Due to my my working requirements, I decided I'd rather be in bed asleep then waste my time voting for a bunch of people I've never heard of (local election). I was expecting a fine, and got it in the mail today (took them long enough). I was reading the notice, and it states that one of the reasons for not voting is "I had an honest belief that abstention from voting was part of my religious duty". Interesting eh? So I did a little research, and found out that many Muslims choose not to vote (although this is not a rule), because they believe that the islamic Sharia'ah (laws based on the Qur'an and the teaching of Muhammad, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) are the best way to live. I wonder.. if it's time to convert to Islam? :twisted: So do you vote? Would you if you didn't have to?
