How To Choose Your Leader

The election has been fixed for 8th Mac 2008. Now its our responsibility to choose our leaders who will lead us into the next five years. Choosing the wrong leaders who have more self interest rather than serve the community will make us more miserable. It enough of miserables we are facing and now its up to your hand to pick the right leaders. As a Muslim you will be asked by Allah in the afterworld who you choose as your leader? So it is our responsibility not to choose leaders who are liars, hypocrites, have self interest etc. because we are liable for what we chose.

Harakahdaily posted the view of an Islamic scholar tips and guidance on how to choose a leader.

Excerpts from Harakahdaily (in Bahasa Malaysia)

"Taatilah kepada aku selagi aku taat kepada Allah. Sekiranya aku menyeleweng atau melanggar perintah Allah jangan taat kepada aku. Tentanglah aku sehingga aku kembali kepada hukum Allah." -ucapan Sayidina Abu Bakar as-Siddiq ketika dilantik menjadi khalifah, selepas wafatnya baginda Rasulllah s.a.w

"Pemerintah, pemimpin atau individu yang terdiri daripada pembodek-pembodek, perasuah, guna harta dan tercalar akhlak wajib ditentang dan ditolak sama sekali berpandukan syarak dan ucapan Abu Bakar as-Siddiq itu,"

Umat Islam berkewajipan memilih pemimpin mengikut tuntutan syarak yang berpandukan al-Quran dan Sunnah di samping pemerintah juga wajib mendapat restu rakyat dan salah satu contoh yang boleh dijadikan panduan ialah ketika Rasullullah mendirikan kerajaan Islam Madinah termasuk ketika melantik Abu Bkar menjadi khalifah selepas wafatnya Nabi Muhammad.

"Kini giliran kita memilih pemimpin berpandukan kepada kaedah syarak untuk mewakili rakyat untuk Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) dan Parlimen pada pilihan raya akan datang,"

"Maksud terbaik ialah bersih dan kuat imannya, lebih bertaqwa, lebih pandai hukum Islam dan lebih komited kepada agama Allah,"

"Umat Islam boleh merujuk ayat 247 surah al-Baqarah sebagai panduan dan tips untuk memilih pemimiin dalam pilihan raya akan datang," [( Their Prophet said, "God has appointed Saul as a king for you." They replied, "How can he dominate us when we deserve more to be king than he. Besides, he does not have abundant wealth." Their Prophet said, "God has chosen him as your ruler and has given him physical power and knowledge. God grants His authority to anyone whom He wants. God is Provident and All-knowing. (2:247)]

"Taatilah pemerintah bukan bermaksud membuta tuli kepada sesiapa atau mana-mana sahaja pemimpin tetapi yang terbaik di kalangan kamu seperti yang disebut dalam al-Quran,"

Its our responsibility to elect our representative as stipulated by Allah.
