It is from the signs of the greatness of Allah The Glorious that He
has created human beings from different ethnic groups (Surah al
Hujuraat : Verse 13 ) O People ! We created you from a male and female
and formed you into peoples and tribes that you may recognise each
other. He who has more piousness has indeed more honour with Allah

The ethnic differences should not be a reason of any difference
between people if they understand that the ethnic diversity is in
favour of human lives. Muslims should respect the ethnic differences
and customs and habits of all ethnic groups exactly as they respect
their own customs and habits. The Muslim should not think that his
ethnic group is better than any other ethnic group and he should never
look down upon any person just because of his ethnic group.

The Muslim should tolerate ethnic customs which is not practiced in
his own culture or tribe or family giving others full right to
practice their own culture and habits as far as it does not contradict
with any Islamic teaching. In fact there is no scope of any difference
between people because of ethnic reasons. As ethnic differences are
created by Allah SWT for great wisdom all human beings from different
ethnic backgrounds are equal in from of Allah SWT and the best of the
is the more pious
