عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ مُقَاتِلِ بْنِ سُلَيْمَانَ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) كَمْ كَانَ طُولُ آدَمَ (عليه السلام) حِينَ هُبِطَ بِهِ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ وَ كَمْ كَانَ طُولُ حَوَّاءَ قَالَ وَجَدْنَا فِي كِتَابِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ (عليه السلام) أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَمَّا أَهْبَطَ آدَمَ وَ زَوْجَتَهُ حَوَّاءَ (عليها السلام) إِلَى الْأَرْضِ كَانَتْ رِجْلَاهُ بِثَنِيَّةِ الصَّفَا وَ رَأْسُهُ دُونَ أُفُقِ السَّمَاءِ وَ أَنَّهُ شَكَا إِلَى اللَّهِ مَا يُصِيبُهُ مِنْ حَرِّ الشَّمْسِ فَأَوْحَى اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ إِلَى جَبْرَئِيلَ (عليه السلام) أَنَّ آدَمَ قَدْ شَكَا مَا يُصِيبُهُ مِنْ حَرِّ الشَّمْسِ فَاغْمِزْهُ غَمْزَةً وَ صَيِّرْ طُولَهُ سَبْعِينَ ذِرَاعاً بِذِرَاعِهِ وَ اغْمِزْ حَوَّاءَ غَمْزَةً فَيَصِيرَ طُولُهَا خَمْسَةً وَ ثَلَاثِينَ ذِرَاعاً بِذِرَاعِهَا.


308. Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Al-Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Muqatil Bin Suleyman who said: I asked Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘What was the length of Adam (as) when he (as) descended to the earth, and what was the length of Hawwa (as)?’ He (asws) said: ‘We (asws) found in the Book of Ali (asws) Bin Abu Talib (asws) that when Allah (azwj) Made Adam (as) and his (as) wife Hawwa (as) to the earth, his (as) legs were in its twin part of Al-Safa (Al-Marwa), and his (as) head was under the horizon of the sky, and he (as) complained to Allah (azwj) from the difficulty caused by the heat of the sun. So Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Revealed unto Jibraeel (as) that Adam (as) had complained from the difficulty caused from the heat of the Sun. So he compressed him (as) with a compression and his (as) length became of seventy cubits, and he compressed Hawwa (as) with a compression, so her (as) length became of thirty five cubits’.
