The Obligation of Obeying the Rulers in That Which Is Lawful

Imām al-Nawawī

Decisive commentary from Imām Abū Zakariyyā Yaḥyá ibn Sharaf al-Nawawī concerning the Ḥadīth about obeying the Muslim rulers in that which is lawful. Certainly another thorn in the throats of the Takfīriyyīn, Qutbiyyīn, Irhābiyyīn!

“Istawá is Known, and how is unknown, to have faith in it is obligatory, and to question it is an innovation.”

Imām Mālik (d. AH 179)

Decisive commentary from Imām Abū Zakariyyā Yaḥyá  Ibn Sharaf al-Nawawī concerning the ḥadīth about obeying the Muslim rulers in that which is lawful.  Certainly another thorn in the throats of the Takfīriyyīn, Quṭbiyyīn, Irhābiyyīn!
