Why Vote? The Muslims Concern for the Public Good? (and what if we’re disillusioned with politics)-Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

In this Khutba, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani discusses the approach Muslims should have when engaging with elections and issues of politics. All Muslims should focus on bringing about the benefit for their communities. It is vital that Muslims should have a concern about how they are governed and how various policies affect them and their communities. Shaykh Faraz reminds the congregation that by intending to bring about benefit and dispelling harm, they will fulfill an important obligation of bringing about good for themselves and fellow citizens. Additionally, the power of dua and an optimistic attitude should never be underestimated. Ultimately, Muslims should implore Allah to guide them in making the best decisions in their daily lives. Making fervent and sincere dua for others is a noble act that brings about blessings and well being. By having complete trust and reliance on Allah coupled with taking the means that Allah has created, Muslims will ensure that they are positive contributors to their societies
