Q: I want to narrate/write something from a book, a newspaper or a Shiite
website but mentioning the source would be harmful to that book or website, e.g.
it may be banned. what is your opinion about that if the copyrights are
A: If you are sure that this material is true, there is no problem in narrating
it or neglecting mentioning the source.
But, if you are not sure about that, narrating it is not a problem provided that
the source is mentioned; or else, it will be a lie. In case that mentioning the
source is risky, you have to ignore the narration at all.
