The property of the oppressor will be destroyed

Question

Could you mention the reference for this please?

دار الظالم خراب ولو بعد حين

The property of the oppressor will be destroyed, even if it is after some time

 

Answer

‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) states that he has not come across any source/basis for this, however, the following Verse supports the meaning: “These are their homes that lie in ruins because of their oppression” [Surah Naml, Verse: 52)

(Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 474. Also see: Kashful Khafa: 1280)

 

The meaning is therefore correct, however, These words should not be quoted as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam),

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
