According to Molvi Ebrahim Bham it is important and necessary for Muslims to participate and to take an interest in issues related to the governance of the country. Is his view correct in terms of the Shariah?

Reverend Abraham Bham has lost his Imaani soul many years ago. He is among the worst mudhilleen (misguiders) masquerading as a ‘maulana’ and a guide for Muslims. He is infact one of the many small dajjals which clutter history and who will bob up from time to time to further the cause of Iblees.

Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’aan Majeed:

“Those who do not govern according to that (Shariah) revealed by Allah, indeed they are the kaafiroon.”
“Those who do not govern according to that (Shariah) revealed by Allah, indeed they are the zaalimoom.”

“Those who do not govern according to that (Shariah) revealed by Allah, indeed they are the faasiqoon.”
Those who profess to be Muslims, but participate in kufr governance are kaafiroon, zaalimoon and faasiqoon in terms of the Qur’aan Majeed. The entire fabric of governance in both Muslim and non-Muslim countries is kufr and haraam. How can it ever be permissible for Muslims to be a party to such governance?

A Muslim of healthy Imaan does not require a high level of Deeni Ilm to understand the haraam drivel which Reverend Abraham Bham has disgorged. These mudhilleen are experts in executing the job of Iblees – the job of paving the pathway to Jahannam.

Allah Ta’ala has created us for the Aakhirah, not for this dunya. Participating in the najaasat of kuffaar politics is tantamount to kufr. It hardens the heart, blights the intelligence and seriously corrodes Imaan. It is not permissible for Muslims to indulge in activities which divert the mind and heart from the Objective of the Aakhirah. Every step in the process of kufr government is violently in conflict with the Shariah.

Muslims should attend to their moral reformation to gain the Proximity of Allah Ta’ala. He is our protector. The Qur’aan Majeed states: “And Allah protects you against the people.” Our gaze is on creatures because of the extreme deficiency of our Imaan. Our hearts are bereft of Allah’s khauf, hence we suffer from the malady of fear for shadows. Once Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) informed the Sahaabah that a time will dawn “when Allah will eliminate from the hearts of our enemies fear for us, and He will implant in our hearts wahn.” When he was asked to explain ‘wahn’, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Love for the dunya and dislike for Maut.” Nabi-e-Kareem (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) furthermore said that at such a time Muslims “will be rubbish, like the flotsam of flood waters.”

Reverend Abraham Bham and other agents of Iblees of his ilk, call towards shaitaan and Jahannam while Allah Ta’ala calls us to the everlasting success and salvation of the Aakhirah. The Qur’aan Majeed says:
“Then We have established you on a Shariah regarding (all your) affairs. Therefore, follow it (the Shariah), and do not follow the vain desires of those who do not know.”

It is haraam to participate in the politics and governance of countries in this era even if the country is a Muslim one. All regimes in all Muslim countries are kuffaar.
