Mohammed Ibn Maslamah was called the MOST HANDSOME of the ARABS

Sahih Muslim 1801

On the authority of Amroo who heard  Jabir saying that the Messenger of Allah prayers and Allah’s peace be upon him said:

Who will deal with Ka’b b. Ashraf? He has cast aspersions about Allah, and His Messenger. Muhammad Ibn Maslama said: Messenger of Allah, Do you want me to kill him? He said: Yes. He said: Permit me to talk. He said: Talk. So, Muhammad Ibn. Maslama came to Ka’b and spoke to him, and reminded him what they had between them and said: This man wants charity and this has put us to a great hardship. When be heard this, Ka’b said: By God, you will be put to more trouble by him. Muhammad Ibn Maslama said: No doubt, now we have become his followers and we do not like to forsake him until we see what turn his affairs will take. I want that you should give me a loan. He said: What will you mortgage? He said: What do you want? He said: Pledge me your women. He said: You are the most handsome of the Arabs; should we pledge our women to you? He said: Pledge me your children. He said: The son of one of us may abuse us saying that he was pledged for two wasqs of dates.However, we can pledge you (cur) weapons. He said: All right. Then Muhammad Ibn Maslama promised that he would come to him with Harith, Abu ‘Abs b. Jabr and Abbad b. Bishr. So they came and called upon him at night. He came down to them. Sufyan says that all the narrators except ‘Amr have stated that his wife said: I hear a voice which sounds like the voice of murder. He said: It is only Muhammad Ibn Maslama and his foster-brother, Abu Na’ila. When a noble is called at night even if he is to be pierced with a spear, he should respond to the call. Muhammad said to his companions: As he comes down, I will extend my hands towards his head and when I hold him fast, you should do your job. So when he came down and he was holding his cloak under his arm, they said to him: We sense from you a very beautiful scent. He said: Yes, I have with me a woman who is the most scented of the women of Arabia. He said: Allow me to smell. He said: Yes, you may smell. So he caught it and smelt. Then he said: Allow me to do so (once again). He then held his head fast and said to his companions: Do your job. And they killed him.
