Who is a true expert in Islamic jurisprudence?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Baqer (AS) said: One expert in Islamic jurisprudence (Faqih) is more difficult for Satan to bear than 1000 devout persons. A man asked Imam Baqer (AS) a question and Imam answered him, that man turned to Imam (AS) and said: The experts in jurisprudence do not say this. Imam (AS) told that man: Have you ever seen a Faqih? Faqih is the one who disregards this world and is inclined to hereafter, and follows the traditions of the Prophet (PBUH) [1].
