Al-Shama’il al-Muhammadiyya (‘The Sublime Qualities of the Prophet Muhammad ?’) is the most famous collection of narrations detailing the moral, physical and spiritual perfections of the Prophet Muhammad ?. Commonly referred to as ‘The Shama’il’ and compiled by the prolific Imam al-Tirmidhi, may Allah be pleased with him, this perennial masterpiece connects hearts to the Prophet’s blessed being ?.
The Shama’il generously invites us to experience the most detailed and exquisite qualities of the message-bearer—the Prophet Muhammad ?. This knowledge fundamentally alters, informs, and orients our understanding of the Message he brought. Knowing the Shama’il is a critical pre-requisite to properly understanding Islam in general and the Prophet’s life (Sira) in particular; his beautiful appearance, lifestyle and character provide the ultimate context for developing a deep, holistic appreciation of the Message and the Messenger at the same time. Without understanding the Shama’il, we’re likely to read Islam and the Prophet’s life through the lenses of our own socially-conditioned impressions and assumptions. Instead, the Shama’il leaves a profound and indelible impression that spiritually empowers us to apply Islam to our lives.

The Shama’il offers us tastes of delight and joy, and most importantly, engenders sincere love of Allah and His Messenger ? in our hearts. To spend time with the Shama’il is to praise Allah and remember Him, for it is He who endows His beloved ? with beautiful form and unparalleled character.
Understanding the Shama’il is absolutely critical to any proper understanding of Islam, for it details the qualities of the message-bearer, which fundamentally alters how we understand the message he brought.
