It is a very busy day here at ACT! Jonesboro blog. The Scarlet Pimpernel exposes the fallacy of Islamic “charity” or Zakat – Burkasrugly
One of the Five Pillars of Islam is the practice of Zakat. Zakat is an Arabic term best translated as charity. It is an annual 2.50% assessment of a Muslim’s net worth to be given to charity. So far, this appears to be a laudable practice.
There are eight categories of those who can receive Zakat or charity. Zakat is always divided equally among these eight classes of worthy recipients. So this means each class receives 12 1/2%. Some of these classes are the poor, the injured, slaves and those who administer the zakat program. So far, this all sounds wonderful.
But here’s the rub ! No charitable distributions are to ever go to non-Muslims. Here is a quotation from the Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law, “If they are non-Muslims, they are not given Zakat.” (h 8:14). Does this explain why the oil rich Saudis did not give the first red cent to the poor nation of Haiti after the devastating earthquake of two years ago? Go figure.
Islamic charity is a tool to buy the loyalty of Muslims around the world. It always comes with strings attached .
But it gets even uglier. Jihad is one of the eight classes of approved charity. It is the seventh approved cause for the giving of charity. “The seventh category are those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations.” To elaborate further, “They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing and expenses round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged.” (h 8:18).
In all likelihood, the 9/11 atrocities were financed by Islamic charity. Billions are raised for jihad each and every year by Muslims. Thus, in Islam it is a charitable act to murder your fellow human beings simply because they belong to another religion. If you don’t believe me consult the Reliance of the Traveller, section H. All of my supporting quotes come from the chapter H on Zakat. Also, remember this book is binding on all Muslims, not just the ones we have erroneously labeled as “radical Muslims.”
