The True Understanding of Politics in Islām (al-Siyāsah)

The correct understanding of Islamic principles as they relate to Sharīʿah politics and a rebuke of the innovated political principles of the activists of today.

The best way to change the evil is for Muslims to repent to their Lord, correct their beliefs, and nurture themselves and their families according to the correct Islām.

Indeed, all praise is for Allāh subḥānahu wa taʿala. We praise Him, we seek His help, we seek His forgiveness, and we seek refuge in Allāh from the evils of our souls and our evil actions. Whosoever Allāh guides then none can misguide and whosoever Allāh misguides then none can guide aright. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allāh alone, having no partners, and I bear witness that Muḥammad ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam is His servant and Messenger.

My dear brothers & sisters in Islām, no doubt, it will not have escaped your attention that once again this summer a conference was convened by a group of misguided brothers to discuss, once again, the current political climate in the Middle East, Israel, and the Muslim world as a whole. Declarations were set to be made regarding the leaders of our nations, and the causes of our downfall. Yet although the event was canceled at the last minute, the misguided understanding and false notions that groups such as these maintain, hold many dangers for our communities. It is especially dangerous for the young and enthusiastic ones amongst us, who, although sincere are open to be deceived by the people of empty speech, empty slogans, and little understanding of the Qurʾān and Sunnah.
