“Mine eye has not beheld one as beautiful as you

Nor has a woman ever given birth to such perfection of form”

Sayyidna Hassan Ibn Thabit (ra)

“The Prophet’s complete beauty has not been fully manifested, for if it was disclosed to us in full, our eyes would be unable to behold him. The similes, therefore, that are used to describe him are only for the sake of approximating and drawing similitudes, for the Prophet’s essence is far too exquisite and his honor is far loftier.”

Imam al-Qurtubi

See Glimpses of Prophetic Beauty for some wonderfully detailed accounts.
