وَ قَالَ اَبُو الْحَسَنِ الْمَاضِي ع‏ قُلِ‏ الْحَقَ‏ وَ اِنْ‏ كَانَ‏ فِيهِ‏ هَلَاكُكَ‏ فَاِنَّ فِيهِ نَجَاتَكَ وَ دَعِ الْبَاطِلَ وَ اِنْ كَانَ فِيهِ نَجَاتُكَ فَاِنَّ فِيهِ هَلَاكَك‏

Abu al-Hasan al-Maazi (Imam Kazem a.s.) says,

“Speak the truth even if you perish in it because surely in it is your salvation and abandon falsehood even if there’s apparent salvation for you in it because in reality, you will perish in it.”
