Do I know good? Haram haram? What does Islam say about wanting to look good? Any of that? Is something natural? I think most people most of us want to look good. But what does Islam teaches about this? One of the companions, as the Prophet SAW Selim, when he heard him tell him that the person who has Kibito who has arrogance in his heart, he will not enter the agenda, he said, but someone likes to have nice clothes and nice shoes. He said that indeed, Allah is Jimmy was beautiful, he loves beauty. So there's nothing wrong with that. But we benefit from this hadith, the one who has the arrogance in his heart and is the problem. So as long as it doesn't lead to

00:00:38--> 00:00:59

arrogance, we want to look good. We want to dress good, but doesn't lead to arrogance. There's nothing wrong with that. And Scholten. Also it shouldn't lead us to do extravagant things, especially when it comes to the sisters. Sisters. For example, when it comes to their makeup, it comes to wear haram types of clothing was built on some hijab, the sisters who put haram elements into their hijab, so they look good for others

00:01:00--> 00:01:35

putting perfume on so they smell good for others. All of these are haram elements and, and major sense that they fall into an order to do good for others. So if you wanted to look good lead you to haram, you stay away from that, but if it's an added thing, we have someone who has, you know, some fashion you look good, then there's nothing wrong with that to have that.

Who does Xena TOCOM and the coolie masjid, you need to take your adornments meaning to look good when you go to the menu when you go to pray and stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala and

if we're going to the masjid five times a day, then that means at all times we need to be looking good. And you're looking at the Sunnah of the process that I'm taking care of himself and how he would grow and all of this also that's an example when you look even at our scholars and how they weren't it came to looking good and being you know presentable. And he went into the representing the end of the represents the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah, you'll find many who had a type of Zulu that didn't really don't care how they dress and how they looked. But honestly when you see someone we saw from you know, from the scholars who taught us the ones you know what the Christmas

00:02:06--> 00:02:42

stoves they weren't being extravagant, they weren't wasting money, but they look good, you know, freshly ironed, freshly cleaned, it has an impact. I'm coming to teach you what Allah and the messenger so as Adam said, and I'm looking good, then this is the Sunnah or the way of the great Imam you ematic Rahim Allah Tala, when he used to go to his Mejlis to teach the hadith of our beloved prophet Sallallahu sallam, he still good have very nice dogs on and he would put the whole you know, he had the pure perfume on himself, and he will do the borehole in his matchless and make sure those measures smelled good as he would sit down and speak about the hadith of our beloved
