The disease of this ummah and its doctor

The disease of this ummah and its doctor

It is reported that Sufyan Al-Thawri - Allaah have mercy on him - said, 

"Wealth is the disease of this ummah, and the scholar is the doctor of this ummah. So if the doctor brings the disease to himself, how will he cure the people?"

Ref.: Al-Dhahabi, Siyar A'lam Al-Nubala, Vol. 7, p 243.

While Jibril (Gabriel) was sitting with the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), he heard a sound above him. He lifted his head, and said: 
"This is a gate which has been opened in heaven today. It was never opened before.'' Then an angel descended through it and he said: 
"This is an angel who has come down to earth. He never came down before.'' He sent greetings and said: "Rejoice with two lights given to you. 
Such lights were not given to any Prophet before you. These (lights) are: Fatihah-til-Kitab (Surat Al-Fatihah), and the concluding Ayat of Surat Al-Baqarah. 
You will never recite a word from them without being given the blessings it contains." 
[Sahih Muslim]
