The Learned Hypocrite

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Abu Hamid Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Ghazali (r.a.) wrote, in Ihya’ ‘Ulum as-Din, “Amir al-Mu’minin ‘Utsman ibn ‘Affan (r.a.) said, ‘I fear most for this nation, the learned hypocrite.’ 

People asked him, ‘How can a hypocrite be learned?’ 

‘Utsman (r.a.) replied, ‘He has verbal knowledge, but his mind and his actions are ignorant.’”
