Q: To what extent is Nahjul-Balaghah deemed authentic? Can we ascribe its contents to Imam Ali (a.s.)?

A: Not all what is stated in Nahjul-Balaghah can be ascribed to Imam Ali (a.s). Hence, every reference of every speech or word must be studied. Nahjul-Balaghah is also not written by Ashareif Ar-Radi and many religious scholars have talked about its references in more than one book.
