Everywhere we are at home, school, work or outdoors, we see ads. Perfect people. People with physical beauty beyond what is normal. Most of us know how detrimental it is for most of us to strive for something that is not achievable. Everyone has got one part of their physical appearance they would want to beautify. For some people go to the extreme when it comes to this and take a drastic attempt by taking a plastic operation. Some people meet many people who behave rudely towards them. Mostly it is because they are different. A difference that makes them stand out in the crowd. Many outsiders think that the only way they can find acceptance in this society is if they have a perfect body. Good conduct/character are impressions that last. Not mere the looks. Good looks might get you married to a beautiful Muslimah. Only your character, conduct would decide whether you`ll keep her for the rest of the life. The same goes for any job application or an election.
An organization in UK has wanted to make sure that children with disabilities also can see that perfect is not the goal. They have made dolls with disabilities for children who are different. This is beautiful. Makes it easier for the child to accept himself for who he /she is. It is very important that children are encouraged to be who they are, instead of trying to become like everyone else and lose themselves in the attempt. They are already one in a 7,4 billion people worlds population. Why do they feel a need to be like everyone else, when there is only one of them. They are unique. Their different-ness should be valued and treasured. Allah has a perfect plan in how He wants his worshippers to be. He does not make mistakes. May Allah help us create a community where everyone are accepted like they are. Aameen.
