HADITH OF THE DAY: 'OBEDIENCE IS REQUIRED ONLY IN WHAT IS GOOD'
A military commander appointed by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once issued an improper order to his troops. When the soldiers asked the Prophet about how they should have reacted to the order, he said: "(There is) no obedience (required) for evil deeds. Obedience is required only in what is good."
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Hadith 363
