How to combat oppressors?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) told Abu Dhar/Abu Zar (RA): O’ Abu Dhar, Indeed you became angry for the sake of Allah (SWT). Therefore, do not be hopeful of anyone that for their sake you get angry. And you feared them whilst you believed in your religion; so, relinquish the world which they feared you for its sake, and escape from these (type) of people for the sake of the religion which you feared for it. How these worshippers of the world need what you made them frightened of; and how you are free from what they forbid you of? Soon, you will find who will benefit [1].
