We Ask Allaah For Righteous Leaders

Ahmad Ibn ‘Umar Ibn Abdullaah recited in one of his poems:

We sincerely ask Allaah for leaders who are His close allies;
For good in the deen and the dunya comes from good leaders.

People are united and joined in giving them the highest praise;
And with them, Allaah’s laws are established and maintained upon the transgressors;
And they are a benefit to us in places of difficulty and hardship;

Knowledge disappears, as the scholars disappear;
For they are the ones who support Allaah’s Deen in the vast earth;
So we ask Allaah to reward them commendably.

[Jaami’ Bayaan Al-‘Ilm, of Ibn ‘Abdil-Barr, 1/184
