Book 05 – Appearing Of The White Hair Of Prophet of Allah ﷺ

by I Need Allah


Qatadah R.A. reports:
“I asked Anas R.A., ‘Did Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) dye his hair?'” He replied: “The hair of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) did not reach such a stage where one would use a dye; however Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) did have a few white hairs on his temples, on the other hand, Abu Bakr R.A. dyed his hair with Hina and Katm.”

Ibne Abbas R.A. reports:
“Abu Bakr R.A. once said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, you have become old’. (What is the reason? Due to this mild and soft temperament, he ought to be young, and also according to his age he could be still called young). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) replied: “The recitation of Surahs Hud, Waaqiah, Mursalat, Amma, and Kuwwirah has made me old'”.

Abu Rimtha Taymi R.A. says:
“I went with my son to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam). (Probably he had not to see Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) before). When I saw him I said to myself immediately, ‘This is the true messenger of Allah’. At that time Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi wasallam) was wearing two pieces of green clothing. (His lungi-sarong, waist-wrap and shawl were both green). On a few hairs, there were signs of old age, but those hair were red”.
