Imam Jaffer al Sadiq set forth questions which were precise and related to the human body. The Physician was unable to answer any of them.

The Physician responded by bearing witness that there is no Lord but Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah and that you (6th Imam) are the most knowledgeable in the era….
