I hate that a universal message — its perpetual refrain is, “O mankind!” — is made particular. That a way which speaks of a fellowship of humanity as a whole is made tribal, serving the few.
“O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that you may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of God, is the best in conduct. Lo! God is knowing, aware.”Quran 49:13
