Hadith on Sultan: Be patient with tyranny from your rulers

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever sees something from his ruler that he hates, let him be patient. Whoever secedes from the community by as much as a handspan and dies will have died a death of ignorance.
