Abu Hurarirah reported the Apostle of Allaahﷺ as saying “A Muslim ruler is shield by which a battle is fought.”
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الصَّبَّاحِ الْبَزَّازُ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ أَبِي الزِّنَادِ، عَنْ أَبِي الزِّنَادِ، عَنِ الأَعْرَجِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏
"‏ إِنَّمَا الإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ بِهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
