Brief Comments on Riyaadh al-Saaliheen #62

Who are the "Ulul-amr"?

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله said:

Ulul-amr (those in authority) consists of the scholars and the rulers. The scholars are in charge of clarifying for us the religion of Allaah, whereas the rulers are in charge of implementing the Sharee`ah of Allaah. To implement the Sharee`ah, the scholars are in need of the rulers and the rulers are in need of the scholars. It is upon the rulers to return back to the scholars so that they clarify the Sharee`ah of Allaah to them. And it is upon the scholars to correctly advice the rulers and that they remind them of Allaah and that they instruct the rulers till they apply the Sharee`ah of Allaah among the slaves of Allaah عز وجل.

[Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen (2/254)]
