This is a very interesting and detailed survey of American Muslim voters. It was put our by CAIR. Click on the link below to read the survey. Many thanks to CAIR for their support and tireless efforts on behalf of the American Muslim community.

Exerpt: As American Muslim participation in the political process has experienced steady growth, so has the tracking of American Muslim voters. During the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections, American Muslim groups mobilized to deliver presidential endorsements that received national attention. In 2006, CAIR issued its first-ever random sample poll of likely Muslim voters. Months ahead of the increasingly heated 2008 presidential election campaign, CAIR commissioned a poll to track the views of American Muslim voters. CAIR also commissioned a national exit poll survey of Muslim voters following the 2008 presidential election.
This report presents a detailed picture of American Muslim voter demographics and explores their views on a multitude of communal concerns and public policy issues several weeks before the 2012 presidential election. The survey results are drawn from a random sample telephone survey of 500 American Muslim registered voters.

(Of course its not enough, we all need to do more!)

First, if you can, give something to help with relief efforts in Haiti – and if you’re donating to a specific charity, consider making an unrestricted donation. We at www.MuslimClothing.com have decided to channel our support thru IslamicRelief-USA. We know some of their staff personally and feel that they are an extremely reliable organization.

The following is an excerpt from an article by Gregg Carlstrom on January 18, 2010 8:46 AM

Here is a partial list of donations from Muslim countries:

Bahrain: The government has donated $1 million to relief efforts.

Jordan: A Jordanian air force plane carrying a military field hospital and 6 tons of food and supplies left Amman on January 14. A second plane carrying Jordanian medics left the following day.

Iran: Iran’s Red Crescent society sent 30 tons of humanitarian aid, including food, tents and medicine, on January 16.

Kuwait: Kuwait donated $1 million to relief efforts; the Red Crescent is preparing 100 tons of food, medical supplies, tents and blankets to fly to Haiti.

Lebanon: Lebanon is loading a plane with 25 tons of tents and 3 tons of medical supplies; it leaves tomorrow.

Morocco: Two planes carrying 24 tons of aid left the city of Kenitra on January 16. The Moroccan government has pledged $1 million in aid to Haiti.

Qatar: A Qatari C-17 aircraft loaded with 50 tons of aid left for Port-au-Prince on January 14. The Qatari government also sent a rescue team to set up a field hospital; the Red Crescent will sent another $100,000.

Turkey: Three cargo planes — carrying search-and-rescue teams, a mobile hospital and aid materials — left for Haiti on January 16. Another two planes left yesterday. Turkey has also donated $1 million in cash.

United Arab Emirates: The UAE sent two planes loaded with tents, and a team from the UAE’s Red Crescent will arrive in the Dominican Republic tomorrow to buy $500,000 worth of supplies and truck them to Haiti. Another 50 tons of emergency supplies will be air-lifted from Abu Dhabi tomorrow.

And these are just the countries in our area of interest — I didn’t include majority-Muslim countries like Indonesia and Malaysia, which have also made contributions. Oh, and the Islamic Society of North America set up a fund for Haiti, too.

(One notable omission from the list: Saudi Arabia hasn’t announced a donation yet, which is really inexcusable for a country with that kind of oil reserves.)

IslamicRelief - Haiti Earthquake Appeal

As-salaamu alaykum,
We would like to do our part to encourage everyone to donate as generously as they can to the people of Haiti. Sayyidina Ali (AS) said the people of the earth are either your brothers & sisters in the deen or your fellow human beings. With this in mind we should hasten to assist the people of Haiti. The reward will be from Allah.

Let us as Muslims put our money where our mouth is and demonstrate that we have learned from the greatest teachings ever revealed to mankind. Let those who have, help those who have-not. Do for others that which you would like done to yourself.
