Warning against Oppressive Leadership
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Sulthan Swalah ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub (r.a.) said, to the young Muslims of his time, “An oppressive leader is, in actuality, a weak leader. He attempts to defeat his rivals with tyranny and violence or by creating greed for wealth. You are the future; we are the past. The enemy, by terminating the coruscate past from your minds, is trying to stuff it with their own blackening ideology and welfare so that the future of Islam is hazy. Recognise your importance. The enemy is trying to suspend you because you are bloodcurdling.” That warning went unheeded.
