Who Puts Religious Duty Above Helping Save Someone’s Life?

This sweetheart died because a Muslim had to "pray."

This sweetheart died because a Muslim had to “pray.”

The answer in one word is: Muslims. No, not all of them, but there is a mentality among many Muslims who believe that duty to Allah surpasses any such duty toward fellow human beings. This is made obvious by all of the suicide bombings and acts of terror.

But in some cases, there is a type of jihadist mentality that does not cause a Muslim to strap on a bomb and wade into a crowd of innocent people, or take up arms against those they believe stand against Allah. There are other ways that Muslims can effect the death of someone by doing nothing directly against them to cause their death.

Such is the case when an elderly patient “was left on the floor at a care home for up to ten minutes because a nurse was praying.” This particular nurse – Abdul Bhutto – who happened to be in charge and though noting that help was needed for Alzheimer’s sufferer Dorothy Griffiths, 87, said help would have to wait. Griffiths died.

At the inquest, one of the caregivers stated, “It took between five and ten minutes because he was praying upstairs in the office on his prayer mat. A staff member told me we had to wait for him to finish.”

Bhutto was not at the inquest and had to be subpoenaed.

Now, let me ask this question to all thinking people. Who puts their prayers ahead of helping human beings? Who says that an injured person in their care must wait while someone finishes their prayers? Who believes that any god would actually want this to be part of a follower’s life?

Here is one Muslim who believes it. One caregiver broke down at the inquest and stated she would have called an ambulance immediately, but she had only learned recently that a caregiver can override the orders of the nurse in charge. Of course, Bhutto denied that he was actually in charge that night, yet it can be argued that aside from taking her pulse and checking the elderly woman’s limbs, he did nothing to help her in spite of a large gash on her hip due to falling out of bed.

Instead, the only thing he felt that was important enough to do was to pray and I doubt seriously that he prayed for Griffiths’ good health.

Would Jesus have done that? There are many instances recorded for us in the Bible where Jesus was in the midst of prayer and when beckoned, He stopped praying and went to help.

Of course, there are times that we should enter into our prayer closet to be alone with God. We should leave the distractions and find a place that is not distracting. But even here, if something arises that requires our help, then shouldn’t we be willing to leave that place of prayer and attend to the needs of others? Jesus did it time and time again.

In Matthew 14, Jesus has just fed 5,000. He then, with His disciples, heads over across the lake to be alone. The people find Him and beg Him to heal their sick and many were healed.

There were many occasions when Jesus healed people and there were so many needy people because of their illnesses and infirmities. Yet, He did not turn people away. He didn’t stop in the middle of it and say, “Look people, I’ve got to go pray! You’ll still be infirm when I get back. Just hold your shirts on, all right?” He met their needs.

The only time that I recall from Scripture when He did not rush to get to someone was after the death of Lazarus. Yet, when He did arrive, He raised Lazarus from the dead. Why did He take four days to arrive to where Lazarus had been buried? Because He knew the purpose in Lazarus’ death was to bring glory to God.

Any religion that allows duty to come before helping others is a pretty poor excuse for a religion. What kind of god is it that heads up that particular religion?

Islam touts itself as a religion of peace. Yet, so many things done in Allah’s name are not done in the name of peace. People can say the same of Christianity too, but there is one difference that is huge.

Take the time to compare Jesus with Muhammad. After comparing them, ask who is the true example of love? Don’t look at followers, just look at each founder. I think it’s clear that when we look solely at Jesus and Muhammad, it’s not at all difficult to tell who is the real deal and who actually promotes peace and true love.

Those who follow Jesus and don’t do what He did are not His followers. The same applies to Muslims. Give it some thought.
