Hadith on Muhammad: The Prophet more handsome than the moon

Jabir ibn Samurah reported: I saw the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, on a clear night while he was wearing a red cloak. I turned my sight between him and the moon and, to me, he was more handsome and beautiful than the moon.
