Pearl of Wisdom

when asked about what was popularly held among people that the studying of the stars [astronomy)' was prohibited and harmful to religion, said, 'It is not as they say. It [i.e. astronomy] does not harm your religion.' He then said, 'You are looking into something [a science] where too much of it cannot be achieved and too little of it cannot be benefitted from.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
al-Kafi, v. 8, p. 195, no. 233
