There are tons charities out there that need help. From child abuse to homelessness, there is always a cause that relies on the kindness of others to survive. With that said, many people are wary of donating money to Muslim charities. There are many reasons to ignore the stigma associated with this and offer what you can.
The first problem that people have is separating Muslims from the extremists that are known for their acts of terrorism. It is certainly not fair to an entire subset of people to judge them based on the wrongdoings of a few. There is inherently wrong when you are unable to separate them since the result is that many individuals who need it are left without help.
Just as with all other people, there are Muslims out there who suffer from health issues, lack of food and trouble associated with not being able to provide for their families and make ends meet.
When you give money to charity, it is usually tax-deductible. This means that you should be able to get a credit on your tax bill by doing things to give back to the community. It may not seem very noble to give money to charity just so you can decrease your amount of tax liability, but the fact that you are willing to help those in need is still something that you should feel proud of.
Cultural differences are shattering the American people. It seems like they are so interested in finding differences with one another and faulting people for them that they do not spend enough time trying to embrace the culture of others. Instead of allowing yourself to remain ignorant about others’ culture, you should consider embracing them, learning about what makes them unique and doing what you can to assist.
These days, many parents leave it up to others to teach their children good values. Things like giving, compassion, humility, and acceptance are sometimes hard to come by. If you are a parent, it is your job to instill these values in your child. Being very open with them about offering help to others is one way to do that. If you raise them to help others when needed and extend a hand even if it means having less for themselves, they will grow up to be kind-hearted people with the highest level of nobility.
As you can tell, there are several excellent reasons for you to donate time and money to a Muslim charity. The reality is that you should place yourself in their shoes and imagine needing something that people were not willing to provide. That alone should give you sufficient motivation to do everything in your power to make a difference.
