We all know the famous saying of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) about marrying a woman for her beauty, status, wealth and piety. We know that piety is the most important. We all say, wealth and status doesn’t matter that much. What about beauty? His or her appearance? I’m going to be straight up with you guys, beauty matters for me. Beauty matters for everyone. It’s human nature! Stop denying it.
I’m sure you know people that say, “oh I don’t care about looks”, and your like “yeah right”. Maybe your that person that says that. Be honest with yourself and accept this. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was smart when he said that. He knows us. He knows that we are attracted to beautiful creations, whether it would be flowers, scents, food or people. We attract to things. That’s just how it is.
A successful marriage can’t succeed without attraction between the husband and wife. Remember, piety comes first.
Why did I post this? My friends and I were having this discussion and they realized that at first they had the attitude of ‘looks don’t matter’, but then they came to there senses and realized that it does. So maybe someone will read this and stop playing games with minds and start being real with themselves.
Oh yeah. One more thing. Beauty doesn’t necessarily mean outer appearance. Beauty is a general term and different people are attracted to different things.
