The ruling upon the ones who learns knowledge but does not act.

What is the shareeah ruling upon the person who recites the Quraan and learns knowledge but he does not act upon these two things?

This person is just as Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’aala states:

The likeness of those who were entrusted with (the obligation of the) Tawraah but who subsequently failed in those (obligations) is as the likeness of a donkey who carries huge burdens of books. Surah al Jumuah (62) aayah 5

And just as He subhaanahu wa ta’aala stated:

O you who believe! Indeed there are many of the (Jewish) rabbis and (Christian) monks who devour the wealth of mankind in falsehood and hinder (them) from the way of Allaah. Surah at Tawbah (9) aayah 34

And just as He ta’aala stated:

And recite (O Muhammad) to them the story of him to whom We gave our Aayaat, but he threw them away so Shaytaan followed him up and he became of those who went astray. And had We willed, We would surely have elevated him therewith but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his description is the description of a dog; if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out – or if you leave him alone, he still lolls his tongue out. Such is the description of the people who reject our Ayaat. Surah Al A’raaf (7) aayah 175 to 176

So this person is considered one of the scholars of evil, and Allaah’s help is sought.
