Intuition of the Fuqaha

Imaam Qutaibah says: “I saw Imaam Muhammed Bin Al-Hasan and Imaam Shaafi’ sitting outside the Ka’bah. A person passed by. One of those two illustrious Imaams said, ‘Let us test our sixth sense.’ One said that he [the passer-by] appeared to be a tailor. The other said that he appeared to be a carpenter. They sent someone to enquire. He came back and reported that the man said: ‘I was a tailor before, now I do carpentry.”
