Why Itís a Bad Idea for Western Financial Firms to Get Involved in Zakat
Shariah Finance Watch ^ | 18 December 17 | Christopher Holton

The issue of zakat is one that is central to the concerns about Shariah-compliant finance, but concerns about zakat should extend far beyond Shariah finance alone. Zakat is a real threat because it is doctrinal in Islam and no figure, organization or body in Islam has the authority to change it. But why is it a threat? Because it is a main funding source for jihad.

We have detailed this extensively on SFW for years, but periodically we feel it necessary to reinforce and update our educational outreach on zakat. What prompted this latest report was an article we came across on a British law firm’s web site of a roundtable discussion about zakat as it related to personal injury settlements from legal action in the UK.

There can be no moderation in defense of liberty.

Judge Jeanine is a fierce defender AGAINST the “social justice” warriors, and the Deep State cabal that provides them cover.

“Social justice” is the diametric OPPOSITE of “liberty for all”.

Islam is not a religion. It is a political philosophy detailing political rules for society and how it’s organized, using some religious precepts as “cause” for them. More than half of the Quran is not religious at all or even pretending to speak as revelations given to Mohammed.
