Ways of The Prophet (S.A.W)

by Sheikh Muhammad Abdul Hai Arifi

His noble countenence

Hadis: Hadrat Abu Hurairah (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated: I have never seen a more handsome person than the holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam). It seemed as if his face was effulgent like the sun. When he smiled the walls seemed to flash.” (Madarij-un-Nubuwah). [Kibabush-Shifa]

Hind Bin Abi Hâla (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated: The countenance of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was noble, dignified and majestic; it was lustrous like the moon on the fourteenth (of the lunar month);

Hadrat Anas (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated:

“I am not aware of any kind of ‘Amber’ (amtergris) or musk or any other aromatic thing ever so fragrant as the odour of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam). If he shook hands with any one, the man would feel the sweet odour all the day. If he stroked the head of a child, the child would be distinguished from other children by the pleasant odour (of the Holy Prophet’s hands). If the holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) passed by any path, any one going in search of him would know by the scent that he had passed by that path. His noble body possessed this sweet smell without the use of any perfume. May ALLAAH bless him and greet him with worthy greeting.” [Nashrut-tib]
