Our Prophet’s صلى الله عليه وسلم ḥadīth are good, all of the ḥadīth are beautiful. He صلى الله عليه وسلم said Allāh جل جلاله doesn’t like arrogance. He صلى الله عليه وسلم doesn’t like pride. Ṣaḥābahs asked, they wanted to know what is arrogance? “We like wearing nice clothes. We like them to be clean too. We love good things”. Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم replied “Allāh جل جلاله is Beautiful. He جل جلاله likes beauty. Things are not from arrogance. They are the favours of Allāh جل جلاله
Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla created everything beautiful. But people made it ugly with their bad character . He جل جلاله likes everything beautiful. He جل جلاله doesn’t like those ugly things. He Allāh created this world in the best shape. Mankind made it ugly with their sins and bad manners. They spread ugliness everywhere whereas Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla created it beautiful. People in old times used to pay attention to this. Therefore, everything they did had some fineness and beauty. Though there was not such abundance as there is now, people built their small houses nicely. Now they build ugly homes from concrete. When they live in them, their ugliness reflects itself. And the ugliest thing is arrogance. Wearing nice clothes is not arrogance but feeling proud of wearing them is ugly. Otherwise, Allāh جل جلاله made everything ḥalāl for us. Live nicely, be with the good ones and Allāh جل جلاله will love you.
As we said, beauty is to obey Allāh’s جل جلاله orders and to take care of the things Allāh جل جلاله created. You should value everything. As Allāh جل جلاله created these beautiful things, you should say, “If Allāh جل جلاله loves beauty, we shall love it too.” May Allāh جل جلاله give all of us good manners, good attributes and adab, in shā’a Llāh. May He جل جلاله keep us away from such ugly attributes, in shā’a Llāh.
Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم saying his ḥadīth, his talking – we say ḥadīth – all nice all full of wisdom. We are learning every good thing from Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. Because Qur’ān also big miracle. After Qur’ān, to translate to Qur’ān for ummah, there is ḥadīth – also to saying what to do, what not to do. And one of this ḥadīth it is very nice. He صلى الله عليه وسلم was saying “Allāh He جل جلاله don’t like to pride. Proude pride? Pride. And ṣaḥābah who Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم saying, “who has pride in his heart he will suffer. Before going to clean his heart, he must be in hell. Cannot go first to Jannah.” And ṣaḥābah was afraid and asking “O Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم we are like to dress nice dress, to eat good Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم saying his ḥadīth, his talking – we say ḥadīth – all nice all full of wisdom. We are learning every good thing from Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. How we can finish [end up]?” Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم saying, “No this is not pride. Allāh جل جلاله Beautiful and He جل جلاله like beautiful – inna Llāha jamīl yuḥibbu l-jamāl.
He جل جلاله likes beauty. Because everything He جل جلاله create – beautiful, nice, good but human being with their bad deeds and their bad attributes and what worst thing they do they make whole this world ugly. And most ugly thing – pride. Pride it is the most ugly thing but also what they are doing from sin they are affecting nice thing become ugly. Because what Allāh جل جلاله create it was enough for whole creature but shayṭān make this people to be destroying all beauty. Old time people they was looking after this. Even their life was more humble but they have nice house. Inside house, around house also they was looking for nice thing. Not like now, now people they are only found with ugly thing. Like the most ugly thing concrete. And it is, subḥāna Llāh, in last century they discover this bad material and whole it is the essence of uglier thing. Especially in when Communist place when after Communist we was way going with Mawlānā to this country and real it is very tough, very ugly, very disturbing when you see it.
And now Muslim everywhere you see even the most holiest place. You cannot see anymore Ka‘bah only you see concrete whole around. And after this you see this people going for making ‘ibādah worshipping and to get reward and they are from this, you see them put the bread, food, walking on them, throwing them making not respecting ni‘mah. All this from ugly thing. Ugly thing bring, make you to make ugly thing also, ugly doing. So Allāh جل جلاله He like beauty. We must like beauty and to be careful and to look it is not sin. Maybe many people, Muslim people as ṣaḥābah was asking, they thought to be have ugly thing it is good for Muslim. No not good. You must have good thing, you must do nice thing. You must teach your family, your where you are living to be have good. Essence to know ugly and to know good. And when you know this you will be know you are in way of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم
So Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم he coming to teach us nice good thing, in shā’a Llāh. Allāh جل جلاله help us and to know this and to be love this, in shā’a Llāh.
Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq al-Fātiḥah.
