The boundaries of Fadak
The following article is a conversation between Imam al-Kazim ع and Harun ل discussing the boundaries of Fadak

Harun's face changed color and said, 'Eh !' The Imam (as) went on to say, 'The second boundary is Samarkand'. Harun's face was clouded with outrage. The Imam ع added, 'And the third boundary is Africa' Now Harun's face became so dark, it looked black and said, 'Eh !' The Imam ع said, 'And the fourth lies beyond the Caspian Sea and Armenia' Harun said: Nothing remains for us; so, move over and take my seat on the throne' Imam Musa al-Kazim ع said, 'I have told you already that if I define it, you will not return it'
