What Is This “Taghut” Word Recently Mentioned On Pakistani Television?

To delve deeper into Maulana Maududi’s interpretation, you can look into his works such as “Tafheem-ul-Quran” and other writings where he extensively discusses the concept.

A Modern Example of Taghut

A clear and undeniable example of Taghut, as some argue, is the United Nations (UN). This viewpoint suggests that the UN represents a system of authority that deviates from the principles set by Allah and His Messenger. Critics claim that by joining the UN, rulers of Muslim countries are submitting to a global authority that may conflict with Islamic values and laws.

Contextual Understanding

This perspective stems from the belief that any governance or entity seeking judgment outside the framework of Islamic law and promoting principles contrary to Islamic teachings can be considered Taghut. The concern is that international bodies like the UN can influence Muslim-majority nations to adopt policies or practices not aligned with Islamic principles, thus leading to the worship and obedience of Taghut.
