Should practising Muslims in Germany pay a tax to their faith?

That’s a question one of the country’s leading liberal Muslims is asking. Seyran Ates is seeking to put her faith on the same level as several other religions in Germany.

Germans officially registered as Jews, Catholics and Protestants have for decades paid what’s called a Church or Worship Tax, the money is then given to the leadership of their faiths.

Now, one leading Christian Democrat politician says Muslims should be brought into this arrangement to free them from the influence of foreign states.

  6. I love America, which all religious organizations can arrange their entities as non-profit organizations and be exempt from a lot of taxes…

    Parishioners help to pay for the existence of religious entities which stand to be places of worship for others and an important escape from the world which is hard and tough…

  7. Peace be unto you…
    Of course, I heard that other religious organizations pay these types of taxes in Germany…

    Considering that Germany is a Christian country…
    A jizyah is fair…

    Islamic countries demand religious taxes called jizyah and there is no way around that Islamic principle and it is Shari'a…

    Without watching this video and from the title alone I made my decision and I am a convert Muslimah hijabi in America…

    May Allah ( SWTA ) Bless and Guide us all to the Straight Path and Keep us on the Straight Path
    Summa Amin Bedthni Allah
