Friday Nasihah- Corrupt Rulers

Understanding the Prophet's Life
Corrupt Rulers
“Whoever among you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand (by taking action); if he cannot, then with his tongue (by speaking out); and if he cannot, then with his heart (by hating it and feeling that it is wrong), and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]
"You will come to be governed by the rulers who will indulge in good (ma'roof) as well as evil (munkar). So one who regarded their evils as such, he attained salvation, and also the one who raised his voice against their evils. But the one who approved of them and followed them was doomed."
"There was not a single Prophet among those who were sent before me who did not have apostles and companions and followed his sunnah and obeyed his commands. But afterwards other generations came whose words belied their deeds, and whose deeds were not in accordance with what they commanded others to do. Whoever struggles against the with his hand is a believer. Whoever struggles against them with his tongue is a believer. And whoever struggles against them with his heart is a believer. But when none of these things are done, then not a single mustard's seed weight of faith is present." [Muslim]
"By One in Whose Hand is my life, you must continue inviting people to virtue (ma'roof) and forbidding evil (munkar), otherwise it may be that Allah will send down on you His Punishment and then you will cry to Him for relief but He will not hear you!"

  1. Salam alaykom,

    Can you forward these hadiths to ALL the Arab/Muslim leaders pleeeease. Subhanallah, imagine all those ppl that will speak out against their is real scary tbh!

    Jazakillah for the reminds though, even a mere mother can benefit from this bc we have our children afterall that we "rule" over and we need to give them their due too. Also, shows that you need to speak out against justice, no matter what the consequences are!!!
