The Noble Features of Rasulullah (SAW)

Hadith No: 4

Narrated: Bara bin Azib
"I never seen someone with long hair and red clothing more handsome than Rasullullah (Peace and Blessings be upon him). His hair reached his shoulders. The portion between his two shoulders was wide. He was neither very tall nor very short".

Commentary

The description of the hair of Sayyidina Rasullullah (Peace and Blessings be upon him) in this hadeeth is different one mentioned before. There it is stated that his hair reached his ear-lobes. In reality there is no difference between the two hadeeth, as the hair does not remain the same length but grows. Sometimes the hair was shortened, sometimes longer hair was kept.
