Prophet’s Beauty

The Prophet’s ﷺ wife Aisha رضي الله عنها is reported to have quoted the following two lines of poetry about the Prophet’s ﷺ beauty, based on the Qur’anic story of Yusuf عليه السلام and the vizier’s wife, Zulaykha, whose friends cut their hands because they were mesmerized by his beauty:

If only the friends of Zulaykha would see his forehead
They would cut their necks rather than their hands
