Surah Al-Hujurat Verse 13 [49:13]

يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَٰكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَٰكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَآئِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوٓا۟ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَتْقَىٰكُمْ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ ﴿13﴾

O people! Indeed, We have created you from a male and a female, and We have made you [different] nations and tribes that you may know one another [, so you should know that these differences are not the criteria for any kind of superiority. ] Indeed, the dearest of you in the sight of God are the most pious of you. Indeed God is All-Knowing, All-Aware.

Commentary Surah Al-Hujurat Verse 13 [49:13]

It is God who has created mankind male and female. Both of them are human being with different qualities and characteristic. Man perfect woman and woman perfect man. They should marry and perfect each other. Even though man is the responsible of the family but the value of them are same and the only criterion for human superiority is the degree of their taqwā judged only by God. God who has created man and woman has created them in different region and land, so people are known by their region, tribe and community yet none of these differences are the criterion for their superiority. All of the mankind with different races, languages etc. are same and respected. The only criterion to be judged as superior and dearer is the degree of taqwā judged only by God, thus the wisest and dearest one was chosen by God as the messenger of God because people cannot recognize the degree of the taqwā of others because it is the matter of unseen and spirit.
