Quote for the Day…

Standard

i found this while working on my Middle Eastern History final. I think it is brilliant and worth sharing with you all:

Someone once asked Ja’far al-Sadiq (the sixth Imam in mainstream Shi’a Islam) to show him God. The imam replied, “Look at the sun.” The man replied that he could not look at the sun because it was too bright. Said Ja’far: “If you cannot see the created, how can you expect to see the creator?”
