Hadith #14 – Elitist Privilege

Hadith #14 Notes

Those most likely to get away with various forms of injustice (e.g., shortchanging others, deceiving others) are the elite or privileged in society. Privilege is natural and comes in many forms (race, tribe, gender, wealth, geography) and sometimes there’s nothing you can do about it. But when you yourself are in a place of privilege, you need to first recognize your privilege and then use it to help those who are disadvantaged.
