Hadith Explanation

Visiting Rulers Hated by Allah

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Undoubtedly, Allah loves those rulers who keep the company of scholars (Ulama) and He hates those scholars who maintain ties with rulers. Because, when the scholars frequent the rulers then the scholars incline towards the world, whereas, when the rulers frequent the scholars then the rulers incline towards the Hereafter.” [Imam Dailami]

If you find the religious leadership in your area hobnobbing with the rulers and elite, taking pride in knowing them, socializing with them, or working for them, know what Allah’s ruling is regarding them.

Sayyidna Obadah bin Swamet said: “If a pious learned man loves the rulers, he commits hypocrisy, and if he loves the rich, he commits show.” [Ihya Ulum Id-Din]
