Sa’id on Leadership: Advice to the Caliph to love Muslims as himself

Ibn Asakir reported: Sa’id ibn ‘Amir said to Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, “O commander of the faithful! Fear Allah regarding people, yet do not fear people regarding Allah. Love for the Muslims what you love for yourself and your household, and hate for them what you hate for yourself and your household.”

عن ابن عساكر قَالَ سَعِيدُ بْنُ عَامِرٍ لِعُمَرَ رضي الله عنه يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ اخْشَ اللَّهَ فِي النَّاسِ وَلا تَخْشَ النَّاسَ فِي اللَّهِ وَأَحِبَّ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ مَا تُحِبُّ لِنَفْسِكَ وَأَهْلِ بَيْتِكَ وَاكْرَهْ لَهُمْ مَا تَكْرَهُ لِنَفْسِكَ وَأَهْلِ بَيْتِكَ
