Bismillah he was Salatu was salam, O Allah Rasool Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were bad. There are many slogans that people chant. And one such slogan is the slogan of justice, and it's a great slogan, and put up a banner or a movement for justice, and everyone will rally because we all want justice. Nobody wants to live under the crutch of tyranny and oppression. But here's the question, and here's the challenge.

And even the Sahaba though he was not a companion himself, would present the cases to him.

And whatever measures needs to be instituted against someone else must be instituted against myself, and do not be like those who distort the tax to
