Disclaimer: The Ahl Al-Bayt are more innocent of the Imamites than Jesus the son of Mary is of the Nasara. The following narrations cannot be found in Sunni sources were the great Imam Ja’far Ibn Muhammad (known as Al-Sadiq amongst the Salaf) and Imam Muhammad Ibn ‘Ali (known as Al-Baqir amongst the Salaf) are not mentioned except with dignity and praise, as knowledgable scholars (not ‘infallibles’ and other exaggerated nonsense) of the early Muslim community the Salaf Al-Saleh

Infallible belly science

What do the ‘infallibles’ say about big bellies?

Hadith #1

حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَمَاعَةَ عَنْ وُهَيْبِ بْنِ حَفْصٍ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قَالَ لِي يَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ إِنَّ الْبَطْنَ لَيَطْغَى مِنْ أَكْلِهِوَ أَقْرَبُ مَا يَكُونُ الْعَبْدُ مِنَ اللَّهِ جَلَّ وَ عَزَّ إِذَا خَفَّ بَطْنُهُ وَ أَبْغَضُ مَا يَكُونُ الْعَبْدُ إِلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ إِذَا امْتَلَأَ بَطْنُهُ . الكافي ج 6 ص 268 مجلسي موثق


[…] from Abu Basir on the authority of Abu ‘Abdullah (Al-Sadiq) who said: ‘… verily the stomach transgresses due to [excessive] food; the smaller the believer’s belly the closer he is to Allah and the fuller his stomach the worst he is in the sight of Allah.’ [Al-Kafi, vol. 6, pg. 268], hadith authenticated as muwathaq/reliable by Al-Majlisi]

Hadith #2

وعَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ : إِذَا شَبِعَ الْبَطْنُ طَغَى . ( مجلسي مرسل كالموثق )


On the authority of Abu Ja’far (Muhammad Al-Baqir): ‘When the stomach is full it starts rebelling.’ [Authenticated by Majlisi as mursal kal-muwathaq]

Now check how the Rafidah have described Imam Al-Baqir’s (whom they falsely attribute to themselves as their 5th ‘infallible’ Imam) physique:

كان الباقر ( عليه السلام ) بـادنـاً ” سمين “ وقد كانت بدانته تمنعه عن ارتكاب التاكليف الشاقة كما روي عنه عليه السلام أنه كان يصلي بعض النوافل جالساً وكان يتعذر بكثرة اللحم ! الأنوار النعمانية ج1ص41


Imam Al-Baqir was very fat to the extent that his obesity prevented him from performing difficult tasks. It is narrated from him, peace be upon him, that he used to pray some of the nawafil (optional) prayers in sitting position with the excuse of carrying excessive flesh (i.e. being too fat).’ [Al-Anwar Al-Nu’maniyyah, vol. 1, of. 41 by the Shi’ite Faqih, Mufassir and Muhaddith Ni’matullah Al-Jaza’iri]

What a great ascetic infallible, so oppressed he was, poor soul was eating his feelings, eating out of frustration, becoming so fat (fatter than Mu’awiyah?) that he could barely praying except in the sitting position, damn those Nasibis! They probably forced-fed him with high that fatty Saudi Mandi (delicious tho!). Shiites must be proud of these rolemodels, but they better don’t inform no fast-food chains about this uber-fat saint otherwise they will turn him into a mascot.
