Be Mindful of Oppressing Others, Even If You Use Influential Personalities As a Shield To Get Away With Your Crime!
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
ان يزيد ابن حكيم يقول
ما هبت أحدا قط هيبتي لرجل ظلمته وانا اعلم انه لا ناصر له إلا اللّه و هو يقول لي: ‘حسبي اللّه، واللّه بيني و بينك
Yazeed Ibn Hakeem (rahimahullaah) used to say:
“I have never feared anyone, more than my fear of a man whom I oppressed and I know that he had no helper except Allaah, and he says to me, “Allaah is sufficient for me, and between me and you is Allaah (i.e. Allaah will judge between us).”
