Sister, you refer to having Noor on your face. It is important to point out that there is a difference between being beautiful and having Noor. Beauty could be natural or superficial. Whatever the case may be, beauty is skin deep. Noor is a spiritual light from Allah which shows on the face due to reciting Quran, making the Zikr of Allah, performing Nafl Salaah in particular Tahajjud.

The difference between beauty and Noor is, beauty appeals to the natural side and presents a natural satisfaction to the sight. Whereas Noor appeals to the spiritual side and presents a spiritual satisfaction. The sight of such a person is internally soothing. To illustrate this, you will observe there is a distinct difference between the face of a disbeliever who looks beautiful and the face of believer who might not be as beautiful. The face of a believer beams with spiritual light (Noor). While you aim to be beautiful, also aim to have Noor on your face by remembering Allah as much as possible.

Ataa Al Khurasaani says: It is said, Tahajjud brings life to the body, Noor in the heart, vigor on the face and strength in ones limbs.( Qiyamul layl Mirwazi)

It will also be this Noor that will assist you in the Qabr and the hereafter. Beauty alone will not avail you in the hereafter.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Mufti Ebrahim Desai.
