عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ اَبِيهِؑ قَالَ اِنَّ لِلهِ عِلْماً خَاصّاً وَ عِلْماً عَامّاً فَاَمَّا الْعِلْمُ الْخَاصُّ فَالْعِلْمُ الَّذِي لَمْ يُطْلِعْ عَلَيْهِ مَلَائِكَتَهُ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ وَ اَنْبِيَاءَهُ الْمُرْسَلِينَ وَ اَمَّا عِلْمُهُ الْعَامُّ فَاِنَّهُ عِلْمُهُ الَّذِي اَطْلَعَ عَلَيْهِ مَلَائِكَتَهُ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ وَ اَنْبِيَاءَهُ الْمُرْسَلِينَ وَ قَدْ وَقَعَ اِلَيْنَا مِنْ رَسُولِ اللهِ ص

Imam Jafar al-Sadeq (peace be upon him) narrates from his father (Imam al-Baqer a.s.) who said,

“Surely, for Allah there are two (types of) knowledge: special knowledge and general knowledge. As for the special knowledge, then it is the knowledge about which He has neither informed His proximate angels nor His sent messengers. But as for His general knowledge, then it is His knowledge which He has given to His proximate angels and His sent messengers; indeed, it (this knowledge) has come to us from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny).”
