Is it right to have the appearance of the believer but show the characteristics of the ignorant?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: Do not be like the oppressors of the ignorant era, who neither were interested in finding about the religion nor to know God. Like the egg of a viper in the nest of the birds which is sinful to break, because it is assumed that the egg belongs to a bird, but its baby is evil and harmful. This is like your appearance is like a believer in an Islamic environment, but internally you have the characteristics of the ignorant [1].
