View Full Version : Imam Shafi'i and the One Who debated with Him

11-28-2007, 02:56 PM
A man who liked to argue simply for the sake of an argument, decided to enter into a debate with the Imam Shafi'i.

So he said:

"O Imam, How can the Devil be created from fire and at the same time be punished by Allah with fire?"

Imam Shafi'i smiled. He then extended his hands to the ground and took a rock made from dry clay,which he threw at the man. It struck the man in the face, which he contorted, indicating both his pain and anger.

Imam Shafi'i calmly said,

'Has it hurt you?"

He said in anger,

"Yes, it has hurt me".

He said,

"How is it that you were created from clay, and it was clay that made you feel pain?"

The man did not answer but he immediately grasped that the devil was made from fire and that Allah could punish him from fire.
