Taken From Ahlu Sunnah WalJamaah.ComHow To Advise TheMuslim Rulers & How Not To Advise TheMuslim Rulers AccordingTo The Quran & SunnahBy Abdul Kareem IbnOzzie
 Advising the Muslim Rulers is one of the most important matters of the religion it is so important in Islam that the prophet Mohammedsaid,
“Three things that the heart of a Muslim will not despise (does not have any hatred in his heart for)
makingthe action sincerely for Allah, advising the leaders of the Muslims, and holding fast to their jamaah.” Ibn Maajah, Authenticated by Shaykh al-Albaanee.
  Advising the Muslim Rulers can lead to great benefits for the rulerhimself and the ummah as a whole when done properly.However if advising the ruler is not done according to the Quran andSunnah it can also lead to great harm and oppression from the rulersupon the ummah in general and if there is no caliph, the oppression will be direct to the ruler’s subjects of his state.Today we live in a time where many of the laymen have entered intothe area of sincerely advising the Muslim rulers of today. This is greatand should lead to a great overall benefit but instead it has lead tooppression from the Muslim rulers.The reason why this has happened is because many of those whoadvice the Muslim rulers of today are laymen who have are takfire sothey do not or those influenced by the takfire dawah. So theirintention is for the sake of Allah when advising the ruler and they  wish to bring about good through their actions however they areignorant of the correct methodology in advising the Muslim ruler.Therefore they often advise the ruler in a way that contradicts theshariah and often leads to evil and rarely leads to any benefit.
Shaykh Ahmad Bazmool
clarified the different ways of advisingthe rulers in his book titled ‘As-Sunnah in that which is connected tothe one in charge of the affairs.’ Al-Ma'loom min Waajib il-'Ilaaqah bain al-Haakim wal-Mahkoom, (pp.22-23).
 After the shaykhs points in between the brackets are some extrapoints or info from ME (ABDUL KAREEM IBN OZZIE, NOT THESHAYKH), to make it easier to understand the shaykhs adviceinshallah.The shaykh said:1.
 Advising the leader in a secret/private manner that's between the leader and the one advising.
 As for the first manner of giving advice to the leader, it is when it isdone privately. This is a foundation from the foundations of themethodology of the salaf, which the people of desire and innovationhave opposed like the Khawarij and others. This is based upon that which is on the authority of I'yaad (bin Ghanam) that
the Prophet said:"Whoever wants to advise a sultan (leader/ruler) with amatter, do not do it outwardly but let him take him by thehand and go into seclusion with him. If he accepts it fromhim then that (is good) and if not then he (the adviser) has fulfilled that which was upon him (to do)." Musnad of  Ahmad, as-Sunnah of Ibn Abee Aa'sim, authenticated byal-Albaanee.
(In the above hadeeth the prophet said
 If he (the ruler) acceptsit (the advice) from him (the ruler’s subject) then that (isgood) and if not then he (the adviser) has fulfilled that which was upon him (to do)” 
Therefore if a person gives a Muslim ruler advice and he does notaccept his advice leave him alone, this is because if he rejects thesincere advice then ultimately the ruler is responsible for hisrulership and Allah will hold him accountable for it.
