He (a.s.) said to me: ‘And what had Suleyman (as) Bin Dawood (as) been Given. But rather, with him (a.s.) was one letter from the Magnificent Name, and your Master (a.s.) whom Allah (azwj) Said of: Say: ‘I suffice with Allah as a Witness between me and you, and one with whom is Knowledge of the Book [13:43]. And by Allah (azwj)! With Ali (a.s.) was knowledge of the Book’’. I said, ‘You (a.s.) speak the truth, by Allah (azwj), may I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)!’’

When he (a.s.) had taken his (a.s.) seat, he (a.s.) said: ‘O how strange of the people who are claiming that we (a.s.) know the hidden matters (Ghayb), and no one knows the hidden matters except Allah (azwj). I (a.s.) had thought of hitting my (a.s.) so and so maid. She went away from me and I (a.s.) did not know in which of the rooms from the house she was’’. When he (a.s.) stood from his (a.s.) gathering and went to his (a.s.) house, I and Abu Baseer and Muyasser entered to see Abu Abdullah (a.s.). We said to him (a.s.), ‘May we be sacrificed for you (a.s.)!

He (the narrator) said, ‘He (a.s.) said: ‘O Sadeyr! Don’t you read the Quran?’ I said, ‘We do read it, may I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)!’ He (a.s.) said: ‘So, did you find among what you read from the Book of Allah (azwj): The one with whom was the knowledge from the Book said, ‘I will come to you with it before your glance returns to you’. [27:40]’. He (the narrator) said, ‘I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! We have read it’. He (a.s.) said: ‘So, do you recognise the man and know what was with him from the knowledge of the Book?’ I said, ‘Inform me until I do know’. He (a.s.) said: ‘A measurement of drop of quality rain in the green ocean, was what happened to be from knowledge of the Book’. He (the narrator) said, ‘I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! How little this is!’ He (a.s.) said: ‘O Sadeyr! How much that is for the one who is not attributed to the knowledge which I (a.s.) inform you with. O Sadeyr! Did you find among what you read from the Book of Allah (azwj): Say: ‘I suffice with Allah as a Witness between me and you, and one with whom is Knowledge of the Book [13:43], all of it’. He (the narrator) said, ‘And he (a.s.) gestured by his (a.s.) hand to his (a.s.) chest and said: ‘Knowledge of the Book, all of it, by Allah (azwj), is with us (a.s.)!’ – thrice’’.
