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.
