Scholars of Falsehood

Scholars of Falsehood
by Imam Al-Ghazali

What I mean by the learned men of the world or the scholars of falsehood is that his object of learning is to live in ease and comforts and to get honour and prestige from the people. They are slaves to evil habits. The devil is powerful over the majority among them and various kinds of sins misguide them. Almost every one among them is engrossed in the luxuries of this world and its comforts and enjoyments.
For this reason, the majority of them consider good as bad and bad as good. They duped the people to believe that there is no other science than that of fiqh (jurisprudence) or munazara (debates). The Prophet MHMD peace and blessings of Allah upon him) had called them as most wicked among the people. Beware then of being deceived by the ambiguities of these teachers of falsehood.
Their evil influence upon religion is greater than that of Satan, because through their aid does he arrive at removing religion from the hearts of men. The Prophet MHMD peace and blessings of Allah upon him) said, “At the end of time there will be ignorant worshippers and corrupt learned men.” (Hakim).

You can identify them by many of their typical traits among them are:
