باب ما جاء في خلقه صلى الله عليه و سلم
عن علي بن أبي طالب قال: لَم يَكُن النَّبي صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيه و سَلَّم بِالطَّويلِ و لا بِالقَصِير, شَثنُ الكَفَّينِ و القَدَمَينِ, ضَخمُ الرَأس, ضَخمُ الكَرَادِيس, طَوِيلُ المَسرَبَة, إذا مَشَى تَكَفَّأَ تَكَفُّؤاً كَأَنَّمَا يَنحَطُّ من صَبَب, لَم أَر قَبلَهُ و لا بَعدَهُ مِثلَهُ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ و سَلَّم.
(حديث حسن صحيح)
Chapter on the noble features of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘Alayi wa salam)
It is reported from Ali radhiAllahu ‘anhu: Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘Alayi wa salam) was neither tall nor very short. The soles of both his feet and his palms were fully fleshed. He had a large head. The joints of his bones were also large. There was a thin line of hair from the chest to the navel. When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘Alayi wa salam) walked, it appeared as though he were descending from a high place. I did not see anyone like him, neither before him, nor after him.
(Hadith Hasan Saheeh)
Benefits from the hadith:
1- Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa salam) was of medium stature, neither tall nor short.
2- The joints of his body, including his hands and feet, were strong and large, denoting strength and power.
3- His whole body was proportionate. His head was well-formed and proportionate to the rest of his body.
4- When he walked, (sallallahu ‘Alayi wa salam), he lifted his legs with vigor, leaned forward slightly, and placed his feet softly on the ground, so it appeared as though he were descending to a low place. He walked at a quick but steady pace.
:قال عمرو بن العاص
ما كان أحد أحب إلي من رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم و لا أحلى في عيني منه و ما كنت أطيق أن أملأ عيني منه إجلالا له و لو قيل لي صفه لما إستطعت أن أصفه لأني لم أكن أملأ عيني منه
‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas radhiAllahu ‘anhu used to say: I could not look him in the eye because of awe. If I were to be asked to describe him I would not be able to, because I could not look him in the eye. (Saheeh Muslim)
بأبي أنت و أمي يا رسول الله.. صلى الله عليه و على آله و صحبه و سلم
May my mother and father be sacrificed for you, O Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alahi wa salam)
