The prominent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Iqbal Nadvi, Director and Imam of Al-Falah Islamic Center,Oakville, Ontario, Canada, states: “The Qur’an in some verses addresses a political term, which means that the government in Islamic system is supposed to be run by those who are committed to Islam but this walaya (protection) is not to be sought from other than Muslims. In our understanding, the United Nations work for issues of common ground among issues and not to cause trouble or harm to Islamic faith. In this way, we see no harm in dealing with them. It is similar to what Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) did in the treaty of Fudool where he cooperated with members who were not Muslims to protect the poor and the oppressed. “
