Blood Brothers #20: Muslim democratic participation from an Islamic perspective

In this special General Election episode of the Blood Brothers podcast, Dilly Hussain hosts Abdullah al Andalusi from the Muslim Debate Initiative and Dr Salman Butt, editor of Islam21C.

In this lively discussion, the guests cover:

  • Is democracy and Islam compatible?
  • Is it permissible for Muslims to vote in secular democratic elections?
  • Is voting an obligation, permissible, haram or kufr? – Can Muslims vote for unIslamic political parties based on preventing greater harms and bringing about greater benefits?
  • Is the issue of voting really a matter of lesser of two evils or necessity?
  • Is Brexit good or bad for Muslims?
  • Why should Muslims vote for Labour when their manifesto includes various unIslamic pledges?

All the above and much more is discussed in this engaging episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast.

As you’re here…

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
