  • Yasir Qadhi: We should stop pretending democracy is best way forward

    In a reaction to Donald Trump’s election victory, American Muslim scholar Shaykh Yasir Qadhi says America has elected a racist, xenophobic, misogynistic bigot as President.

    Shaykh Yasir says American Muslims are currently in shock and fear and Islamophobia and bigotry have become mainstream.

    He also says that Trump’s election proves that democracy is flawed and that American Muslims can no longer afford to be quietist. Instead, they must be politically-engaged.

    "Democracy in america is flawed so let's engage in it"
    شَكَوْتُ إلَى وَكِيعٍ سُوءَ حِفْظِي
    فَأرْشَدَنِي إلَى تَرْكِ المعَاصي
    وَأخْبَرَنِي بأَنَّ العِلْمَ نُورٌ
    ونورُ الله لا يهدى لعاصي

      What.
      You think you know more than my scholar's qiyās? He was more learned than you and all other scholars combined. Yeah, the devil was the greatest scholar too and look where his qiyās of fire being better than tīn got him. Sorry.

      You follow your scholar's qiyās, and I will follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah.

        It's more 'democracy is flawed but we have to engage in it'.

            Because american muslims really have the ability to 'fix democracy' in a country that can't stand them...

            What do these people believe in, the quran or democracy? so much effort being put into fixing and fitting into someone else's system while throwing away our own.

              I hope this anti trump drama and protests settle down soon...Afterall a president has lil or no power compare to a system/lobby.
              ".......He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them (kuffar) their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy.Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it;but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief."(5:64)

                  Although democracy itself and on it's own is not necessarily the right way, even this democracy with it's true humanist and secular definition can not be found in USA rather it is demoncrazy !

                  For sure democracy on it's own is flawed as an ideology and it can never be complete. Democracy should be constrained. Regardless of such facts, the question is that how much the USA system is democratic at all while only two parties can participate in the political activities and only they have media, power and .....
                  Note: I am a shia.

                    One of the points he mentions is that if more of the Muslims voted as well as other minority groups, it would've tipped the scale and Hillary would've been elected. He isn't saying that Muslims can fix democracy rather that they should participate and get their voice heard.

                      The whole cabinet is pretty anti Islam so it's not looking good.

                        The problem is Muslims putting their faith in Hillary, as if she's any better.
