With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 38 (Saad)
Verse 26 O David! We did indeed make thee a vicegerent on earth: so judge thou between men in truth (and justice): Nor follow thou the lusts (of thy heart), for they will mislead thee from the Path of Allah: for those who wander astray from the Path of Allah, is a Penalty Grievous, for that they forget the Day of Account.
Prophet Dawood (A. S)was the ruler of a powerful kingdom , yet when he made a wrong decision …verse 24 ….”and David gathered that We had tried him: he asked forgiveness of his Lord, fell down, bowing (in prostration), and turned (to Allah in repentance)”
he displayed transparency and extreme humility by taking immediate responsibility for his actions.He did not make excuses or look for the services of spin doctors to justify his decision – today’s leaders are more concerned about holding on to power at the expense of truth and justice.
