Conclusions The current study showed that poorness and unreliability of “al-kafi” narratives is a vain thought. Hence, it is recommended to perform clinical trial studies (at least) on accurate/authentic narratives, and also consider them as reputable and valid narratives, along with traditional medicine references. Results From all narratives of the book “al-kafi” (pillars, furoo, and rouzat al-kafi), 2233 narratives which indicated the effect of material factors on human health, environmental health, and treatment were extracted as medical narratives. Extracted narratives were categorized in three groups: accurate, authentic, and poor. Total number of accurate/authentic and poor narratives were 1272 and 961, respectively. In other words, around 60% of medical narratives of the book “al-kafi” were assessed as accurate/authentic and just 40% as poor. Objectives This study aimed to extract medical narratives of the book “al-kafi”, determine their number, and evaluate their authentication. Materials and Methods The current research was a qualitative study which evaluated all narratives of the book “al-kafi”, by “Derayat An-nour” software designed by “Islamic Sciences Computer Institute”, evaluated its medical narratives and classified them according to the level of authentication. Background The precious book “Al-Kafi” written by Seghat ul-islam Kolaini, is one of the four valuable Shia narrative books. “Kolaini” is one of the prominent Shia clerics. A unique feature of this book, compared to the other three books, is the precedence in writing in a way that some of its narratives have been cited from the infallibles (AS) by three mediators. According to the documented narratives of the book, “al-kafi” is one of the most reputable Shia narrative reference books which its extraction of medical narratives and assessing their authentication, is of great importance.
