A416 : Oppression is, indeed, the most hateful
practice a human being may follow. It is degrading to the one who
commits it and to the one at the receiving end of it. It is for this
reason that Islam stresses in a variety of methods the importance of
justice. The Prophet lists seven groups of people who will have Allah's
shelter on the day of judgement. The first of these is a 'just ruler'.
With such emphasis, it is not surprising that Islamic history has known
a long chain of fair-minded rulers.
