A fabrication on the beauty of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)


What is the authenticity of this narration?

هبط علي جبريل فقال يا محمد إن الله يقرأ عليك السلام ويقول حبيبي إني كسوت حسن يوسف من نور الكرسي وكسوت حسن وجهك من نور عرشي وما خلقت خلقا أحسن منك يا محمد



The Muhaddithun have declared this Hadith a fabrication. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Tanzihush  Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 325)



Jibril (‘alayhis salam) once descended and said, ‘O Muhammad! Allah conveys his greetings and says, ‘O My beloved! I granted Yusuf beauty from the nur of the Kursi and I granted you the beauty of your face from the nur of my ‘Arsh [throne]. I have not created anything more beautiful than you O Muhammad.”


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
