“Paint me a picture of Him (S.A.W)” II

From Ten Ahadith

Narrated by Hazrat Haleema (R.A): “When i brought Muhammad (S.A.W) to my house, there was no house of tribe Bano Sa’ad (Hazrat Haleema’s tribe) which wasn’t perfumed”

Ibn Abbas (R.A) says: “The front teeth of Rasoolullah (S.A.W) were a bit wide (spread out). They were spaced out and not close together. When Rasoolullah (S.A.W) talked, an illumination emitting from his teeth could be seen.”

Abu Ma’mar (R.A) narrates: “I asked Khabbab (R.A) whether Nabi (S.A.W) used to recite the Qur’an in the Zuhr and the ‘Asr prayers. He replied in the affirmative. I said, “How did you come to know that?” He replied, “From the movement of his beard.”

Qataadah bin Da’aamah (R.A) relates: “I asked Anas (R.A) “How was the hair of Rasoolullah (S.A.W)?”  He replied: “It was not very twisted, nor very straight.  It had a slight twist and was a bit curled, and reached till his ear-lobes.”

Narrated by Jabbir (R.A): “When Nabi (S.A.W) walked through any road, the person who walked after him on that same road could recognize- by the fragrance of His (S.A.W)’s body or of His (S.A.W)’s sweat- that Rasoolullah (S.A.W) had walked this road.”

Anas (R.A) reports: “I have never touched silk or neither Dibaj (thick silk) softer than the palm of the Nabi (S.A.W) nor have I smelt a perfume nicer than the sweat of the Nabi (S.A.W).”

Anas Malik (R.A) reported that Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) came to the house of Umm Sulaim (R.A) and slept in her bed while she was away from her house. On the other day too, he slept in her bed. She came and it was said to her:” It is Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) who is having siesta in your house, lying in your bed.” She came and found him sweating and his sweat falling on the leather cloth spread on her bed. She opened her scent-bag and began to fill the bottles with it. Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) was startled and woke up and said: “Umm Sulaim, what are you doing?” She said: “Allah’s Messenger, we seek blessings for our children through it.” Thereupon he said: “You have done something right.”

Hind Ibn Abi Haalah (R.A.) said: “Muhammad (S.A.W) had large palms. His legs were straight and long. His other limbs were also straight. The arches on his feet could hardly touch the ground. When he walked, he walked briskly (i.e. he walked with strength of purpose), lifting each foot clearly off the ground, not like those who walk with an air of ostentation, and he walked at ease when he was not in a hurry. When he walked, he leant forward as if descending a slope.”

Ebrahim bin Muhammad (R.A) says: “When ‘Ali (R.A) described Rasoolullah (S.A.W), he used to say: “Rasoolullah (S.A.W) walked, he lifted his leg with vigour. He did not drag his feet on the ground like women do. When he walked, because of the speed and force of the legs, it seemed as if he was descending from a high place”.

It is related from Jaabir (R.A) that he said: ” I once saw Rasoolullah (S.A.W) on the night of a full moon. On that night, Rasoolullah (S.A.W) wore red clothing. At times, I looked at the full moon and at times at Rasoolullah (S.A.W). Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that Rasoolullah (S.A.W) was more handsome, beautiful and more radiant than the full moon.”

Don’t forget to recite as much Durood as you can!

Love and Duas,
