According to a Hadith, God is a beauty and is a lover of beauty. This article we’ll briefly look at instances of beauty found in the Quran and look at what God finds beautiful.
Within Islam, Muslims are always looking for ways to pay tribute to Allah and to praise Allah through different words and quotes. There are a variety of Islamic words can be used in greeting people to plead for assistance from Allah and to extol his virtues. One of these Islamic word is the Mashallah Tabarakallah. This covers both physical as well as spiritual beauty.
Beauty in Islam according to Quran
The way that linguists define beauty differs. In English when we talk about beauty typically, we mean physical beauty like an attractive face, gorgeous house, stunning car, stunning handicraft and so on. In contrast it is in the Quran aside from being a reference to physical beauty, the term jam is “l” (jamyl) (also known as beauty) usually refers to spiritual and abstract concepts. For instance in the Quran refers to “beautiful patience,” “beautiful forgiveness,” and the list goes on.
Patience as an example Of Beauty In Islam
The ability to remain calm in the face of tough situations and challenges is an indication of the power of one’s character and soul. A soul that is so vast that it takes all the great things within itself, to say, and doesn’t be frightened or shake.
There are times when a person appears calm, but then shatters this by using words that display the lack of gratitude and patience. But, those with good faith and will are those who’s patience is not exhaust in these situations. And who are not quick to speak phrases that convey ingratitude doubt, anger, and anger. They have “beautiful patience”.
Forgiveness is an instance Beauty in Islam
We did not make the heavens, the earth and all that lies between them, unless we have a dazzling wisdom. In fact, the time for the end of the world is bound to arrive. Therefore, be patient and show forgiveness and tolerance.
In a story, Ali b. Abi Talib (peace be with him) states the meaning of the word safhun jamil (SfHun Jmyl) (also known as beautiful pardon) is a reference to pardoning without fault.
The condition for this is to be mindful when confronting the words of those around you and their retribution with these words, and also their insults such as saying he is a magician insane poet, and saying that the Quran that he reinterpreted to be an ancient myth. The Prophet also has to cut off relationships and to renounce them with kindness.
