Amazing, Sallu `Ala al-Habib!
God says: Its oil almost glows forth, though no fire hath touched it. (Qur’an 24:25)
The scholars say that one of the meanings of this phrase from the famous Verse of Light is that the physical beauty of the Messenger of God (God bless him and give him peace) was of such intensity that one could be guided to Islam simply by looking upon him, without needing to hear the message he brought.
sayyiduna abdul muttalib made a vow to Allah that if Allah gave him 10 sons; he would give them all in His way and they would serve Him and if i remember correctly, find the original foundations of the ka'aba.
Allah gave him 10 sons and all were very beautiful. abdul muttalib was then ordered to sacrifice the bost beloved of them. the whole of makka agreed that abdullah was the most beautiful of the 10.
it so happened that instead of sacrificing abdullah, on 2-3 occasions he sacrificed camels in his stead. i think 100 camels were sacrificed in total.
this is why rasulAllah sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam said: i am from the 2 zabeeh's [ismayil 'alaihis salam and abdullah radiyAllahu ta'ala anhu].
the lineage of rasulAllah sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam - from adam 'alaihis salam to abdullah radiyAllahu ta'ala anhu - were the purest in each generation. there have always been at least 7 believers at any time and the if the purest - according to the hadith - are the prophet's family; then they have all been believers.
Our Prophet's noble father was known as the Joseph of his time. He was the most handsomest of men, with unimaginable physical beauty and magnificence. Prince he was. And not just him, also Hadhrat 'Abd al-MuTTalib.
When Abraha saw them enter his tent, he rose in awe at their beauty and magnificence, and sat Hadhrat 'Abd al-MuTTalib on his seating, and himself sat on the ground. After all, the real king, the Noble grand-father of our Habeeb salAllaho 'alaihi wa alihi wa salam should be on the top, and the likes of Abraha should be on the ground, which Abraha understood immediately.
So, how beautiful, handsome was our Habeeb salAllaho 'alaihi wa alihi wa salam? I cannot imagine.
