The US Presidential Election and Islam:
In case you live under a rock and didn’t know, the Presidential Election is taking place tomorrow here in the US. You hear a lot of Muslims saying that voting goes against Islam. Now, everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions, but according to many scholars, voting is encouraged. A lot of scholars around the world have issued statements promoting voting and being politically active. Below you’ll find some of these statements. Whether you’re Muslim or not, this might be of interest to you.
“As Muslims, we have the duty to command good and forbid evil. When we translate this into political action, we are to support those candidates who uphold the values or principles we cherish; so if we find a candidate who upholds the values or principles that we cherish, then we are to support him, if, however, we do not find such a candidate but we are left with two and each of them has positive and negative sides, then we should support the one whose positive side outweighs the negative.”
Shaykh Ahmad Kutty, Islamic Institute of Toronto; Islamic Center of Canada
“For their protection and for their identity to be preserved it is vital that Muslims participate in the political process of the society that they are living in.”
Shaykh Aurangzeb Khan, Imam of Dar-us-Salaam, Nottingham, UK
“I hold the opinion that it is lawful to participate in elections, as this may reduce suffering, and it is a way to choose the better among the available candidates. I believe participating in elections will, in any event, contribute to the reduction of evil and be a forum for countering bad policies and exposing their deficiencies, as well as being an opportunity to present proposals of a different kind that may help people.”
Shaykh Salman Al Awdah, Imam Bin Saud Islamic University

He said one thing that broke it all down for me, and this is the advice that changed my life completely, Alhamdulillah.
