4 questions asked from hazrat Ali (as)

A man once came to Imam Ali (as) and asked him four questions.

1. What is wajib (essential), and what is even more wajib than wajib?

2. What is near and what is even nearer?

3. What is astonishing and what is even more astonishing?

4. What is difficult and what is even more difficult?

After hearing that, Imam Ali a.s answered, ‘Wajib is obedience to Allah and what is

more wajib is to guard yourself from sins. Near is qiyamat but what is even nearer is

death. Astonishing is the creation of this world and what is even more astonishing is the

love for this world. What is difficult is the affair of the grave and what is even more

difficult is going there without any provision.

Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb's (as) Mathematical Brilliance: Dividing Inheritance dot.gif

mathematical.brilliance.jpgImam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (as) was endowed with a quick, sharp, incisive, mathematical mind. Here are a few interesting stories in which Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb's (as) mathematical brilliance revealed itself.

What is a wife's share?

Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (as) was once interrupted while he was delivering a sermon from the pulpit by someone who asked him how to distribute the inheritance of someone who had died leaving a wife, his parents and two daughters. Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (as) instantly answered:

"The wife's share becomes one ninth."

How?

This answer is in fact the result of a long analysis with a number of steps. Ordinarily, we have to decide on the original share of each of these heirs, in the following way:

The wife takes one eighth, in view of the presence of an inheriting child. [Noble Qur'an, 4:12]

The deceased's father and mother take one sixth each. [Noble Qur'an, 4:11]

The two daughters take two thirds of the inheritance. [Noble Qur'an, 4:11]

So the total will be:

1/8 + 1/6 + 1/6 + 2/3 = 3/24 + 4/24 + 4/24 + 16/24 = 27/24

This means the share becomes less than 1/8 in view of the increase of the total of the shares which are so fixed and prescribed. So the one eighth, the original share due to the wife out of twenty-four total shares, has become three shares out of a total of twenty-seven, which is one ninth.

Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb's (as) mind went through this complex mathematical process in a second! Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb's (as) Mathematical Brilliance: Whole Number and Not A Fraction dot.gif

One Day a Jewish person came to Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (as), thinking that since Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb thinks he is too smart, I will ask him such a tough question that he won't be able to answer it and I will have the chance to embarrass him in front of all the Arabs.

Jewish person asked "Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb, tell me a number, that if we divide it by any number from 1-10 the answer will always come in the form of a whole number and not as a fraction."

Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (as) looked back at him and said, "Take the number of days in a year and multiply it with the number of days in a week and you will have your answer."

The Jewish person got astonished but as he was a polytheist (Mushrik), he still didn't believe Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (as). He calculated the answer Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb (as) gave him.

To his amazement he came across the following results:

math.jpgThe number of Days in a Year = 360 (in Arab)

The Number of Days in a Week = 7

The product of the two numbers = 2520

Now...

2520 ÷ 1 = 2520

2520 ÷ 2 = 1260

2520 ÷ 3 = 840

2520 ÷ 4 = 630

2520 ÷ 5 = 504

2520 ÷ 6 = 420

2520 ÷ 7 = 360

2520 ÷ 8 = 315

2520 ÷ 9 = 280

2520 ÷ 10= 252

New questions asked from hazrat Ali (as)

(The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Muhammad ibn al-Hussein ibn Abil Khat’tab, on the authority of Al-Hikam ibn Meskin al-Saqafy, on the authority of Salih ibn Aqabah, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB),

When Abu Bakr died and Umar took over the Caliphate, Umar went to the mosque and sat down. A man entered the mosque and said, ‘O commander of the faithful (referring to Umar)! I am one of the Jews. I am their great scholar. I wish to ask you about some problems. I will embrace Islam if you can convince me.’ Umar said, ‘What are they?’ He said, ‘Three, three and one. I will ask you if you please or guide me to ask anyone else who is more knowledgeable if you wish.’ Umar said, ‘Go and ask that young fellow who is Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB).’

The Jew went to Ali (MGB) and asked him questions. Ali (MGB) said, ‘Why did you say three, three and one but did not say seven?’ The Jew said, ‘That would have been due to my ignorance! If you could not answer the first three questions, there would be no need to ask the rest.’ Ali (MGB) said, ‘Will you accept Islam if I give you the correct answers?’ The Jew said, ‘Yes, I will.’ Then Ali (MGB) said, ‘Go ahead and ask.’ The Jew asked, ‘Which were the first rock placed on the Earth, the first spring which gushed out of the Earth and the first tree which grew on the Earth?’ Ali (MGB) replied, ‘O Jew! You say that the first rock placed on the Earth was the one in Bayt ul- Muqadas (Holy Shrine in Jerusalem), but you lie. It was the rock which Adam brought down to the Earth from Heaven. You say that the first spring which gushed out of the Earth was one in Bayt ul-Muqadas (Holy Shrine in Jerusalem) but you lie. That spring was the spring of youth in which Yushu ibn Noon washed the fish and the same one from which Khizr drank. Whoever drinks from it will become eternal.’ The Jew said, ‘You are right. This has been recorded in Aaron’s handwriting on the authority of Moses.’

Then Ali (MGB) continued, ‘You say that the first tree which grew on the Earth was an olive tree but you lie. It was the Al-Ajwat date which Adam brought down to the Earth from Heaven.’ The Jew said, ‘You are right. This has been recorded in Aaron’s handwriting on the authority of Moses.’ Then the Jew asked, ‘Where in Paradise does your Prophet sit?’ Ali (MGB) said, ‘In the noblest and highest place in the Adan Gardens.’ The Jew said, ‘You are right. This has been recorded in Aaron’s handwriting on the authority of Moses.’ Then the Jew asked, ‘Who will accompany him in his place of residence?’ Ali (MGB) replied, ‘The twelve Divine Leaders.’ The Jew said, ‘You are right. This has been recorded in Aaron’s handwriting on the authority of Moses.’ Then the Jew asked the seventh question and accepted Islam. He asked, ‘For how many years will his Trustee live after him?’ Ali (MGB) said, ‘Thirty years.’ He asked, ‘Will he die or will he get killed?’ Ali (MGB) replied, ‘He will be killed with such a blow on the head that his beard will become red with his blood.’ The Jew said, ‘You are right. This has been recorded in Aaron’s handwriting on the authority of Moses.’”

I have recorded this book from its various chains of narrators in Awael.
