Islam stands for true social justice, equality,
equitable distribution of wealth, regard for
individual rights, eradication of nepotism and
favoritism, bribery and hoarding, safety and respect
for human life, true peace irrespective of class,
religion or party, right of worship according to faith
and brotherhood. The last sermon of the Holy Prophet
(Peace be upon him) is the Magna Carta of human
The Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) laid the
foundation of an Islamic state on the basis of Islamic
Sharia in which all decisions are made in consultation
with leading citizens of the Islamic state.
That system was followed by four pious Caliphs where
every decision regarding peace or war was made by
consulting the leading citizens of the state. In an
Islamic state all citizens were equal and enjoyed
equal rights. The Zakat system was introduced in order
to help the poor and needy citizens of the Islamic
In Islam all sovereignty belongs to Allah and power to
rule is a Holy trust. All laws are taken from the Holy
Quran, the word of Allah. These laws are not limited
to a specific period of time but are for all eternity.
Islam gives a complete code of life. In Islam politics
cannot be separated from religion. Unlike Christianity
that has created a Sunday attitude towards religion,
Islam covers all aspects of life and activities of man
from cradle to the grave.

religious intolerance, human rights abuse and so many

number of individuals rule a state and govern it. They
can do whatever they desire by passing bills and
legislations with their elected members.
Democracy is not for the whole nation but only for the
party in power. We are living in the most confused age
of democracy. The elected representatives simply raise
their hands and follow the whims of the leaders of the
majority party without weighing right and wrong or
blindly follow party manifesto without caring for the
common and collective good. The elections are so
expensive that only the rich can afford to fight the
election and use all fair and foul means to win. In
such limitations only particular families dominate the
The party in power tries to enforce new policies and
new laws. Thus there is no socio-economic stability
and peace. Party system also breeds factionalism and
justice is sacrificed at the altar of political
expediency and convenience. Thus the whole order
becomes corrupt and invites authoritative rule.
Conclusions: Sharia is our solution to success and
not democracy because Sharia gives:
> Total Justice.
> Total security.
> Best economic development.
> Best allocation of resources.
> Total stability and satisfaction for individuals and
