Here’s a typical scenario The Akh had recently;
“So, you know we’re about 10 weeks away from the general election, you thought about who you’re voting for?
“Bro, voting is Haraam full stop, voting for a Kafir to rule over Muslims is Haraam. Voting for anyone to rule with other than Islam is Haraam, Haraam, Haraam….HARAAM!!!
Those who say voting is haram and kufr do so on the understanding that voting is participating in a democratic system that upholds the sovereignty of man over Allah Az Wajjal.
Further clarification would reveal that if Muslims do not participate, they are effectively advocating and helping establish a system in which people are free to legislate against Al-Islam.
How have you arrived to the bewildering conclusion that by voting you have somehow changed your allegiance from Allah Az’Wajjal to prostrating towards Parliament or Downing Street?
Voting and participating in the electoral process is not tantamount to legislating against Islam.
Parliament is not the actual power base of modern society. The reality is that parliament is only a stage managed debating club which ratifies what has been discussed elsewhere.
If you are a citizen of this country, you live in this country, you took every advantage “the political system” afforded you, from the NHS and the welfare state, to your schooling and education, to the public transport and road networks you use everyday and the fact is if you are in gainful employment, you pay taxes, taxes that will buy bombs & weaponry that inevitably go towards further terrorising your Muslim brothers and sisters overseas, and yet we have the same old arguments over why we shouldn’t be voting.
