The Beloved's Call

The Beloved's Call

Should the colour of our skin determine how we are treated?
Does being of another, mean that we are easy game?

That our capabilities are less?
That we cannot be as nuanced of another's cultural vibes?

Could Bilal (ra) pronounce the Arabic call to prayer perfectly?
Did that make his adhan any less beloved?

And on the last Arafat,
We heard his Messenger's (saw) call.

That all men are equal,
Not some more than others.
