it should be an illegal offence to not vote in general elections!

Showing 51 to 54 of 54

i know right, couldnt have put in better words, its so interesting that all the Muslim countries, Egypt, Syria,Libya they were all involved in massive wars and Syria is still now, this is one the sign of the day of judgment, war amongst Muslim countries. Even, in our own community let alone countries like Saudi Arabia, there are Muslims by name who are involved in drinking, drugs, smoking etc ; I know someone in my class, she is only 15, she is already into these stuffs.

aw ok, sorry its just i only created these social networking sites if I feel they are right, i created one, my username is Humayra x

yes that is true, ah yes i have met those people myself its really sad, their parents dont even realize i think upbringing also has a bit of role in this but its up to the individuals as well. the problem i think occurs due to lack of fear of Allah (swt) we are so indulged in this dunya that we forget about the akhira, our final destination 

no need to apologize :) nah its better to find out if they are any good, i added you and sent you a message there :)

salam :D yh upbringing is certainly one factor, and were just fortunate that we have a good family with a good upbringing. i know this mdoern society, omg the things us muslims are now involved in, its like u can easily get addicted and distracted from the akhirah, like listetning to music, going out.. u name it.. but ur right the individual also has a responsiblty as they are mature now and they will in the day of judgement account for the own deeds.

thanks for adding me x :) do u want to continue this convo on paltalk ?

Wandering back onto the original topic, why couldn't we have a vote on the ballot of abstention, possibly with differentiation between abstaining on religious grounds and abstaining on the grounds of feeling that your religion doesn't allow it. It could then be made compulsory to go and use your ballot paper, but wouldn't have to actually vote. This would at least force people to think about who they would vote for. This is (I believe) how it works in Australia where you can get fined $200 for not voting. Better advertising of local politics would also probably help, given that quite a lot of the time the parties are preaching to the converted, instead of to those who couldn't care less about the government.
