There will be rulers who oppress the people and tell lies…



سَيَكُونُ أُمَرَاءُ يَغْشَاهُمْ غَوَاشٍ ، أَوْ حَوَاشٍ ، مِنَ النَّاسِ ، يَظْلِمُونَ وَيَكْذِبُونَ ، فَمَنْ أَعَانَهُمْ عَلَى ظُلْمِهِمْ ، وَصَدَّقَهُمْ بِكَذِبِهِمْ ، فَلَيْسَ مِنِّي ، وَلَا أَنَا مِنْهُ ، وَمَنْ لَمْ يُصَدِّقْهُمْ بِكَذِبِهِمْ ، وَلَمْ يُعِنْهُمْ عَلَى ظُلْمِهِمْ ، فَأَنَا مِنْهُ ، وَهُوَ مِنِّي


Ibn Mas’ood (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (saw) as saying: “There will be rulers who oppress the people and tell lies, and they will be surrounded by low types of people. Anyone who calls upon them, testifies to their lies, and helps them in their oppression is not from me, nor am I from him. And anyone who neither calls upon them nor supports them in their oppression is from me, and I am from him.”

Ahmad, ibn Hibban, and Tirmidhi related something similar.
