In the eyes of the beholder…

Posted in English, Reflections at 1:44 am by Rou...

Beauty is what is pleasant to your eyes, heart, and mind…

You might see that something is “beautiful”, while others don’t, that’s why they say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder…


But why does this happen?

The thing is that beauty is very subjective… It depends not only on your personality, but also on the country you live in, and the culture you have grown up on…  Your culture defines an ideal model of beauty, that you subconsciously compare its features to anything else; whether it is a place, a person, an object, or even a mere idea… In other words, you know what beauty is; by the way you define it…


However, what we always seem to fail to recognize is the fact that there is actually beauty in almost everything and everyone … It doesn’t have to be physically observed; it can be what’s inside of a person, and how they treat others; it can be their kindness, sensitivity, or compassion that actually delights your heart…


See, true beauty lies in the heart and in the spirit, and this is what makes it genuine…




Have you noticed the beauty around you lately…?

Did you appreciate having it around…?


Well… I did see… and I am thankful…

    As long as there’s a breath
    left in your body,
    there’s hope.

    As long as mankind
    has prowled the earth,
    miracles have happened,
    restoring life and health.

    As long as you have
    a loving heart,
    Allah will send much
    warmth and love
    to you in return.

    As long as you’ve been alive,
    ِAllah has been watching over you
    and answering your prayers.

    As long as the heaven
    and stars exist,
    Allah will be there
    for you.

    He is the real beauty in our lives…..
