During the ruling of Haroun Alrashid (Aaron the Upright) a man came to him saying that he have a miracle. Haroun told him to show the miracle. So the man pulls out a long needle and stick it in the floor. He gets out a bag full of needles and starts throwing them at the needle in the floor. Needle after needle they get attached to the longer one in the floor, its magnetic. After the man is done Haroun Al-Rashid said “give him 100 Dinars for his intelligence, and 20 whips for he wasted our time in something useless”.
