An Example of How the Salaf Feared Oppressing Others

Yazeed Ibn Hakeem (rahimahullaah) used to say: “I have never feared anyone, more than my fear of a man whom I oppressed and I know that he had no helper except Allaah, and he says to me, “Allaah is sufficient for me, and between me and you is Allaah (i.e. Allaah will judge between us).”
