Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Brotherhood spiritual and intellectual leader, 2000

Yusuf al-Qaradawi
Anti-Democracy

“As a Muslim society we should adopt it in an Islamic context of a society that seeks to live with its Sharia laws. Our society should abide by what have been made lawful by Allah SW [Subhanahu wa’ta’ala, Glorious and Exalted] and abide by what also made unlawful by him SW [sic]. In comparison democracy, with a slim majority can cancel all laws and rules. It can even eliminate itself with this type of margin. In fact, in some case democracy may become worse than dictatorship.”Lorenzo Vidino, The New Muslim Brotherhood in the West (New York: Columbia University Press, 2010), 63.
