Imam Sadeq (peace be upon him) informs,

โ€œI read in the book of the father of Imams (Ali a.s.), โ€˜In the Book of Allah, there are two (kinds of) Imam: the Imam of guidance and the Imam of deviation. As for the Imams of guidance, they give preference to Allahโ€™s command prior to their own command and Allahโ€™s judgment prior to their judgment. But as for the Imams of deviation, then surely they give preference to their command before Allahโ€™s command and their judgment before Allahโ€™s judgment, following their carnal desires and opposing whatever is in the Book.โ€
