A Look back at the amazing features. Appearance, characteristics, habits, and personality of our most amazing nabi ﷺ, to help us understand how special he was.
Jibreel Alayhis Salam has said:
قَلَّبْتُ مَشَارِقَ الْأَرْضِ ، وَمَغَارِبَهَا فَلَمْ أَرَ رَجُلًا أَفْضَلَ مِنْ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
“I searched the east and the west, I left no stone unturned, but I did not find anyone like our beloved Rasul ﷺ.” (Mujamul Awsat-Tabraani)
The Glow in his Very Blessed Face
Listen to “The Glow in His Very Blessed Face” by Mawlana Junayd Makda Sahib
Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه says that he never saw anyone more beautiful than our beloved Rasul ﷺ. Describing his beauty he would say that his blessed face had a shine, which was so bright, that it seemed as though the sun radiated from within His blessed face.
Someone once asked Barra رضي الله عنه, about the shine on our beloved Nabi ﷺ’s very blessed face. The person asking said, ‘Was it like the shine of a sword?’ Barra رضي الله عنه replied, “No, it was more like the illuminating moon.”
Jabir رضي الله عنه mentions that on one occasion he saw our beloved Nabi ﷺ on a moonlit night. The moon was full and the sky was dark, which made the moon even brighter. Jabir رضي الله عنه says he repeatedly looked at the blessed face of our beloved Nabi ﷺ and the full moon, and he kept looking, trying to determine which was more brighter and which was more illuminated. After setting several glances at the moon and our beloved Nabi ﷺ, he ultimately concluded that the striking beauty of our beloved Rasul ﷺ outshone the radiance of the full moon! Amazing right?!
Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Abbas رضي الله عنه says, that Rasulullah ﷺ’s blessed face was:
1) Brighter than the sun on a sunny day
2) If He was to be near a lamp, then the radiance and the glow of His blessed face would outshine the lamp!
These amazing descriptions show us the unique glow which sat on the face of our beloved Nabi ﷺ and captured the eyes, and hearts of all who came across him.
May Allah Ta’aala fill our hearts with the love of our beloved Nabi ﷺ and enable us to emulate Him in every aspect of our life.
يَارَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِماً اَبَداً عَلٰى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ
