Inner Beauty

November 24, 2012 - 3 minutes read



Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Outer beauty has effect on someone for a little period of time but the influence of inner beauty becomes inspiration for someone. It is the quality which is scarce in our contemporary social society but still inner beauty is cherished immensely. With inner beauty, one can even win the hearts of his enemies. Markus Zusak said, “Sometimes people are beautiful not in looks. Not in what they say, just in what they are.” Outer beauty is not long lasting because it changes chronologically it does not remain same throughout the life while inner beauty remains hidden in our soul till resurrection. No matter how good our presentation is, Allah always judges us by our intentions. History of the world is replete with such characters that impressed a great number of people by their inner beauty and good character.

The base for character building is not to have attractive features but to possess a clean soul with keeping intentions of goodwill for others. This world don’t clap for the person who has outer beauty but the one having inner beauty (skills, talent, abilities, good character, honesty) for it can awe the whole world and earn fame. Beloved relations are based on trust, sincerity, and respect and beliefs not on beauty, arrogance and egotism. The great writers, who had died hundreds of decades ago, are still remembered not owing to their external beauty but because of their inspirational sayings which have hidden messages and when divulged, their inner beauty is known. John Green said “That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me that people want to be around someone because they are pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on colour instead of taste.”

Inner beauty never deceives you neither leaves you with a bitter lesson but it always has a supportive character in your life. Be nice to everyone so that your critics turn into admirers. Our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) had laid a great impact on thousands of individuals because of his good virtues and inner beauty. Everybody needs self-satisfaction to live a peaceful life which cannot be achieved by outer beauty but only the inner beauty can bring contentment to one’s life. So, start living with a pure heart and inspire the surrounding by your virtuous deeds not with your pretty looks.
