In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Imaam Ibnul Qayyim [rahimahullaah] said: The evil scholars sit at the doors of paradise and call the people to it with their statements, whilst calling to the hell fire with their actions. So whenever their statements say to the people “come [i.e. to paradise]”, their actions say, “Do not listen to them”. So, they are guides in one way [i.e. by statement], but highway robbers in reality [i.e. their deeds repel people from the straight path just as highway robbers prevent the people from their journey]. [Al-Fawaa-id page: 60]
