‘Bilal (RA) and Inter-Racial Marriage in Islam’

Yesterday’s talk, in the spirit of MLK Day, was about race within Islam.

More specifically, the following were touched on:

1)      Marriage of Bilal (RA) to an Arab woman and the resistance of her tribe.

2)      Youth being compelled to marry from their parents’ choosing based primarily on ancestry of parents to restriction of others is a reason of growing divorce rate in community.

3)      Muslims need to call out racism among ourselves to have moral authority to discuss racism from outside.
