Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.) informed – A man asked Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) about his medium height, big belly and lack of hair on his forehead. Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) replied – Allah has created me neither tall nor short, but of medium height so that I can cut a short enemy into two pieces from head to toe, and cut a tall enemy into two pieces from his waist. My belly is big since the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) opened up to me a gate of knowledge from which a thousand doors of knowledge opened up. Therefore, knowledge gathered up in my belly. And the reason why there is no hair on my forehead is that I have always worn a head armor and proceeded to fight the enemy.
