen.


Your Question: ….They are different races in this world, with different kind of skin and color with different tongues and languages…… My question to you is, how did sooo many races came into being.When we are all the children of Adam ( A.S)..all our borthers n sisters...

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 1:

1        O mankind! Reverence your Guardian-Lord Who created you from a single person (Adam (a.s.)); created of like nature his mate (Hawwa); and from them twain scattered countless men and women; reverence Allah through Whom ye demand your mutual (rights) and (reverence) the wombs (that bore you): for Allah ever watches over you.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 49 Surah Hujuraat verse 13:

13      O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other).  Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you.  And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).


Allah Subhanah guides in His Glorious Quran that without an iota of a doubt, all human beings are the off-spring of one set of parents: ie. Adam (a.s.) and Hawwa; and that it is He Who has dispersed mankind into various nations and tribes.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rome verse 22:

22      And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth; and the variations in your languages and in your colors: verily in that are Signs for those who know.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verses 27-28:

27      Seest thou not that Allah sends down rain from the sky? With it We then bring out produce of various colors.  And in the mountains are tracts white, and red, of various shades of color, and black intense in hue.

28      And so amongst men and crawling creatures and cattle are they of various colors.  Those truly fear Allah among His Servants who have knowledge: for Allah is Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 82 Surah Infitaar verses 6-7:

6        O man! What has seduced thee from thy Lord Most Beneficent?

7        Him Who created thee; fashioned thee in due proportion; and gave thee a just bias;

8        In whatever Form He Wills does He put thee together.


Your Question: My question to you is, how did sooo many races came into being.When we are all the children of Adam ( A.S)..all our borthers n sisters...

As much as every single human being is the off-spring of the exact same set of parents, it is a scientific fact that the external conditions like the temperature one is exposed to, or the food one consumes, or the environment one lives in, etc…..over a considerable period of time has an effect on the nature or color of one’s skin and appearance.  Thus although every human being is the off-spring of Adam, in the considerable time that has elapsed from the time of Hadrat Adam (a.s.) until this age….the physical appearance of man has probably evolved through the ages. And Allah Alone Knows Best.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.830         Narrated by Abu Huraira

A bedouin came to Allah's Messenger (saws) and said, "My wife has delivered a black child." The Prophet (saws) said to him, "Have you camels?" He replied, "Yes." The Prophet (saws) said, "What color are they?" He replied, "They are red." The Prophet (saws) further asked, "Are any of them gray in color?" He replied, "Yes." The Prophet (saws) asked him, "Whence did that grayness come?" He said, "I think it descended from the camel's ancestors." Then the Prophet (saws) said (to him), "Therefore, this child of yours has most probably inherited the color from his ancestors."


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
