Shama-il Tirmidhi Chapter 55, Hadith Number 5 (393).

Yazeed Al Faarisi bin Hurmuz, who was a calligrapher of the Qur-aan, once saw Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam in his dream during the time of Ibn ‘Abbaas Radiyallahu ‘Anhu. He related his dream to Ibn ‘Abbaas. Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam used to say that the shaytaan cannot imitate him. That person who has seen him in a dream has really seen him’. After mentioning this he asked: ‘Can you describe this person whom you have seen in your dream?’. I replied: ‘Yes, I can, I will describe to you a man whose body and height were of a medium stature. He had a wheat-coloured complexion with a bit of whiteness in it. Eyes like those that had kuhl on them. A smiling face. Beautiful and round face. A compact beard which surrounded his mubaarak face, and spread on the fore-portion of the chest”. ‘Awf ibn Abl Jamilah, a narrator of this hadith says: “I do not remember what other feature besides these, my ustaadh Yazeed, who is a narrator of this hadith, described”. Ibn ‘Abbaas Radiyallahu ‘Anhu said: “If you had seen him while being awake, you would not have been able to describe him any further”.

As this has been mentioned at the beginning of the book, here too the noble features of Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam have been described in the same manner.
