Other than Islamic Inheritance, I have written extensively about Islamic Charitable Giving. However, I have previously written about problems in the Muslim nonprofit sector, with issues like unregistered foreign agents and zakat abuse. People often support Muslim organizations because a leader appears to be a “good brother” or a “good sister.” Is this good enough? No, not really. There are great nonprofits, don’t get me wrong. There are also bad ones. How can we tell the difference?
I created a new newsletter, the “Working Towards Ehsan Newsletter.” You can read my first article, which is about a political engagement organization known as “Emgage.” To create this review, I reviewed public records and interviewed insiders and people who interacted with the organization. The idea is similar to an analysis you might look at before you buy a stock. What is leadership like? What are the financials? Is the board any good? Is there corruption going on?
Please read my first issue. You can also subscribe if you want to engage with Muslim nonprofits with ehsan. Please feel free to share it with all your friends who sometimes donate to charities. I hope to review good and bad charities.
