Addressing the cruel, blood thirsty tyrannical ruler, Hajjaaj Bin Yusuf, Hadhrat Hasan Basri (rahmatullah alayh) said:
“O enemy of Allah! We have seen whatever you have fabricated. O you who fans the flames of fisq and fujoor (evil and immorality)! O you devotee of sin and transgression! Of what use will all these (worldly luxuries) be for you? The inhabitants of the Heaven curse you. The wrath of the inhabitants of the earth has reached its limits tolerating your cruelty, satanism and oppression.
Verily, Allah has taken a pledge from the Ulama that they will proclaim the truth to the people, and will not conceal it.”
