Dhamrah narrates that ‘Umar ibn ‘Abdil-’Azeez wrote to some of his workers:

As for what follows then…

If your authority over the people allows you to oppress them, then remember the authority of Allaah over you, and that what befalls them [as a result of your oppression] will [come to] pass, and what will befall you [as a result of you oppressing them] will remain.
