All praises belong to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. And peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah

Legal Disclaimer: This letter is of a political nature – not of a religious nature – and we all write this in our personal capacities. You are free to disagree with us in exercising your political freedoms and we are not making any claim that following our recommendations is righteous and opposing them is sinful – that is up to Allah to judge.

We, the undersigned Muslims leaders, activists, scholars and academics from across the UK, call upon the Muslim community to vote in the upcoming general elections and to oust the incumbent and prospective genocide supporters.

The general elections represent a pivotal moment for the Muslim community. With mainstream political parties increasingly implicated in policies and actions that many perceive as supporting genocide and human rights abuses, it is crucial for Muslims to exercise their democratic power and vote.

Muslims hold significant influence, and our collective voice can bring about meaningful change. By voting, we can ensure that our concerns are heard and addressed. It is strongly advised for every eligible voter to participate in this democratic process.

The Muslim Vote, an organisation dedicated to empowering the Muslim community through political engagement and with widespread Muslim civil society support, has endorsed candidates who stand for justice, equality, and the protection of human rights. We urge you to check the list of candidates endorsed by The Muslim Vote and support them with your vote.

In constituencies where there are multiple candidates, we encourage the community to unite behind the single Muslim Vote candidate who best represents our values and interests, maximising our impact and ensuring our voice is strong and cohesive. Even if you may personally disagree – go with the jama’ah to maintain unity and send a stronger message.

Together, we can make a difference. Let us unite and vote for a future that respects and upholds the rights and dignity of all people.
