Muslims have a duty to be fully active in improving society.
The South African Muslim Network says that one way of doing this, is by participating in the elections.
Dr Faisal Suliman says this can be done through registering to vote to participate in the municipal polls, or by joining a political party, or standing as an independent candidate.
He says that Muslims should not be discouraged by the things affecting service delivery.
Suliman contends that voter inaction or apathy allows for more corruption to creep in.
He also lamented the failures of some Muslim leaders and scholars to motivate the public to participate in elections or be more active for the improvement in society.
Suliman says that Muslims should not separate their religion from their duty to mankind.
He maintains that municipal or by-elections are at the foreground of ensuring that public has access to their basic needs.
