U.S. Muslims Approve of Obama's First 100 Days

By SOP newswire2

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said in his last sermon: All mankind is from Adam and Eve. An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black, nor a black has any superiority over a white - except by piety and good action. "

Abu Dharr said the Prophet told him: You are not better than people (of other races) unless you excel them in piety."

Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1361

Gallup Poll Daily tracking during President Obama`s first 100 days in office finds broad support for him among Americans affiliated with most major U.S. religions. U.S. Muslims and Jews give Obama his highest job approval ratings, at 85% and 79%, respectively. He also receives solid majority support from Roman Catholics (67%) and Protestants (58%), and more approval than disapproval from Mormons.
