Title: Would you save a single muslim person instead of 100 non muslim persons?


My friend asked me a question the other night and it kept me thinking, the question was: Would you save a single muslim person instead of 100 non muslim person.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Your question is unclear. Nevertheless, Islam teaches us to be kind and helpful to every human being, irrespective of him being a Muslim or non-Muslim. To assist non-Muslims is also an act of virtue.
