Ilm Al Jafr ?

Here is a strange belief within the 12er Shia sect.

It is narrated in the Al-Kafi of Kulayni.

A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn
al-Hakam from al-Husayn ibn abu ‘Ala’ who has said that he heard Abu ‘Abd
Allah, recipient of divine supreme covenant, say the following:
“With me is the white Jafr.” I (the narrator) then asked the Imam, recipient of divine supreme covenant, “What is in it?” The Imam said, “In it there are the psalms of David, the Torah of Moses, the Gospel of Jesus, the Books of Abraham, the laws that explain the lawful and unlawful matters. (Al Kafi, Vol 1 H 631, Ch. 40, H 3, Pg 204)



Narrated to us Muhammad bin Ali bin Hatim Naufali alias Kermani: Narrated to us Abul Abbas Ahmad bin Isa Washsha Baghdadi: Narrated to us Ahmad bin Tahir Qummi: Narrated to us Muhammad bin Najr bin Sahl Shaibani: Informed us Ali bin Harith from Saeed bin Mansur Jaushini: Informed us Ahmad bin Ali Budaili: Informed us my father from Sadeer Sairafi that he said
As-Sadiq (a.s.) took a deep sigh that his chest expanded and his fright enhanced, and he said, O, you, I looked at the Book of al-Jafr this morning, and that is the book that encompasses the knowledge of deaths, trials and tribulations and the knowledge of all that has been and all that will be until the day of judgment, which Allah, glory to his name, has exclusively imparted to Muhammad and the Imams after him, peace unto him and them. I viewed therein the birth of our Qaim and his disappearance and its protraction and the length of his lifespan and the trials of the believers through him and after him in that period and the generation of doubts in their hearts from the length of his disappearance and the apostasy of most of them from their religion and their removing the cord of Islam from their necks, about which Allah, glory to His name, has said, We have fastened to every man’s neck his fateful bird which is the Wilayah. So emotions overpowered me and griefs overwhelmed me.” We said, “O son of Allah’s Messenger, dignify us and bestow honor upon usby sharing some of what you know from the knowledge.” He said, “Allah, the Mighty and Sublime has consigned three qualities in the Qaim of ours, which He had consigned to three of the apostles. He foreordained his birth like the birth of Musa (a.s.); his disappearance like the disappearance of Isa (a.s.); and his protraction like the protraction of Nuh (a.s.). Moreover, He made the lifespan of His virtuous servant, Khizr, a proof of his long life. (Kamaaluddin wa Tamaamun Ni’ma, Vol 2,  p.32)
