Is Voting allowed?


Assalm-mu- Alaikum

It is voting time in UK so I have question surrounding this.

Is it permissible to vote?

Does it make a difference if it is a muslim or non muslim country?

If the answer is NO, the why is there a difference of opinion and is it all down to interpretations.

JazakAllah for you time.


Alaykum Al-Salam
Voting in none Muslim countries is allowed. If it helps Muslim to live there with more ease it is recommended even.
