عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مَنْصُورٍ قَالَ:- سَاَلْتُ عَبْدًا صَالِحًا عَنْ قَوْلِ اللهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ- قُلْ اِنَّما حَرَّمَ رَبِّيَ الْفَواحِشَ‏ ما ظَهَرَ مِنْها وَ ما بَطَنَ‏ قَالَ فَقَالَ‏ اِنَ‏ الْقُرْآنَ‏ لَهُ‏ ظَهْرٌ وَ بَطْنٌ‏ فَجَمِيعُ‏ مَا حَرَّمَ اللهُ فِي الْقُرْآنِ هُوَ الظَّاهِرُ وَ الْبَاطِنُ مِنْ ذَلِكَ اَئِمَّةُ الْجَوْرِ- وَ جَمِيعُ مَا اَحَلَّ اللهُ تَعَالَى فِي الْكِتَابِ هُوَ الظَّاهِرُ وَ الْبَاطِنُ مِنْ ذَلِكَ اَئِمَّةُ الْحَقِّ.

Muhammad Ibn Mansoor reports, “I asked Abd Saleh (Imam Kazim a.s.) about the word of Allah – Mighty and Majestic be He – ‘Say: My Lord has only prohibited the indecencies from the manifest of them as well as the concealed ones’. He (peace be upon him) replied,

‘For the Quran, there is an apparent and a concealed. Then whatever Allah has prohibited in the Quran, it is the apparent and its concealed meaning implies the unjust Imams and whatever Allah the High has permitted in the Book it is the apparent while the concealed refers to the Imams of truth.”
