49:13; CROSSING THE RACIAL BOUNDARY…..

Quran: 49.013
YUSUFALI’S TRANSLATION: 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).

I am walking along the river, and having just read this ayah, my sensitivity is heightened and I notice that Allah SWT puts in the hearts of ordinary people, compassion, love and the desire to know each others tribe even if they are a world apart. Am I that open hearted? Are You?
