Here is another point where Truth stands Clear from error. In Islam, between 2 to 5 % of your income goes directly to the poor, which can include a relative. It has been calculated that 3% of the wheat in the world would feed all the starving people. This system of the Believer to hand the 3% directly to the poor is the solution. Also another benefit from giving the money directly to the poor as prescribed in Islam, you can connect with the people in need. You can enjoy and share in their happiness when you help them.
In Christianity, 10% of your entire Income, goes to the so-called 'non-profit' organization called the Church. This is named "Tithing" and the Church claims that the Bible backs up this 10% donation, even though Jesus taught also to give your money to the poor.
"Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven" (Matthew 19:21)
Paul continually changed the words of Jesus, instead of giving money to the poor as Jesus taught, Paul wrote in the Gospel; "In the same way the Lord has given orders that those who preach the Gospel should be supported by those who accept it." ( I Corinthians 9:13-14)
This is a false claim by Paul, no where in the Bible does Jesus or God command to give money to those who preach the Gospel, though unfortunately the church obeys Paul more than Jesus or God.
The difference between the Church and Islamic charity is that large amounts of money are left with individuals in Christianity, therefore opening the opportunity for corruption.
As we see recently, the Christian Rev. Henry Lyons, President of the National Christian Baptist Convention, USA, was convicted of racketeering and grand theft on charges of swindling millions of dollars from Christian companies seeking to do business with his followers.
This is of course a extreme case but what is common among Christian Churches while absent among Islamic Mosques is that the Ministers in Christianity take a salary for themselves which averages over $30,000 a year.While in Islam, the Ministers consider preaching the words of Allah, a reward in itself.
