Hadith on Justice: The closest to Allah in the Hereafter are the leaders of justice

Abu Sa’eed reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, the most beloved of people to Allah on the Day of Resurrection and the nearest to Him will be the just leader. The most hated of people to Allah and the furthest from Him will be the tyrannical leader.
