The Outcome of Participation in Democratic Elections: Assaulting the Values of Muslims in Afghanistan

The Karzai corrupt and puppet government of Afghanistan has been implementing man-made laws on Muslims in Afghanistan since its establishment, which unquestionably contradict the noble values of Islam. Based on the corrupt capitalistic system, banks have spread and imposed usury and have encouraged Muslims towards it, whilst Allah سبحانه وتعالى has declared usury (Riba) haram and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم cursed the one who pays usury, one who takes it and the one who bears witness to it.

Likewise, obeying their western masters, the corrupt government of Afghanistan, passed the bill on “Curbing Violence Against Women” through the president’s decree in 2009. And since then, the bill has been executed by different governmental legal and judicial entities. In accordance to Afghan Laws, the bills that carry a decree into execution are usually laid back when the Afghan MPs are on their vacation, and they will have the chance to pass or reject it when returns to the house. Nevertheless, the bills are implemented until they are rejected. The Afghan government, hence, after three years of execution, sent the decree to the parliament for vote. The bill was not passed, as a number of the MPs opposed the bill, arguing that many clauses of the bill are against Islam, while many others welcomed the bill and its contents. There have been many demonstrations against this bill across the country as well.

O Muslims of Afghanistan!

You may remember that through our Nasihah (advice) we had strongly advised you not to participate in the democratic elections, because the dominant man-made system that is currently implemented upon you has authorized the Taghut entity (parliament) to legislate laws instead of Allah سبحانه وتعالى. It has given it the privilege to turn forbidden (Munkarat) into Mubahat (permissible), and has turned Faraidh into Hurumat. As Allah سبحانه وتعالى has clearly declared usury, friendship with Kuffar, the Kuffar’s dominance upon the Islamic Ummah, murder, spreading immorality as Haram, but it is the constitution that has prescribed the capitalistic economy for the Muslims of Afghanistan in which the whole banking system is based upon usury. The parliament on the other hand through allowing strategic agreements with the US and its allies prolongs the dominance and hegemony of the Kuffar upon the Muslims.

O Muslims of Afghanistan!

For how long would you stay calm, whilst Kuffar laws have even reached our families!

Parliament, the entity of Taghut, besides legislating laws in politics and economics, now wants to interfere into one’s personal affairs, such as the relationship between parents and offspring, husband and wife, multi-marriages, determining age for marriage etc. This devil entity, has disguised such assaults, as the “Bill on Curbing Violence against Women”. This is clearly spreading immorality among the Muslim families across Afghanistan. Passing or stalling this bill by the parliament will not make any change from an Islamic point of view, as this bill contradicts the divine rules of Islam as a whole.

Despite the bill on curbing violence against women, through which the devil in the form of democracy, breaks into your family boundaries and encourages women to flee to the so-called “Women Shelters” whenever they want. The puppet government has already signed strategic agreements with the US and a number of European countries, which were legitimized by the Loya Jirga and the parliament. Now this Taghut system wants to sign a Security Agreement with the head of Kufr (the US). This agreement will allow the US to establish its military bases in the country while preserving the US troops “immunity” after which they can commit any crime without being accountable. Thus “mentally ill” American troops are able to torture and kill the innocent Afghan Muslims and increase the assault against the religion of Islam and its values.

O you who argue with Ayat and Ahadith in favour of democracy!

We advice you with this warning from Allah سبحانه وتعالى:

وَلاَ تَلْبِسُواْ الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُواْ الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

“Do not mix up truth with falsehood and knowingly hide the truth.”

(Al-Baqara, 2:42)

Regarding the Tafseer of this verse it is narrated from Abdullah Ibn Abbas and others that: “Do not mix whatsoever you know from truth with falsehood (batil), which is a clear distortion.” So, mixing the Islamic Shura with the western and democratic parliament is mixing up truth (haq) with falsehood (batil), which is one of the greatest sins. The ones committing such actions in case they do not repent to Allah سبحانه وتعالى deserve to be punished very harshly. Therefore, in order to gain Allah سبحانه وتعالى’s mercy upon you, you need to get rid of the parliament this evil entity and repent for the sake of those Muslims who’ve been deceived watching you doing all this.

O Muslims of Afghanistan!

We call upon to hold on to the Qur’an and Sunnah. As it is narrated from Uday Ibn Umaira that the Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ لَا يُعَذِّبُ الْعَامَّةَ بِعَمَلِ الْخَاصَّةِ حَتَّى يَرَوْا الْمُنْكَرَ بَيْنَ ظَهْرَانَيْهِمْ وَهُمْ قَادِرُونَ عَلَى أَنْ يُنْكِرُوهُ فَلَا يُنْكِرُوهُ فَإِذَا فَعَلُوا ذَلِكَ عَذَّبَ اللَّهُ الْخَاصَّةَ وَالْعَامَّةَ

“Allah (azza wa jal) does not punish all the people for Munkars committed by a limited number of them. But in case, if the rest are witnessing the Munkars being committed by some others and they don’t take action against it, whilst they have the ability to, then Allah سبحانه وتعالى punishes them all.”

Therefore your participation in democratic elections is in fact indirect involvement in great sins for which Allah سبحانه وتعالى will hold you accountable. We strongly call upon you to refuse participation in the Munkar of the democratic elections. Instead you should work for the sovereignty of the Deen of Allah which is a great reward.

Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Afghanistan calls upon you to work for reviving the Islamic Khilafah which is the crown of all obligations. Let us all work together to resume the Islamic way of life after which Allah سبحانه وتعالى may grant us with Khilafah which is the true glory for Islam and the Muslims.
