The problem with corruption is not so much that people are corrupt; it’s that we tolerate corruption, embrace it even. It’s part of being in polite society. Corruption usually does not affect you directly; why not stay silent? But we don’t necessarily stop and think about the consequences this will have for future generations of Muslims. They may well grow cynical of how nonprofits and their leaders abuse Islam. There is also the real harm caused by victims of corruption.
This week I was invited (for the third time) to an episode of the Mad Mamluks, a well-known Muslim podcast. We discussed the recent Muslimmatters article on the abuse of Zakat by Muslim nonprofits, but also discussed corruption more generally. We even talked about my book on Islamic Estate Planning a little.
