Democracy, as a system of governance, is an integral part of the values, ideas and ideals of the West. Therefore, democracy is part and parcel of the religion/aqeedah (creed) of the disbelievers in the West (and those who have adopted such system). Any muslim who believes in such aqeedah (fully or partially) has committed riddah (apostasy). The Prophet (ﷺ) said:
 
مَنْ تَشَبَّهَ بِقَوْمٍ, فَهُوَ مِنْهُمْ
 
“He who imitates any people (in their actions) is considered to be one of them.” [Related by Abu Dawud and Ibn Hibban graded it as Sahih.]
 
Allah says:
 
إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الْإِسْلَامُ
 
Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. 3:19
 
وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الْإِسْلَامِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
 
And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. 3:85
 
وَمَن يَرْتَدِدْ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِ فَيَمُتْ وَهُوَ كَافِرٌ فَأُولَٰئِكَ حَبِطَتْ أَعْمَالُهُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ ۖ وَأُولَٰئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ ۖ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ
 
And whoever of you reverts from his religion [to disbelief] and dies while he is a disbeliever – for those, their deeds have become worthless in this world and the Hereafter, and those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide therein eternally. 2:217
 
وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّن ذُكِّرَ بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِ ثُمَّ أَعْرَضَ عَنْهَا ۚ إِنَّا مِنَ الْمُجْرِمِينَ مُنتَقِمُونَ
 
And who does greater evil than he who is reminded of the signs of His Lord, then turns away from them? We shall take vengeance upon the criminals. (32:22)
