(116) HADITH 1
Hazrat Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu says, "I did not see anyone more
handsome as Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihe wasallam. It was as if the brightness
of the sun had shone from his auspicious face. I did not see anyone walk
faster than him, as if the earth folded for him. A few moments ago he would
be here, and then there. We found it difficult to keep pace when we walked
with him, and he walked at his normal pace."
That means we could only with effort keep up with his normal pace walking.

on the ground like women do. When he walked, because of the speed and force
of the legs, it seemed as if he was descending from a high place".
