The spirit of “Legitimate Democracy” stems from Shariah and that’s where it lives!
Annotation: In the article, the word “legitimate,” was used with the meanings “under the shariah, within the scope of shariah, not contrary to the shariah”.
The spirit of constitutionalism (in current expression and in the way that gives the same meaning without a sultan and more perfectly “democracy”) stems from shariah, and that’s where it lives.” (Debates, Said Nursi)
We felt the need to write out this very important article content because some people with radical thoughts and even some who have the accumulation of Epistles of Light try to portray democracy as if it is something very bad or a blasphemy regime and do this based on Master Bediuzzaman and Epistles of Light. It is said that “constitutionalism and democracy are different things and Bediuzzaman did not advocate democracy. It is only constitutionalism that complies with the Shariah. ”
