I am a Muslim. Islam is my life. Without Allah, I am dead and nonexistent!

If someone admits to you, that they think about you when they masturbate, what is your reaction?
Do you like the unhealthy ones, or the healthy ones?
Monster or Rockstar?
And stuff.
Every year, Americans apparently donate hundreds of billions of dollars to charity, and yet, in almost any city in America, you can walk through the streets and find hundreds or thousands of poor and homeless people. This picture does not seem to look right to me; how can there be so many poor and homeless people throughout America, who do not have enough money to live on, when hundreds of billions of American dollars are donated every year to charity? When I walk through downtown Vancouver, Washington, I see countless starving men, women, and children, and I ask, "Where are those billions of charity dollars? Definitely not here. They are no where to be seen. Not when these Vietnam veteran American warriors are left to live on the streets, not when these single mothers with their children are unable to afford to feed their kids, and they can barely make enough money to keep a roof over the heads of their hungry children, and not when homeless people are found in the alleys and trash heaps, having died of starvation or street diseases." On top of that, there are videos on YouTube where people document the fact that on many streets, hundreds of people in a matter of hours will walk blindly right past homeless people, giving them nothing, not even as little as a glance. To me, the issue is clear: although hundreds of billions of American dollars are spent each year on charity, obviously not enough of those billions are actually spent on the homeless and poor Americans. Large portions of those billions, if I'm not mistaken, are donated to the poor and homeless in other countries. Of course, those are third world countries, such as India, Afghanistan, or African countries. But the homeless in America are living in third world living conditions. Furthermore, we HAVE third world countries that exist inside of America; many of the Native American reservations are so poor and destitute, they are literally third world countries. They are real, American third world countries, right here inside the United States. The fact that by donating to other countries, you are donating to third world countries, is not a good enough reason for the charitable Americans that DO exist, to give their charities to other countries instead of giving their charities to the poor and homeless Americans, or the Native Americans living on the reservations for that matter. I could be wrong, but I believe at least part of the solution to the problem of abject poverty in the United States, is to encourage more individuals to take the matter into their OWN hands, by doing what they can as individuals to raise money for the poor and homeless Americans and Native Americans, and see to it THEMSELVES that the charity money goes directly to the poor and homeless in our land, rather than always trusting these higher organizations to do it. Of course, if you donate money to an individual who claims to be trying to raise money for the poor and homeless, you cannot be absolutely certain that they will give the money you donated, to the poor and homeless. But even if you donate money to an organization, you cannot be absolutely sure that organization will give it to those who need it. But if you donate your charity to an individual who claims to be raising money, as an individual, for charity, at least you are potentially helping an individual personally see to it that more charity money goes to those that need it. Similarly, you can even just give your money directly to a poor or homeless person yourself,

So I, as an individual, am running a campaign on gofundme, to try and raise charity money that I can personally give to the poor and homeless. So please, check out these two links.

As-salam walaykam! Peace be upon you! My name is 'Abdullah Hamzah Shari'ati and I am a Muslim.

My mission in life includes to devote every action I make in every day of my life to serving Allah. To me, that would involve being completely dissolved in kindness and grace to others in Allah's Name, as salt is disolved in water! All praise be all to Allah, and also all thanks!


Also, I have a blog: www.myresearchofthequran.wordpress.com. If you want to know anything about Islam, please visit my blog and leave a comment! I am quranscientist. That's me on wordpress.

Note: My photo here is from about 4 years ago, before I stopped shaving my face. Sooo...NO! You don't know what I look like :)

a broad minded and daring man. I like your stuff it's varried and considered. You have questions about interesting things in your posts. and yes the mind was the original Internet.I have had far too many instances of knowing things that I should not.simple things like my wife needing me to call her right then and there, or who might be calling me at that moment. or life preserving things such as -there is a serious road blockage around this blind curve in the road slow down. And my life seems to get easier when people pray for me.
