بِالْاَسَانِيدِ الثَّلَاثَةِ اِلَى الرِّضَاؑ عَنْ آبَائِهِؑ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ﷺ مَا يَنْقَلِبُ جَنَاحُ طَائِرٍ فِيْ الْهَوَاءِ اِلَّا وَ عِنْدَنَا فِيهِ عِلْمٌ

Imam Reza (peace be upon him) narrates vide his ancestors from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) who said,

“A bird’s wing does not flap in the air but that its knowledge is with us.”


Flapping of wind is merely an example. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and the infallible Imams (peace be upon them) have encompassing knowledge of the unseen. Of course, this knowledge has been granted by Allah the Almighty and with His permission.
