Muslims give more money to charity. Not for humanity but for heaven.

Muslims give more money to charity. than people of other religions. The survey has been done only in the UK, so Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and other lion-hearted atheist donors are not in the list. It can be true that Muslims give more money to charity than people of other religions.

More than three in 10 Muslims, Catholics and Jews donated money during 2012, ICM Research found.
Followers of Islam gave an average of $567 compared to Jewish givers who donated around $412, according to the survey of just over 4,000 people in the U.K.
Christians gave considerably less. Protestants donated an average of $308, while Roman Catholics gave around $272, the poll found. Atheists averaged just $177.
In total 4,036 people answered the question: “How much, if at all, would you say you generally donated to charities last year?”
Respondents were asked to exclude buying items from charity stores or sponsoring someone for a charity activity.
The finding follows a recent Pew Research Center survey of more than 38,000 Muslims in 39 countries, which found that 77 percent said they donated to charity.
Data from the online platform JustGiving.com also shows that Muslims are increasingly using online methods for their Zakat — the Muslim practice of charitable donations — with a growth of close to 70 percent over the last two years.
“Our data shows many of Britain’s Muslim communities are at the forefront of digital giving, driving an increase in Zakat donations,” Zarine Kharas, their CEO explained.

I am happy for those Muslims who give charity and for those who receive it. It’s such a great thing for humanity. But why do Muslims give charity? Is it because they care about humanity? Maybe it is not important what motivates them to be so generous, they are generous, that’s the great thing. But my curious mind doesn’t stop here. It starts to find the reason of Muslims being kind and nice. The reason is: Allah asks Muslims to give zakat from the part of their income to poor Muslims. Muslims follow the orders of Allah because Allah promises them heaven if they do.

72huris

Muslims have to believe in five pillars of Islam if they want to go to heaven. The pillars are: (1). Believing in the Oneness of Allah and that Muhammad as His Prophet; (2). Offering daily five prayers to Allah; (3) Fasting in the month of Ramadan; (4). Giving Zakat [alms] to the indigent Muslims and (5) Performing Hajj in Mecca at least once in one’s lifetime, if one is physically able to do it.
Would they give zakat to poor non-Muslims or poor atheists? They would not. They would have given, if they were really concerned about humanity. But it is not the case. They ask poor Muslims whom they give zakat to pray for them so that they can go to heaven.

paradise
(Allah his Prophet Muhammad frequently promised believers of Islam with lustful heavens and erotic pleasures of various kinds.)

Syed Kamran Mirza gives vivid pictures of heaven where Muslims are desperate to go.

Zakat goes to poor Muslims, zakat also goes to build mosques and madrassas, and goes to Jihad. A percentage of zakat must go towards Jihad. — It is one of the common laws of Islamic Sharia which is practiced in the Sharia-based countries.

The Hadith says:

p.4.427
Heaven has 8 doors. He who prayed will be called from the door of prayer. He who paid zakat will be called from the door of zakat. He who fought will be called from the door of jihad.

Sahih Bukhari; No. 1214.

    Alms for Jihad

    .
    Rich Arab states + invest/donate huge funds to terror linked Islamic organization they call it zakat. Most of the Islamic fund is used for terrorism- not for human suffering or education (except Madrasas ) and to boost more converts. Muslim charities and terrorism are interlinked.

    Charity is the wrong description to use for Muslim zakat. Its fund does not go to any charities like Cancer research or Oxfam- it has to go to Muslim mullahs to be HALAL , otherwise no key for heaven

    US government shutdown following Islamic charities:

    Al Haramain Islamic Foundation-USA (Oregon),
    · Benevolence International Foundation (Illinois),
    · Global Relief Foundation (Illinois),
    · Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (Texas),
    · Islamic American Relief Agency–USA (Missouri) and Goodwill Charitable Organization (Michigan). – UK banned Muslim charities linked to terrorism

    Original article is misleading and the author lack basic requirement of being a journalist – He should provide the necessary data to differentiate the individual and state donations and on its charitable activities

    Muslims individual & state donation goes only to Muslims , hardly any to non Muslims .

    India- a heaven for money laundering to fund terrorism and Zakat is the best device to camouflage the terrorist link .

    Govt happy to blame NGO for illegal activities & funding, but act helpless & spinelessness with Arabs funding of Muslim terrorism. IM of India / Kashmir terrorist funded by Muslim charities

    List is immense.

    I tend to be skeptical that donations to charity necessarily actually go towards solving social problems. Even if it’s not going towards the promotion of theocracy, I’m very suspicious of religious charities. A pastor in my area supplies housing for the homeless, but it’s become widely known through a few news reports and an investigation by the city that he’s more or less using his ‘charity’ just to put warm bodies in his church – in order to be eligible for housing, you have to agree to spend a lot of time in his church, so I’d hardly consider it charity.

    excuse me but there is some thing wrong about the concept “Zakat” , it’s not supporting a terror organizations ; it collects to build hospitals , schools and to give money or buying some food and basic need to live to poor muslim people , and to help the poor muslim countries like “Sudan” in africa , so please be sure from your informations before you publish it next time .
    THIS IS THE REAL “ZAKAT” AND ANOTHER THING UNDER THIS NAME IS COMPLETELY WRONG .
    thank you ..

    Hi and Salaams to all,

    I was searching online for Muslim donation sites and came by this blog. Off course being a Muslim myself i could not believe the thoughts shared by the author. But thinking more about what is mentioned here i kind of managed to relate the weird thoughts to what is actually happening around modern Muslims.

    Being a Bangladeshi, i never lived long enough in Bangladesh. But living here for quiet sometime now i have noticed many wrong interpretations of Islam many times. This isn’t only restricted to Bangladesh but with Muslims in many countries.

    Zakat is one very important part of Islam, for an Islamic state its like a tax and it helps feed the poor and hungry and also give jobs. Begging isn’t a way of life for a Muslim, if need be that one cannot find a job at all then making a living out of wood cutting is best – as per Muhammad(PBUH). I can go on about another prophet named Sulaiman or Solomon but i guess the readers should find out themselves just like i did.

    Coming back to modern Muslims, just recently in 2013 was my second Eid ul Adha, i have seen how people compete at the amount of money they spent for their sacrificial offering or how less they spent and got an enormously large cow. News was spreading on TV about how cattle owners purposefully inject the cows with some kind of chemicals to make them bloat to look big. Similarly, giving Zakat also seems like some competition. Some boast they have donated to a mosque or went on giving money to the poor all throughout the month of Ramadan.

    So that brings me back to what the author has shared and the only last thing that worked in my mind is that she has perfectly related to what modern Muslims get all worked up about. No amount of money or Zakat or size of sacrifice is going to buy any ticket to Jan-nah or Heaven. That is simply the most dumbest idea if anybody has spread it.

    Please Muslims, ask yourselves what if you are poor and you cannot offer these large amounts of Zakat will you not enter the paradise. Being steadfast in prayers and simply being plain and simple may be your ticket.

    Lastly, this is a complete misconception about Zakat and feels like part of desperate smear campaign Islam or someones mad quest to become somebody.

    As for people like me from third world countries, we need to think if our governments collected taxes how come we don’t get unemployment benefits and is our governments even bothered about the percentage of jobless people.
