The Injustice of Ḥizbīs

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

Don’t wait around for a ḥizbī [a member of a deviant group or party] to be fair or just to a [Muslim] ruler; envy has consumed his heart against those who rule over Muslims.

At the same time, he clings fanatically to his group, his party or sect, justifying, on their behalf, their falsehoods. Partisanship renders one blind and deaf; makes truth [appear to be] falsehood and falsehood, truth; [makes] guidance [look like] misguidance and misguidance, guidance.

Partisanship, with [its] pledges of [partisan] allegiance, is never to be found along with the good, [proper] listening and obedience [due to Muslim rulers].
