Sh. ‘Abdulrahman al-Kawakibi d. 1320H/1902CE (may Allah have mercy on him) writes in his book (Tabai’ al-Istibdad wa-Masari’ al-Isti’bad):

The commoners are the strength of the oppressor and his force. Through them and upon them he runs rampant. He imprisons them, so they cheer for his might; He takes their wealth unjustly, so they praise him for having spared their lives; He insults them, so they admire his high rank; He tempts some of them against others, so they find pride in his policies; When he spends their money wastefully, they say: How Generous!; And if he kills from them but does not maim, they consider him Merciful; He drags them to the dangers of death, and they obey him out of fear that they would be reprimanded; If a few of those with dignity resented him, he fights them as if they were transgressors.

What results is that these commoners slaughter themselves with their own hands because of this fear which develops from their ignorance and foolishness. If that ignorance was to alleviate, and the mind was to become enlightened, then that fear would go away and the people would habitually no longer follow except that which would bring them benefit, as the saying goes: A wise person only serves himself. At that time, the oppressor would have to either retire or straighten [himself].

Arabic Narration:

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو قَالَ
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يُقَالُ لِصَاحِبِ الْقُرْآنِ اقْرَأْ وَارْتَقِ وَرَتِّلْ كَمَا كُنْتَ تُرَتِّلُ فِي الدُّنْيَا فَإِنَّ مَنْزِلَكَ عِنْدَ آخِرِ آيَةٍ تَقْرَؤُهَا

قال الشيخ خالد راشد:ـ
أراد إخوة يوسف الصديق أن يقتلوه …  فلم يمت!ـ
ثم أرادوا أن يلتقطه بعض المارة فيمحى أثره … فارتفع شأنه!ـ
ثم بيع ليكون مملوكا … فأصبح ملكا!ـ
ثم أرادوا أن يمحو محبته من قلب أبيه … فازدادت!ـ
فلا تقلق من تدابير البشر … فإرادة الله فوق إرادة البشر.ـ

أنا أعبد الله كما أمرني وهو يرزقني كما وعدني

                             Be Thankful - Al Sirat

Prophet Muhammed (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Look at those who are less fortunate than you and do not look at those whom you think are superior to you, for that is more liable to keep you from belittling the favors of Allah upon you (narrated by Imam Muslim).

روى الإمام مسلم: عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ انْظُرُوا إِلَى مَنْ أَسْفَلَ مِنْكُمْ وَلَا تَنْظُرُوا إِلَى مَنْ هُوَ فَوْقَكُمْ فَهُوَ أَجْدَرُ أَنْ لَا تَزْدَرُوا نِعْمَةَ اللَّهِ
