There are many lessons to learn and pray about from this story. First and foremost, we must pray for our leaders, because when God’s judgment comes, even the innocent may not escape the outcome. Secondly, children of God must always know whether any assignment they are given is of God or of the devil, and they should ask God for wisdom to go about it. Islam also admonishes all that: ‘’Allah tells the believers that governance is a trust which everyone who chooses to accept would be questioned about. To accept the responsibility to govern therefore is like accepting to bear the burden of everyone else on one’s head so that when others are resting, you are working and while they are sleeping you are watching and if anything goes wrong you will be held accountable even when you were not directly culpable.’’(Muhammed Al-Ghazali) Governance is not restricted to political governance. It is exercised directly and indirectly in both the public and private sectors, the Church, and even family units, in which the husband is the governor, and the wife is the deputy-governor.
