Beware Falling into Oppression

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Protect yourself from falling into oppression, however small it might seem to you, for its results are heavy and evil, and its outcomes, painful, whether you’re:

  • a father [falling into it] with your children;
  • a manager, with your employees;
  • a husband, with your wife;
  • a neighbor, with your neighbors;
  • or with your workman or maid.

Shuraiḥ, the judge, may Allāh have mercy on him, would say:

Those who’ve oppressed [others] will come to know the rights of those they infringed upon. Indeed, oppressors are most definitely awaiting punishment, [while] the oppressed await triumph and reward.
