    Just think of a "Charity" if it was only restricted to "White" people or only "blue eyed". Muslim only also fits here. I would think that a Supreme Being would expect charity for all races and creeds. "Do unto others....."

    How would YOU like it if Non-Muslims refused to help you because you are Muslims. This works both ways...

    No, the Quran teaches you are not, as a Muslim suppose to help any non Muslim, in fact you are not even suppose to be friends with them, (unless it is to your benefit)

    Qur'an (5:51) - "O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people."
    Qur'an (5:80) - "You will see many of them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is that which their souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased with them and in chastisement shall they abide." Those Muslims who befriend unbelievers will abide in hell.
    Qur'an (3:28) - "Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them..." This last part means that the Muslim is allowed to feign friendship if it is of benefit. Renowned scholar Ibn Kathir states that "believers are allowed to show friendship outwardly, but never inwardly."
