Islam calls humanity to the service of the One, Omnipotent Creator. It instructs people on how they may live together in peace and harmony regardless of race, class, or belief. The unity of purpose brought by all previous religious guides is highlighted as well as traditional morality, the equality of the sexes before God and the virtues of patience and humbleness.
Mankind! We created you from a single soul, male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may come to know one another. Truly, the most honored of you in God’s sight is the greatest of you in piety. Surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.Translation of the Quran 49:13
Over a billion people from all races, nationalities and cultures are Muslim. They believe in the One, Unique, Incomparable, Merciful God the Sole Creator and Sustainer of the Universe; in Prophets through whom his revelations were brought to humankind; in the Day of Judgment and in individual accountability for actions; in God’s complete authority over destiny; and in life after death. Muslims believe that God sent his messengers and prophets to all people and that God’s final message to humanity, a reconfirmation of the eternal message and all that had gone before, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through the Archangel Gabriel.

No Arab has any superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab. Nor does a white man have any superiority over a black man, or the black man any superiority over the white man. You are all the children of Adam, and Adam was created from clay. Prophetic narration.
