It is not permissible to elect to city councils etc those who mock the Islamic religion
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a Muslim to elect to city councils or any other kind of council someone who believes in communism or mocks religion or embraces nationalism and regards it as a religion?.

Praise be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for a Muslim to elect to city councils or any other kind of council someone who is known to be a communist or to mock the Islamic religion or to believe in nationalism and regard it as a religion, because by electing him he is accepting him as his representative and helping him to be in a position where he could spread evil or cause corruption, and help those who agree with him and his beliefs. That position may enable him to harm those who differ from him and deprive them of their rights or some of them. It is also a way of encouraging him to persist in his false beliefs and implement them as much as he wants.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
