Muslim hospitals in the U.S.? Creeping Sharia hat tip trk
It would be hard to argue that if quality health care were provided in a manner that respects U.S. laws and health codes, and treats all patients equally without discriminating that this would be bad. It would certainly be better use of Saudi money than teaching jihad in U.S. schools.
The trouble is - if you read this initial blue print for Muslim hospitals in the U.S. - it sounds like hospital jihad, wreaking of the Islamic supremist ideology. Creating the Ummah here in the U.S., converting existing hospitals into Muslim dominated and run hospitals through pure discrimination. Through a ’stronger Muslim presence’, and more Muslims owning shares, the hospitals would be forced to hire more Muslim staff and make more Muslim accommodations. Presumably those Muslim doctors would then hire more Muslims, and by default, “in a matter of ten years we could end up taking over already existing hospitals insha’Allah.”
Mission Possible: A Muslim Hospital Can Be Established

By Naseem Sharieff
In the June 6, 2008 issue of the Muslim Link, an article was published titled “Muslim Doctors Abundant But Muslim Hospitals Non-Existent”. Being a Muslim physician with 25 years of experience, I have some ideas on how Muslim doctors can serve this ummah and make a Muslim hospital a reality.
THE FIRST STEP
The first step would be to find out how many committed Muslim physicians are in America. If you are only a physician, driven solely by the aim of generating income and establishing yourself professionally, it will not happen. However, if you are a physician committed to serving your Lord and the community at large, then this is the time for us to come together in thinking how to make our lives meaningful in the service of this deen with our professions.

Deen apart from every day life is not true deen. Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was the best example of it. He was a complete model and he proved it by establishing a living, working community in Medina.

WHO IS GOING TO DO IT?
Doctors could be classified as:
Physicians who are Committed to the Muslim Community
i. Senior Physicians: . They have many years of experience, are done raising families, and are close to retirement.
ii. Physicians in the Middle of their Careers Life They are in the middle of their careers, tied up by previous financial commitments (ie: office and equipment leases, etc).
iii. New Physicians Coming out: New comers from Medical Schools, in their first two years of practice.
Non Committed Muslim Physicians (self committed)
EVERYBODY’S STAKE ON THE MATTER
Those under group “A” would clearly be the ones interested in achieving such high goal for the Ummah in this country.
The Senior Physicians responsibility would be to make a group of Muslim Physicians and start a corporation or a group practice. This group would be core in initiating the establishment of a Muslim hospital since they have the knowledge, experience and have achieved settlement, as well as they no longer carry the heavier load of the responsibility of raising families.
The middle group could be the managed care referral physicians. They could benefit the communities while continuing their regular practices by receiving for example five patients for free who do not have insurances. They could report those patients for tax purposes. They could also refer patients to the community based medical practice (incorporated business). These physicians could gradually work towards transitioning into the corporation, and freeing themselves from the previously established commitments such as office and equipment leases.
The new physicians could join the Company with a complete package of salary, vacation time, CME, insurance … at market match value.
SALAH AND ZAKAT GO TOGETHER
Salah is the pillar of our ibada, worship. But our entire lives should be a form of ibada: in what and how we practice. Thus the same principle of ‘establishing’ can be applied to any ventures we may embark in our lives: our family life, our professions.
Since there is no salah without zakat (no establishing action without purifying such action with gratitude and humbleness); a fund could be created by the corporation with 0.5 percent of all physicians’ zakat money. This fund would be intended to support those community members financially incapable to pay for medical services. Part of such fund could also be used to give scholarships to top students so they can attend medical school in exchange upon graduation of committing to work as either full time employees or interns for the group practice/corporation or the hospital for a number of years. The benefits and ramifications of a fund of this type could be endless.
There is much, much more. Go here.
