Third Topic

In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate.

O mankind! We created you from a single [pair] of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other.1

That is, “I created you as peoples, nations, and tribes, so that you should know one another and the relations between you in social life, and assist one another; not so that you should regard each other as strangers, refusing to acknowledge one another, and nurturing hostility and enmity.”
