The most beautiful woman according to the Sunnah
Fatwa No: 131467

Question

Assalamu Alaykum, According to Sunnah, prophet Muhammad pbuh had the nicest face. Did the sunnah address who was the most beautiful woman? Thank you

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His Slave and Messenger.

 

It was narrated on the authority of Al-Baraa’ ibn ‘Aazib  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him that he said: "The Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, had the most beautiful face of all people and the best conduct. He was neither very tall nor short.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

However, we do not know any evidence proving who the most beautiful woman was. Additionally, knowing this piece of information is not beneficial and not knowing it is not harmful. A Muslim should ask about things requiring actions which are beneficial to him in his religion or his life.

Allaah Knows best.
