A BLOND BABY BORN OUT OF BLACK PARENTS
My apologies for the terms 'blond' and 'black', but sometimes we are just compelled to use racial jargon to talk about a racial issue. Well, this is a picture of a blond baby who has been born out of black parents.
Dr. Brian skies has described this phenomena as 'exceptional'. He said: so that the baby becomes completely white, there should be white origins in his family tree. The reason behind is the racial mixture that women can hold black and white genes that are transfered afterwards to the baby. (According to Times Magazine)
A similar story happened when a man from the suburbs came to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and told him: "O Prophet of God, my wife has begotten a black baby, while our family is white." The Prophet (pbuh) replied: do you have camels? The man said: Yes. The Prophet said and what's their colors? The man said: they are redish. The Prophet replied: are there any black camels? The man said: no. The Prophet asked if there were camels of mulatto kind. The man said: yes. So, the Prophet replied: so maybe your son has a genetic resemblance to one of his forebears.
The way the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) handled the situation was very logical and wise, because Arab people before the advent of Islam were extermely sensitive to any event of this kind. For the way they handled problems, they could have waved stories or waged wars and raised the issue to the level of honor crimes. In fact, the teachings of the Prophet were a revolution against traditional, extremist beliefs that prevailed among people before the advent of Islam. Second, the way he explained the event was not in any way contraditory to what Dr. Brian skies and his comtemporaries explained as a genetic event.
