Advice for every ruler.

Harun rasheed requested a sermon from one of the pious  scholars. He said: O caliph, for you to accompany a person who makes you afraid of the hereafter is better than one who gives you safety here, only to have you face the fear on the last day.Knows that the person who reminds you of your responsibility to your flock is more sincere to you than one who comforts you with the knowledge that you are of the noble family of the prophet and you will be forgiven for your sins ( which is not true).Harun began to weep at these statements until those around him felt pity for him.
