Humanity vs Religion


Does humanity comes first or religion like should i give money for building and maintaining mosque or to a poor ill fellow who can’t afford medical services?


Wa alaykum salaam

According to the religious teachings, humanitarian and welfare services are part of religion and a person who is indifferent towards others problems is not a Muslim .
When a person is stuck between two good deeds ,priority is given to the act for which there is more need in the society.
Both the acts you have mentioned have a lot of importance.It is upon you to decide according to the need .
