JOHOR BARU: Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar seems to taken a thinly-veiled jab against politicians for their relentless fighting to be in power.

His Majesty uploaded an image of Prophet Muhammad’s words from Imam al-Bukhari Hadith on Facebook here on Friday (Aug 6).

The Hadith reads: “Sesungguhnya kalian akan bersungguh-sungguh menginginkan jawatan, sedangkan jawatan itu akan menjadi sesalan pada hari Kiamat (jika tidak dijalankan dengan baik).”
