Al-Jafr: The Mystical Book of Imam Ali
Al-Jafr (Arabic: ÙÙÙØÙÙÙØ) is a mystical book which, in Shia belief, includes esoteric teachings, dictated by the Islamic prophet Muhammad to Ali. Ali was the cousin and son-in-law of Muhammad and is regarded by the Shia as their first Imam and the rightful successor to Muhammad. In Shia belief, al-Jafr was a source of special knowledge in Muhammad's household (ahl al-bayt) available to the successors of Ali, namely, Shia Imams, which was handed down from each Imam to the next. The book is said to contain all information ever needed in matters of religion, including a detailed penal code that accounts even for bruises. The first mention of the book is often associated with the sixth Shia Imam, Ja'far al-Sadiq. The Twelver Shia believe that the book is now in the possession of the last Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi.

According to Shia tradition, al-Jafr was one of the books that Muhammad gave to Ali, passing on his wisdom and knowledge. It is said that Ali kept the book in his possession and gave it to his son Hasan ibn Ali after him. The book was then inherited by the Shia Imams until it reached Ja'far al-Sadiq, who often mentioned and quoted from it. Ja'far al-Sadiq also instructed some of his companions to read and copy from the book. After Ja'far al-Sadiq, the book was passed on to his son Musa al-Kadhim, and then to his grandson Ali al-Ridha. The book was finally entrusted to Muhammad al-Mahdi, the twelfth and final Imam of the Twelver Shia, who is believed to be in occultation since 874 CE. The Twelver Shia believe that al-Jafr is one of the four books that Muhammad al-Mahdi will bring with him when he reappears as the Mahdi.
Al-Jafr is considered to be one of the most important and sacred books in Shia Islam, as it contains the teachings of Muhammad and Ali, as well as the secrets of creation and prophecy. It is also regarded as a source of guidance and inspiration for the Shia Imams and their followers. Al-Jafr is believed to contain the answers to all questions and problems that may arise in the Islamic community until the end of times. It is also said to contain information about the past, present, and future events, including the signs of the Day of Judgment and the advent of the Mahdi. Al-Jafr is also seen as a proof of the legitimacy and authority of Ali and his descendants as the rightful leaders of Muslims. c481cea774
