THE ELECTIONS, VOTING AND MUSLIM PARTICIPATION

WHAT SAYS THE SHARIAH?

Numerous Muslims are writing to us querying the permissibility or impermissibility of participating in the upcoming elections. Is it permissible to take part in the elections? To vote or not to vote? This is everyone’s question. 

If Imaan is healthy and strong, the Mu’min will have no need for doubt and uncertainty, and to query this issue. The elements in the kuffaar voting system and the system itself are conspicuous and really are not in need of expert brains nor for much Shar’i knowledge. The glaring conflicts and contraventions which have to be committed by indulgence in the kuffaar system are too apparent and vividly clear and simple to understand.  Regarding such glaringly conspicuous and simple issues, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Seek a fatwa from your heart.” 

But the heart will issue the correct fatwa only if the Imaan is not contaminated, polluted and darkened with fisq, fujoor, bid’ah and even kufr which are dominantly prevailing maladies of the entire Ummah of this era. The deluges of doubtful food, haraam carrion, cellphone pornography, haraam earnings, etc., etc. have extinguished the inherent nooraani propensity and ability of understanding of Muslims. Thus they are unable to distinguish between Haqq and baatil, vice and virtue, haraam and halaal. To add to this misery, is the villainy of the scoundrel molvils and sheikhs who are promoting fisq, fujoor, bid’ah and even kufr in the name of Islam. 

(1) The very system of governance of non-Muslims is in flagrant and wild conflict with the Qur’aan and Sunnah.  Whether it is democracy or any other kuffaar-manufactured system of law, it is in conflict with the Qur’aan and Sunnah. Such a system of law is branded the law of Jaahiliyyah by Allah Ta’ala in the Qur’aan Shareef. 

(2) Voting for a system which is in total conflict with the Qur’aan and Sunnah is haraam. This is an obvious Shar’i position which no Muslim with any Imaani understanding can deny. Only ulama-e-soo and bootlicking so-called ‘muslim’ politicians have the kufr propensity of denying Qur’aanic truths. 

(3) All the candidates without a single exception are either kuffaar, fussaaq and fujjaar. They are crooks, bandits, scoundrels, looters of the public treasury, etc.  If the candidate happens to be a professed ‘muslim’, he will, in addition to his fisq and fujoor, be a zindeeq or a munnafiq or a murtad. At the very minimum he will be a faasiq/faajir. Voting for such personnel causes the Arsh of Allah Azza Wa Jal to shudder. 

(4) Besides the very concept and the system per se being haraam, the ramifications of participation in voting consist of haraam activities. Intermingling of sexes is the very first major sin a Muslim has to commit when voting. Photography, bootlicking, hooliganism, etc. are all inherent to kuffaar elections. 

(5) ‘Muslim’ candidates who manage to win elections as representatives, rather agents, of some non-Muslim political party are constrained to seal their lips on Islamic issues and to promote the values, ethos and every haraam act of the party. 

Just one current example of such kufr bootlicking is the campaigning for the elections by one faasiq, Ismail Vadi. He holds some post in the present government. Although he is known as a Muslim, perhaps he performs Salaat and fasts, he is first and foremost an advocate of the law of jaahiliyyah about which the Qur’aan states: 

“Those who do not govern according to that (Shariah) revealed by Allah, verily, they are the kaafiroon.” 

The Nusoos of the Shariah are numerous to condemn and excommunicate this character and all others of his ilk who masquerade as Muslims. This chap attended or visited the Lord is My Shepherd Church in Lenasia to campaign for the party he represents. He bootlicks the pastor and the politicians. His priority in life is the promotion of kufr law. In diametric conflict with the Qur’aan and Sunnah he calls on all, Muslims and non-Muslims, to indulge in gross Shar’i violations by participating in voting. He lacks understanding of kufr and Imaan. He is in terms of the Qur’aan Majeed: “Summum, Bukmum Umyun” – Spiritually dumb, blind and deaf. The thought of Maut, the Qabr and Qiyaamah is furthest from his mind and the minds of those who participate in the law of jaahiliyyah. 

It is haraam to participate in any aspect of non-Muslim governance. Voting is not permissible. Furthermore, there is no imperative need (Shar’i haajat/dhuroorat) for diverging from the Shar’i prohibition. Pork cannot be consumed, even one morsel, when a person is not facing death due to starvation. The same principle is applicable to voting. 

May Allah Ta’ala guide this bootlicking, humiliated community of Muslims.
