Description: Imam Ali (a.s.) said, ‘Even if falsehood was isolated from being mixed with the truth, it would not be indefinable by those who aspire it; and even if the truth was free from being disguised as falsehood, the tongues of its opponents would still be silenced; but it is often made by taking a little from one and a little from the other.’
Description: Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) said, ‘The heart can never ascertain that the truth is falsehood, nor can it ever ascertain that falsehood is the truth.’
الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): لا يَستَيقِنُ القلبُ أنَّ الحقَّ باطلٌ أبداً، ولا يَستَيقِنُ أنَّ الباطلَ حقٌّ أبداً .

Description: Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) said, ‘Allah has refused to present falsehood as a certain truth, and He has refused to present the truth to the heart of a believer as a certain falsehood; He has also refused to present falsehood to the heart of a disbeliever as a certain truth. And had he not done thus, the truth would never be distinguished from falsehood.’
الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): أبَي اللّهُ أنْ يُعَرِّفَ باطلاً حقّاً، أبَي اللّهُ أنْ يجْعَلَ الحقَّ في قلبِ المؤمنِ باطلاً لا شكَّ فيهِ، وأبَي اللّهُ أنْ يَجعَلَ الباطلَ في قلبِ الكافرِ المُخالِفِ حقّاً لا شَكَّ فيهِ، ولَو لَم يَجْعَلْ هذا هكذا ما عُرِفَ حقٌّ مِن باطلٍ .
