Why do wise and devout Muslims choose to live in the West?

Surely their knowledge and expertise is urgently required in the Middle-Eastern and Arabic Peninsular countries where clearly people have strayed from the true message of Islam, and accepted corrupt, totalitarian regimes. Why do they choose to live among people who worship materialism and freedom, while they abandon and watch their brothers and sisters suffer at the hands of brutal dictators?

Because they too are more materialistic..... In the UK, the amount of money a Doctor can earn is often double or even triple what they could earn in the Middle-East. And what's wrong with wanting better things for yourself and your family? Nothing.

taking over the world by subterfuge is probably a lot more successful than open warfare. as muslims move from coutry to country and produce offspring while teaching islam, so the religion of that country slowly changes to islam. a devout muslim in the west, is just as effective as a devout muslim in the middle east

Inherently most of us want to just live life safely and prosperously instead of getting involved in such dangerous predicaments for the rest of our lives. In many Middle Eastern nations, attempting to denounce terrorism and speak the true interpretation of Islam can not only incite negative views from society in... More

In England, welfare benefits keeps them going - no work and rush off to the mosque 5 times a day. These people forgot - Allah would question them about 'how they earned their living?' welfare benefits isn't the answer!!! In East they would have to work to feed them and their children!!!

You have answered the question yourself by mentioning the reason -- "totalitarian regimes" and "brutal dictators." Such despotic rulers, and politicians in line, will never let those wise and sincere citizens become effective. In that case, they will loose their gold-egg-laying chickens... More
