Democracy: A Religion (Special Edition)
After having read the book entitled Democracy: A Religion – written in the Arabic language – by our brother in Islaam, Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, I felt a great need to inform the non-Arabic speaking Muslims of this dangerous disaster. The disaster that has polluted the minds, and the monotheism and the doctrine of many of the believing people.
With regards to this clear cut form of disbelief, many of the disbelievers have been active in deceptive rhetoric, to try to prove this form of disbelief as not being a religion. I was pleased with the fact that our dear brother, Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, provided a comprehensive refutation of those who believe in the void constitutions and the false laws of democracy. Our dear brother also used many authentic evidences from the Qur’an and the Sunnah, with the addition of logical intellectual evidences, to prove his arguments – and thus wrote an essay which the mind could easily comprehend, without there being any contradictions or nonsensical statements.
I had searched for a long time to obtain a comprehensive refutation of the disbelievers innovation of democracy, and of the polytheistic parliamentary councils – and our dear Shaykh has provided this. I found all of these things in this valuable book, so I decided to translate the book into English, so that the rest of mankind who may not be able to comprehend Arabic, would be able to distinguish the Truth from falsehood, the guidance from the error, and to be an evidence against those who believe in democracy.
