By birth all humans are equal

I am a Muslim, my mother-tongue is Tamil. By the grace of Almighty Allah, I performed Haj in 1995 (Hijri 1415) with my wife. It was pleasant memory to visit the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah. My ancestors came from Cairo by ship more than 1000 years ago for business and settled down in Kayalpattinam.

The famous Moroccan Traveller Ibn Battuta and Venetian Traveller Marco Polo had visited and written about this town vividly in their travel log. Our beloved first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehruji also in his famous book "Discovery of India" written about Kayalpatnam as an important port in southern region of India flourishing with business and commerce by trading with other countries.

This town is also considered as the religious and cultural centre of Islam in this part of our country. There are about 750 Hafilul Quran and 350 Ulama in this town, among them considerable number of women also find their place.

Kayalpattinam ( Located in the South East Coast of India, Latitude - 8�34' N, Longitude - 78�07' E ) is nearly 600 Km down south from Chennai (Madras) City. Chennai is where I am presently in for business purpose. There are few unique things about my home town that most of the Kayalites, including myself, are happy about.

KMT Hospital. More than just a hospital. A spot to retreat and for Leisure.
United Sports Club. Home of Soccer. Abode of an annual All India Soccer Tournament.
The Beach. Long, Clean and Sandy. A pleasure in the evenings for hundreds, Me included.

Almighty Allah says in his Holy Qur-an, Surat Al Hujurat (Chapter - 49, Verse - 13).

O Mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a Male and Female, And make 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).

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in his last Sermon (Hajjathul Widha)

All mankind is from Adam and Hawwa. An Arab is not superior over a Non-Arab nor is a Non-Arab superior over an Arab; also a White is not superior over a Black nor is a Black superior over a White; except by Piety and Good Action. YOU ARE ALL EQUAL. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves. O People! No Prophet or Apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore, O People! and understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Qur�an and my Sunnah (i.e., sayings, deeds, and approvals) and if you follow these you will never go astray.

Universality and Oneness : "The Whole World Is One Family" (Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam) sums up the Indian spirit according to which "Humanity Is One" (Ekaiva Manushi Jatih) without divisions of colour, religion, belief, sex or social origin. The whole creation is seen as profoundly interconnected.

I wish to inform that I had put My Genealogy chart only for knowing my family tree and with no intention to claim any superiority being descendant of Khaleefa Ameerul Moimineen Abubakr Siddeeq (Ral). I don't claim this Genealogy to be cent percent authentic and I also acknowledge there will be some minor mistakes in names or in order. Islam clearly states that no one can claim superiorty by birth, Only Prayer (Men with Thaqwa) and Good Deeds make one closer to Almighty Allah.

My Invocation "Our Lord! Give us Good in this world and Good in the Hereafter. And save us all from the Hellfire. O my Lord! make me One who establishes regular Prayer, And also (raise such) Among my offspring, O our Lord! And accept Thou my Prayer. O our Lord! cover (us) with thy Forgiveness-Me, My parents, and (all) Believers, On the Day that the Reckoning will be established. O my Lord! Expand me my (Knowledge and Affections) breast; Ease my task for me And remove the impediment From my speech.

Our Lord! reward my parents for what they has done for me and my family, and for what they has given us to help us in this life, and in the next. Our Lord! have mercy on us all and guide us on the straight path of the Qur-an and Sunnah, AAMEEN!

Please don't forget to remember Me, My family, and the rest of the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in your prayers. May Allah reward you all with good (Jazak Allahu Khairan).

Holy Qur-an, Surat As Saffat - Chapter - 37, Verse - 180 - 182

Glory to the Lord, The Lord of Honour and Power! (He is free) from what they ascribe (To Him)! And Peace on the messengers! And Praise to Allah, The Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds.
