Allah Loves Sincerity Towards The Rulers. Do You?

Allah Loves Sincerity Towards The Rulers. Do You?

This is a question for all those who rebel—either physically or verbally against the Muslim rulers. Allah loves sincerity towards the rulers; why don’t you?!

Shaykh Abdur Razzaq Al Badr said:

The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَرْضَى لَكُمْ ثَلََثًا وَيَسْخَطُ لَكُمْ ثَلََثًا ؛ يَرْضَى لَكُمْ أَنْ تَعْبُدُوهُ وَلََ تُشْرِكُوا بِهِ شَيْئًا ، وَأَنْ تَعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعً ا وَلََ
تَفَرَّقُوا ، وَأَنْ تُنَاصِحُوا مَنْ وَلََّهُ اللَّهُ أَمْرَكُمْ

Allah is pleased with three things for you and He is angry with three things for you. He is pleased that you worship Him, not associating anything with Him, that you all hold fast to the rope of Allah all together and not be divided and that you give good counsel to those that Allah has put in authority over you. (Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 442)

And he said:

ثَلََثٌ لََ يُغَ ل يعني لَ يحقد عَلَيْهِنَّ قَلْبُ مُسْلِ م : إِخْلََصُ الْعَمَلِ لِلَّهِ، وَمُنَاصَحَةُ وُلََةِ الَْْمْرِ، وَلُزُومُ الْجَمَاعَةِ

There are three things because of which hatred does not enter the heart of a Muslim: Sincerity in doing an action for the sake of Allah; being sincere towards the rulers of the Muslims; and adhering to the Jama'ah (Sunan Ibn Majah 235).

This means you will not find hate in the heart of the Muslim for these three affairs. This is the statement of the Messenger peace be upon him. You will not find hatred in the heart of the Muslim for these three matters. Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyyah —may Allah have mercy upon him—mentioned these two hadith and he said: “If Allah is pleased with this for us then how can the heart of a Muslim hate it?”

Whoever does not care for this principle or abandons this principle then surely he will find in himself dislike for many narrations connected to this subject, and perhaps he will hate these hadiths. Rather, some of the people say outright, “Why do we have such hadiths?”
