Charity (zakaat) is one of the five pillars of Islam. Good Muslims are required to give 2.5% of their income to charity as good Mormons are required to give 10%. In Pakistan, A Hard Country by Anatol Lieven I was surprised to learn that pakistan has one of the highest rates of charitable giving, 5% of GDP, of any country in the world.
