Dr.Yusuf al-Qaradawi supports democracy as he believes that democracy is the best alternative to dictatorship and tyranny. The following is a summary of opinion Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradhawi  of democracy is accompanied by comments against him.

Dr.Yusuf al-Qaradawi said: "Surely the liberal democracy the best in my opinion is the political side, which is reflected in the representation of life enforcement, in which people can choose their representatives who will portray the legislative power in parliament, and in one chamber or two chambers.
This election can only be reached through free elections and public, and who are eligible are receiving the most votes from the candidates who are affiliated to political parties or non-party.

Pluralism, Ideology That Indisputable

Islam, the religion-as blessed by God, not constantly face numerous challenges. A serious challenge is the challenge in the field of religious thought, both internal and external.
We already understand, fanaticism, blind imitation, heresy, and superstition (kesyirikan) has become an internal challenge to Islam. However, the introduction of pluralism [1] into the discourse of Islamic thought has become one of the external challenges that are very dangerous because they try to undermine the construction of monotheism in Islam.
Tawhid = Mission  of the Prophet
Readers who glorified Allah, Allah Ta'ala sent Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam to remove humans from kesyirikan towards unity as He sent the prophets and apostles before him. Allah ta'ala says,
ولقد بعثنا في كل أمة رسولا أن اعبدوا الله واجتنبوا الطاغوت (36)
"And verily We sent a messenger to every nation (proclaiming):" Worship Allah (alone), and shun all forms of worship of Evil. "(An Nahl: 36).
