If Imam Ali (as) had access to ‘Knowledge of The Unseen’, why did he end up being martyred? This and many other questions arise in our minds regarding the level of knowledge accessible by Allah’s (swt) chosen ones.

The Holy Qur’an has numerous verses centred around ‘Knowledge of The Unseen – ‘Ilm al-Ghayb’. We know that Allah (swt) is the ultimate All-Knowing, and we as human beings can also gain knowledge, however up to what extent?

Are individuals, such as Prophets, Messengers, Imams and the Awliya’ given access to this repository to this source of knowledge? If so, how do they access it? When are they granted access to it? Can they freely use it in their lives – and if so, why do we see the Prophets and Imams going through difficulties in their lives?

In the first series of the STEPS initiative, we will be discussing ‘Ilm al- Ghayb’. This series will consist of 4 episodes and will be released every Friday.
