The Islamic Ruling System is Different
In Islam you will not be subject to man-made laws. The Ruling System of the Islamic State is based upon four pillars:
1. The Sovereignty is for Allah alone.
Allah says, “The rule is to none but Allah.” [TMQ 6:57]
This means the laws governing over you are free from the fanciful desires of people who are no better than you. The issue of devising laws is the right of Allah (swt) alone.
2. The authority is for the Ummah.
‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘A’as narrated that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Whosoever pledges allegiance to an Imam giving him the clasp of his hand and the fruit of his heart shall obey him as long as he can, and if another comes to dispute with him, strike the neck of that man.” (Muslim).
Thus, the rulers are actually accountable to you, as opposed to
themselves. It is the Ummah who has the right of appointing the Khaleefeh, and they have the right to remove him if he deviates from the Shari’ah.
3. Appointing one Khaleefah is an obligation upon all.
Abu Said al-Khudri narrated that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “When the oath of allegiance has been given for two Khulafa’a kill the latter of them.” (Muslim)
In Islam, all the Muslims throughout the world are united behind one
leader. And because he implements only Allah’s law, the people are not constantly bickering amongst themselves over what he will rule by.
4. The Khaleefah alone has the exclusive power to adopt the divine laws – he alone enacts the constitution and various laws.
Allah (swt) says,
“O you who believe, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger and those of you who are in authority.” [TMQ 4:59]
Muslims carry out the orders of the Khaleefah without reservation or
dispute, as long as they fall within the bounds of Islam, as verified by
the Majlis al-Ummah, which is the Ummah’s representative.
From these, you can see that only the law of the Creator will be applied.
The job of the Khaleefah and his assistants is merely to extract from the Islamic sources the hukm (Divine Rule) for any situation which may arise and apply it. The issue here then becomes not who rules, but what he rules by.
Thus, you as a Muslim citizen of the Islamic State are the one who
appoints who is to be in authority over you. You make sure that the laws governing over you are only those that the Creator has defined for you. It is only under this law that your rights will be secured, and you won’t be subject to the whims and desires of ignorant human beings.
Similarly, it is your responsibility as a Muslim to make sure that there
actually exists a Khaleefah who will undertake this role. If one does not exist, as is the situation today, then you and the whole Muslim Ummah are sinful, unless you work hard to establish it.
‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar narrated that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said,
“Whoso takes off his hand from allegiance to Allah will meet Him on the
resurrection day without having any proof for him, and whoso dies without
a pledge of allegiance on his neck dies a death of the days of jahiliyyah
