Acceptance of oppression


SHAFAQNA – The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said: A person who satisfies an oppressive ruler in a way that is against God’s pleasure, has gone out of religion [1]. It is also narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: The one who accepts the rule of an oppressive ruler, who is not from God, has no religion [2]. In another narration, Imam Baqer (AS) and Imam Sadeq (AS) said: The one who obeys the order of an oppressive person who does not obey God, has no religion [3].
