2019 Election Results

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gra­cious, the Most Mer­ci­ful.

As-salā­mu ‘alaykum wa-rah­mat­ul­lāhi wa-barakā­tuh (Peace, Bless­ings & Mer­cy of Allah be upon You).

This state­ment is being issued on the 13th of Decem­ber 2019 and super­sedes all pre­vi­ous state­ments on the sub­ject.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Con­ser­v­a­tives and Prime Min­is­ter the Rt Hon Boris John­son on win­ning the elec­tions.

This morn­ing the Prime Min­is­ter spoke of “One Nation Con­ser­v­a­tive Gov­ern­ment”, we hope that is how Britain will be gov­erned. When it comes to eth­nic minori­ties, we all must work togeth­er to reduce the tem­per­a­ture, cut down the rhetoric, heal the nation and bring every­one togeth­er for a bet­ter Britain. We agree with the words of the Prime Min­is­ter, “Let’s unite this coun­try, let’s spread oppor­tu­ni­ty to every cor­ner of the UK, with superb edu­ca­tion, superb infra­struc­ture, and tech­nol­o­gy.”

To the Mus­lims, we say that the past two elec­tion cycles wit­nessed an increas­ing num­ber of British Mus­lims becom­ing polit­i­cal­ly active and involved at grass roots lev­el which is a fan­tas­tic change in our com­mu­ni­ties.

We need to redou­ble our efforts in striv­ing to bring a pos­i­tive change to British soci­ety. We must puri­fy our inten­tions and work to please our Cre­ator, exclu­sive­ly. The Qurān and the Sun­nāh teach us that there is good­ness in cir­cum­stances which we may super­fi­cial­ly per­ceive to be advan­ta­geous or adverse. No mat­ter how you vot­ed, it’s time to build rela­tion­ships with the new­ly elect­ed mem­bers of Par­lia­ment at a local and nation­al lev­el.
