An Afghan Muslimah married a man from Gambia. Here's what she has to say about the whole thing:
"Salam my name is Faiqa,24 recently got married Alhamdulillah. My husband is Gambian and I am afghan and of course coming from an afghan background and getting married from not just outside the culture but a different race you would think would be a difficult journey and for many unfortunately it is. But Alhamdulillah by the will of Allah our journey was eased for us and both families came together in happiness and put deen before culture."
“O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.” (Surah Al-Hujurât 49:13)
Rasulullah (SAW) said: “All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any “superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.” (A part from Rasulullah (SAW)’S last sermon).
