‘And to Allah belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth.’

Right-wing traditionalist groups that want the UK to leave the European Union to regain “sovereignty” forget that traditionally in Britain we have put God ahead of country (even if only in theory). They have forgotten that the only sovereignty that really matters is God’s.

According to Islam, sovereignty over the entire universe belongs to Allah and Allah alone. The Qur’an explicitly describes God as Al-Malik meaning sovereign, and Al-Malik-ul-Mulk the eternal possessor of sovereignty. Whatever is between the land and sky belongs to and is under the authority of Allah alone.

And to Allah belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth.

(24: 42)
