The Noble Features of Rasulullah SAW 113

Sa'eed Jariri RA says:

"I heard Abu Tufayl (RA) say: "There is no one left on the face of this Earth, besides me who had seen Rasulullah (SAW)." I asked him to describe to me the noble features of Rasulullah (SAW). He said: "Rasulullah (SAW) had a white complexion, which was slightly reddish, and had a medium sized body."

Abu Tufayl RA was the last one among the Sahabah RA to pass away. He died in the year 110 Hijri. That is why he said, that there was no one left besides him who had seen Rasulullah SAW. The Ulama say that he used the phrase "face of the earth" because the Prophet 'Isa AS is also from the ones who had seen Rasulullah SAW, and is present in the skies (heavens).
