[Machine] I heard Abu Dharr saying, "I had a private conversation with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ from night until the morning. I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, give me an order.' He said, 'Verily, it is a trust, a disgrace, and a regret on the Day of Judgment, except for the one who takes it as his right and fulfills the responsibility entrusted to him.'"  

أحمد:٢١٥١٣حَدَّثَنَا حَسَنٌ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ لَهِيعَةَ حَدَّثَنَا الْحَارِثُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ ابْنَ حُجَيْرَةَ الشَّيْخَ يَقُولُ أَخْبَرَنِي مَنْ

سَمِعَ أَبَا ذَرٍّ يَقُولُ نَاجَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللهِ ﷺ لَيْلَةً إِلَى الصُّبْحِ فَقُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ أَمِّرْنِي فَقَالَ إِنَّهَا أَمَانَةٌ وَخِزْيٌ وَنَدَامَةٌ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِلَّا مَنْ أَخَذَهَا بِحَقِّهَا وَأَدَّى الَّذِي عَلَيْهِ فِيهَا

I said to the Prophet ﷺ: Messenger of Allah, will you not appoint me to a public office? He stroked my shoulder with his hand and said: Abu Dharr, thou art weak and authority is a trust. and on the Day of judgment it is a cause of humiliation and repentance except for one who fulfils its obligations and (properly) discharges the duties attendant thereon.

قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَلاَ تَسْتَعْمِلُنِي قَالَ فَضَرَبَ بِيَدِهِ عَلَى مَنْكِبِي ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا أَبَا ذَرٍّ إِنَّكَ ضَعِيفٌ وَإِنَّهَا أَمَانَةٌ وَإِنَّهَا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ خِزْىٌ وَنَدَامَةٌ إِلاَّ مَنْ أَخَذَهَا بِحَقِّهَا وَأَدَّى الَّذِي عَلَيْهِ فِيهَا
