Can you provide Qur’an and Hadees references about the superiority of one race over another?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Jamia Binoria
Assalamu Alaikum May Allah reward amply and honor you as you are rendering the service of spreading Islam in this era of evil. Aameen. I am Suhail, a Pakistani national residing and employed in United Arab Emirates. Here almost people of every nationality are doing employment. I am employed here in a well established telecom company. There are Arabs from Palestine who are working with me. Don’t know why they think themselves as very superior than others and they do not have any care to Pakistan, Indian or Bangle Desh

nationals. They behave with us as if we are Kafirs. They do not like to eat with us or drink with us and to the extent that they do not even shake hands with us at times. And they plainly say that ‘we are Arabs and our status is superior than you all’. I am so much worried about their behavior. I like to explain them that before 1450 years, Hadhrath Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam had erased this difference and I want to quote references from Qur’an and Hadees but due to my lack of knowledge in Deen I am unable to do this. I studied the website of darsequran a lot and mailed them. They gave your address and asked to contact your Darul Iftha. Sir, I need Qur’an Ayaths and Ahadees connected to this matter and you will be greatly appreciated if you could please send them. Allah will reward you for this and I will be waiting for your reply.

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

The problem explained by you is infect based on mentality of ignorance and unawareness of Qur’an and Hadees. During the Era of Ignorance people use to boast on one another on superiority over the differences of pedigree and lineage, language and color but Islam had erased all these concepts of ignorance and declared the standard of nearness to Allah as Thaqwa and piety as clearly manifested in the following Quraani Aayaath and Blessed Ahaadees..
