Once the reality is known, of what is established in these Democratic Elections by way of voting — in that you are upholding a Taghuti system which elects legislators besides Allah to supplant and challenge the Law of Allah that was revealed to His Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Once this reality is established, there can be no excuse of Maslahah or Darūrah (dire need) in participating in this Shirk and Kufr.

‎There is no Maslahah that supersedes protecting the Tawheed of people. Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said in his مجموع الفتاوى:


‎أَنَّ الْمُحَرَّمَاتِ قِسْمَانِ: " أَحَدُهُمَا " مَا يَقْطَعُ بِأَنَّ الشَّرْعَ لَمْ يُبِحْ مِنْهُ شَيْئًا لَا لِضَرُورَةِ وَلَا لِغَيْرِ ضَرُورَةٍ: كَالشَّرَكِ

‎"That which is impermissible [within the Shari’ah] is categorized into two types: 1st — that which the Shari’ah doesn’t allow to be done [in any circumstance], whether a dire need is present or not, such as Shirk…"

‎So how foolish is it to forgo the greatest Maslahah, by performing the greatest Mafsadah! What Maslahah is mightier and heavier than Tawheed, and what Mafsadah is mightier than committing the mother of all Mafāsid (i.e., Shirk)?

‎They improperly apply the principle of "choosing between the lesser of two evils," where it shouldn't and can't be applied, all the while ignoring its necessary conditions and stipulations (in its application as it pertains to circumstances like this) — such as one being under duress (Ikrāh), where one is forced to commit two prohibitions, at which point one may choose the lesser of two evils. This is how they misrepresent Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah on the matter.

‎Ironically, in their false claim of "choosing the lesser of two evils," they've in fact chosen the worst of all evils, the mightiest evil, the evil for which has no evil above it, the evil of participating in Shirk.

‎Warding off the evil of Shirk, always takes precedence over any perceived benefit or Maslahah that one can imagine. Shaykh Sulaymān Ibn Sahmān said:
إِذَا عَرَفْتَ أَنَّ التَّحَاكُمَ إِلَى الطَّاغُوتِ كُفْرٌ، فَقَدْ ذَكَرَ اللَّهُ فِي كِتَابِهِ أَنَّ الْكُفْرَ أَكْبَرُ مِنْ الْقَتْلِ، قَالَ: {وَالْفِتْنَةُ أَكْبَرُ مِنْ الْقَتْلِ}، وَقَالَ: {وَالْفِتْنَةُ أَشَدُّ مِنْ الْقَتْلِ}، وَالْفِتْنَةُ: هِيَ الْكُفْرُ; فَلَوْ اقْتَتَلَتْ الْبَادِيَةُ وَالْحَاضِرَةُ، حَتَّى يَذْهَبُوا، لَكَانَ أَهْوَنَ مِنْ أَنْ يَنْصِبُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ طَاغُوتًا، يَحْكُمُ بِخِلَافِ شَرِيعَةِ الْإِسْلَامِ، الَّتِي بَعَثَ اللَّهُ بِهَا رَسُولَهُ ﷺ.

‎"If you know that seeking the judgement of the Taghūt is Kufr, then know that Allah says in His Book, that Kufr is [an even] bigger [transgression] than killing, He says: {…and Al-Fitnah is worse than killing…} and {…and Al-Fitnah is more severe of a transgression than killing...}, and Al-Fitnah: is Kufr; so if the city and desert inhabitants were to fight, until they kill each other off – that would be better than appointing in the lands a Taghūt, who governs the lands by other than the Shari’ah of Islam, of which was Sent down by Allah upon his Messenger ﷺ."

‎The Muslims were boycotted in a valley called شِعْب أبي طالب for 3-years, and they later migrated to Abyssinia, all because they refused to compromise in their Tawheed, nor agree to any Kufr.

‎With that, the only exemption is genuine Ikrāh (الإكراه الملجئ - a dire compulsion which makes one totally choice-less and helpless) — and the baseline to be considered as such in the context of voting, is likened to being taken to the ballots and someone having a gun to your head threatening to kill you if you don’t vote.

‎And Allah Knows Best.
Shaykh Ahmad Musa Jibril
