aslaam alykum,

im sorry, but how is a bunch of people dancing and singing gonna end poverty. this just seems to me another oppurtunity for kafir to do haram with an 'excuse'. ok they might make a few million pounds, but africa is not just in economic crisis it is in a social and political crisis, giving money is not going to make thesse problems go away, its just gonna make kaffir sleep easy. the only system that can get rid of poverty is islam, these kafir just keep on exploiting the poor african people, yeah tony bLiar might cancel third world debt, but he'll just find a new way to exploit the african population.

bunch of junk

we shouldnt support their method..if only we as an ummah were united, to show them the REAL way :'(

Allah SWT gave us zakah as a pillar and sadaqah as a means of giving money, and also gaining reward.
we dont need half naked singers *raising awareness*

Valid opinion, and you're right in that "if only we as an ummah were united" - we are not. Live8 is not just about the music which is just a part of raising the awareness, live8 is part of the Make Poverty History campaign. It's not all about "naked singers" (lol it would be illegal if they were naked!). It's uniting all types of people and groups in its cause including Islamic Relief, who infact were very active yesterday in distributing much material including posters, leaflets etc.

My soloution (sic) is to end poverty, the rest of your question is rather irrelevent and has nothing to do with the topic.

trying to raise awareness of something with baatil is good? or bad?

al-Tirmidhi (2212) narrated from ‘Imraan ibn Husayn that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Among this ummah, people will be transformed into monkeys and pigs, swallowed up in the earth, and pelted with stones.” A man among the Muslims said, “O Messenger of Allaah, when will that be?” He said, “When singing-girls and musical instruments become widespread and wine is drunk.” (Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 1802).

ok, but what is it exactly that they do? islam has its own system for dealing with this problem, it is called zakat, a tax which the caliph collects for the poor and needy, NOT by mascerading naked women and men singing about haram and acting in a haram way. Islam is the only system that can make poverty history.

akhee, I strongly suggest you study more before you make these points..

Did you know we can donate to kuffar in some circumstances? I am not reffering to this.

But I strongly urge everyone against making points without knowledge.

lol i think the problem here is that one may assume that it's all about the music etc. Sorry if i aint made it clear between the difference of make poverty history and the concert in Hyde park yesterday. Live8 was the ploy to get those who aren't as politicaly aware than others, therefore live8 is a branch of the make poverty history campaign. The website I posted earlier takes you to the make poverty histroy site, so to end further confrontations here is the site to sign up to http://www.makepovertyhistory.org/

well see how far this make poverty history campaign goes, and well see if anything changes in the next 10 years, do you even know why africa is so poor?

let me give u a lil history lesson. at the start africa was a wealthy country with an abundance of resources, gold, diamonds, tobacco e.t.c, the western goverments (yes the same goverments that claim they want to help now) went and raped africa taking black slaves who they sed were inferior species. they stlole resources from africa, crippling its economy. later when slavery was abolished racism still lurked, and the emergence of groups such as KKK.

now, in the 70's the IMF loaned money to the african nations, pormising low interest rates and long period of time to pay back. a decade later, the IMF shot up interst rates which then crippled the africans even more, and they wanted the money quickly.

now these governments claim they want to help the african people. let me ask you this would you give the nazis money because they promised they would help the jews?

Don't play the race card that easily friend. It has a habit of blowing up in your face. Look, slavery was abhorrent and inhuman, but the West were not the only ones to use it. The Arab states used it earlier (Bilal r.a. being a famous slave). So your logic of calling the West evil for advocating slavery in the past backfires.

now, in the 70's the IMF loaned money to the african nations, pormising low interest rates and long period of time to pay back. a decade later, the IMF shot up interst rates which then crippled the africans even more, and they wanted the money quickly.
And this affects the giving of charity by individuals, how exactly? By your logic, if one government oppresses another country, then citizens of the first country are forbidden to help the oppressed people. That's crazy-talk!

now these governments claim they want to help the african people. let me ask you this would you give the nazis money because they promised they would help the jews?

It would be nice and possibly even correct to act a little less rudely towards each other.

The supposed aim of '8' is to raise consciousness of the plight of the poor in Africa.

This in itself is a good thing, educating people especially about this sort of subject is very important.

If anyone seriously thinks a bunch of multi-millionaires singing and dancing to thousands of intoxicated people is going to do that then you are very optamistic.

We know the answers, cancel all the debt, tear up all the restrictive trade practices and stop chanelling aid through corupt systems.

The last time we had a great, 'we are going to cancell billions of dollars of third world debt' announcement, everyone was happy, we thought at last these ***** have finally started to do something propperly. The result 3 years later less than 1% of the announced debt has been cancelled.

I suggest we come back to this in 6 months and see how many ageing rock stars have had hit albums on the back of this.

Then in 1 year to see if there has actually been any difference for the African poor.

halal way- NOT making a show and dance about it, you should be modest and give as much as you can, you should give so that the right hand does not know what the left hand has given and vice versa.

halal intentions- give for allahs pleasure and mercy, not becaause of peer presure or coz its the cool thing to do.

Okay. But the Western people are notoriously tight (even cheaper than a bunch of Asians in Asda on a Saturday :p), so it's sort of necessary evil to give them incentive. I don't agree with making a big song and dance out of it either, and I don't think Muslims should make a big deal out of it, but this is how the West raise awareness. This is just an observation.

halal intentions- give for allahs pleasure and mercy, not becaause of peer presure or coz its the cool thing to do.

Of course. What I'm saying is, if (Western) people choose to give charity this way, then can we please let them without pouncing on them? Islam promotes peaceful coexistence, and say what you like about the West's downfalls, Muslims are for the most part allowed to live in peace in the West. I'm not forcing people to donate to this charity if they feel it's dodgy - but if people (not necessarily Muslims) chose to donate, let them. Seriously, the typical Joe West is too miserly otherwise.

I tend to disagrea aamirsaab, how will this end poverty, or how will this even create awareness? People are already aware but simply ignore. Giving them a free concert might draw lot's of people but they just take the "awareness" part as the price then. To think of it is as a tool to give a sign to the goverments is also quite idealistic. I really doubt any western politician to take a whole lot of people showing up at a free concert as a cerious sign there's something wrong!

Just because some of you people might be against the "concert" which includes dancing/singing it wouldn't hurt to sign up for it. Nobody is forcing anyone to go to the concert. Just by sighning up is a big difference.

You have a good point steve. However, you must realise that it is already difficult for many westerners to get off their lazy butt's and give charity. This concert gets them off their butts. so it is a start. It won't end poverty over night - but what can?

But at least it keeps the people aware and at least something is being done. This is why I support it - at least they are trying. The concert is used in conjunction with the poverty ending scheme. I do understand your points steve, but atleast try and be supportive for this event.

I really doubt any western politician to take a whole lot of people showing up at a free concert as a cerious sign there's something wrong!
The concert was not 'free' strictly speaking. People had to pay for the tickets, and the proceeds went to charity. The performers were not paid, so it's free in that sense.

And Western Politicians take nothing seriously. When so many people marched through London against the war in Iraq, it had absolutely no effect whatsoever. At least giving charity is something the politicians can have no sway over - if people want to give it, they can.
