Allah’s Beautiful Name: Al-Jameel

Understanding Allah’s Beautiful Name: Al-Jameel

Explanation from our brother Umar Quinn. From the Beautiful Names of Allah that are only known to us via the Sunnah of the noble Messenger ﷺ is the name Al-Jameel (the Beautiful One). All of Allah’s names are both titles and description of Allah. Therefore Allah is the Most beautiful absolutely in His Self (Dhaat), His Attributes, His actions and His Names.

It is recorded in Sahih Muslim that Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said: “No one who has an atom’s weight of pride in his heart will enter Paradise.” A man said, “A man likes to have a nice robe and good shoes”. He ﷺ said, “Verily Allah is Beautiful and He loves beauty. Pride is arrogance in the face of the truth and contempt for the people.”
