authority comes in the hands of unfit persons


Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA): While the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, "When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?" Allah's Apostle (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) continued his talk, so some people said that Allah's Apostle (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Alllah's Apostle (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) had not heard it. When the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) finished his speech, he said, "Where is the questioner, who enquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?" The Bedouin said, "I am here, O Allah's Apostle." Then the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) said, "When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday)." The Bedouin said, "How will that be lost?" The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) said, "When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday.)"
