وقود النار يوم القيامة كل بخيل بماله على الفقراء وكل عالم باع الدين بالدنيا

The fuel of Hell in the day of judgment is every person who is ungenerous with the poor and every religious scholar who sold his religion for worldly pleasure.

In dictatorial regimes the dictator looks for justification for his evil actions. One of the best ways to do this is to employ or pay religious scholars to release a fatwa (religious decree) tailored specifically to justify those evil actions. In return, the scholars get money, secure job, and protection from the dictator’s police. The Imam tells us that those religious scholars will be in Hell.
