YOUR VOTE IS YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO BETTER LIVING STANDARDS.
As Muslims, we have a duty to command good and forbid evil. When we translate this into political action, we are to support candidates who in our view will be best suited to procure ‘good’ for our collective communities even if the candidate happens to be a non -Muslim.
Abu Barzah, (ra) once asked Nabi (saw): `O Messenger of Allah, teach me something that I may benefit from.' He said, `Remove anything harmful from the path of the Muslims."
