Islam is the BEST DEMOCRACY, here is why:
Western Democracy works on majority, while Islamic DEMOCRACY works on individual level.
Let's make it simple and break it down:
- Islam is the nation.
- A Muslim is the citizen of Islam.
- The constitution of Islam is the Quran.
Those three points make a perfect Democracy, because you choose whether you want to become a Muslim or not, no need for voting, no need for majority,
while the minority watches and wait until it becomes the Majority etc.
Once you become a Muslim you accept the Quran as your constitution, and govern yourself, and those who want to be under Islam, through Quran, which
makes a perfect DEMOCRACY.

To my fellow human and brother oozyism, Peace be unto you and fellow human readers.
I have read your simple comparison and understand why you would presume the holy book as a Constitution to rule Mankind, more so as it is filled with
instructions on the true path humanity must take in order to avoid been doomed.
You are also correct that the Koran is the ONLY intermediary between man and Allah and is personal that no other man can interfere. There MUST BE NO
intermediaries comming between Allah and man.
It was the way as the good prophet Muhammad, the last messenger sent from Allah, would have wanted upon the expiry of his human body and rejoined back
to the Heavens.
He left no successor, for as he is only a prophet, it is the will of Allah to present one, for the community to choose or not to choose on their free
The final message came at a time when mankind once again had been corrupted by the few evil men to sought to dominate Earth, after the Messiah, a
prophet whom even the holy Muhammad had acknowledged, had tried to save humanity that our Creator loved.
And yet, no sooner had the final blessed messenger breathed his last, evil men once again sought for dominance and corrupted all that was good in the
It is not enough to read the Koran, but to read the history of how it came about and its aftermath, for example, how the first revelations by Allah
was not written on paper or papyrus, but on leafs and skins.
Only the truth will set us free from the manipulations by evil men.
It was only after his death was the beautiful Koran compiled, but by them it was re-edited as evil men who rule determined how it should be, some
added, some burnt, and how much of the true message had been lost...
But the purpose and existance of the Koran alone proves that our Creator loves us, even with added or missing pages just as the Bible was, and wants
us to use our free will wisely, and not to harm anymore of His creations.
There was a time for war, but even more so, there is a time for peace, for all to live and love as He would have us, his creations to be.
We are all to be role models and inspiration for the rest of humanity whom knows not our Creator or His love and path laid out for us to evolve. It is
not the form of worship, the outward piousness we show to others that will lead others back to our Creator.
It is from our hearts, and actions we do daily in our lives that will lead the way. And if you think the Koran, or at least the purpose of it is to
show the way, regardless if it is labelled as Democracy, Socialism, Communism or whatever political labels popular with the day, then you and I must
lead by example, to show peace, compassion, charity, logic to others and lead them to equality, progress, prosperity, justice and evolution of mankind
as one, with common aspirations, for we all came from the same Creator...
Trust not my words, for I am not a proohet, only a simple insignificant nobody but judge my post for its merits and consider its meanings for
neccesary action on yours and my part to our families, relatives and friends that makes up our world you and I share.
