Pearl of Wisdom

to Abu al-'Abbas about the reciprocal invocation of Allah's curse, 'You cross your fingers with his fingers and say, ?O Allah! If so-and-so has disputed the truth and attested to a falsehood, then strike him with a bolt from the sky or some torment from You.' Then you exchange curses with him seventy times.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 514, no. 4

In reality the claim belongs to the prophets, the Imams and the truthful, and a man who makes a claim improperly is like the accursed Iblis. He lays claim to devoutness while in reality he contends with his Lord and opposes His command.

Whoever makes such claims reveals his lie, and the liar is not trustworthy; whoever claims what is not lawful for him has the gates of affliction opened for him. Anyone who makes a claim will doubtless be asked for clear proof, upon which he is shown to be bankrupt and disgraced. The truthful person is not asked the reason for his actions; as 'Ali said, 'No one sees a truthful person without being in awe of him.'
