life of Prophet
If the question was raised and the question was asked, during this talk, that, Can one of you describe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to me, who is here that can describe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam What did he look like? And when you when you are able to give the answer, this raises a serious question about our love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our dedication in wanting to follow Him, because we have his description, so clear as if he was in front of us, but yet we do not know. So I thought, insha Allah, that it will be so beneficial that before we spoke about a day in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we spoke about his
appearance. Firstly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was neither very tall nor very short, who was of medium stature, but a medical which Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him that when he was in the presence of those totally then him, then he would appear to be taller than them. That would be the Oh, the the function of the Prophet solarium sort of at the time, he would just seem to be totally This is how we would appear. But when you would see him alone, he would be it would seem of medium height, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had very wavy hair, he was not a very curly, no, very strict. But as the prophets of Allah, Allah tells us, the base of things are those that are
in the middle, the middle path, and we find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had all of that the base, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was neither at any extreme, but always in the middle, even his appearance, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had a prominent forehead, or a broad forehead and a prominent nose. The prophet SAW artisans, he would be either at his ear, nose, and certain times, just on his on his shoulders, we find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he should take care of his hair. And he used to own it every second day, and he would brush it and look at it. And we know from this channel, I hope that you will be able to come and present
something to you, perhaps it goes fall coat or some lectures as a brilliant course about the way a husband needs to be with his wife. And we're talking about the rights we're talking about. We're talking about the kind of character you're supposed to display with your spouse. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to use the miswak before entering his home. Why? Because when you enter your home, you want to kiss your wife, and you want to make sure that you breathe, listen to this video carefully. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so concerned about this, that he wanted to be the best for his wife in everything. So he made sure that he was the best for
her and at all times.
They used to ask him why do you like to dress so well? Why do you Why are you so particular about your clothing and about your appearance? This is I like to be beautiful for my wife, as I like her to be beautiful for me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a very wide mouth, and he had a small gap between these two front teeth. Just a quick question. Should we knowing this? Go to the dentist tomorrow? Should we know he that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a gap between his two front teeth? Should we all visit the dentist so that we if we do not have a gap between our two front teeth, should we go for this? And the answer is no. The prophets of the lower eyelid was
said of a loss of one this is the way Allah subhanho wa Taala created him and it is not for me and for you to follow him in that we will talk about what we need to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Do you find that the prophets Allah It was a very, very broad shoulders and for the brothers insha Allah you do not have broad shoulders, the gyms are open Alhamdulillah right. And we find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a flat chest and a flat stomach. So for our brothers who are more pregnant than the wives, my advice to you is that you hit the gym insha Allah.
And we'll speak about the Prophet sallallahu ohsms men in eating and drinking a little bit later. But from this we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a very fit man. It was broad shoulders. He had a flat chest and a flat stomach was an overweight neither was he obese. And we find that the prophet SAW loss and did everything in moderation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a big beard.
And in this beard, and in his head, he had no more than 20 white hairs. Imagine at the age of 63, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had very little gray hair. And the most gay he had was in these haze over here under the lower lip and on his temples, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I want to complete this now in sha Allah and say that he had very, very, his manner of walking was a walking of purpose. And the reason why I don't talk about anything else, and I'm gonna stop here in sha Allah, is to show us that these times when the Muslims are going through so many difficulties, we need to show purpose and determination and the Prophet sallallahu It was one of the
ways in which he showed that was in the manner in which he walked. You cannot walk as a man that was depressed
Did you work as a meth head, and even though we had the weight of the world and the responsibility on his shoulders, even at that time he walked as someone coming down from a slope. For those of you that have gone hiking, you know what I'm talking about walking down the mountain, you walking with purpose coming down, you know, as if no one's going to stop you. So this is in a brief description, the description of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and pathologically I should say, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a white complexion mixed with some redness or brown. So the Prophet salado, completely white, nor was he completely Brown. But as some of the narrator's say he
had somebody This is
