Islam and Democracy | Democracy is Shirk | Tawheed al-Hakimiyyah (Odysee Video Playlist)



The core principle of Democracy is that the people govern themselves by coming up with their own laws and then voting on them, and then the laws with the majority of votes go into effect. This system is based on man’s misguided desires and upon the majority decision:

“And if you obey most of those on earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah’s Path. They follow nothing but conjectures, and they do nothing but lie.”

“Have you seen the one who takes as his god his own desire?”

Democracy takes Allah’s right to legislate, which He has alone as He is the only Creator and the only Lord and thus the only One Who decides halaal and haraam (i.e. the principle of Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah), and instead gives it to man. This is clear cut kufr and shirk, and to willingly participate in this system by voting is an act of shirk. The political climate is irrelevant and makes no difference.

Democracy is a system of the people, by the people, for the people. Islam is the system of Allah, by Allah, for Allah. The two can never intermix or be compatible with each other.

“And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.”

“Say, “Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds.”

There is ample evidence regarding this issue provided below, and there was absolutely no difference of opinion amongst the Salaf as-Saliheen about this issue. This issue has only arisen in our current times of confusion, fitnah, and the misguided and wicked “scholars” of our times. May Allah grant us Ikhlas, and understanding, and guide us to what pleases Him, ameen.

What Allah Said about His Legislation:

“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.”

“Is not Allah the Best of judges?”

“And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the disbelievers.”

“They have not besides Him any protector, and He shares not His legislation with anyone.”

“Then is it the judgement of [the time of] ignorance they desire? But who is better than Allah in judgement for a people who are certain [in faith].”

“O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those [Muslims] in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result. Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to Taghut, while they were commanded to reject it; and Satan wishes to lead them far astray. And when it is said to them, “Come to what Allah has revealed and to the Messenger,” you see the hypocrites turning away from you in aversion.”

“But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission.”

“So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.”

Nationalism: American or Otherwise

As for those who want to unite under the American flag (or the flags of any other kafir nation), or wear American flag hijabs, this is nothing more than a call to asibiyyah (nationalism) and jahiliyyah (the pre-Islamic time of ignorance). And how can you promote or wear the flag of a nation that bombs and kills Muslims on a daily basis, and has been doing so for years?

The “Lesser of Two Evils” Argument

And for those who claim that voting is for the benefit of the Muslims by choosing the lesser of two evils, this has already been tried by Muslims several times, and it only results in disaster.

Beware of the Western so-called “Scholars” and “Da’iees”

Beware of most of the wicked “scholars”, speakers, and Da’iees of today, particularly from the West. They are only mouthpieces for the Taghut and nothing more. They teach “modernized Western Islam”, not the Islam that was taught by the Prophet (peace be upon him) and that was understood by by the Sahabah and the Salaf as-Saliheen. They are themselves misguided and so they misguide others. Stay away from them and guard your Deen!

Misguided and Astray Scholars:

You may be asking yourself, “Well why have I never heard any of this before? None of my scholars talk about this…”
