    what are the bad aspects of Atheism
    Atheism is tricky, as there's no universal set of beliefs or practices.

    Apart from not believing in God. Which is a bad aspect for those with a religion, and a good aspect for those without a religion.

    (Btw, I'm not up for a debate or discussion about the good and bad aspects of different religions/cultures right now. Perhaps better to make a thread if you want a discussion on it :lol:)

    Some have deep seated hatreds against muzzies (regardless of how they try to thinly veil it behind criticising)

    The People Eligible for Zakah
    Issue 384: There are a few conditions regarding the people eligible for Zakah (Mustahiqqoon):

    First, is that (the people receiving Zakah) have faith (Imaan) in Allah, the Honorable Prophet, peace be upon him and his family, and the twelve A’immah, upon them be peace.

    Muslims can donate to other charities, I regularly do...

    And once again :

    - Many charities focus on specific causes anyway. If one charity wants to only help needy Muslims, so what? If help for heroes only want to help British troops, so what?

    Perhaps because Syria is in a civil war and 6.5 million people have been displaced because of this? The UK has some problems, yes, but Syria is in a whole other category. The people there need more help.

    Yes I know that (how many times do I need to acknowledge this fact?) Probably more than most Muslims will acknowledge zakat isn't charity and can't be given to non-muslims (according to the majority view that is)

    Did you read the article properly? If not, I'll reiterate it just for you.
    • "Other Charitable projects included
      • Helping those affected by the floods in Carlisle
      • Helping people in Palestine and Pakistan to start honey-bee farms
      • Distributing hygiene kits and food in Haiti
      • Building ‘micro-dams’ in Mali to harness water from flash floods to be used during the dry season
      • 300 volunteers delivering 22,000 chocolate cakes to be eaten at the end of the day when the Ramadan fast is broken. Cakes cost £10 each and all proceeds went to provide humanitarian relief in Syria
      • Running soup kitchens for homeless people in Britain"

    Yes that's right whats the point of correcting me if the original 'wrong' information is still available (and it is available on an awful lot of Muslim websites who must all be wrong)

    You'd think correcting such a massive mistake would be a worthwhile thing
    You're clearly a graduate from the Daily Mail school of ethics

    God it's almost like some people get really upset when aspects of their faith are posted

    It's almost like they are embarrassed about it or something
    Zakat is not allowed to be given to Non-Muslims because they do not have to contribute to the fund.

    Considering the money was also spent on helping those affected by the recent floods in Carlisle and giving hygiene kits and food in Haiti, I am more inclined to believe that this was done in the form of Sadaqah rather than Zakat. Either way, they raised money and helped people in need. Can we not congratulate them?

    I like how we are always able to turn something positive into something negative here. :rolleyes:
