(وَاللَّهُ خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ تُرابٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ جَعَلَكُمْ أزْوَاجاً وَما تَحْمِلُ مِنْ أُنْثَى‏ وَلا تَضَعُ إِلَّا بِعِلْمِهِ وَما يُعَمَّرُ مِنْ مُعَمَّرٍ وَلا يُنْقَصُ مِنْ عُمُرِهِ إلَّا فِي كِتابٍ إنَّ ذلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ) .1

“Allah created you from dust, then from a drop of [seminal] fluid, then He made you mates. No female conceives or delivers except with His knowledge, and no elderly person advances in years, nor is anything diminished from his life, but it is [recorded] in a Book. That is indeed easy for Allah.”2

4585.Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Verily nobody will receive another day of his lifespan except that another day will be taken from him from his end.’6
