Rasoolullah’s (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) Manner of Walking

Rasoolullah’s (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) manner of walking has been described as follows:

• He would raise his feet robustly. In other words, he would not drag his feet when walking.

• He would place his feet stooped.

• He walked humbly.

• His motion would resemble descending from a higher ground to lower ground.

The features described of Nabi Kareem’s (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) walking are volitional. It is, therefore, meritorious and encouraged to imitate Rasoolullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam in these volitional attributes.

The blessed feet of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) were smooth and clean. His feet were not rough, and dirt was not attracted to them. On account of being glossy, water would completely flow off them.
