Hadith No: 52
Narrated/Authority of Abdullah bin Amr bin Al Aas
that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said: 'Allah will not take away knowledge by removing it from people (from their hearts). Rather He will take away knowledge by taking away the scholars, then when there will be no scholars left, the people will take the ignorant as their leaders. They will be asked questions and they will issue verdicts without knowledge, thus they will go astray and will lead others astray.'" (Sahih)
