1. Ali Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Musa Bin Imran, from his uncle, from Ali Bin Abu Hamza, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘For which reason did Allah (azwj) Give to His (azwj) Prophets (as) and His (azwj) Rasools (as), the Miracles?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘In order for there to be an evidence to the truthfulness of the one who comes with it. And the Miracle, it is a Sign of Allah (azwj), been Given to His (azwj) Prophets (as), and His (azwj) Rasools (as) in order for the truthfulness of the truthful can be recognised, from the lies of the liars’.
