It is quite common these days, that people are attracted to others whom has a beautiful appearance. I guess a lot of young people get confused about what real beauty is. Generations get influenced by the media, the commercials, movies, tv-serials, where people with perfect body`s are picturing a scenario that is no-where close to reality. Women with tons of make-up and thin as they have never eaten showing a life where you will be happy if you get the man you have fall in love with. Their fairytale stops when they get married, not giving an accurate picture of life after marriage. This is not true love, and this is not real beauty.
Our Prophet Muhammad pbuh, has shown us what real beauty is, through his pbuh soul, conduct and character. He had such a genuine care for people, and was such a humble person with strong bashfulness, that people couldn`t help themselves from loving him pbuh. He pbuh lived a simple life, and treated people so kindly that even his enemies accepted his pbuh message. He was of course beautiful also, but it was his character and simplicity people fell in love with, and still admire and adore. His pbuh kindness to animals. His pbuh treatment of elders. His pbuh nature of reconciliations, of forgiving even the people whom had hurt his pbuh dearest ones. Even people whom wheren`t on his pbuh religion, admired him and still do, for such and amazing character he pbuh has. He pbuh has shown us that is possible to live the Quran. It is through his manners and genuineness that he has won so many hearts ❤ Subhan Allah.
I can understand that young people fall in love with appearance. Though the wiser and elder they get, the more they realize that real beauty is the conduct, not the outside, but the inside. After you marry a person, it is the character you are going to live with for the rest of your life. If the same attractive person has a less good conduct, than imagine yourself whether you are going to live a harmonious life or not.
After all what are you attracted to? Kindness? Manners? Morals? I think that people whom are genuinely kind and treat their loved ones fairly and with respect even when no one is watching them, them being younger or elder, than that is beautiful. People whom follow the sunnah and aren`t embarrassed to go out with their parents, that is beautiful. Being nice to children, even when it won`t give you any personal advantage, but just because that is how our Prophet pbuh was, or it is the right thing to do, that is beautiful. It is very important that we understand what real beauty is, before we get into the bond of marriage. If beauty is our body, what about those people whom has died. We are not our body, we are our soul. The believing and righteous souls will live an eternal life in Paradise. May Allah make us of those and increase the beauty of our souls, so that we are reunited in Jannah with the people we love for the sake of Allah. Ameen summa ameen.
