you were part of a car accident and fortunately you are not hurt but then you saw 2 people that was hurt. 1 is a christian with few bruises in the head and another is a muslim man that has a blood all over his head and could barely move. who would you help first?

wow.... helping others is my qualities in life... about your topic, since the Muslim man got the most part of the car accident, and I may not know what his condition would be and where the pain would be, he might have internal bleeding and fractures inside, this would be a very risky situation to move this person, this might cause his life. I would rather not take that risk unless i could assess his condition by talking with him. If he did not reply or move, I would maybe get the guy with few bruises first and help me figure out how to help the Muslim guy..

Yes i agree with you that you must assess first the condition of the two, for if you try to help the person with so much fracture and you know you cant get the person out of that situation better call the authorities rather than injure him more in a serious manner.Save whomever you think best will survive than save someone who you think will not survive then lose both of them, of course time is of the essence.Always remember to have a clear presence of mind as to which decision is best, for a persons life is at stake here.

Frankly, it would never occur to me to find out what the religion of those that were injured before I offered them help. I am not Muslim and I would hope that Muslims share that same philosophy. We have much more in common as human beings than we have differences.
