Truth and Falsehood

Jama Tirmidhi quotes the Messenger of Allah (saws) on the authority of Hadrat Abu Harairah:

"When your rulers are pious and upright and when the rich (of your community) are generous and when matters pertaining to you are conducted with consultation (that is through the practice of Shura then it is better for you to be on the earth rather than under the earth.

But when your rulers are wicked (unjust and corrupt) and when the rich amongst you are greedy and misers, and when your affairs are controlled by women (that is, the final decision rests with them), then it will be better for you to be under the earth rather than on the earth."

Hadrat Abu Hurairah quotes the Messenger of Allah (saws) as saying:

"When my Umma begins to attach importance and greatness to this world, then their hearts will be empty of the love and significance of Islam. And when they cease to fulfill their duty of 'enjoining the good and forbidding the evil' then they will be deprived of the blessings of Wahi and when they get accustomed to hurling abuses at each other, they will be disgraced before Allah."
