A cosmic conversation takes place between Allah and His Angels when Allah informs his Angels that He will send man (Adam and his progeny) to be in the charge of the whole earth as His vicegerant. As a natural consequence of this there will be authority. The question is whether man will rule by the laws of Allah as his vicegerent or rule with his desires; one will lead to our ascension, the other our destruction. We as Muslims should try to see things from the point of view of all those prospective Muslim mayors, councillors and MP’s and think about whether we are willing to compromise our Deen. If not, we should not vote for them to compromise on our behalf. If you were given authority, who’s law will you implement? Will you wield authority in the way Allah wanted us, or will you become part of the secular democratic system? Surah Baqarah Ayah 30: “Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: “I will create a vicegerent on earth.” This brief talk was based on the Tafseer of Ibn Kathir, Al-Jalalayn, Qurtubi and others.
