Dear Mr Singer,

We avoid pun at others.

The Qur'an is loaded with commands for helping the helpless.

Do not harm the advocates of justice. [3:21]

Do not bribe the officials or the judges to deprive others of their rightful belongings. [2:188]

Do not be an advocate for the treacherous. [4:105]

Do not blame others for your fault. [4:112]

Do not take stand in support of criminals. [28:17]

Be staunch in justice, even though your witness goes against yourself or your parents or your kindred. [4:135]

Uphold justice, be a witness to the truth. [5:8]

Let not the hatred of any people move you away from justice. Always deal justly. [5:8]

(What goes around comes around.) Whoever has done an atom’s weight of good or evil, will see it. [99:7-8]

Do not withhold from people things that are rightfully theirs. [7:85]

Those who harass, molest or rape women could face capital punishment. [33:60]

Everyone shall be justly compensated for one’s labor. [39:70, 53:39]

Spend on fellow humans all that is surplus. [2:219]

Do not inflict the recipients with reminders of your generosity. [2:262]

Do not give alms and charity for show off. [4:38]

Do not try to impress people with your piety. [53:32]

Giving charity brings lasting rewards and strengthens one’s own ‘self’. [2:265]

Help the needy without expecting any returns, not even a word of thanks. [76:9]

Give to others the decent things that you have honorably earned with hard work. [2:267]

The noble ones feel no hesitation in their hearts in helping the needy, giving them preference over themselves, even though poverty is their own lot. [59:9]

Whoever is saved from greediness of the heart, such are the ones who truly prosper. [59:9]

Keep your resources available for fellow humans. [3:134]

Give your relatives their Divinely ordained right, and give to those whose running businesses have stalled, those who have lost their jobs, the needy wayfarer, the homeless, and the one who reaches you in a state of destitution. Do not squander your wealth senselessly. [17:26]

Be easy on the debtor. Giving up the loan as charity is better for you. [2:280]

Give to the poor their Divine right whenever you earn income. [6:141]

Give charity while you are in good health and expect to live instead of waiting until ill health and death approaches you. [63:10]

Charities must go to, the poor, those who are not able to earn enough living to meet their basic needs, those whose running businesses have stalled or the ones who have lost their jobs, those who have become needy with their active lives coming to a stand-still, officials who have been appointed by the government to collect alms and charity, those who are hindered from joining the Divine System for financial reasons, to “free” men and women from bondage of any kind - physical slavery, unjust captivity, and oppression from any quarters, those who are pressed under the load of ransom or heavy debt from an enemy, defense of the Ideological State, in the cause of God, the wayfarer who becomes needy, those who travel to the believers in destitute condition, and the homeless son of the street. [9:60]

Giving charity in secret is better than announcing it. [2:271]
