Al-Mahdi [Hazrat Mahdi (as)] who is among the family of Muhammad (saas)… has a wide stomach, his eyebrow are very close, 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 him will not affect him before Allah, he is a luminous lamp…
(Bihar al-Anwar: 86-81)
