The reasons for downfall of governments

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: There are four reasons which lead to downfall of governments.

  1. Ignoring and forgetting the important and key issues.
  2. Engaging and paying attention to less important and second rate issues.
  3. Appointing disreputable and dishonourable persons (in government).
  4. Disregarding and ignoring honourable people (to serve in government) [1].
