📖Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3636
Narrated Abu Ishaq: “A man asked Al-Bara: ‘Was the face of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) like a sword?’ He said: ‘No, like the moon.'”
- This hadith is a conversation between Abu Ishaq and Al-Bara about the appearance of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Abu Ishaq asked Al-Bara if the face of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was like a sword, perhaps referring to its sharpness or angularity. However, Al-Bara replied that the face of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was not like a sword but rather like the moon. The moon is traditionally seen as a symbol of beauty and brightness, and this comparison suggests that the face of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was also beautiful and radiant. Overall, this hadith provides a glimpse into the physical appearance of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and emphasizes his beauty and radiance, as well as his importance as a religious and spiritual leader.
