إن الله جميل يحب الجمال
“Indeed, Allah is Beautiful, and loves beauty.”
In part of a sound hadith narrated by Imams Muslim, Ahmad, and al-Hakim, the Prophet ﷺ informed us that “Indeed, Allah is Beautiful, and loves beauty.” Commenting on this statement, Sh. al-Munawi (d. 1621), commenting on this hadith, writes: “ ‘Indeed, God is Beautiful’ means that His alone is Absolute Beauty, comprising of the Beauty of His Essence, Attributes, and Actions. And by ‘He loves beauty’ what is meant is that God loves [actions such as] the beautifying one’s person, rarely revealing one’s needs to others, and safeguarding the honor of others.”
