The Makeup of The Sahabiyaat.

All praise is due to Allah swt, Lord of both the worlds and may His peace and blessings be upon his final Prophet and Messenger, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

I received this a while back. Subhanallah! It is such a beautiful reminder, if only we take heed.

Not once did we see their faces,
Not once did we hear their voices,
But when we read about them, we develope such love for them & there is such beauty in our eyes for them.

Subhan’Allah!

These are the Sahaabiyat [Women Companions of The Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam].

Ever wondered how they looked? We can only be amazed.

These are such people who embody such amazing definition of “beauty”, for they define beauty not by looks but on their worship & love for Allah Azza Wa Jal.

Indeed, whenever we remember or we are reminded by the characteristics of such beautiful women, we can not utter any other word but Subhan’Allah, how great was their faith!

It is but true that not one picture of a female companion of the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam exist nowadays, but look at how many people love & get inspired by these very women. Allahu’akbar!

They were beautiful yet no lip colour was present on their lips, rather such lips were moistened by the remembrance of Allah Azza Wa Jal.

They were beautiful yet no colour was present at their eyes, rather such eyes were always pouring tears for being grateful to Allah Azza Wa Jal.

They were beautiful yet no brand or attractive colours wrapped their bodies, rather such bodies were covered with the highest level of haya [modesty].

They were beautiful yet no earrings were present on their ears, rather such ears were only attached to listening to the words of Allah Azza Wa Jal & the sayings of the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi aihi Wassalaam.

They were beautiful yet no foundation ever touched their faces, rather such faces were given such radiance for always putting their heads to prostrate in obedience to Allah Azza Wa Jal.

They were beautiful.

They were Muslims.

They were from the Ummah of The Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.

They were like you, O my dear sister in Islam!

They were women of Islam & so are you, so what makes you think that these makeup things would define your beauty?

My dear sister, no lip colour can be better than the remembrance of Allah, no branded clothes can be more beautiful that the clothes of modesty.

O my dear sister! Islam raised your status! Islam raised your status! Islam raised your status! Islam raised your status! Islam raised your status!

You do not need these things to make yourself beautiful. Allah Azza Wa Jal made you and for that alone, you are most beautiful. Remember to thank Him, Remember your purpose! Once Allah Azza Wa Jal loves you, He makes those who love Him love you too. Please Allah! Please Allah! Please Allah!

Be inspired with these Sahaabiyat. These are the women we should look up to, not those women whom we see clothed yet not clothed on television, or those women who pose and get photographed everywhere. There is no need to post a picture of you too! Remember it is not your face that will be remembered after you die, it would be your character &  how you lived your life in accordance to your faith.

This article also goes out to those brothers who are married, who have sisters, who have daughters, cousins, nieces, granddaughters & of course mothers.

Let us raise quality rather than quantity.

And we pray that Allah Azza Wa Jal makes us realize how much beauty there is in worshipping Him & dedicating our lives in service of Him.
Ameen.

All praise is due to Allah the Almighty at the beginning and at the end.

May you be rewarded for visiting my page and may we all benefit. Ameen.

The Katibah.

    Well said, Ma Sha Allah.

    About time somebody addressed the issue, we need more of these articles please.

    It’s not just sisters to blame though- men are equally responsible. And a lack of Ghayrat / Gheerah doesn’t really help!

    Allah guide us all. Ameem
