While I agree with the article on many points I have to add that some light make up every now and then is a must.
The glow is simply a reflection of our deeds, clean faith, intentions, thoughts,
motives and everything we do for the real pleasure of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala).No amount of make-up can be a substitute for it.If you want to be beautiful spend a minute before the mirror,
then before your soul and examine your Motives,
and 15 before Allah (subhanahu wata’ala), be true to yourself.Below are some of the major factors which contribute our faces to
reflect our true beauty and maintain a glowing potential:
1. Be with Wudhu at all times.
2. Avoid all unclean (Najis) food. Eat in moderation.
3. Avoid hidden motives, thoughts, ill wishes, double morality, backbiting etc
Examine your characters.
4. Men should abstain from shaving their beards and
women should not attract looks of na-mahram men.
5. Always pray on time and never to miss fajr prayers (both winter and summer)
6. Do not bear any sort of grudges, malice or envy towards others in your heart.
Adapt forgiveness, generosity, kindness, love, gratitude and patience.
7. Get up little earlier than Namaz-e-Subh and offer 11 rak’at of Namaz-e-Shab (Night Prayers). for that extraordinary Noor on the face.
8. Eat one pomegranate at least once every 40 days.
8. Do not sleep at the time of sunset.
9. Avoid watching un-Islamic films and late night parties, stay ups, music etc.
10. Keep fasts on 3 days of every month other than Ramadan and keep yourself
away from all kinds of sins and bad habits.
Always be patient, grateful, in Remembrance of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala) – no matter trials of life
and have a smiling relaxed face.
For attractive lips,
always remember to speak the truth.
Speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
Seek out the good in people.
