Q: Is voting permissible? If I live in Pakistan and I vote for a Muslim who will work for the betterment of the country. If I won’t vote, maybe a wrong person comes in charge and can destroy our country.


A: We do not have full clarity on this mas’alah. Therefore, we ourselves do not participate.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
