Pearl of Wisdom

with regards to Allah's verse in the Qur'an: Say, 'To Allah belongs the conclusive argument , said, 'Verily Allah, most High, will ask the servant on the Day of Resurrection, My servant! Did you know? If he then answers: ''Yes , Allah will tell him, Then why did you not act upon what you knew? But if he says, I was ignorant, He will tell him, Why did not you learn in order that you may act?! He will then be disarmed and that is the conclusive argument.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 2, p. 29, no. 10
