Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) and Authenticity of Traditions

He (a.s.) is reported to have said:

"Everything should be collated with the Book of Allah and the sunnah. Any tradition that does not agree with the Book of Allah is certainly an embellished lie." 49

He (a.s.) quotes the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) as saying.

"Every truth has a sign indicating it, and every right has a mark identifying it. So what agrees with the Book of Allah take it, but leave out whatever disagrees with the Book of Allah." 50


49. Ibid, p.69 and 98.

50. Ibid.

Adapted from the book: "Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.)"
