Q: To what extent is Nahj El-Balagha deemed authentic? Can we ascribe its contents to Imam Ali (a.s.)?  11/29/2006 1:59:01 PM

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

Q: Imam AS-Sadiq (a.s.) said: “One for whom two days are the same is at loss; one for whom the last of the two days is worse is damned; and one whose life passes and does not improve himself is at loss. For such a person death is better than life” (Ma’ani Al-Akhbar, Assadouk, p.342).Would you please explain this saying and illustrate the Imam’s indication that touches on the creative aspect of man?  7/10/2006 10:12:44 AM

A: This Hadith aims at motivating people to work more, increase their good deeds, and to seek always the best. But, the person who does wrong deeds will be far away from God in the following days.

Q: What is the evidence on what is said that Imam Ali (a.s.) answered when he was asked about the science of stars that: “The unseen is a science that if you study it a little, it leads to unbelief, and if you study it thoroughly, it leads to belief”?  4/24/2006 11:45:19 AM

A: It seems that in this Hadith, the Imam (a.s.) wants to show that no one can know the secrets of the Universe, therefore, it is prohibited to talk about the uncertainties issues, fortune-telling and the unseen.
