When something tragic ( earthquake, tsunami, floods) occurs in the world Christians always reach out and try to help the victims, but Muslims don't unless the victims are Muslims themselves. What is the reason behind the latter.

    All religions teach that you should love your neighbour, but Christianity is actually the only religion that says you should love your enemy. – aasheq May 17 '15 at 9:09

    @aasheq, That is not true, in Surah Tawbah, Ayah 6 quran.com/9/6, it states that if your enemy seeks protection, you must grant him protection, show him Islam, and then escort him to place where he can be secure. The most merciful generals would just let their enemies flee and hide away. Unless of course you have a different meaning of 'love'. Also, there are many other ayahs such as [quran.com/5/8] (quran.com/5/8) or [quran.com/42/39-42] quran.com/42/39-42) in which all have message of being just and fair to your enemy, and to forgive your enemy. – Dinar May 17 '15 at 10:26
  • And to the OP, the latter of what you said (i.e. Muslims only help Muslims) is not true. For where I live, I know of many charities and causes that not only aim to benefit Muslims but to all people. A few examples are: islamic-relief.org.uk, muslimaid.org and ifrc.org – Dinar May 17 '15 at 12:17

    You have an incorrect premise in your question. Both the country of Pakistan and the Islamic Relief organization were quite involved with relief efforts in Nepal this time. Similarly in Haiti a few years ago. I will downvote until you can produce statistics that show that Muslims don't help others. – Ansari May 17 '15 at 16:05
