Dal Nun Strong has a very detailed investigation into the state of charitable giving amongst Muslims. It is spread out across five blog posts:
The first post in the series looked at the religious obligations imposed on Muslims to give charity, and the new status for charity in a minority Muslim community in a modern secular state
The second post examined the statistics about how much Muslims in Britain gave to charities, and compared trends for British Muslims against the wider community.
The fourth post looked at new demands placed on charities both from regulatory authorities and donors to track the use of charitable money right through to the intended recipient.
The final part of this series will concentrate on some of the unwelcome conclusions which Muslims should draw from this survey – that we appear to be less-generous donors than the mainstream, despite the religious imperatives of the 4th pillar. Are Muslims simply failing to give to charity as much as their religion demands?
