Then you are following the most important teachings of Islam without even knowing it, you are trying to be a good person and that is exactly the essence of Islam.I gladly violate the laws of islam all the time yet I don't steal, kill, cheat. I help my neighbours, friends and charities and expect nothing in return in this life or the next.
islam is worthless.
-helping neighbors, there are numerous teachings and Hadith regarding this specific subject:
Mohammed (PBUH) Said "Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak good or be silent. Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should be generous to his neighbour. Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should be generous to his guest. His welcome is for a day and a night, and his hospitality
-Islam is mainly about charity and paying Zakkah is one of the 5 pillars ; you will find so many verses and Hadith about the importance of charity, in some cases charity is a must not an option.
I have a lot of friends who went to America and other western countries, most of them came back saying that western people have islamic Ethics more than Arabs, So by a way or another doing good is the right path and the right path is Islam.
