Democracy and it's Islaamic Ruling

If someone asks you: “what is democracy?”

Say: it is when people govern themselves by themselves without a (revealed) Book or Sunnah.

If it is said to you: “What is its ruling?”

Say: It is major Shirk (polytheism). The proof for this is Allah’s saying:

“Verily, the rule belongs to none but Allah.” [Surah Yoosuf: 40]?
