Religion, Language and Races


Some see language as a yardstick that should be defining the religion of Islam. Maybe one should read more and understand that most all scholars agree that language is a gift from God. Muslims are not merely Malays and the majority of Muslims do not even speak Malaysian's Malay. Being Muslim transcends the barrier of language, race, culture, history and geography. Sad to know that some think you're a less Muslim for being able to converse in a language other than the ordinary. Maybe this is why non Muslims in Malaysia are having a difficult time to get acquainted with Islam. They are afraid that they have to become Malays instead of being Muslims. How sad. God created mankind and He had made them into various races. Who are we to deny what made us colourful humans?
