Democracy… in the Scale
O Muslims, here is a very important question: why are a lot of people –in democracy– keen in running for elections?
They may even spend hundreds of thousands to get a seat in the Parliament.
The answer: democracy, in reality, gives the MPs and officials salaries and privileges that are completely different from those of the ordinary people. They are tenfold, or rather hundredfold than them.
However, in Islam all are equals; ordinary people and the officials. In addition, it is a massive responsibility before Allah, Glorified and Exalted, in the Hereafter.
Therefore, the Companions and the righteous ancestors used to run away from such responsibility. Allah is the Greatest.
O Allah, guide my people because they do not know. Have I conveyed, O Allah be my witness.
