Beauty and Purity


Tuesday, 25 September 2012 14:53

The fashion world of today has a very narrow definition of beauty. It restricts beauty to one’s dressing and to the fake facial makeup. The reality is that these superficial things have nothing to do with beauty. The inner and outer beauty has been taught to us by Islam.

Among the aspects of inner beauty, which shines out in a person’s life, is to clean the heart of pride, jealousy, and greed. All the outer beauty of a woman will be insignificant if her tongue is loose and wicked, if she loses her temper all the time or her heart is full of ill – feelings and hatred. The mere sight of her, despite her striking outer beauty, will provoke hatred in the hearts of those around her. Islam alone teaches us real beauty and purity, where the inside and outside are both beautified with real values.

Islam even teaches us how to preserve our beauty. If Allah Ta’ala has favoured one with natural outer beauty, then the best way of expressing gratitude is to conceal this beauty from the eyes of all strange men. To make a public display of one’s beauty is the height of ingratitude for this gift.

Four Steps to Rectify a Wrong


Wednesday, 19 September 2012 07:06

When you see a wrong: 

Step One: Do not lose our temper. The moment we lose our temper, we cannot think correctly and cannot say the right things. Thus we should learn to control our temper. 

Step Two: Be careful of our language. Do not say such words that will hurt the person. Often in anger we speak out our mind but later on we regret over our words. 

Step Three: Explain to the person the wrong that he/she has done. Generally we become angry but we do not explain the mistake to the person. 

Step Four: Give the person a solution, provide an alternative. Explain to the person what should be done and how it should be done in future. 

After adopting these four simple steps in rectifying a wrong, Insha-Allah with the command of Allah Ta’ala, only good will come out of it. At all times our gaze and trust should be on the mercy of Allah Ta’ala.


Divine Wisdom


Tuesday, 18 September 2012 16:31

There is divine wisdom in every decision of Allah Ta’ala. Our unhappiness and complain upon the occurrences in our life is due to our failure in understanding the divine wisdom of Allah Ta’ala. For instance Allah Ta’ala grants some couples only girls while others have only boys. Both couples are unhappy and tend to complain. This is due to our nature of desiring that which we do not have instead of appreciating that which we have. Yet Allah Ta’ala’s decision for us is filled with wisdom.
