One of the things that makes Islam so great is that Charity (Zakat, Sadaqah etc) is built in as one of the pillars of Islam. Muslims are always getting a raw deal – they are slated in the media and the general public look upon Muslims as ‘terrorists’. This is not the image of Muslims that we want and everyone should be doing something about that because as a Muslim, we ALL give in charity.
Charity in Islam can be anything from a smile to removing something harmful from the road to helping people and giving money and your personal effort and time in charity. These are amazing characteristics that Muslims should be bringing into their daily lives. Being charitable and helping others is one way of showing others that Muslims are good, sincere people who are abiding their lives by the Commands of Allah, which are Perfect and Good for everyone.
Under this section, I will try to show examples of charity and encourage Muslims to be charitable. In doing so, you will… Stand Up 4 Islam!
