عن عائشة رضي الله عنها مرفوعاً: «اللهم من وَلِيَ من أمر أمتي شيئاً، فشَقَّ عليهم؛ فاشْقُقْ عليه».
[صحيح] - [رواه مسلم]
‘Ā'ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "O Allah, whoever was entrusted with authority over any affair of my nation and made it difficult for them, make it difficult for him."
Sahih/Authentic. - [Muslim]
This Hadīth is a stern warning to anyone in power over Muslims, regardless of his position being major or minor, and he makes matters difficult for them. The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) supplicated against such a person, asking Allah to make things difficult for him as a fair retribution.
