  • Yes anyone who beleives in Islam and follows its rules is considered a muslim by all people. The people who won't consider them muslims aren't really muslims but racist. Islam encourages all muslims to consider anyone muslim as long as he does its rules like praying and fasting Ramadan.
  • If you are talking about "The Nation of Islam", the answer is no. If you are just referring to race in general, they consider anyone who follows Islam real Muslims regardless of race. Not that there is not racism among Muslims, but it usually has nothing to do with religion.
  • Most do and some don't - you often hear of tension between Arab Muslims and Black Muslims in Africa, sometimes they unite against tribal or Christian minorities (which is the kind of conflict we tend to hear most about), yet often a tension can remain, just masked by a greater enemy. --- The vocal people in the Muslim world never seems to be in as much uproar about violence against African Muslims as it does Arab Muslims. Maybe that could be because of a Muslim pecking order, maybe because the opponents to the Arab Muslims are seen as worse, or maybe it is both.
  • Islam came to demolish racism. In Islam, there is no difference between Arabs and non-Arabs or between whites and blacks. . Allah Almighty states in the Noble Quran: . [13] "O mankind! We (Allah) have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa (the pious who fears Allah). Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware." [The Noble Quran 49:13] . Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: . "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. 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."
