Uma irmandade mundial etnicamente diversa, baseada na f, cujo profeta falou contra o racismo h mais de 1400 anos.

Hi!

Although I m not that good at translations word by word, since I don t use them to teach English or Spanish, and usually don t join threads about translation, I tend to agree with yours. It sounds perfectly acceptable to me.

Have a nice day.
