Inter-Racial Marriages

Everything about inter-racial marriages in The Quran

Everything about inter-racial marriages in The Quran

Interracial marriages are welcomed in Islam and endorsed by many influential Islamic prophets, tribal leaders, and scholars.

A Muslim man, if he so wishes, can find love and happiness with a Christian or Jewish woman provided they live within the guidelines of Muslim family life. During the period of pre-Islamic Arabia (known as the Jahiliyyah era), spiritual leaders including the Prophet Muhammad Ibn Abdullah fought against tribal discrimination within the society he lived in and promoted interracial marriages, using the Quran to support his aim of unity.

“O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other) . Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)”. (Quran 49: 13)

Many Islamic tribes, villages, and large bordering territories use interracial marriages to break down the barriers of intolerance and to unite Muslims.

The marrying of non-Muslim women from foreign nations was a common association that contributed to the growth of Islam within non-Islamic regions and nations with historical significance. From the 9th century a large number of mostly male Arab merchants and buyers from the Middle East inhabited and settled in the Malay Peninsula and Malay Archipelago. They traded with and befriended the Malay peoples and intermarried with the local Malay, Indonesian, and Filipina female populations, resulting in the spread of Islam in Southeast Asia.

It was also common for Arab conquerors and explorers to marry local females in the lands they conquered within various parts of the world and especially Africa.

When it comes to interracial marriages the Islamic and Quranic viewpoint is both undemanding and culturally aware. Muslims are encouraged to set aside all ethnic and ancestral differences and to first and foremost exist and coexist as Muslims.
