00:00:28--> 00:01:17

Muslims among most generous in overall US population the study says so I want to share this a few I thought was very, very intriguing. And it starts off like this Muslims United States gave an estimated 4.3 billion billion dollars to charity in 2020, making them one of the most generous religious groups in the US and new study has found that let's go ahead and skip through this article where it talks about Muslims the United States gave an estimated 4.3 billion to charity in 2020, making them one of the most generous religious groups in the US a new study has found you can go ahead and look this study up and you can look up this art article. So by Dan parks

00:01:18--> 00:01:48

says we have always known that American Muslims are exceedingly generous and philanthropic charity is a central pillar in the Islamic faith and deeply entrenched into our way of life. Another quote here, Muslim Americans are stepping up to play an important role in making our world a nation better despite facing prejudice, greater scrutiny and having fewer resources said shriek. Sidiki assistant professor Alright, so this is a very interesting article here I wanted to share with you guys

00:01:49--> 00:02:39

because it's contrary to usually what the average person gets to see of Islam and Muslims on the daily media machine. So I think that this would be a great, a great piece for some of the local stations and even some of the bigger stations worldwide to pick up this story. This is huge. So and then linked it to how can people what's motivating Muslims to be so generous? What's it about their faith? What is it about Islam? Because that's the driving force Islam because others will have you believe that Islam is a driving force, to violence to terrorism. I mean, total hogwash and nonsense. That just stinks. It really stinks. And for anybody who's intelligent, I mean, it's it's just

00:02:39--> 00:03:20

amazing. Many academics, many people like Jordan Peterson, and others who've fallen for this and they've said some as it's been pointed out by many Muslims, they've they've made some really, some blunders, huge blunder and these are academics. People are supposed to be reading enlightened, smart, but they also they get affected by the hate machine by the negative by the false propagandists out there. So what's the driving force to motivate these Muslims out there and again, Muslim what's a Muslim Muslim is one who submits his or her will to the Creator of the heavens and earth the same way Jesus did Moses, Abraham, the last and final Mr. Pro Muhammad, peace be upon him.

00:03:20--> 00:03:59

Ah, that's what a Muslim is the one who follows Islam. Islam is calling the human being to know his create tour, to know why you've been created, what's the purpose of life and then to follow it to submit not to your desires, not to human being, not to money, fame, power, but to submit to the creator of the human being the creator of the universe, and everything in it, the one and only God Almighty Allah. This is the creator, the one that Jesus worship. So this is what Islam and this is what a Muslim is, and what's driving Muslims to do that to be the most charitable, charitable, is this deep devotion, this consciousness of their creator and the afterlife, knowing that this life is

00:03:59--> 00:04:44

short, so Muslim, is preparing because the Quran is a verbatim Word of God Almighty and has a deep description has a detailed description of the afterlife. So one of the ways to achieve greater ranks to get more rewards more of the mercy from God Almighty, the Creator Allah is giving and charity. This is a way to keep one away from the hellfire and it has to be based on that pure monotheism Of course, and then implementing the five pillars of Islam and then giving back being altruistic giving back to humanity giving back to the poor, the poor have rights over us and Islam. Is that driving force that's helping that's motivating Muslims to be the most generous So get to know Islam, get to

00:04:44--> 00:05:00

know your Muslim visit a mosque, and hopefully share this share this with email this story to some of the local stations, the news outlets, CNN, Fox News, all these and and advise them, encourage them to share stories like
