What is the Islamic view on democracy?
From his [= the Prophet's ] time, democracy has consisted of a "shura" or council. With "shura", people sit together, consult with one another and decide on one person to represent them. From the beginning, Islam has mandated democracy through a "shura". The biggest evidence of democracy in Islam is what happened when the Prophet ﷺ passed away without appointing anyone to succeed him. Sultans and kings appoint their elder sons as their successors, but the Prophet ﷺ didn't appoint anyone and left it for the Muslims to decide.
