Obeying the Amir

Question

Is this narration authentic?

تسمع وتطيع للأمير وإن ضرب ظهرك وأخذ مالك فاسمع وأطع

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Hudhayfah ibnul Yaman (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1847. Also see: Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3606)

 

Translation

You [should] listen and obey the leader, even if your back is struck and your wealth is seized, listen and obey.

 

Kindly contact a reputable Mufti/Darul Ifta for further clarification.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
