`Ilm al-Jafr, “the science of Jafr" (Alphabetical Divination).
This article will be permanently flagged as inappropriate and made unaccessible to everyone. Are you certain this article is inappropriate? Email Address:. Al-Jafr is a mystical Shia holy book [ 1 ] [ 2 ] compiled, according to Shia belief, by Ali and inherited by him from Muhammad.
Al-Jafr is considered to be composed of two skin boxes in which were kept various books of the past Prophets and the books inherited from Muhammad, Ali and Fatimah to the rest of Ahl al-Bayt , with each new Imam receiving them from his dying predecessor Imam, as well as the armour and weapons of Muhammad. Al-Jafr was reportedly one of the sources and origins of knowledge acquired by the 12 Imams , and the sixth Imam of Twelver and Ismai'ili Shi'ite Islam, Ja'far al-Sadiq , took pride in having possession of al-Jafr that comprised the hidden knowledge of Muhammad. The later Twelver Imams were accustomed to refer at times to the sacred and secret book of al-Jafr, which was left in their keeping by Ali and belief in the existence of al-Jafr with the Imams was firm, according to the Twelver Shia. The 12 Imams also learned the science of Huruf letters of the alphabet from al-Jafr and used this science to derive facts and rulings from al-Jafr. Al-Jafr was handed down among the 12 Imams, and the Twelver Shia believe it is currently in the possession of the hidden Imam al-Mahdi.
