Al-Majlisi affirms ignorance to the imams?


Did the father of Al-Majlisi attribute the lack of knowledge to the Imams (a.)?


Muhammad Taqi Al-Majlisi writes: “It is reported authentically (Sahih) by Jamil Ibn Darraj that Abu Abdillah As-Sadiq (a.) said: “Ali, the son of Al-Husain (a.), saw me tearing out the grass around the tents in Mina. So he said, “O my son, that is not to be ripped out.” If it is possible, then it is interpreted that he had the determined will or that he was small and not yet of age, and we consider ignorance (Jahl) to be permissible among them at a young age.” [Rawdat-ul-Muttaqin, Volume 4, page 166]

قال المولى محمد تقي المجلسي رحمه الله: الصحيح عن جميل بن دراج عن أبي عبد الله عليه الصلاة والسلام قال: رآني علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام وأنا أقلع الحشيش من حول الفاسطيط بمنى فقال: يا بني إن هذا لا يقلع وإن أمكن حمله على إرادة القطع أو يكون صغيرا غير مكلف وجوزنا الجهل عليهم في الصغر


The ignorance (Jahl) of Al-Majlisi is more questionable.
