The two Hadiths give a physical description of Jesus. Jesus has been described as Asmar in the first Hadith, which means yellowish-brown, not totally brown or totally white, but a combination of yellow and light brown. The wording of the second Hadith is A’damun, which means whitish-red. This has been explained by Imam Zarqani, who says that Jesus’ original colour was yellowish-white, which would turn to red if he was angry or had taken a bath in hot water etc.
