In the opinion of many of the educated people, and especially many of the religious scholars, Islam has nothing to do with politics. They believe Islam and politics to be issues separate from one another. This is what the governments would like us to think; this is the idea that the foreigners have instilled into us from the beginning. Many promote the notion that the clerks should have nothing to do with political matters. When wanting to defame a clerk they would say:" This is a political clerk!" They say that Islam is separate from politics; that religion is separate from politics, but these people haven't understood Islam. The government of Islam was formed at the time of the Prophet. what is politics? Politics is the formation of policies dealing with the relationship between a ruler or government and the people or other governments, and with the prevention of corruption in society. In Islam, all these policies exist. In fact, Islam has more rules pertaining to politics than it does to worship. The books relating to the political aspects of Islam by far outnumber those concerned with worship. This mistaken notion has been put into our minds so that now some of the gentlemen, the clergymen believe that Islam has nothing to do with politics, that it consists of a few ordinances concerning worship which is itself a personal matter between God and man. You can go to your mosques and pray and recite the Qur'an as much as you’d like, and the governments will leave you alone. But this is not Islam. Islam stands up to the oppressor, it orders the people to do battle with the Taghout (oppressor) and with those who rebel against God. So with all these rules for battle, for jihad and so on, is Islam so far removed from politics?! Does Islam mean nothing other than going to the mosques, praying and reciting the Qur'an?! Islam is not only this. Islam has political laws which must be implemented.
