Democracy in the light of Islam: 

Democracy is a man-made system, meaning rule by the people for the people. Thus it is contrary to Islam, because rule is for Allah, the Most High, the Almighty, and it is not permissible to give legislative rights to any human being, irrespective of who he is.

Undoubtedly the democratic system is one of the modern forms of shirk, in terms of obedience and following, or legislation, as it denies the sovereignty of the Creator and His absolute right to issue laws, and ascribes that right to human beings. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged) — you and your fathers — for which Allaah has sent down no authority. The command (or the judgement) is for none but Allah. He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism); that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not” [Yusuf 12:40]

“The decision is only for Allaah” [al-An’aam 6:57]

The one who understands the true nature of the democratic system and the ruling thereon, then he nominates himself or someone else (for election) is approving of this system, and is working with it, is in grave danger, because the democratic system is contrary to Islam and approving of it and participating in it are actions that imply apostasy and being beyond the pale of Islam.

But as for the one who nominates himself or nominates others in this system in order to join the parliament and enjoin good and forbid evil, and establish proof against them, and reduce its evil and corruption as much as he can, so that people of corruption and disbelievers in Allah will not have free rein to spread mischief in the land and spoil people’s worldly interests and religious commitment, this is a matter that is subject to ijtihaad, according to the interests that it is hoped will be served by that.

Some scholars are even of the view that getting involved in these elections is obligatory.
  • Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked about the ruling on elections, and he replied: I think that elections are obligatory; we should appoint the one who we think is good, because if the good people abstain, who will take their place? Evil people will take their place, or neutral people in whom there is neither good nor evil, but they follow everyone who makes noise. So we have no choice but to choose those who we think are fit.

If someone were to say: We chose someone but most of the parliament are not like that,
  • We say: It does not matter. If Allah blesses this one person and enables him to speak the truth in this parliament, he will undoubtedly have an effect. But what we need is to be sincere towards Allah and the problem is that we rely too much on physical means and we do not listen to what Allah says. So nominate the one who you think is good, and put your trust in Allah.

It is not permissible for a Muslim to nominate himself in the hope that he can become part of a system which rules according to something other than that which Allah has revealed and operates according to something other than the shari’ah of Islam. It is not permissible for a Muslim to vote for him or for anyone else who will work in that government, unless the one who nominates himself or those who vote for him hope that by getting involved in that they will be able to change the system to one that operates according to the shari’ah of Islam, and they are using this as a means to overcome the system of government, provided that the one who nominates himself will not accept any position after being elected except one that does not go against Islamic shari’ah.

The Muslims in a country that is not governed according to Islamic sharee’ah should do their utmost and strive as much as they can to bring about rule according to Islamic shari’ah, and they should unite in helping the party which is known will rule in accordance with Islamic shari’ah. As for supporting one who calls for non-implementation of Islamic sharee’ah, that is not permissible, rather it may lead a person to kufr, because Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And so judge (you O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) among them by what Allaah has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) far away from some of that which Allah has sent down to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allaah’s Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly, most of men are Faasiqoon (rebellious and disobedient to Allaah)."

Do they then seek the judgement of (the days of) Ignorance? And who is better in judgement than Allah for a people who have firm Faith” [al-Maa'idah 5:49-50].

Hence when Allah stated that those who do not rule in accordance with Islamic shari’ah are guilty of kufr, He warned against helping them or taking them as allies or close friends, and He commanded the believers to fear Him if they were truly believers. He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“O you who believe! Take not as Awliyaa’ (protectors and helpers) those who take your religion as a mockery and fun from among those who received the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before you, and nor from among the disbelievers; and fear Allaah if you indeed are true believers” [al-Maa’idah 5:57]

And Allah is the Source of strength. May Allah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

Democracy in Baba Iqbal's R.A words:

(Iblees is sitting with his five advisors and starts a meeting with self-praising statements and explains what he has done so far to take the world at this stage. First advisor affirms his strategies and explains the state of people around the world. Second advisor reminds them about a threat. But first advisor corrects him and refutes his fear. Third advisor reminds them about another “serious” threat. Forth advisor provides the solution to that threat. Fifth advisor explains that “serious” threat again in more detail to let Iblees understand the seriousness of the matter. Iblees who is listening to all advisors refutes all of the fears that they have but discloses his own fear and considers it a “Real” threat to his satanic system. He explains why he is afraid of that threat and then he finally tells them what to do.)


 An old game of needs this mean world’s tact, To heavenly host hopes a cold blood act.
 That Great Maker bent to wreck earth soon, Who gave it a name of ‘KAF’ and ‘NOON’.
 To Europe I gave the kingship’s dream, I broke the spell of church and mosque’s team.
 I taught to the poor a lesson of fate, To the wealthy I gave the wealth’s craze great.
 Who can put out that fire’s big blaze, Of riots whome Satan had set ablaze.
 To plants we watered, caused to be trees, Who can bring that old tree to knees.

The Satan’s order is firm every where, The masses too like the servitude snare.
 The bows were writ for the poor in fate, A pray without stay their nature’s trait.
 Either in his heart a wish does not lie, If wakes up ever, would be raw and die.
 Isn’t this a marvel of constant push’ hence, That Mullah is tied with kingship fence.
 A best booze it was to Eastern nature then, No lesser vice singing to ‘eloquence’ ken.
 The Haj and Ka’aba Rounds yet a rite though, The nude sword of Moniin is blunt I know.
 On whose despair he formed a queer view, "On Muslim war is banned in this age new"


Is this roar in goodness that masses are kings? You know not new mischiefs of underlings.


A good point well, my seeing eye hails, No danger too there from a kingship’s veil.
 We gave to kingship the masses rule’s dress, Self conscious now is man with self’s ingress.
 The kingship science has a different sense, It needs not a garb of a monarch hence.
 May be Nation’s Council or Kaiser’s court, A king’s eye craves a foreign land or port.
 Didn’t you see western democratic track, Whose face is shining but inner is black.


What is the harm if lives the royal soul, What is the answer to that Jew’s wicked role.
 That Moses sans vision! that Christ sans cross, He’s not prophet, but, keeps Book for a gloss*.
 How to show that heathen’s shameless eyes, To East, West nations a doomsday lies.
 No worst cancer looks than his nature’s bent, That the slaves have toppled the. master’s tent.
 *Gloss a narration on foot notes, (Fig) here it means a deceptive appearance (over a life of secret wrong doings, a false or misleading inter relation).


Its counter action see in Rome’s big halls, We have shown his Sons, dream of Caesar’s call.
 Who is now wrapped with waves of Roman Sea, Like lute they weep oft, oft they grow like pine’s tree.

 I can’t admire his prudence and care, Who laid bare the Europe’s statecraft snare.


Due to thy burning this world gets balance, When you wished laid bare each hidden face hence.
 Thy heat in his clay the world’s pomp and show, You taught the heaven’s fool, a wisdom so.
 Than thee He knows not the nature of men, Who is famous as God, in the fool’s ken.
 Whose duty was praise, rosary and round, Due to thy envy, in shame ever bound.
 All wise men of West are thy pupil though, I have no faith yet in their wisdom so.
 That mischief monger Jew, the Muzdak’s soul. Each tunic gets torn from his crazy goal.
 A crow looks prone to seize the hawk’s force, How quick the time changes nature’s course.
 Being restive she scanned the skies vast space, Like fools we counted ‘dust’ of human race.
 The horrors of future, looking so great, With hills and vales shiver the brooks in spate.
 My Master! that world is going to doom, The world which looks to thy Leadership’s boom.
SATAN (To His Advisor):

Thus lies in my hold the world’s pomp an show, This earth, the Sun and Moon, the Sky’s glow.
 Shall see the East and West my game and roar. As soon I warm up Western nation’s gore.*1
 The pontiffs of church, the leaders of State, My one din’s echoe for them a dread great.
 To her a modern world if a fool espies; This culture’s wine cups will someone break and sea?
 The collars to whom the Nature has torn, The logic of Muzdak*2 to them cant darn.
 How can frighten me the Socialist lads,*3 Since long jobless, confused and loafing lads.*3
 From that nation but I feel a threat grave, whose heart yet holds hidden embers of crave.
 A few of them I espy in this nation yet, At dawn who take ‘Wuzu’*4 with tear drops jet.
 He knows on whom hidden Times are bright, The Islam, not Muzdak is the future’s fright.
