How to Deal with Present Day Rulers and Systems?– (Part 1: Index)

This blog post is a part of a series of articles : “How to Deal with Present Day Rulers and Systems”, which is an academic effort to understand the sayings of Allah’s Messenger on the topic.

“We are a nation, whom Allah honoured through Islam, and in it (Islam) we seek honour, and if we seek it in something else, Allah will dishonour us”

All praise belongs to Allah, and peace and blessings of Allah be on Prophet Muhammad  and his family and all his companions. We are living in a world where the rule of divine law is nowhere to be found. We are surrounded by Haraam from all directions. Most of us are busy making a living, and those who want to make a life, are buried under confusions. How to deal with present day secular systems and their leaders? On one hand we see narrations of Allah’s messenger on sticking to the Jam’aah of Muslims and listening and obeying the ruler and on the other hand there are narrations on disconnecting from the rulers and removing them with armed struggle. I’ve divided thirty narrations of Prophet Muhammad regarding rulers into seven different categories and there is a detailed discussion on the application of these narrations in the present world scenario.

CATEGORY 1 - NARRATIONS ON FOLLOWING THE AMEER OR JAM’AAH OF MUSLIMEEN
CATEGORY 2 - RULERS APPOINTED BY ALLAH’S MESSENGER
CATEGORY 3 - TYRANT LEADERS OR LEADERS WHO DO NOT GIVE YOU YOUR HAQQ (RIGHT) OR RULERS WHO DO NOT COMMIT KUFR E BAWAH (EVIDENT KUFR)
CATEGORY 4 - NOT FOLLOWING MAKHLUQ (CREATION) WHERE THE KHAALIQ (CREATOR) IS DISOBEYED, A GENERAL ORDER FOR ALL TIMES
CATEGORY 5 - PROPHECIES REGARDING RULERS WHO WILL NOT FOLLOW AND IMPLEMENT ISLAM & ORDER OF NOT OBEYING THEM OR HELPING THEM OR SERVING THEM
CATEGORY 6 - REBELLION WHEN THEY DON’T RULE BY LAWS OF ALLAH OR WHEN THEY COMMIT KUFR E BAWAH
CATEGORY 7 - NARRATIONS ON DISCONNECTING FROM ALL SECTS AND SYSTEMS
