Beware of learned man

Beware of learned man

POSTED by Rashid, August 21, 2008  

  • “If you see a learned man frequent the houses of rulers,
  • beware of him because he is a thief.” 

“If you see a learned man, who has many friends

  • you may be sure he is charlatan and a faker,
  • because if he would speak the truth,
  • those friends would hate him.” 

Umar Ibn Al-Khattab said:

“If you see the learned man cherishing this world,

  • then entrust not your religion into his hands
  • because everyone is captivated by what he loves.”
