International Muslim charity organizations in today's world

How important is the role of international Muslim charity organizations in today's world?

This is the main question of this TV episode presented by Dr. Tariq Ramadan

Muslims regard charitable giving as an important religious duty in their lives; many religious scholars place giving to charity alongside praying to God. This constitutes one of five Islam's pillars called zakah, an Arabic word for "purification". According to one estimate, citizens of Muslim countries give 10 percent of their income to charitable causes. However the Muslim charitable deeds lack a visible presence in the world.

After the Month of Ramadan: Fasting and Adversity

Ramadan has ended. Around the world, nearly one-and-a-half billion people fasted with discipline and devotion. In so doing, they breathed new life into the experience of the world’s religious and spiritual traditions: mastering hunger, bodily appetites and even their human impulses to release the noblest energy of their being.

Theirs is the aspiration to the divine, to generosity, to the compassion that begins with resistance to self and with giving to neighbours. It has been a month of discipline that teaches us the deepest meaning of dignity and liberty for humankind, among humankind.

Fasting is, first and foremost, an exercise for identifying and managing adversity in all its forms. With faith, in full conscience, fasting calls women and men to an extra degree of self-awareness. Instead of looking outside of ourselves and counting potential enemies, fasting summons us to turn our glance inward, and to take the measure of our greatest challenge: the self, the ego, in our own eyes and as others see us. The aim is to gain mastery over ourselves, to become aware of our illusions, to become the agents of our actions — and not the object of our own pretensions or someone else’s gaze. The philosophy of fasting calls upon us to know ourselves, to master ourselves, and to discipline ourselves the better to free ourselves. To fast is to identify our dependencies, and free ourselves from them. That is adversity number one.

We must master our egoism, and through this mastery, step outside ourselves and educate ourselves in giving. Fasting requires that we rediscover all that is alive around us, and reconcile ourselves with our environment. Fasting with our bodies enables us to see more clearly with our hearts: the Quran reminds us that hearts become blind, not eyes. A blind heart sees nothing but self and its illusions; it cannot contemplate nature, the living creatures around it, and those like it. There can be no faith, and no fast, without solidarity. We must step beyond ourselves, and become a corporal presence, a gift of the heart, and an endowment of being. Human nature sets taking care of self, and consumption above all; the faster’s spiritual aspiration is to become attentive to others and to give without cease. That is adversity number two.

Between the prison of ego and solidarity with others, we must seek—in dialogue with the Divine — a balance. The greatest challenge confronting humankind is that of being and remaining within the harmony of that median way of which the Quran speaks: to confirm ourselves as a spiritual community of the true Middle Path. Our task is to nourish spiritual longings that respect the laws of nature: fasting by day reminds us of each one’s right to break the fast by night. Emancipation from the self cannot be achieved if the individual’s dignity is not respected. It follows that poverty, injustice, oppression and torture, which by their very nature forbid the experience of a free and noble fast, are scandals upon our conscience that we must combat, and can never accept. The search for the Divine obliges us never to compromise basic human rights. That is adversity number three...

Tinkering with Religion in the Garage

Dr. Ramadan gave this talk at the RIS 2010 Annual conference in Canada

Modern societies have become fundamentalist in their secularism and have effectively banned religion from the public square.

Religion has been relegated to the status of a personal hobby, to be practiced behind closed doors. Does public morality suffer as a result?

Is religious morality inherently divisive and disruptive as many believe?
