“Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny?”
~ Holy Qur’an 55:13 (M. Pickthall)
“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 white except though piety and good action.”
~ Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. (Last Sermon)
Although it may not seem to be the case, these girls are all biological sisters. Even more extraordinary, they are not just sisters, but two sets of twins. The girls were born to mixed ethnicity couple Dean Durrant and Alison Spooner. The eldest two; Hayleigh and Lauren are pictured holding their new twin sisters; Miya and Leah.
While this is incredibly rare, it’s a powerful sign from Allah SWT that we are all brothers and sisters in the same Human Family. Race is a corrupt man-made concept, just as Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, highlighted 14 centuries ago. Today, it’s high time we threw this evil concept in the trashcan of history, where it rightly belongs. All Humans are members of the same race, the Human Family, equitable in the sight of Allah SWT.
We live in such a beautiful and unique world, we need to ensure we are not among those who try to spoil it. Share if you agree!
