Democracy in Light of the Qurʾān and Sunnah

Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz al-Buraʿī

A multitude of clear proofs opposing the ‘way of life’ known as democracy (the worshipping of the majority!).

From the issues discussed:

  • Democracy is a man-made way of life.
  • Democracy opposes the essence of Islām.
  • The issue of women as rulers.
  • The clear immorality of democracy.
  • The unsuccessful implementation of justice through democracy.
  • The falsehood of claiming democracy contains some good in light its opposition to the Sunnah and the Salaf.
  • The Shūrah vs The Democracy (Returning back to the book of Allāh or returning to desires and personal gain).
