Question & Answer

Does islam allow a woman to join politics?


Answer:



بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Allah Says in the Quran: ...Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard (their chastity, their husbands property and honor, etc.)QURAN[4:34]

Narrated by Abu Hurayrah When Allah's Messenger (saws) was asked which woman was best, he (saws) replied, "The one who pleases (her husband) when he looks at her, obeys him when he gives a (lawful) command, and does not go against his wishes regarding her person or property by doing anything of which he disapproves." TIRMIDHI[3272]

Islam does not prohibit a woman from entering the field of 'politics' if she wishes to do so, provided she does not compromise or neglect the obligatory duties and responsibilities which Islam has laid upon her. And Allah alone knows the best

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
