Question: What do I have to do if I mistakenly quote Islam on something?
Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
Thank you for your important question.
One may not obey the Muslim ruler concerning something sinful. (Nihayat al-Muhtaj, Ramli)
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, ‘A Muslim must hear and obey [the ruler] whether he likes it or not, as long as he is not commanded to do a sin. If he is commanded to do a sin, then there is no hearing and no obeying.’ (Bukhari and Muslim)
