In the name of Allah, the Compassionate the Merciful. All praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. May prayers and salutations be upon the master of the two worlds, our liege lord Muhammad http://www.sunnimedia.co.uk/media/forums/sawas13fc7.gif, and upon His Pure Family, Noble Companions, and all who follow His exemplary way.

The Companions described the Prophet’s (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) beautiful form that dazzled all who saw Him. They said: “The Messenger of Allah (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) had the most beautiful face, and the best form. He was neither excessively tall nor short. His face was like the moon when it is full. No one before or after him has been seen like him, and if you were to see him you would say, ‘The sun has risen.’ And when he would speak, a radiant light would be seen emitting from between his teeth.”

[And from the other reports:] “The Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) had a black beard and a beautiful mouth. He had long hair and a thick beard.” “The Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) had broad shoulders. He was the greatest of people and the best of them. His hair reached his ears. Never have I seen anything more beautiful than him!”“It was as if the Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) was fashioned of silver and his sweat was pearl drops.” “The Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) was of medium height compared to others; He was neither tall nor short. He had the most beautiful face of all people and was the best of them in character. He was neither excessively tall nor short, but was closer to being tall. Never did a tall person walk with him save that the Messenger of Allah (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) appeared taller. Sometimes the Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) would walk in between two tall men yet He would seem taller then them, and when they would part ways He would appear once again of medium height.”

Sayyiduna Anas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu said, “I have never smelled ambergris or musk or anything sweeter than the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam.” Once, the Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) was brought a bucket of water. He drank from it and dipped it back into the well, which caused the well to emit the fragrance of musk. The Prophet’s (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) sweat was more fragrant than the finest scent. Sayyiduna Anas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu said, “The Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) came to take a nap at our house and had perspired, so my mother came with a bottle and began to soak up the sweat. The Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam) woke up and said, ‘What are you doing, Umm Sulaym?’ She replied, ‘We mix this sweat in our perfumes, and it is the finest scent.’” Sayyiduna Anas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu also said, “He was the most beautiful of Allah’s creation I had seen, and His scent was the most fragrant, and His hands the softest.”
