The laws of democracy without doubt militate against the laws of Allâh; this is Kufr as was earlier pointed out. Verses have been mentioned regarding the fact that Allâh alone has the sole authority to make laws and that whoever makes judgement with other than the Book of Allâh and the Sunnah of His Messenger -Sallallahu alahyi wa sallam - such has referred judgement to Tâghût.
Allâh the Mighty said:
Have you seen those (hypocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Tâghût (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaytân wishes to lead them far astray. [Nisâ: 60]
To adopt democracy is to make oneself subservient to a book which there is no guidance in it for the Muslims. That book is the constitution which is man made.
For instance the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria declares:
We the People of the Federal Republic of Nigeria:
Do hereby make, enact and give to ourselves the following Constitution:
The Constitution goes ahead to say in s.1 (1):
This Constitution is supreme and its provisions shall have binding force on all authorities and persons throughout the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
In its subsection three it declares:
If any other law is inconsistent with the provisions of this Constitution, this Constitution shall prevail, and that other law shall to the extent of the inconsistency be void.
