Be Beautiful!

1) A Great Haircut

Grooming Your Hair… 90% of Beauty is a great hair cut (or grooming your hair)

Allah’s Messenger, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, said “Whoever has hair should honor it.” (Abu Dawood)

2) Smile

The most beautiful thing in a human being is their smile. Sometimes, what takes a marriage to a whole new level is pouring more smiles into it.

Abdullaah Ibn Haarith said: “I never came across a person who smiled as much as the Prophet. The Prophet regarded smiling with a brother as an act of charity.” {Tirmidhi}

3) Get New Home Clothes

We dress up when we go out, but how about dressing up at home? And for those not married, staying within Shari’ah boundaries, getting some clean new clothes is a great way to feel and look beautiful.

O ye children of Adam! We have bestowed clothing upon you to cover your shame as well as to be a beautification for you…” [Quran, A’raaf 26]

There is hijaab of the clothes, hijaab of the way one acts, hijaab of the way one conducts oneself in public, hijaab of ones voice, hijaab of ones character etc. The Hijaab is adopted to minimise the women’s beautiful attraction, hence lessening the chances of her being molested.

Beautiful Cursed Women

On the authority of ‘Abdullâh Ibn Mas’ûd – Allâh be pleased with him, who said; “May Allâh curse those women who tattoo or seek to be tattooed, those women who remove facial hair or seek it to be removed and those women who put gaps between their teeth for beautification; those who seek to change Allâh’s creation.

This reached a woman from Banî Asad who was called Umm Ya’qûb and who used to read the Qur`ân. She came to [Ibn Mas’ûd] and said, “What is this I hear from you, that you curse women who tattoo or seek to get tattooed, and those who remove facial hair and those who put gaps between their teeth for beauty, those who change Allâh’s creation?

‘Abdullâh [Ibn Mas’ûd] replied, “And why should I not curse those whom Allâh’s Messenger has cursed and those who are mentioned in Allâh’s Book?

She said, “I have read [the Qur`ân] from cover to cover and I have not seen it mentioned.

He replied, “If you had really read it [carefully] you would have found it; Allâh the Mighty and Sublime said:

And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it; and whatever he forbids you, shun it. [Al-Hashr (59):7]

The woman then said, “Well I have just seen some of this on your own wife.
