Authubillaahi min ash-Shaytaani rajeem

Bismillaahi ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem, as-Salaatu was-Salaam ‘ala Rasulullaah

Allaah aza wa jal says:

يا أيها الذين آمنوا إن كثيرا من الأحبار والرهبان ليأكلون أموال الناس بالباطل ويصدون عن سبيل الله

O you who have believed, indeed many (katheer) of the scholars and the monks devour the wealth of people unjustly and avert from the way of Allaah…

Collected in the Saheehayn, from Abu Sa’id al-Khudri who said Allaah’s Messenger (s) said:

لَتَتْبَعُنَّ سَنَنَ مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمْ شِبْرًا شِبْرًا وَذِرَاعًا بِذِرَاعٍ، حَتَّى لَوْ دَخَلُوا جُحْرَ ضَبٍّ تَبِعْتُمُوهُمْ

“You will follow the ways of those who were before you, span by span and cubit by cubit so much so that even if they entered a hole of a lizard, you would follow them.”
