Four reliable hadith in Usool Al-Kafi which show Knowledge & Truth is only from Ahlulbayt (as)

‘‘I heard Abū Ja‘far, peace be upon him, say: ‘There is no truth with the people, nor anything which is correct, nor anyone of the people who judges with truth, except [through] what has come from us, the Ahlul-Bayt. And when matters become disorganized through them [the people], error [comes] from them, while what is correct [comes] from ‘Alī, peace be upon him.’’’

Also, thanks to ashqayaan, we find another hadith in Al-Amaali Al-Mufeed:

Abu Ja’far Mohammad Ibn Ali (as) said: “People (who have discarded us) have no truth, nor any propriety, except that which they have learnt from us Ahlulbayt. None from them can judge truly or with justice, unless he has taken its guidance from Amirul Mu’minin Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as), the key, the gate, the path blazer, the way. And when they are confused in any matter, the fault is theirs if they commit an error; and if they decide rightly, the credit goes to Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as).”

Sanad: Ja’far Ibn Mohammad Ibn Ja’far Ibn Musa Ibn Qulawaih, from Mohammad Ibn Ja’far Ibn Musa Ibn Qulawaih, from Sa’d Ibn Abdullah Ibn Abi Khalaf, from Ahmad Ibn Mohammad Ibn Isa Ibn Abdullah Al-Ash’ari Al-Qummi, from Al-Hasan Ibn Mahboub Al-Sarraad, from Ibraheem Ibn Isa, Abu Ayyoub Al-Khazzaz, from Mohammad Ibn Muslim Ibn Rabah Ath-Thaqafi
