Good Scholars & Bad Scholars

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Ahmad al-Faruqi ibn ‘Abd al-Ahad as-Sirhindi (q.s.) wrote, in al-Maktubat, “A good scholar is the best of mankind.  The bad scholar is the worst of mankind.  Men’s happiness and disaster depend upon scholars.  A great man saw Shaythan sitting unoccupied and asked why he was unoccupied.

Shaythan replied, ‘The heretical scholars of the present age are occupied in doing my work.  They do not leave any work for me to lead people astray.’”
