A Commentary on Imam al-Tirmidhi's Shama'il Muhammadiyyah, the most
famous and widely accepted work on the description of the Prophet
(sallahu alayhi wa sallam).
The Shama’il of Imām al-Tirmidhī is one of the most extensive and
celebrated works on the description and attributes of the Messenger of
Allah (PBUH). The 415 narrations were carefully selected by the great
muhaddith to craft a vivid depiction of the Prophet (PBUH). Through
this, a portrait of his blessed physical appearance, habits, worship,
daily routine, spirituality and much more is painted by those most
beloved to him: his noble companions and family members.
To aid the reader in extracting the maximum beauty and wisdom from the
narrations, we have carefully selected explanatory gems from over forty
classical and contemporary works. Some of the scholars from whom we have
taken include: Abdul Razzaq al-Badr, Ibn Hajar al-Asqalanī, Alī al-Qārī,
Al-Bajūrī, Ibn Hajar al-Haytamī, Abū Bakr ibn al-‘Arabī , Al-Nawawī, Ibn
al-Uthaymīn, Al-Ghazālī, Qadī ‘Iyyād, Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim,
Al-Shawkānī, Muhammad Amīn al-Shanqītī, Ibn Abdul Barr, Ibn Rajab,
Al-Qastalanī, Ibn Kathīr, Abdul Rahman al-Mubarakfūrī, Abū Hafs
al-Sūhrawardī, Ibn al-Jawzī, Abdul Muhsin al-Abbad, Al-Suyūtī, Hafith
al-Iraqī, Al-San’anī, Ibn Battal, Nasiruddīn al-Albānī and many more.
Ibn Kathīr said, “Scholars authored many titles on the depiction of the
Prophet (SAWS), some of which were dedicated books and some of which
were chapters in books. From the best books authored about the depiction
of the Prophet (PBUH) is the book of Abū 'Īsa, Muhammad ibn 'Īsa
al-Sulamī al-Tirmidhi, known as al-Shama'il.” [Al -Bidaya wal Nihayah
Abdul Razzaq al-Badr said, "This blessed book is from the best and most
beneficial books written about the character and depiction of the
Prophet (PBUH) and its author made it such an excellent work through his
structuring of it and the hadiths he included therein. This is the
reason why many scholars praise the book and consider it from the best
books authored about this topic."
