Did you know that there are only four prophets in Islam that are Arab? All the other prophets are non-Arabs. I learned this while taking an Arabic class with Bayyinah institute taught by Nouman Ali Khan (I highly recommend his classes and Bayyinah institute).
The four Arab prophets were Muhammad, Shu’ayb, Salih and Hud (peace and blessings be upon them all).
This is surprising to me, because this completely destroys the idea that Arabs are “more Islamic” even though we have the most popular and widely quoted last sermon of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) saying “an arab is not better than a non-arab nor is a white greater than a black except in taqwa”. The fact that the majority of Prophets of Allah are non-Arab is also proof that Islam came for everyone and is for everyone.
I know many of you will be like, wow big deal, but the way Bro. Nouman explained it made my eyes wide open. He also said a lot of other amazing stuff which I may or may not share inshaAllah.
