Two Blessings from the Innumerable Blessings of Allaah – [Inner and Outer Beautification]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Mercifulo, The Bestower of Mercy
Allaah (The Most High) said:
ـٰبَنِىٓ ءَادَمَ قَدۡ أَنزَلۡنَا عَلَيۡكُمۡ لِبَاسً۬ا يُوَٲرِى سَوۡءَٲتِكُمۡ وَرِيشً۬اۖ وَلِبَاسُ ٱلتَّقۡوَىٰ ذَٲلِكَ خَيۡرٌ۬ۚ ذَٲلِكَ مِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِ ٱللَّهِ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَذَّكَّرُونَ
O Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover yourselves (screen your private parts, etc.) and as an adornment, and the raiment of righteousness, that is better. Such are among the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, that they may remember (i.e. leave falsehood and follow truth). [7:26]
Allaah notified (His slaves) that the garment and adornment of Taqwah (piety) is better than wealth, outward (physical) adornment and beautification; for indeed Allaah created His slaves and beautified their outward appearances in the best of forms and beautified their inner-selves (i.e. the hearts & souls of those whom He has guided) with His guidance to the straight path. So He [bestowed] both the two adornments- adornment of the body through clothing and adornment of the heart through Taqwah; outward and inner adornment, and outer and inner perfection.
