Dua for looking in the mirror

Dua for looking in the mirror

Whenever we look in the mirror and admire ourselves, be it the new clothes we are wearing or just the fact that Allah has made us beautiful there is a beautiful Dua we can make:

Our beloved Nabi ﷺ would read:

Dua for looking in the mirror

ْاَللَّهُمَّ حَسَّنْتَ خَلْقِي, فَحَسِّنْ خُلُقِی

Allahumma hassanta khalqi fahassin khuluqi

Translation: “O Allah, You have beautified my body, so beautify my character”. [Musnad Abu Ya’la]

There is another narration in which there is an extra word which too can be read:

ْاَللَّهُمَّ اَنْتَ حَسَّنْتَ خَلْقِي, فَحَسِّنْ خُلُقِی

Allahumma anta hassanta khalqi fahassin khuluqi

Translation: “O Allah, You have beautified my body, so beautify my character”. (Al Hisnul Hasin)

Lesson’s that we learn from this beautiful Dua:

1) What we see in the mirror is ever-changing!

2) As we get older our beauty will get old too, the beautiful clothes we are wearing will get old or out of fashion etc.

3) The beauty inside of us, which is of good character, kindness, humbleness, love, affection, generosity etc. will not age.

4) Allah Ta’ala also looks at our inside and not at our outside

5) Colour, race, age etc are not important. The main thing is our inner self.

6) The way we work to make our outer selves beautiful, we too should work on making our insides beautiful.

Dua being the first action, spending time with those with good character being second and studying the seerah and character of our beloved Nabi ﷺ is the third.

7) Finally, when we make friends or even go for a relationship in marriage etc,  over beauty, health and wealth we should look at the Akhlaq and Deen of a person.

Insha’Allah by reading this Dua, Allah Ta’ala will preserve and increase us in beauty and Allah Ta’ala will give us something more important and that is a beautiful character.

So let’s make this dua every time we look in the mirror Insha’Allah.
