Bismillah, We Twelver Shias commonly claim that the Takfiri/Salafi/Wahhabi propagandists are funded by the Saudis and their petro dollars. Do we have any proof of this? Thanks. JazakAllah Khair.
What can be done to combat poverty?
notme posted a topic in Science/Health/EconomicsIn the Bible Jesus is reported to have told one of his followers "we will always have the poor" but do we have to? I've read that during a time in islamic history, it actually became difficult to find a poor person to give charity. Among certain ethnic communities today there is virtually no poverty. Can this lifestyle of helping and uplifting each other be done on a global scale? If so, how do we overcome political, linguistic, and ideological boundaries, respecting differences but not allowing them to divide us? More than 700 million people live in extreme poverty, and must continually struggle to even meet basic needs. 70 percent of the world's extremely poor people live in southern Asia and sub-saharan Africa. These regions are not resource poor, they've just historically been mismanaged and abused under colonialism. There are agencies that help, or try to help anyway, but often they lack coordination with other agencies and knowledge of local conditions and economies. Quite often their help is only short term benefit. Sometimes it makes things much worse in the long run. 1. What can people and leadership in these subsistence poor areas do to help lift themselves out of dire poverty? 2. What can the average person in a middle class or higher family do to improve our world by improving the situation of the extremely poor in our own communities and abroad? 3. What can you do? What will you do?
