As highlighted by Shaykh [Saleem Dhorat] Islam is a blessing for one and all:
“The teachings of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam are so comprehensive and effective that they have served to tear the barriers of racism and prejudice which unfortunately affect many societies. For example Bilal radiallahu anhu, who was a slave from Abyssinia, was granted such a lofty status after the advent of Islam that he remained the Mu’adhin of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam throughout the Prophet’s sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam lifetime.
And it was this same Bilal who was chosen to give the Adhaan from on top of the Ka’bah on the historic occasion of the conquest of Makkah.”
