Never assume anything unless you actually know the facts. Don't believe everything you think. It's unbecoming and dangerous.


Muslim countries were also very generous when the terrible Tsunami hit 3 years ago. If you knew anything about Islam , you would know that actually Charity is a huge part of the Religion . Simply because your news sources /government don't tell you about doesn't mean it's not happening.



International response to Hurricane Katrina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Most Katrina Aid From Overseas Went Unclaimed - washingtonpost.com

Christians do not have the monopoly on charity, kindness or generosity of spirit as odd and alien a concept as this may seem to you.

To begin with :

The Muslim News

Trend News: U.S. Muslim charity organization to provide Haiti with urgent aid

My question is, why do you need media coverage to get involved? Is there an Embargo to which Muslim countries can't send aid anywhere without US approval?

However, unlike the OP, I am aware that aid from Muslim organizations in America, is headed to Haiti. not sure about Muslim countries though.

However, let me just add, I would not want to asssume, that every brother or sister that is helping out in Haiti, from other places, are of the Christian faith. God bless them anyway!!
About other religions, etc., whether there are charities/relief agencies in Haiti, I don't personally know, probably are, but I do know (including my brother-in-law, a doctor in a neighboring county, and literally dozens of Christian missionaries and a few others) that some Christian charities and relief organizations and some of those people themselves now or in past HAVE BEEN IN HAITI FOR MANY YEARS, long before latest disaster, including MANY hurricanes, floods, landslides, civil uprisings, famines, the list goes on and on, and have poured their lives into Haiti (and other countries, too, including here in good ole USA, Hurricane's Katrina and Rita included). God Bless these people, the work they do, and may God look after their safety, and especially, God Bless the Haitians themselves. As for people of other faiths, etc., that are contributing to the relief effort... God Bless them as well, and thanks to all that are doing this.

Default Israel sending relief to Haiti

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israel is sending a relief package to Haiti, including a field hospital and rescue unit.

The aid, which includes 220 Israel Defense Forces personnel, among them Home Front Command rescue teams and Medical Corps teams, is scheduled to leave Israel Thursday evening.

The field hospital, which will be able to serve 500 patients a day, will include 40 doctors, 25 nurses, paramedics, a pharmacy, a children's ward, a radiology department, an intensive care unit, an emergency room, two operating rooms, a surgical department, an internal department and a maternity ward.

The Israel team, which will arrive on two Boeing 747 airplanes, is expected to stay two weeks.

Are there any Muslim relief efforts out there?? I really want to know....


Imo questions like this are just one of the reasons Christians are seen in a questionable light. You seem to think you are the only group who gives to those in need.

Why don't you just give and not worry about whether others are giving or not? Christians are not the only religion to give and yes Muslims give much for disaster relief.
It's hard for me to believe that someone hasn't heard of the Red Crescent--the Muslim version of the Red Cross with the name changed for obvious reasons (to them, anyway-the Red Cross has nothing to do with Christianity and everything to do with the Swiss flag, but I guess Muslims are sensitive to anything involving a cross.)

And it's not just Muslim foreigners--local mosques also run food pantries on an every day basis just like other religious organizations.

I'm always a little perplexed with questions like this--do the posters REALLY not know any Muslims personally???? I don't mean in a "one of my best friends is a Muslim" sense, but surely you work with, go to school with, do business with, or live near Muslims!

I've heard of the Red Crescent for many years, and I'm from the countryside in Ky., for heaven's sakes. Several fellow health professionals in my area are Muslims, as well as acquaintances from college that date back to the late 70's/early 80's. God Bless them as well, an though I'm not Muslim, I have a lot of respect for the Red Crescent and the relief work they do. By the way, when I was in college, the term "Moslem" was heard more than "Muslim", is this simply a different was of spelling it/saying it, or is there another reason behind the spelling change (I know translating from Arabic to English or any language to any other language for that matter can be difficult .. sometimes I also hear people say "Mooslem"). Just a country boy from Ky. wondering. Peace, and have a great day!

Muslims donated $800.000 as of yesterday and although I'am a christian I have no idea how much aid has come from christian organizations for Haiti and it's really a moot point. The entire world
is in this horrible disaster. May God bless our Muslim friends and everyone "giving" from their hearts.
