In Tambeehul Ghafileen- Admonition for the neglectful- (translated by Mufti Afzal Hoosen Elias Rahmatullahi Alaihi) Part 3 page 34:

What a beautiful statement made by someone: “When the Ulama accumalate Halaal wealth, then the masses will begin eating from doubtful wealth. And when the Ulama start accumulating doubtful wealth, then the masses indulge in Haraam wealth. And, Allah Ta’laa forbid, when the Ulama begin eating from Haraam wealth, then the masses will begin inclining towards Kufr.”

When the Ulama begin behaving like the wealthy and start accumulating and amassing wealth, then the masses think to themselves, that if the Ulama are running after wealth, then why should they remain behind. Then they become more immersed in amassing wealth, and they have no knowledge by to differentiate between Halaal and doubtful. When the Ulama take to amassing doubtful wealth, then the masses go one step further and they do not distinguish between Haraam and doubtful. And then when the Ulama become involved in Haraam wealth, (May Allah Ta’ala forbid!) then the masses, thinking this to be Halaal, otherwise the Aalim will not do it, eventually end up in kufr, because to understand Haraam to be Halaal is Kufr.

May Allah Ta’ala save us all!
