Indeed Satan is an open enemy to you. [EMQ 7:22]

The original scriptures of the Jews, Christians and the authentic texts of the Muslims all have the same viewpoint when it comes to Satan that he will try his utmost to take you to hellfire forever (by deception). Here are some facts about Satan:

Tawheed Ar-Ruboobiyyah – This means to single out God alone exclusively with the actions of creating absolutely everything, remember human beings can make and manufacture but they cannot create from nothing. Satan knew God was the creator of everything in the heavens and the earth. (Satan) said “I am better than him (man). You created me from fire and You created him (man) from clay.” [EMQ 38:76]

Tawheed Al-Asma was Sifaat – This means to single out God alone uniquely with what he has named Himself with or attributed Himself with. No one else can be described by these names and attributes. A person can be mighty but he or she is not the All Mighty, this title is the right of God only. Satan had complete conviction that God is Al-Izzah (the All Mighty) (Satan) said “By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all” [EMQ 38:82]

Tawheed Al-Ebaadah – This means to single out God alone exclusively for all acts of worship, therefore you do not have any intermediaries between you and God when you want to carry out a task (religious or political). Satan directed his supplication exclusively to God and did not ask help from any of the other creation (s). (Satan) said “Oh my Lord! Give me then respite till the Day they (the dead) will be resurrected.” [EMQ 15:36]

At this stage you may be wondering how Satan became a polytheist even though he prayed to God, accepted the essence of God, swore in the name of God, feared God and had dialogue with God. Well the answer lies in the area of being obedient and subservient to God who is the only law maker.

Tawheed Al-Hakimiyyah – This means to single out God alone as being the sole commander and legislator, so when God tells you to do something one must do it, whether you feel it is good for you or bad for you because God is Al- Hakeem (the All Wise) And (remember) when We said to the angels: “Prostrate yourselves before Adam.” And they prostrated except Satan, he refused and was proud and was one of the disbelievers (disobedient to Allâh). [EMQ 2:34]

So contemplate on the seriousness of going against the commandments of God i.e. if serious enough they can invalidate your Emaan (belief, sayings and actions). Reflect upon the consequences of someone other than God making laws for themselves or others i.e. MP’s. This is more dangerous than disobedience to God because you are now competing with God by saying I can carry out the function which is only allowed for God. Now consider this can we vote for someone with the knowledge they will be legislating in  the houses of parliament? Definitely Not! This action is equivalent to putting yourself on par with God and negates ones Emaan by electing for manmade laws to be in governance.

All the Apostles of God (Adam, Noah, Lot, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David, Jesus and Muhammad) had a coherent pattern of calling to the oneness of God in all spheres of your life i.e. Gods laws should be implemented everywhere And We did not send any Messenger before you (Oh Muhammad) but We revealed to him (saying) None has the right to be worshipped truthfully but I (God), so worship (follow, submit, obey) Me (Alone and none else). [EMQ 21:25] Today we see society in an absolute mess (adultery, alcohol, binge drinking, crime, fraud, homelessness, paedophilia, porn, poverty, suicides, wars etc.) and people are searching for a real intellectual alternative and that original choice is to have divine solutions for manmade problems. It is not to switch from one end of the political spectrum to the other (left to right or right to left) like a pendulum. Islam which means to submit is a unique divine way of life that was implemented for 1302 years successfully (including Spain, Portugal, Sicily, Rhodes, Crete etc.) and that is what we all should be calling for.

Tawheed Al-Ithiba – This means to single out the specific Messenger in following his teachings, in the era of Moses it was his rulings, 2000 years ago it was Jesus and today it is the guidance of the last and final Messenger Muhammad (saw). Satan has vowed to make sure people will not follow these teachings (Satan said) I shall indeed adorn the path of error for them (mankind) on the earth, and I shall mislead them all. [EMQ 15:39]

Some people have fallen into the trap that it is in the interest for Muslims to vote, we remind them that nothing is beneficial in committing Shirk (i.e. polytheism the complete opposite to Tawheed) and (Satan said) Verily, I will mislead them and surely I will arouse in them false desires. [EMQ 4:119] Satan has conned people into thinking it is good to vote for Labour, Liberals, Respect, Tories etc. Satan made fair-seeming to them that which they used to do. [EMQ 6:43] We warn those who advocate participating in  the manmade system (democracy) that you are inviting people to go to hellfire, embrace Islam and be liberated and those Muslims who do vote in the general election Allah informs them

Verily, those who have apostatised after the guidance has been manifested to them – Satan has beautified (the apostasy) for them (by tempting them to vote for man to be sovereign) [EMQ 47:25]
