Degeneration among Politicians

 

In the End Times there will be cruel rulers, wicked ministers, treacherous judges, and lying hodjas. If anyone goes to them, let him not be allied to them, help them, or show them the way.
(Risalat al-Khuruj al-Mahdi, p. 182)

 

 

Some chiefs and rulers of states will take [unjustly] what is not given to you [as the poor ones entitled to take] from the state treasure. (Mukhtasar Tazkirah al-Qurtubi, p. 380, no. 697)

 

 

Soon there will appear some chiefs who will confiscate your food and soothe you with lies. They will work, yet what they do will be evil. Their worst attribute is that they will not be pleased with you until you consider their evil as good and confirm their lies. (al-Tabarani)

 

 

One by one, the principles of Islam will be violated and some statesmen will misguide people ... (al-Hakim, Mustadrak)

 

One important feature of this time is the emergence of ruthless, cruel leaders who lead their peoples to disaster. The twentieth century was full of such people. These individuals, who adopted ideologies far removed from the moral values of religion, became notorious for the cruelties they inflicted and for the sufferings they caused due to war and other conflicts.

Chairman Mao had thousands of citizens killed solely for opposing him, and was responsible for the deaths of millions during his regime. Under the influence of fascist ideology, Mussolini led his people to a terrible disaster by dragging his country into World War II. Mobutu has gone down in history as one of Africa's most ruthless dictators.
