Letter Title: “National Native American Heritage Month“
November is National Native American Heritage Month which celebrates the diversity, culture, history, and traditions of the Native Americans. Islam promotes equity for all people despite their differences.
In the Holy Quran, God states, “O mankind, We have created you from a male and a female, and We have made you into tribes and sub-tribes for the sake of easy recognition. Verily, the most honorable among you, in the sight of God, is the most righteous among you. Surely, God is All-Knowing, All-Aware” (49:14). This verse acknowledges that the whole human race is but one family. The division into tribes, nations, and ethnicities is meant to give them a better knowledge of one another to benefit from their national characteristics and good qualities.
Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be on him) once said, “Neither an Arab has superiority over a non-Arab, nor a non-Arab over an Arab. A white person is not superior to a black person, nor is a black superior to a white person. The most honorable among you in the sight of God is the one who is the most righteous.”
Let us appreciate and acknowledge all our fellow Native Americans’ contributions and spread equity amongst each other.
