Obeying the Rulers

Ali ibn Abi Talib may Allah be pleased with him said:

قال علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه : حقٌّ على الإمام أن يحكم بما أنزل الله ويؤدي الأمانة ، فإذا فعل ذلك فحق على الرعية أن يسمعوا ويطيعوا

“It’s an obligation on the ruler to rule with the Shari’ah of Allah and to fulfil his Amana. IF he does so, then it becomes a duty for the people to listen and obey.”

 

[“Abu al-Qaasim al Ba’awi, Ma’alim at-Tanzeel 2/240”]
