 Personally I'm not against inter-racial marriage. I personally believe that as Muslims we all are equal irrespective of color race or tribe. Racism was abandoned by our Prophet (PBUH) 1400 years ago. In spite of this we are seeing racism among the Muslims. We are seeing discrimination among rich and poor, black and white etc. Recently I read an excellent article on inter-racial marriage in Islam. So I thought of sharing this on this forum.

 Below is the article:
 Let me ask you a simple Question ( In Sh Allah)......

What do you think about
● intercultural/interracial marriages?

Would your parents agree to let you
● marry someone outside your culture or race?

Would you let your children marry
● outside their culture or race" ?

Interracial marriage is a beautiful thing (Ma Sh Allah) that's my OWN Humble opinion. Like most people Wallah I am a big believer when it comes to interracial marriage here you have BOTH people from two different backgrounds who are Muslims or reverted and love each other for the sake of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) what's the BIG deal in this?

Interracial marriages are what they are,"A Marriage!". As long as both SPOUSES love and respect each other and honor the Deen of ALLAH By following the sunnah of the Rasulullah (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) than tell me where is the bad in this ? Marriage is between a man and a woman! That is how all of us got here. The color of my skin should not stop me from marrying who I or you want to marry! The contents of my heart should be examined to see if I love others the way ALLAH says love! --------> People cannot help who they fall in love with.

I know for a FACT that Some certain people will DISAGREE with my statement because for them the way the see interracial marriages is something bad which later on BACKFIRES on both spouses when they are talked about by their family members /friends / strangers and so on...I can understand such arrogance can come from the None Muslims but such arrogance coming from the Muslims makes you wonder what kind of Muslim have we become nowadays. Even those who marry within the race will often face problems in marrying outside the tribe, or people from a specific part of the same country, so much so that some people even consider these marriages to be against the norm.

Marriage should be about love NOT race or should be based upon the Haqq of ( AL - ISLAM ). we are all equal to each other except for those who have a higher level of Taqwa and Iman. Islam teaches us that we are all created equal, with nothing differentiating us, expect for our belief and devotion to Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala)..

◕Surat Al-Ma'idah Ch5 Ayah 49◕
► So judge between them by what
Allah has revealed and do not follow
their inclinations away from what
has come to you of the truth.

To each of you We prescribed
a law and a method. Had Allah willed,
He would have made you one nation
[united in religion],but [He intended]
to test you in what He has given you;
so race to [all that is] good. To Allah
is your return all together,and He will
[then] inform you concerning that over
which you used to differ.

► Some of us are blessed with parents who have knowledge of the Deen. The rest of us, however, are not so fortunate. Some parents are stuck with the old ideology that one should marry within the race as opposed to ruining their “pure” (insert appropriate ethnicity) bloodline. This sounds more like Hitler’s logic in that he did not want the “superior” ethnicity to be lowered through marriage to someone of an “inferior” culture. We should point out Qur’anic verses and Hadith regarding the believers’ equality before Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) and how one’s level of Deen will matter on the Day of Judgment. Our skin color will not matter, neither will our superstitious man-made customs, ideologies, and “status” in society. For INSTANCE how many of you brothers and sisters know that the Rasulullah (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) Married different women from different races and tribes and religion? if the Beloved of ALLAH Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) did this why is it that most Muslims feel anger when they find out that their sons or daughters are marrying outside their race ? Yet you want to tell me your a " Muslim " you don't even know the meaning of the word.

The Rasulullah (Sallahu Alayhi Wa Salam) said

● "Undoubtedly Allah has removed
from you the pride of arrogance of
the age of Jahilliyah (ignorance) and
the glorification of ancestors. Now
people are of two kinds. Either believers
who are aware or transgressors
who do wrong. You are all the children
of Adam and Adam was made of clay.
People should give up their pride in
nations because that is a coal from
the coals of Hell-fire. If they do not
give this up Allah will consider
them lower than the lowly worm which
pushes itself through Khara (dung)."

► [Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi]

Plus Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) says...

◕Surat Al-Hujurat Ch49 Ayah 13◕
O mankind, indeed We have created
you from male and female and made
you peoples and tribes that you may
know one another. Indeed, the most
noble of you in the sight of Allah is
the most righteous of you. Indeed,
Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.

Therefore, it is clear that cultural differences should not stop us from marrying a partner of our choice. Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) does not care if I marry someone of the same race, or a different one, so long as we strive to keep each other on the right path. at the end of the day ya Muslimeen Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) will judge us for what is in our hearts, not our outward appearance. Nevertheless, we must be realistic about interracial marriages. I Agree that some Cultural differences are perhaps the number one reason why some people are afraid of marrying outside of their culture. FOR EXAMPLE What language will we speak? What type of food will we eat? Which customs will we incorporate into our wedding—his or mine? What language will our children speak? No matter your background, an interracial marriage will be met with obstacles on both sides.....Hence it should become clear to you that Islam does not discriminate between one Muslim and another by any earthly standards, whether that be colour, lineage, wealth or country.
Like I have said before --- Rather the only criterion by which people are regarded as superior to others before Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala) is Taqwa (piety, consciousness of ALLAH) --- FULL STOP....

Interracial Marriages [RACISM] - Islamic Reminder:
► Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only
due to *ALLAH*’s Assistance and Guidance, and
whatever of error is of me. Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala)
Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
