I often wonder about the obsession that us women have regarding external beauty. I think and think again but cannot fathom the idea, is it an issue of self-consciousness or one of self confidence? Or is it because one wishes to hear compliments and thus make themselves feel better?
I suppose whatever the reasons may be, whether individual or collective; Allah knows best that which we do and why. My only advise and hope is that we Sisters can focus on our internal beauty which is not limited by age nor race nor ethnicity. And that we take this Blessed month (well…what remains of it 😦 ) and try to better ourselves, maybe then external beauty will not matter so much, because our hearts will be well and truly clean.
If I don’t get a chance to post again, may I just say Eid Mubarak in advance! May the All-Mighty give us another Ramadhan to redeem ourselves. Ameen x
