The Muhammadan Attributes

The shama'il literature describing the Prophet's appearance, character and behavior is profuse and has always been granted major importance in Islam, for it serves two most important functions: inwardly, it increases love in the heart and attachment to the Prophet (s- God's peace and blessings upon h im), while outwardly it provides the details of the model for his community to emulate in their quest for perfection.  This literature brings the Prophet's personality to life, allowing one to form a mental picture of him, thus complementing the sira (biographical) narratives.
