Jin walk through the park after practice. He saw attractive girl sitting on the bench. At first he thought that she’s waiting for someone to sock that person because she looked so offended and in nerves. He wanted to come and talk with her but fear that he felt was too hard. When he was thinking about this, still looking at the girl, she catch his sight. She came closer to him and with the most sweet voice which he hear in his life, she asked if she can help him. He didn’t know what to think. Her cold face dissapear and in place of it showed ball of cutness. He couldn’t take his sight away from her. Then she laught because of his weird face expression. Jin slowly backed to his mind. He laught too and realize that maybe it will be nice to start closer relation with her.


“I’m sorry, my name is Jin. Are you waiting for someone?”

Girl: Nah. I were just sitting when I saw you observe me. I’m Y/n

“Yeah sorry. I just thought for a little bit that you are in nerves and….”

Girl: you mean that I look cold,right? Everyone tells me that.

“No,no,no—– Okay. Yes. But now I see how kind you’re. Maybe you want go drink coffee with me?”

She have cold looking face and her all black outfit didn’t help to not think that he can be kind of rude and presumptous. But Yoongi liked her style. He was looking at her for few seconds waiting when she’ll be alone to go and talk with her. He hope that maybe you won’t kill him when he would try to talk with you. For his surprise girls started to coming closer to him. They wanted to sit with him in the table becasue rest was occupied. When they started to talking he to liked her even more. She was cute, nice and the kindest girl that he met. When girls stand up and heading to doors, he quickly, softly took her arm and ask about phone number. When she gave Yoongi her charming smile and number, he felt like all his inspiration back.

“I know that you can think that I’m some kind of freak but how about exchanging our phone numbers? Btw- I’m Yoongi.”

Girl: “why not? My name is Y/n. Nice to meet you”

Group of girls. No great shakes. But one girl captured his attention. She had style, moves like she is walking on catwalk, all proudly and beamed with  class. He couldn’t take away his eyes from her, amazed with everything what she had (lol, it sounds so badly). When Hoseok do steps to go and talk to her, she turned to him and looked deeply in his eyes. He frozee and turn on his heel like nothing happened and come back to his previous spot. He couldn’t believe what he did. He saw attractive girl but he couldn’t believe that her glare and rude expression made him leave. ‘Why the fuck I’m like this?’. When he scold himself in his mind, he hear cute and soft voice behind him. ‘Excuse me? I think that few seconds ago you wanted to come to us,sorry my friends are too shy to ask you’. Then he frozee again. Is this the same girl? He turn to see her and ….. yes, it was her. He didn’t know what to say. After awkard minutes staring at each other  he finally spoke

“Sorry, I just mistake you with somebody”

Girl: “owh. Sure.

“Okay. Tbh I wanted talk to you but I freak out. I’m sorry that I’m saying this”

Girl: no, no. It’s okay. A lot of people are telling me that I look rude but when you meet me closer I’m really nice girl

“Do you want let me meet you closer?”

Girl: that’s why I send my friends to home. I hope for it.

“So from now on I can be your hope.”

This day he decided to spend some time alone in ice cream parlor because why not? Hhe catch his eye when she was walking in to place. Atmosphere of winter night which she emit just couldn’t be not noticed. She stand behind him, waiting for her turn to order ice creams. Namjoon was thinking how to speak to her. He was affraid that girl may take him for some kinf of the “player” and that he is always flirting with random girls . When he was deep in his minds he suddenly felt someone small hand on his shoulder. He turn back to see this girl with the most adorable smile that he saw. He forget about his first impression of her being ice hearted person. Monnie awkardly wave to her and saw his chance to ask you out or for phone number.

Girl: I’m sorry that I’m bothering you but I found this wallet on the floor and maybe it’s yours?

“Owh. No, it’s not“

Girl: Aish my bad. Sorry… *pause* Okay, tbh it’s mine wallet. I just wanted to talk with you.

“You too, huh? So maybe we’ll take a seat and meet eachother?”

Girl: Sounds like a nice plan. I’m Y/n.

Mochi would find this girl pretty and attractive but her face and her eyes that were telling to everyone to better don’t come closer or she’ll bite, slightly deter him. He doesn’t want to eavesdrop on her and her friend but they were speaking really loud. Girls speak about voluntary organization and a charity fundraiser which this two’ll be organizing for kennels. Jimin felt intrested in this girl. Outside she looks cold, mean and pugnaciously but inside she comes across as  really nice person and worth get to know her. Chim eavesdrop when and where will be this fundraising. When this day come he took Tae with him-because this boy love dogs. While Tae was all fascinated with this event, Jimin was looking for girl from shop. He saw her standing alone, asking people for money to her charity box. Jimin go to her, giving money and shyly starting a conversation.

“So how long are you volunteer?”

Girl: It’ll be three years.

“Do you want me to help you?”

Sometimes her face made him felt shudder. Cold looking but attractive and mystery. Still he was intersted in her. Waiting till she will come to meet him and for autograph, he was making scenarios how to talk to her and make her laugh.  But when he was trying, girl just looked at him, slightly blush and go away. He couldn’t forget about her even after fansing. When no one were watching, he quietly slip out unobserved outside. He saw her with 2 others girls from fansign. Taehyung heared how girls were talking about their experience from fansign and reconstruct it over again. Girl, which catch his eye, showed her real nature. She was too shy to make any move when Tae show to her attention. Her cute side make his heart stopped. When she smiled, her dimples showed and she softly blush thinking about that situantion.
Tae without hesitation came to her and started to talk.

“Hii. I think that you’re soo cute. You look like ice queen but in real you’re the cutest angel ever. Let’s go for a walk.”

girl: oh. yeah. Thank you? I can go for a walk with you.

When he sadly smile to one of his fans, one girl shouted “Ya all better go home and leave him. This boy can’t even breath”. All of girls looked at her. Her face looks killingly and intimidate. Fans bowed and go away before she’ll frezee them with her sight. Then her friends come to her and start to talkinf emotionally about what she did - “damn girl it was the best action ever! You can be a security guard. This is a positive thing in rude looking girl!” She smiled and started to laught. Kookie still being in shook just stared at her. When he manage to say something, he shyly said “thank you”. Girl smiled and with victory on her face, she go to the door. Jungkookie woke up from his shook and call out her.

“Heey. Wait. Maybe there is something that I can do for you as a thank-you for help?”

Girl: I would really loved to. How about dinner?

anonymous asked:

so I'm trans working at Omfax wondering if anyone knows their police overall for trans workers? I know it's a charity and voluntary but I want to know what to do if I come out and treated like trash.... I need this so I can give a reference for a paying job when I get it etc.... (The only reason I'm not out is that I have my legal name on my volunteer form. wasn't sure if putting my none legal name was allowed etc.)

Nothing good in life comes easy...

Anas bin Malik reported:
“The Paradise is surrounded by hardships and the Hell-Fire is surrounded by temptations”

حُفَّتِ الْجَنَّةُ بِالْمَكَارِهِ وَحُفَّتِ النَّارُ بِالشَّهَوَاتِ

.

Ref: Sahih Muslim 2822
In-book ref: Book 53, Hadith 1
Web (English) ref: Book 40, Hadith 6778

.

“The scholars said: This beautiful analogy is from the exquisite, eloquent and comprehensive speech which was bestowed on the prophet (ﷺ). It means that nothing will help you to reach al-Jannah except going through hardships, and nothing will lead you to the Hell-fire except whims and desires. Both are veiled as described, so whoever tears down the veil will reach what is hidden behind it. So the veil of al-Jannah is torn down by going through hardships, and the veil of the Hell-fire is torn down by giving in to whims and desires. And hardships include striving in ‘ibaadah (worship) and persevering upon that, and sabr in the face of hardships, and restraining one’s anger, forgiving and having long-suffering (hilm), giving voluntary charity, having ihsaan (excellent behavior) with those who mistreat you, having sabr against desires, and so on.

And regarding the desires which surround the Hell-fire, and then it is clear that they are the forbidden desires such as intoxicants (khamr), illicit sexual relations (zinaa), gazing at non-mahram women, gossiping, playing musical instruments and so on…”

[Sharh al-Nawawi ‘alaa Muslim #2823]

ISLAM 101: Getting ready for RAMADAN: PART 8 (Final Part)

The Festival of Fast Breaking (‛Eed-ul-Fitr)

‛Eed-ul-Fitr falls on the first day of the lunar month of Shawwaal, marking the end of the month-long Ramadaan fast. Just as fasting during the month of Ramadaan is an act of worship, celebrating ‛Eed-ul-Fitris also an act of worship whereby Muslims express their gratitude to Allah for enabling them to perform this act of worship and for completing His grace upon them. As the Qur’an states, “You should complete the number of days and proclaim Allah’s greatness for the guidance He has given you so that you will be thankful.” (Soorat Al-Baqarah, 2:185)

What Should Be Done On the ‛Eed Day?

1) Offering the ‛Eed Prayer: Islam stresses that the ‛Eedprayer should be performed. In fact, it was one of those practices which the Prophet May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him observed consistently and even encouraged not only men but also women and children to observe. Its time starts after the sun has risen to the length of a spear above the horizon (just over 1 metre) and lasts until it has crossed the meridian.
Description: The ‛Eed prayer consists of two units (rak‛aat; singular rak‛ah) in which the imaam recites the Qur’an loudly, after which he delivers a sermon (khutbah) in two parts. This prayer contains several takbeeraat (singular takbeerah, one’s saying Allaahu akbar) at the beginning of each unit more than the ordinary prayer: The imaam says Allaahu akbar and, before he starts reciting the Qur’an, repeats the same utterance six more times; also, after rising from the prostrate position to the standing position to perform the second unit, he repeats the same utterance five more times in addition to the takbeer he has recited while rising to the second unit. The worshippers follow the imaam in these movements, doing and saying exactly the same.

2) Paying Zakaat-ul-Fitr: Allah has enjoined zakaat-ul-fitr (literally, the purifying obligatory charity of the breaking of the fast) on anyone who possesses a day’s and night’s worth of food. It consists of one saa‛ of the most common staple food of the country, be it rice, wheat or dates, and must be given to the Muslim poor and needy so that there would be no person in need of food on the ‛Eedday .It is permissible, however, to pay the value of zakaat-ul-fitr in money instead if it appears that this will be more beneficial to the poor.
Time of Its Payment: Zakaat-ul-fitr is to be paid from the time the sun sets on the last day of Ramadaan up to the time of the ‛Eed prayer. It may, however, be paid a day or two before the ‛Eed day as well.

The amount of zakaat-ul-fitris one saa‛ of the usual foods tuffs of the country, be it rice, wheat or dates. One saa‛ is equivalent to approximately 3 kg.
A Muslim must pay it for himself and all the persons he is legally bound to support, such as his wife and children. It is recommended to pay it on behalf of an unborn child.

The Prophet May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him enjoined it as,“atonement for any obscene language used while observing the fast and for providing food for the needy. It would be accepted as zakaat from those who pay it before the ‛Eed prayer, but it would be considered as mere sadaqah (voluntary charity) for those who pay it after the ‛Eed prayer.” (Sunan Abu Daawood: 1609)

3) Muslims on this occasion : spread joy and merriment to all family members, young and old, men and women, providing all possible types of lawful amusements. They wear their best and most beautiful clothes and eat and drink, as doing so is an act of worship. Fasting on this day is strictly forbidden.

4) They recite the : takbeer on this special occasion on the night preceding the ‛Eed day and on the way to the ‛Eed prayer, and continue doing so until the imaam appears for the‛Eed prayers starts, expressing gratitude to Allah May He be glorified and exalted for enabling them to complete the fast of Ramadaan. The Qur’an states, “He wants you to complete the prescribed period and to glorify Him for having guided you, so that you may be thankful.” (Soorat Al-Baqarah, 2:185)

The manner of takbeer pronounced on this occasion is as follows: Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, laa ilaaha ill allaah, Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, walillaahil-hamd (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest; there is no god worthy of worship except Allah; Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest; all praise belongs to Allah).

One may also recite the following: Allaah uakbaru kabeeran, wal-hamdu lillaahi katheeran, wa subhaan-Allaahi bukratan waaseelaa (Allah is the Greatest;His is the abundant praise, and glory be to Him day and night).

Men generally pronounce the takbeer aloud, but without disturbing other people; women, however, pronounce it quietly..

bubblegumjar  asked:

Salaam, what percentage of our wages is owed to the poor? Regards

None. Charity is voluntary, except for the rich, who are required to pay a 2.5% zakat tax on their non-invested property and some other things. Therefore a person who has $1 million in the bank will have to pay $25,000 of that to the poor after a year.

If Bill Gates was Muslim, he would have to pay over $2 billion to the poor yearly (assuming his net worth stays at $81 billion).

The concept of zakat in Islam is the opposite of interest, which is why some call it “negative interest”. Interest allows the rich to become richer every year while the poor stay at the same level or become poorer. Zakat is basically the rich paying interest on their money to the poor. According to Wikipedia:

 In 2012, Islamic financial analysts estimated annual zakat spending exceeded $200 billion per year, which is estimated to be 15 times global humanitarian aid contributions.

“Up yours, the young! Up. Yours.”

anonymous asked:

if you're libertarian why do you hate the poor?

Big accusation there, anon. I don’t hate the poor, I just object to welfare. I believe in voluntary charity. It’s compassionate to reach into your own pockets to help the poor, but it’s not compassionate to reach into other peoples’ pockets to help the poor. That’s like theft..

So this popped up on my FB feed. Seems to me that the text on the right is much more of a voluntary thing (charity/donations), rather than the government taking what they want by force (socialism). Or is it just me?

anonymous asked:

sA, what are some things we can do that makes Allah love us more? Which acts does Allah swt love? I know charity is one and prayer but what else. What brings us closer to him and how can we keep on pleasing him.

Wa Alaykum as-Salaam,

Thank you for asking this question. It made me really reflect and crosscheck my relationship with Allah. Lets identify from the Qur'an and Sunnah of Prophet (saw) Qualities That Allah Loves and Qualities That Allah Hates/Dislikes

First thing first:

Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah , then follow me [so] Allah will love
(al-i Imran 31)

In order for us to live Islam in a way that Allah wants us is by following our Prophet (saw). Every quality we will talk about here has to be understood by how Prophet (saw) thought us. This is a very important point in Islam. Prophet (saw) is the living Qur'an. So when Allah describes the qualities He likes and dislikes is actually shown in the sunnah to us by our Prophet (saw)

Qualities that Allah Loves:

1) Patience:

“And Allah loves as-Sâbirun (the patient).” (Surah Imran 3:146)

2) Justice and Dealing with Equity:

“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is informed of what ye do.” (Surah Maeda 5:8)

3) Putting Trust in Allah:

“Certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).” (Surah Imran 3:159)

4) Kindness:

Ayesha (RA) narrated: The Messenger of Allah (SAW ) said: “Allah loves kindness in all matters.” (Bukhari)

5) Repentance:

“Truly, Allah loves those who turn unto him in repentance.” (Surah Baqarah 2:222)

6) Piety:

“Verily, then Allah loves those who are al-Muttaqun (the pious).” (Surah Imran 3:76)

7) Good-doing:


“Truly, Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the good-doers).” (Surah Baqarah 2:195)

8) Purification:

“And Allah loves those who make themselves clean and pure.” (Surah Tawbah 9:108)

9) Humility of the Rich:

Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqqas (RA) said: Allah’s Messenger (SAW ) said: “Allah loves the believer who is pious and rich, but does not show off.” (Muslim)

10) Belief and Work:

Al-Tabarâni narrated: Allah’s Messenger (SAW ) said: “Allah loves the slave who believes and acquires a career (or work).”

11) A sense of Honour:

Al-Tirmidhi narrated: Allah’s Messenger (SAW ) said: “Allah loves from amongst his slaves, the one who has a sense of zeal or honour.”

12) Magnanimity:

Al-Hakim narrated: The Messenger of Allah (SAW ) said: “ Allah is All-Generous and He loves generosity in sale, purchase and judgment.”

13) Virtuosity:

The Messenger of Allah (SAW)said: “Allah loves the believer who is poor but virtuous enough to refrain from begging though he has many children.”(Muslim and Ahmed)

14) Strength:

Allah’s Messenger (SAW ) said: “The strong believer is better and more loved by Allah than the weak one, but they are both good.” (Muslim)

15) Love for the Sake of Allah:

Al-Tabarâni, Ibn Ya’lâ, Ibn Hibban and Al-Hakim narrated: Allah’s Messenger
(SAW ) said: “If two individuals love each other for the sake of Allah, the stronger in love to his brother will be more loved by Allah.”

16) Continuous Performance of Righteous Deeds:

Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “The best loved deeds to Allah are the ones that are continuous even if they are not very many.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

17) Good Manners and Conduct:

Al-Tirmidhi narrated: Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said:“The best loved by me and the nearest to me on the seats on the Day of Resurrection are those who have the best manners and conduct amongst you, who are intimate, are on good terms with others and are humble, and the most hated by me and who will be on the furthest seats from me are those who are talkative and arrogant.”


Qualities that Allah Hates/Dislikes:

Israaf (extravagance)

“But waste not by excess: for Allah loveth not the wasters (Al-Musrifun (those who waste by extravagance)).” (Surah Al An'am 6:141)

Excessive spending and lavishness in everything is the core of evil and leads to greater evil. It makes one forget the hereafter and preparing for it. Such acts would be a cause of humiliation and disgrace on the Day of Judgment.

That is why Almighty Allah has prescribed zakah (obligatory alms) and sadaqah (voluntary charity) in order to bless the wealth and to curb extravagance in eating, drinking, clothing and in everything we do.

2. Istikbaar (Pride)

“verily He loveth not the arrogant (proud).” (Surah Al Nahl 16:23)

And the Prophet says,

“Pride is to completely disregard the truth and scorn (looking down upon) the people” (Muslim)

Sometimes a person might be deceived by his/ her knowledge, wealth and property, lineage and ancestry, or worship and be arrogant and boastful.

Al-Hasan Al-Basri advised that: “Do not become proud merely because you worship often, for consider what happened to Iblis after he spent a great deal of time worshipping” (Gems and jewels – wise sayings, interesting events & moral lessons from the Islamic history, compiled by Abdul-Malik Mujahid

Pride is among the greatest means of damage to a person’s wealth and circumstances. It distances one away from Allah’s love and “He who has in his heart the weight of a mustard seed of pride shall not enter paradise.” (Sahih Muslim, Book #001, Hadith #0166)

3. Mukhtal fakhoor (Arrogant boaster)

“for Allah loveth not any arrogant boaster.” (Surah Luqman 31:18)

Being arrogant and boastful are a deadly combination – beauty, knowledge, wealth and noble lineage should be taken as gifts from Almighty Allah and one should be humble and grateful for them rather than make them a means of pride and oppression.

Servants of Allah cannot be true to themselves as long as they are flattering themselves, walking in an arrogant manner and looking down on people who are inferior to them and not mix with them. The one who is arrogant in this world will be disgraced on the Day of Judgment.

Prophet Muhammad says, “The arrogant will be gathered on the Day of Judgment in the form of small ants. Humiliation will surround them from everywhere.” (At-Tirmidhi)

4. Udwaan (Transgression)

“for Allah loveth not those given to excess (Transgression).” (Surah Al Ma'idah 5:87)

Human characteristics have limitations, which if surpassed would be transgression and if one falls short of it, it would be a defect – for example, generosity has a limitation, when surpassed, it becomes extravagance, when courage is surpassed, it becomes rashness; when ibadah (worship) is surpassed, one falls into the risk of adopting bid’ah - some of the Companions almost fell into this trap.

Narrated by Anas bin Malik: “A group of three men came to the houses of the wives of the Prophet asking how the Prophet worshipped (Allah), and when they were informed about that, they considered their worship insufficient and said, “Where are we from the Prophet as his past and future sins have been forgiven.” Then one of them said, “I will offer the prayer throughout the night forever.” The other said, “I will fast throughout the year and will not break my fast.” The third said, “I will keep away from the women and will not marry forever.” Allah’s Apostle came to them and said, “Are you the same people who said so-and-so? By Allah, I am more submissive to Allah and more afraid of Him than you; yet I fast and break my fast, I do sleep and I also marry women. So he who does not follow my tradition in religion, is not from me (not one of my followers).”“ (Sahih Bukhari, Book #62, Hadith #1)

Therefore, moderation is the best way to deal with all matters – it is not to exaggerate and make it hard for ourselves by prohibiting the permissible things. And not to transgress the limits by excessively indulging in the permissible matters but rather we should only use what satisfies our need and not fall into extravagance.

5. Zulm (Evil, wrongdoing)

"but God loveth not those who do wrong (Zalimun (oppressors, polytheists and wrong doers)).” (Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:57)

This is a reprehensible trait whose existence spoils the Iman and darkens the heart. The wrongdoers are those who have chosen the tempting transient life instead of the hereafter. All acts of wrongdoing such as stealing, breach of trust, embezzlement, usurping the rights of others, and bribery, have serious consequences in the hereafter.

In a Hadith, Abu Dharr reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying that Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, said: “My servants, I have made oppression unlawful for Me and unlawful for you, so do not commit oppression against one another.” (Sahih Muslim, Book #032, Hadith #6246)

6. Khiyaanah (deceitfulness)

“for Allah loveth not the treacherous.” (Surah Al Anfal 8:58)

The treacherous one is two-faced and inconsistent in words and deeds. Acts of treachery lead to betrayal, disloyalty, perfidy, deception and hypocrisy which in turn soil the Iman.

7. Ifsaad (Mischief-making)

“And Allah loveth not those who do mischief.” (Surah Al Ma'idah 5:64)

This is a comprehensive term which includes great crimes, sins, oppression, carrying false tales, hypocrisy, tyranny and all kinds of mischief. All these acts are despicable and stain the Iman.

Hasten today to adopt the qualities that Almighty Allah loves and don’t rest until they become second nature to you; hasten today to abandon all the qualities Allah does not love and don’t relent until you hate them with all your heart. The Prophet said: “Faith wears out in the heart of any one of you just as clothes wear out, so ask Allah to renew the faith in your hearts.” (Al-Haakim in Al-Mustadrak and Al-Haythami in Majma Az-Zawaa'id)

Therefore the key is supplication, resorting to Allah and sincere desire to please Him followed by action, so we say,

“O Allah make Iman beloved to us and beautify it in our hearts.”

8. Publicity of Evil

“Allah does not like that evil should be uttered in public except by him who has been wronged. And Allah is Ever All-Hearer, All-Knower.” (4:148)

This is very commong in our Ummah now, people commit sins openly and also when they do certain sins people dont know about they come and announce it with pride these people call upon Allah’s wrath is a dangerous thing to do.

9. Obscene words and acts

Ahmed narrated: Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said:“Allah hates obscene words and acts.”

Again one of the most common disease our Ummah is suffering from. They use obscene language and think they are cool or just for fun.

10. Treachery

“Verily, Allah likes not any treacherous ingrate to Allah [those who disobey Allah but obey Satan].” (22:38)

11. Oppression

“Verily, He likes not the Thalimun (oppressors, polytheists, and wrongdoers).” (42:40)

12. Corruption

“And Allah likes not mischief.” (2:205)

13. Betrayal

“Verily, Allah does not like anyone who is a betrayer, a sinner.” (4:107)

14. Exultance for Worldly Desires

“Verily, Allah likes not those who exult (with riches, being ungrateful to Allah).” (28:76)

The remedy for all these diseases is the love of Allah Almighty, His Messenger (pbuh) and the Pleasures of the Hereafter. Allah’s love has many fruits and positive consequences, namely, Allah gives whoever loves contentment and satisfaction and this is one of the graces of Allah in this world. Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said:


“ If Allah loves someone He calls Gabriel (the angel) and says: I love so-and-so, so you love him. Gabriel loves him, and calls the other angels in Heaven to love that person. They love him, then his love will be made upon earth, and he becomes loved. And if Allah hates someone He calls Gabriel and says: I hate so-and-so and you hate him. Gabriel hates him and calls the angels in Heaven and says: Allah hates so-and-so, so you all hate him. They all hate him, and his hatred is made upon earth and he becomes hated.” (Muslim)

And Allah knows the best

mylifewithsocialanxiety-deactiv  asked:

Why are you against welfare? Would you rather that those who were struggling financially weren't able to get the help they needed? (And before you say "get help from a charity," let me remind you that it makes no sense at all to think that getting financial help from the government is wrong, but getting financial help from a charity is perfectly okay.) You know, I'm on welfare, and I'm damned proud of it. It's helped me to become financially independent from my parents.

I would like to begin by saying that no one should be proud of being on welfare, now, do not that that as people should be ashamed of being on welfare. There are times in the lives of many people that they need some help, and in the current system that help comes from government welfare. You say that being on welfare makes to financially independent of your parents, that is not true.  Welfare is provided by the state, which gets its money from taxes, your parents pay taxes, therefore you are still getting money from your parents, and from everyone else who pays taxes. So, if anything you are now more financially dependent than you ever were before.  

You said that before I say charity should be the place that people get help that “let me remind you that it makes no sense at all to think that getting financial help from the government is wrong, but getting financial help from a charity is perfectly okay.” So before I say that charity is the solution let me remind you that charity is something that people give money and time to voluntarily, when I give money to the Red Cross, for example, I give it because I want to.  When I give money to Social Security it is because if I don’t the IRS will send a SWAT team to my house, kick in my door, shoot my dog, and take me to jail.  The reason that charity is better than state welfare is because charity is voluntary.  

I have spent a lot of my free time working with private charities including Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, and the Episcopal Church. The difference between private charity and government welfare as far as the way in which it is administered is that private charity is actually concerned with making the people they help independent again, getting them off of the system.  Government welfare doesn’t care about getting the people out of the system, if anything it wants more people dependent on it. because if no one was on social security the people working for social security would not have jobs.  If no one needs private charity the people who volunteer their time and money will just use it for different things.  

The final reason that state welfare is bad is because it is unsustainable.  in the 2010 fiscal year the federal government collected between 2.1 and 2.2 trillion dollars from all of its sources of revenue. It then spent 2.128 trillion on mandatory spending, mandatory spending includes only Social Security $701 billion, Medicare $519 billion, Medicaid $273 billion, the interest on the national debt $202 billion, and 400 billion in other mandatory programs such as pensions and other unemployment programs.  This means that if the government did not spend money on anything accept these programs, that means no Army, no Navy, no Marine Corps, no Air Force, no Coast Guard, no congress, no president, no NASA, no EPA, no FBI, no DEA, no ATF, that the government MIGHT, and that is a big might, break even and not run a deficit. but in all likelihood would still run a deficit.
