“…He shares not His legislation with anyone.” – Kahf : 26
Oh Muslims, voting season has arrived! Over the coming weeks will see MP’s and different political party members approach us from every angle and try to convince us that they best represent our needs. They will encourage us to participate in democracy and to vote for them in the coming elections. It is incumbent on you oh Muslims, to reject these people and their system! This system of democracy is Kufr, participating in it is to indulge in Shirk and this is the worst crime committed against Allah!
Democracy is a deen of it’s own!
Without doubt, democracy is kufr and to participate in it by voting is shirk. Many of you will question how this can be, so it is imperative for us to learn about the idea behind democracy and how it works, understand its foundation and then look to the Islamic ruling regarding it.
The process of democracy is based around the idea that man decides what is permissible or impermissible in society. The average individual decides on which MP or political party best represents his or her needs and then votes for that candidate. The winning MP’s then head to parliament to decide on what should be made halal and haram in society in a process called legislation.
Allah tells us in Surah Kahf “…He shares not His legislation with anyone.” So deciding what is halal and haram or permissible and impermissible is only for Allah. How dare we think that man can challenge Allah the Almighty in legislation and shame on the Muslim who allows the Kufaar to decide what is halal and haram for him!
Islam as ruling system.
Islam is much more than a religion of spirituality. It is a much more comprehensive way of life. It is complete and not in need of change or addition. Allah says in the Quran, “This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion”. – Al Maeda : 3. Therefore, we are not in need of men to decide what should be deemed right or wrong. We have the Quran and Sunnah to refer back to for all decisions, major and minor.
Allah, glorified be he also says “Legislation is not but for Allah . He has commanded that you worship not except Him. That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.” – Yusuf: 40.
It is a consensus amongst the scholars of past and the truthful scholars of today that man-made laws are kufr.
Ibn Taymiyah said: “Seeking judgment is an act of worship. Whoever associates with Allah with his arbitration is a mushriq.”
So what then of the one who not only seeks judgment from kufaar, but also chooses a kafir to represent him in deciding what should be made halal or haram! Clearly this person is indulging in acts of kufr!
Will you associate with Allah?
After all the evidences have been made clear, there is no excuse for any Muslim who reads this leaflet to ignore its contents and go to vote at the poling station. Committing shirk with Allah is no small matter! The consequences of your decision would lead to an eternity in hellfire!
No doubt, the Shaytan is whispering in your ear and telling you that it is ok, that you believe in Allah and that will be enough for you on the Day of Judgment, but if it were enough to just believe in the existence of Allah without to consider your actions, Shaytan himself would be spared! He has seen paradise and believes in Allah, but his actions and arrogance have led him astray. Don’t let your actions lead you astray.
Did the Imams tell you to vote?
Allah says, “They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah…” Taubah : 31. How did they take them as lords? By obeying them when they made halal what Allah had ordained as haram and making haram what Allah had ordained as halal. Don’t be worshippers of these so-called Imams and Sheikhs who have no Islamic justification for what they do. They follow nothing but their own desires. So beware of them and depend on Allah alon
