People who have important
positions are taxed heavily. Their responsibilities take away from their health
and peace. Very few people remain unaffected and unharmed from the stresses
that are related to having strenuous and demanding jobs.
"Don't seek to be the
Ameer (leader or governor)."
('My power and arguments [to
defend myself have gone horn me!) (Quran 69: 29)
Imagine that the world came
to you with everything. Where will it all go in the end? Without a doubt, all
of it will perish.
(And the Face of your Lord
full of Majesty and Honour will abide forever)
(Quran 55: 27)
A wise man warned his son:
"Do not seek to be the
head, for the head is constantly aching. "
In other words, do not
always aspire to be the leader or the one in charge. Bitter criticisms, curses,
and tough problems are the lot of the leader. A poet justly said:
"Half of the people are
enemies of The governor, so very few, only if he is just."
