Allaah is Beautiful and He loves Beauty – Few Benefits from this Hadeeth’ By Imaam Ibnul qayyim

”Indeed Allaah is beautiful and He loves beauty”.
[Saheeh Muslim 131]

The intent behind this noble Hadeeth is that it combines two great principles: Firstly, ‘Knowledge and Awareness’ and secondly ‘(Good) Behaviour’.

To worship Allaah (alone) in a beautiful manner through statements, deeds and manners (i.e. those legislated by Allaah and His Messenger). Allaah loves that the slave beautifies his tongue with truthfulness, his heart with sincerity to (Allaah), love (of Allaah), turning in repentance to Allaah, reliance on (Allaah) and obedience to Allaah by way of one’s limbs.
