Pearl of Wisdom

'Ibn Abi al-'Awja' once came to Abu 'Abdillah [al-Sadiq] (AS) and asked, 'Is it not true that you claim that Allah is the Creator of all things?' to which Abu 'Abdillah (AS) replied, 'Yes.' So he retorted, 'I create!' So the Imam asked him, 'How do you create?!' He replied, 'I defecate in a place, then wait for it, and it becomes a creature, which I have created!' So Abu 'Abdillah (AS) said, 'Is it not true that the creator of something should know what he has created?' to which he replied yes. Imam continued, 'Well do you know the female from the male [of what you have supposedly created], and do you know its lifespan?' to which he had no answer.'
