Narrated by Ali (ra): Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam (Peace and Blessings be upon him) was neither very tall nor short. The soles of both feet were fully fleshed. He had a large head. The joints of the bones were also large. There was a thin line of hair from the chest to the navel. When Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam (Peace and Blessings be upon him) walked, it appeared as if he was descending from a high place.

Ali (ra) says: I did not see anyone like him neither before him, nor after him.

Jaabir bin Samurah (ra) reports: I saw the Seal of Prophethood of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam (Peace and Blessings be upon him) between his two shoulders, which was like a red tumour (protruding flesh), the size of which was like that of a pigeon's egg.

Abu Hurayrah (ra) says: I did not see anyone more handsome than Rasulullah (saw). It was as if the brightness of the sun had shone from his mubaarak face. I did not see anyone walk faster than him, as if the earth folded for him. A few moments ago he would be here, and then there. We found it difficult to keep pace when we walked with him, and he walked at his normal pace.

I remained in the service of RasulAllah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam (Peace and Blessings be upon him) for ten years. He never once told me 'Oof'. When I did something, he never asked me, why did you do so? When I did not do a certain task, he never asked me why I did not do it. RasulAllah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam (Peace and Blessings be upon him) had the best character among all people and also possessed the most excellent features, so much so, that I never felt a silk cloth, nor pure silk, nor any other thing softer than the palm of RasulAllah (saw). Nor did I smell any musk or any other fragrance, more sweet smelling than the sweat of RasulAllah (saw). Anas bin Maalik (ra)
