al-Jameel (The Beautiful One)


al-Jameel (The Beautiful One)

Al-Jameel,On the authority of Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him), the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) said:

“Anyone who has a speck of arrogance in his heart will not enter Paradise.”

Someone then remarked, “Indeed a man likes to have nice clothes and nice shoes.” The Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) then replied:

“Verily, Allaah is Jameel and He loves beauty. Arrogance is to reject the truth and to look down on the people.”

‘Abdullah bin Mas’ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Prophet (Peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) said, “He who has, in his heart, an ant’s weight of arrogance will not enter Jannah.” Someone said: “A man likes to wear beautiful clothes and shoes?” Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessing of Allaah be upon him) said, “Allah is Beautiful, He loves beauty. Arrogance means ridiculing and rejecting the Truth and despising people.”[Muslim].
