Then he mentions all the points one by one. The last two points are very interesting.
Eleventh point : It is narrated from Imam Jafar regarding the differences of hadith that he said : What opposes the Sunnis, then it is correct, till he said : Look at what they incline towards in their verdicts and reject it, and accept the opposite. And there are plenty of narrations regarding it.
Twelfth point : Ibn Babuyah has narrated in Uyoon al-Akhbar from Imam Reza that it was said to him : An issue arises from which there is no escape and there is no Shia scholar in the city so that it can be asked from him. He said : If it is so, then go to the Qadhi of the city and whatever he says, take the opposite of it because in its opposition is guidance.
And in another narration, there is prohibition of narrating from the Sunnis even in the virtues of ahlelbayt.
