When Amir al-mu’minin decided to set out for the battle with the Kharijites
someone said, “If you set out at this moment then according to astrology I fear you will not be successful in your aim,”
whereupon Amir al-mu’minin said:
Do you think you can tell the time when a man goes out and no evil befall him
or can warn of the time at which if one goes out harm will accrue?
Whoever testifies to this falsifies the Qur’an
and becomes unmindful of Allah in achieving his desired objective and in warding off the undesirable
You cherish saying this so that he who acts on what you say should praise you rather than Allah
because according to your misconception you have guided him about the hour in which he would secure benefit
and avoid harm
Then Amir al-mu’minin advanced towards the people and said:
O People! Beware of learning the science of stars except that with which guidance is sought on land or sea because it leads to divining and an astrologer is a diviner
while the diviner is like the sorcerer
the sorcerer is like the unbeliever and the unbeliever would be in Hell
Get forward in the name of Allah
