Ibn al-Qayyim (رحمه الله) said:[1]

The evil scholars sit at the gate of Paradise calling people to it through their speech whilst calling to Hellfire through their actions.

Every time their utterances say to the people, ‘Come,’ their actions say, ‘Don’t listen to them’. If what they had been calling to was the truth, they themselves would have been the first to respond to it (in their actions).

In their appearance, they appear to be guides but in reality, they are highway robbers.

We ask Allāh for protection and safety and to make our knowledge to be for us and not against us, Āmīn.
