Now days big emphasis is put on the way we look and less importance is given in our inner condition.
You only have to spend little time watching TV and you get flooded with ads about hair products, slimming products, cosmetics, and other gadgets and methods of achieving eternal youth and beauty.
However less or no importance is given to the content of the object because this is how we are treated and approached (as packages/objects with no other purpose except to be sold the products and the foolish dream of remaining eternally young and beautiful).
In Islam we have to take care of appearance, health, cleanliness, neatness but we also  have to look  and pay even more attention to our inner beauty and well being…
In the very end we are not here to impress anybody . We are here to worship and obey Allah and gain our entrance to the eternal garden, Jannah, where beauty and perfection will be given as a reward by Allah(swt).
I love Islam as it is a Great Religion of Balance…

This is a lovely post, its such an important reminder for us all. Also such a beautiful hadith. Masha'Allah. Islam really does make perfect sense doesn't it, it gives true value to people and does not discriminate based on things we have no control over (such as our physical appearance).

Thanks for posting this sister.

Jazaki'Allah Kheyran sis Zarina. Of course we have no control and it is not so important as to our outer appearance. We must stop being brainwashed by the media and our peers and concentrate on what really matters. I really appreciate your comments and your contributions. Such wonderful sisters. Alhamdulillah Wa Salaam
