Humans: Unity and Diversity

Humans are one nation of various colours and nature:

“Indeed, Allah, the Most High, created Adam (upon him be peace) from a handful which He took from the whole of the earth; so the children of Adam are in accordance with the earth: some of them are red, some white, some black, some a mixture (of them), and (again) some are simple, some rough, some bad and some good.” (Tirmidhi Shareef 3213)

"‏ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى خَلَقَ آدَمَ (عليه السلام) مِنْ قَبْضَةٍ قَبَضَهَا مِنْ جَمِيعِ الأَرْضِ فَجَاءَ بَنُو آدَمَ عَلَى قَدْرِ الأَرْضِ فَجَاءَ مِنْهُمُ الأَحْمَرُ وَالأَبْيَضُ وَالأَسْوَدُ وَبَيْنَ ذَلِكَ وَالسَّهْلُ وَالْحَزْنُ وَالْخَبِيثُ وَالطَّيِّبُ ‏"‏ ‏.
