The Ruler who does not rule justly will be in chains on the Day of Judgement

Hadith 19, No one who is placed in leadership over 10 or more, then does not act justly between them, except that on the Day of Judgement he is brought in shackles and chains (Hakim)

Commentary:

A: The hadith is general for anyone in a position of leadership, whether someone appointed as a leader with limited responsibility, or a governor, or the Imam of all the Muslims.

B: To be brought forward on the Day of Judgement in chains and shackles is to be brought forward in the same position as the disbelievers and hypocrites who are likewise chained and shackled on the Day that each will be accounted for their actions.

C: The meaning to act justly is to act according to the Quran and Sunnah, and correlates to the various verses in the Quran in Surah al-Maida where those who do not rule by what Allah (SWT) has revealed are described as sinful, oppressors or disbelievers, and the explanation of those verses is famous and can be found in the books of tafseer.

Fortress of the Muslim

Supplication when prostrating due to recitation of the Quran
سَجَدَ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِي خَلَقَهُ، وَشَقَّ سَمْعَهُ وَبَصَرَهُ، بِحَوْلِهِ وَقُوَّتِهِ، فَتَبَارَكَ اللهُ أَحسَنُ الْخَالِقِي

My face fell prostrate before He who created it and brought forth its faculties of hearing and seeing by His might and power. So Blessed is Allah, the best of creators.
