Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Is it permissible to take part in non-Muslim governments with the intention of letting the Muslims have a voice in domestic and foreign politics?
Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullah,
Yes, it is not only permitted but praiseworthy and practically needed. However, such participation should be part of a larger vision for the Muslim community in the particular area or country.
