Q: What is the evidence on what is said that Imam Ali (a.s.) answered when he was asked about the science of stars that: “The unseen is a science that if you study it a little, it leads to unbelief, and if you study it thoroughly, it leads to belief”?

A: It seems that in this Hadith, the Imam (a.s.) wants to show that no one can know the secrets of the Universe, therefore, it is prohibited to talk about the uncertainties issues, fortune-telling and the unseen.
