August 01, 2022, 08:48:12 pm Ruhi_Rose: As-Salam Alaykum MV guests. Just a reminder how time flies. We're already in the Islamic new year of 1444 month of Muharram, a very tragic time of our history. May The Almighty grant Hussein bin Ali and his comrades the best spot in Paradise for their unflinching courage to uphold the values of the Final Message, The Noble Quran.  Please read our post Ashura - who was Hussein?

July 07, 2022, 04:02:47 pm Zainab_M: Eid-al-Adha expected on 10th Dhul Hijja 1443 (July 9th 2022, Saturday) Insh'Allah,.
June 30, 2022, 05:37:22 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Salaam all.  Today is 1st Dhul Hijja 1443 (corresponding to June 30, 2022).  Day of Arafah will be on 9th Dhul Hijja (July 8th) and Eid-al-Adha on 10th Dhul Hijja (July 9th). Fasting on the Day of Arafah is not obligatory, however it's a good day to observe a nafl fast for those healthy enough to do so.  Insh'Allah.

Allah Almighty says in the Quran "Surely We created man of the best stature"  (95:4) Surah At-Tin.   In this Verse, the original Arabic word for the translated word "stature" is  تَقْوِيمٍ (taqwīmin).  The literal dictionary translation of this word is ‘evaluation.’   The term most commonly used in English translations for taqwimin is  “stature.”  Other translators have also used words like “form” or “shape” or “mould” or “state.”

“Stature” refers to repute gained by ability and achievement.  It doesn’t mean having a pretty face.  Similarly in translated words like “shape” or “mould” or “state” the reference, in my humble opinion, is to the human capacity of moral development, not external good looks.  A person who is morally strong will automatically reflect outward charm.  But those who are morally corrupt from the inside, regardless of how they look from the outside are insignificant and in the Sight of Allah Almighty they are worthless.

Thus if you read the complete content of Verses 95:4-5, quote:

“Surely We created man of the best stature, Then we reduced him to the lowest of the low,”  95:4-5. 

This alludes to the reality that though Allah Almighty has granted humans the capacity to grow morally, yet there are many who don’t make efforts to grow and remain morally & ethically stunted.  Such people are denied the guidance of Allah because they never tried to acquire it.

Thus, to conclude, I cannot confirm nor can I assume that V.95:4 implies only humans are good looking and all jinn are ugly.  Intellectually humans do have greater capacity to learn and progress compared to the jinn.  But aesthetically only Allah knows best.
