Pearl of Wisdom
to his scribe Uubaydullah b. Abi Rafi', 'Put cotton flake in the Sincerity inkpot, keep the nib of your pen long, leave space between lines and join up the letters because this is most suited to creating beautiful handwriting.'
Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]

Harm and Benefi
The word “darran” which means harm and the opposite “nefan” which means benefit are used in these forms equally 9 times. The interesting point is that in 8 of these 9 repetitions, these two words are used emphasizing the opposite meanings involved and used in the same verse. There is a mathematical miracle in this repetition’s being not 9 but 8. If all these repetitions were in conjunction, there would be 9 repetition symmetries in the use. So the 8 times repetition shows the relation between these words and 1 time separate use shows the mathematical miracle. The verses these two words are used in conjunction are as follows: 5.The Feast 76, 7.The Purgatory 188, 10.Jonah 49, 13.The Thunder16, 20.Ta-Ha 89, 25. The Distinguisher 3, 34.Sheba 42, and 48.Victory 11. Apart from these 8 uses, the word “harm” (darran) is used in the sura Jinn’s 21st verse, and the word “benefit” (nefan) is mentioned in the sura Women 11th verse only once. The following is an example of these words’ being used together:
76- Say”Would you worship besides God powerless idols who can neither harm you, nor benefit you”
5. The Feast, 76
