Pearl of Wisdom

'Allah Almighty revealed to David (AS), 'You would be a great worshipper, if it was not for the fact that you consume from the treasury and do not labour at all with your own hands.' He said, 'David (AS) then cried, so Allah revealed unto the iron, 'Soften yourself for my worshipper David, and it did.' So, Allah softened the metal for him, and he used to make an armour shield every day, and would sell it for one thousand dirhams. He made three hundred and sixty shields and sold them for three hundred and sixty thousand dirhams, and hence he no longer needed the treasury.'

1277 Emission of diseases Assalam o alaikum, I was reading the contributions of Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S) to science, and came across this;
Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (A.S) has said that patients suffering from certain diseases emit special types of rays. If these rays fall upon a healthy person, they are apt to make him sick.
Can you please elaborate on this, or recommend some reading material that explains it more in depth.



1288 Worship Asalamalaikum
Imam Jafar e Sadiq (A.S) said :
"He who claims that he knows God due to the imprint of the heart is
polytheist. He who claims that knows God by name, not meaning, is
declaring the contrary, because the name is new (created). He who claims
that he worships the name and the meaning is associating others with God.
He who claims that he worships the meaning by the description, not
realization, is referring to something absent. He who claims that he worships
the description and the described is nullifying God’s oneness because
description is something other than the described. He who claims that he
adds the described to the description is belittling the great. They have no
true respect of God. "
‘What is the course to the true believing in God’s oneness, then?’ some asked. He
(peace be upon him) said:
"The door of search is opened and the pursuit of the exit is existing. The
knowledge of the present should precede his description while the knowledge
of the description of the absent should precede the knowledge of him"
My question is how should we truly know or should we truly worship GOD then
