Muslims Rank as Most Generous Donor Group in British Survey

byPHILANTHROPY TODAY

A U.K. poll found that Muslims in that nation donate more on average to charity than other religious groups, NBC News reports.

Adherents of Islam gave an average of $567 to charity in 2012, according to the survey of 4,036 U.K. residents by ICM Research. Jews gave $412, Protestants $308, Roman Catholics $272, and atheists $177.

The U.K. findings follow a recent international survey by the Pew Research Center that found that 77 percent of Muslims give to charity, and data from philanthropy Web site JustGiving.com show nearly 70 percent growth in the last two years in Muslims’ use of online methods for Zakat, the Islamic practice of donating to charity.

    yes. they donate to the jihadists.

    Thats how it should be but alas we seem to forget that.

    It should increase after any period of fasting. Whether you fast for Ramadan or fast for Lent or fast for any other religious reason, remember those who are going hungry because they can’t help it, and see that someone eats.

  • Reynardine

    Probably so. Fundamentalist Protestants are some of the nastiest poor-haters and weak-beaters you’ve ever seen. They’re actually editing the Bible to remove any reference to charity, and performing all kinds of casuistristic gymnastics to explain why Ayn Rand is the perfect expression of Christianity..
