American Christians are seeing many African-American brothers and sisters leaving Christianity for Islam. What is the response of these Christians? To lie and attempt to present Prophet Muhammad (p) as racist!
Anybody with any sort of scholarship and/or insight into Islam will know Prophet Muhammad was not racist
From Prophet Muhammad we realise racism is ‘ignorance’.
Muslims believe there were black Prophets (in fact Prophets of every skin colour) as Allah (God) sent warners to every nation.
Prophet Muhammad had many black friends (who are loved in Islam), approved marriages between Black and Arab, the first muezzin (caller to prayer) was indeed a black man (Bilal) and the Prophet’s nurse was Abyssinian (Umm Aymen)
Did Paul have any such relationships with black people? Did Mark, Matthew, Luke and John ever meet a black person never mind befriend and love them (like Prophet Muhammad did)?
From the New Testament, The Ethiopian eunuch seems to be the first black person to become a Christian – at the hands of Philip [Acts 8:26-40]. There are very few details about this man. In fact Philip disappears after the Ethiopian’s baptism.
For me, this is another sign that Prophet Muhammad (p) is indeed the Last Messenger of God. Surely the last Messenger of God would have had such fine teachings concerning race and relations with black people especially since they are indeed generally the most victimised when it comes to race in the history of mankind.
Christian Missionary Desperate Smear Campaign
Sadly, for these Christians the truth is of no concern; these folk have an agenda and they work it assiduously.
If the video does not play, please see:
In this video, the Christians misrepresent a dream interpretation. This is the dream interpretation they misrepresent:
Volume 9, Book 87, Number 161:
The Prophet said, “I saw (in a dream) a black woman with unkempt hair going out of Medina and settling at Mahai’a, i.e., Al-Juhfa. I interpreted that as a symbol of epidemic of Medina being transferred to that place (Al-Juhfa).”
The Assyrian Christian LIES and claims Muhammad said ‘if you have a dream of a black woman that is a sign of an epidemic’!
The Christian must have thought African-Americans are stupid or something; I mean there’s no way somebody balanced is going to come away believing these desperate Christians after reading about Prophet Muhammad (p) and the hadith above. It’s obvious the hadith above is related to that SPECIFIC hadith and Prophet Muhammad did not say ‘if you see a black woman in your dream then you will have an epidemic’ – this was a bare-faced lie by the Christian missionary who goes by the names, Sam Shamoun and Triple B. I’d like to add another name to his list, ‘liar’
The Christian even misuses Qadi Iyad’s Ash-Shifa and attempts to make a Muslim scholar appear racist. Amazingly, we have already refuted this deception before, I guess the /Christian in question had not seen our article or simply chose to ignore it to further his deceptive agrenda.
Here is the article in full:
There is a deceptive ploy on the internet which suggests Islam is racist against black people.
Those who propagate such a claim use the two narrations in Ash-Shifa of Qadi Iyad which highlights the opinion of Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman concerning those who call the Prophet Muhammad (p) black. Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman was of the opinion whoever does so should be put to death 
Sadly, these rabble rousers fail to mention this was the opinion of Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman and NOT of the Prophet (p).
Their deception is worse still
However, their deception gets worse as the context of the statement is omitted (though it is in the SAME segment of the book) as this statement would have been made within the back-drop of ANYBODY who alters the description of the Prophet being considered a disbeliever and even liable to execution:
Habib ibn ar-Rabi’ said that it is disbelief to alter his description and its details. The one who does that openly is an unbeliever. He is asked to repent. The one who conceals it is a heretic and is killed without being asked to repent. 
So we see the problem was not racism but the problem could have been that of altering the description of the Prophet.
To highlight their deception further we can look at the quote they use:
Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, Sahnun’s companion, said that whoever says that the Prophet was black is killed. The Prophet was not black 
However, they do not quote the paragraph immediately below which further shows the issue was not racism but the issue being, stating falsehoods which constitute denial:
Abu ‘Uthman al Haddad said something similar and said that if someone said that the Prophet died before his beard began to grow or that he was in Tahart (Morocco) and not Tihama, he is killed because this constitutes denial. 
Let’s be realistic
During such a time there may have been a racist undercurrent amongst the ignorant/hypocrites who used this as a slur (i.e. calling people “black”), thus Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman would have recognised the INTENT was to disparage the Prophet (p) hence his calling for the death of such folk. It is not racist on the part of Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman and it certainly has NO bearing upon Islam!
Sadly, the rabble rousers are not willing to scratch the surface or attempt to be intellectually honest – they work agendas to mud sling at Muslims and Islam.
I feel this attack against Islam is simply a devious design to stem the conversion to Islam amongst our brothers and sisters in African communities as Islam has resonated well amongst Afro-Caribbean communities in the West (and beyond) and many are leaving Christianity for the Truth of Islam.
Obviously Islam is against racism
Islam does not condone racism at all. In fact, the real criteria for judgement (in Islam) is that of conduct, NOT skin colour – this is learned through the holy Quran 
Muslims believe there were black Prophets (in fact Prophets of every skin colour) as Allah (God) sent warners to every nation. 
Muslims respect and love ALL Prophets (p). In addition, some companions of Prophet Muhammad (p) were indeed black in skin colour (the most well-known is Bilal), thus some of our saintly predecessors are indeed black!
Obviously Islam is not racist.
The Prophet considered racism as “ignorance”
When his Arab Companion Abu Dharr called Bilal ‘son of the black woman’, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) got angry and told him: ‘You are a man who has ignorance in him.’ Abu Dharr felt such a great remorse that he put his cheek on the ground and asked Bilal to tread on his other cheek if he’d like to. 
Imam Shabir Ally on racism
 The citations Islamophobic rabble rousers are using:
Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun, said, “Anyone who says that the Prophet was black should be killed.” (p. 375)
Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, Sahnun’s companion, said that whoever says that the Prophet was black is killed. The Prophet was not black. (p 387)

 O mankind! Lo! We have created you from male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware. [Pikthal’s English translation of Quran, 49:13]
 Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi writes:
Allah has mentioned in the Qur’an that He sent Messengers and guides among all people. Allah Almighty says: “ And verily We have raised in every nation a messenger, (proclaiming): Serve Allah and shun false gods. Then some of them (there were) whom Allah guided, and some of them (there were) upon whom error had just hold. Do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for the deniers!.” (An-Nahl: 36) He Almighty also says, “There was not any community except a Warner who lived among them.” (Fatir :24).
In his Musnad, Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal has stated that Allah sent 124, 000 Prophets, and from among them 315 were Messengers.

 In his famous Farewell Pilgrimage sermon, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) declared: “O people! You are all to Adam and Adam was made of dust. No Arab is to be preferred over a non-Arab except by virtue of his piety.” In another hadith, he (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Allah does not look at your images or your colors but He looks at your hearts (intentions) and your deeds. Creatures are the dependants of Allah and the closest among them to Allah are indeed the most useful to His dependants.”
