It is forbidden in Islam. So as a Muslim I advice christians to stop gambling because of the negative effect that it can cause

No. God provides. Plus it can become an addiction!God allowed you to have that money for you to provide. If He hhad wanted for you to have more, He would have done so!'It is being wasteful!First of all , try tithing first(10%) of your gross salary, then pay your bills,Then put same aside to save, then spend what you have ! You will allways have enough!Try it-put yout faith in Him, not in gambling!AND dont give back to God, the monies you gamble with!thats wrong for them to even take that kind of monies!

I don't see anything wrong with it. I mean, we gamble every day without realizing it. You never know what could happen outside or what could happen when you walk out the door. For all you know you could slip on something inside your house and the worst case scenario is unveiled. It's part of life. Gambling is more or less taking chances and if there's something wrong with taking chances then there must be something wrong with living your life.

Gambling often times is a greedy form of recreation. But in this case, this is the opposite of greed! Good for them!

There is no specific prohibition against it. Many houses of worship host forms of gambling as fundraisers (money wheels, lottery drawings, etc.)

Let me explain this situation logically...since gambling is a bad thing do you honestly think that God will accept something bad?? It's like you steel from the bank and then you give it to the orphans...isn't that wrong?may Allah(God) guide you to the right path :) amen :)
