Hazrat Mahdi (as)'s whole body will be wide.

Hazrat Mahdi (as)'s whole body will be wide.

From Yahya ibn Nufal, indeed Musa ibn Jafar (as) raises his hands and supplicates after afternoon prayer, I inquire from him saying, to whom did you offer prayer for? He said: to Al-Mahdi among the family of Muhammad (saas) and said: HE IS HAVING WIDE STOMACH, HIS LEGS ARE VERY ENERGETIC, HIS SHOULDERS ARE WIDE…HIS NIGHT SHALL GUARD THE STARS BY HIS BOWING DOWN AND PROSTRATION TO ALLAH, HE WHOM THE BLAMES OF THOSE THAT BLAME SHALL NOT AFFECT HIM BEFORE ALLAH, HE IS THE LUMINOUS LAMP, HE SHALL RISE WITH THE COMMAND OF ALLAH.

(Bihar al-Anwar : 86-81)

Abu Ja’far, through the forefathers of Imam Muhammad Baqir, narrated from the Amirul Muminun, the leader of the Ahl al-Bayt, that he said from the pulpit “IN THE END TIMES A MAN FROM MY LINE WOULD RISE… HAVING A CLEAR AND WIDE BELLY AND HIS THIGHS WOULD BE BROAD AND HIS BONES SHALL BE LONG (BIG) AND PROMINENT…”

(The Life of Imam Mahdi (as), Allama Bakir Sharif al-Quraish)

In another hadith, Ali (as) again mentions about Imam Mahdi (as) in the following words: “HE SHALL HAVE A WIDE FOREHEAD… AND A CLEAR AND WIDE BELLY, BROAD THIGHS …”

(Yanabi al-Mawaddah, p. 423)

Among the information delivered by our Prophet (saas) about Hazrat Mahdi (as), who is the Imam of the End Times and owner of the time, the physical features of Hazrat Mahdi (as) are also told in great details. One of these features is the fact that Hazrat Mahdi (as) has a wide stomach and wide shoulders just like our Prophet (saas). In the hadith above it is pointed out that Hazrat Mahdi (as) is broad shouldered and has a wide stomach. Besides it is also understood from the hadith that Hazrat Mahdi’s (as) eyebrows are close to one another, that he walks fast, meaning He has a lively and restless creation.
