Consultation as one of the social and political concepts of the Qur'an and of the prophetic traditions has strengthened the religious democracy. On the other hand, it is also an intrinsic component of the theory of deliberative democracy.

At the same time, the concept of consultation, although common in both theories, exists on the ontological, epistemological, and anthropological grounds, and there are substantial differences between them that can be attributed to being monotheistic and humanistic.
