you couldn't be more right brother/sister in faith in faith coz in islam it doesn't matter if u r black, white, arabic , asian , latior latin you are all brothers.In islam nobody is born in their cultures he/she is born in islam. Bayla every one in the world is born in islam & not in their ethinicity you were born a muslim. Islam is the total submission to God i.e you don't serve any other but Allah. One's ethnicity should not influence a muslim's actions or thoughts. Every minute of a muslims life should be in the worship of Allah. Eating is worship , sleeping , doing anything not forbidden in islam is worship even getting together tightening family & community ties socialising in reccomended manner. Islam is not the culture of arabs. Arabs had their own culture which like all cultures in the world are not perfect. Islam is perfect coz it is what God reccommended for mankind. In every worldly culture culture there is good & bad sides of the culture but islam has no bad side except for the evil.

Reminding each other is strongly reccommended coz it creates love & people get used of hearing ,seeing & feeling good. Every community is adviced to stand up for it's right & islam stresses this point. Only under islam did the people of every ethnicity live in perfect harmony.The mideast only thrived during the time it was under islam. Only isalm united Arabia and now you hear people tailking about Arab nationalism what a joke!. Africa was looted & humiliated by the west coz of their lack of unity. Even in a non muslim land it is mandatory for a muslim to fight if their peace is invaded. Islam encourages unity of muslims and doing good. Islam thrived during the days of the prophete coz their ethnicity was put aside. Islam conqured north Africa which was part of the Ottoman Empire. but now they are Arab nationalists. what does arab nationalism have to do in a muslim dominated area. In somalia what does African nationalism have to do their. Nationalism has nothing to do in any country nor arab or africa nationalism in a place where it never was. west africa had one of the great universities in africa. The region was rich, very many people and a very high life expectancy. At the time london had a population of 20000 and Timbuktu had 115000 people 25000 in university &20000 in school. TIMBUKTU an African Islamic university. The French looted it. That is the only African nationalism for that matter. A continent like Europe or America should not be what we the people of Africa aspire to be . We are aspiring to be as we once were back in the days only this time prepared & more developed.

Islam is the answer to the whole world not one's unity to their kith & kin. the west is not as united as it looks it is the weakest coz of it's hypocricy. Governments built on lies and deception. The people in the West are lost except a few whos voices are drown. People are fixated on riches & immoral stuff.

So keep up the good spirit preach islam the more coz it is going to be as alianated as it once was by all this secularism and false nationalism unde no equal grounds .

peace
