A Hindu physician attached to the court of al-Mansur

once and asked Mowlana Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s)

if he wanted to learn something in this field from him.

The Imam (a.s) said: ‘No. What I have is better than what you have.

‘ Then began a very interesting discourse,

in which the Imam (a.s) asked the physician questions like these:

Why is the head covered with hair?

Why are there lines and wrinkles on the forehead?

Why are the eyes shaped like almonds?

Why has the nose been placed between the eyes?

Why are the hair and the nails without life (sensation)?

These questions moved from the head downwards, till he ended by asking:

Why do the knees fold backwards, and why is the foot hollow on oneside?

To all these questions, the physician had only one reply: ‘I do not know.’

The Imam (a.s) said: ‘But I do know.’ Then he explained all the questions, showing the wisdom and power of the Creator. The hair is created over the head so that oil may reach inside, and heat may go out through it, and so that it may protect the head from heat and cold.

There are lines and wrinkles on the forehead so that sweat from the head does not reach the eyes, giving the person a chance to wipe it away.

The eyes are almond-shaped so as to make it easy to put medicine inside them and remove dirt from them. Had they been square or round, both would have been difficult. The nose is put between the eyes as it helps to divide the light equally towards both eyes.

The hair and nails lack sensation to make it easier to cut and trim them. If there were life in them it would have hurt a person to cut them.

The knees fold backwards because human beings walk forward, and the foot is hollow to make movement easier.’ The physician became a convert to Islam.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a small more in the way of content so population could join together with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    לפני רכישת מכשירי שמיעה, חשוב כמובן לבצע בדיקת שמיעה אצל אודיולוג או אודיולוגית, שמטרתה לאבחן אם קיימת פגיעה בשמיעה ומה מידתה. בכל מקרה, ובמיוחד אם בדיקת השמיעה מצביעה על פגיעה או ירידה בשמיעה, מומלץ להשלים את הבדיקה על ידי בדיקה אצל מומחה אף אוזן גרון

    I want to show my thanks to you for rescuing me from this setting. As a result of researching throughout the the net and coming across concepts that were not pleasant, I was thinking my entire life was gone. Being alive minus the approaches to the problems you’ve fixed all through your main short article is a crucial case, and the kind that would have in a wrong way affected my career if I hadn’t noticed your website. Your primary know-how and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was important. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a step like this. I’m able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks so much for your expert and amazing help. I won’t think twice to propose your site to any person who needs recommendations on this problem.
