Beauty comes out of pain and suffering!

The most beautiful people are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

People need to think before they speak and act. There are so many judgmental people, but who gives them the right to judge others. Is it acceptable to make fun of a burns victim, or a cancer patient or someone with some type of abnormality. There are so many people with different types of disabilities, just because you can't see the obvious don't judge.

You do not know a persons struggles, the things they've had to fight. You do not know how heavy a persons heart is, or how much baggage they have in their life; your one rude comment, or nasty look or viciousness might be the last thing that person can take. How would you feel if someone took their own life, because you were one of a hundred people to be rude to them. How will you justify yourself on judgement day knowing that you helped a person die. If someone kills themselves because of something you said or did, it is the same as you having killed them.

Think before you speak. If someone looks different, don't act like a pack of animals, waiting to tear them apart, have respect and realise there might be a reason for that person looking or being different, and it might not be what you are so quick to judge. Remember that Allah made that person more unique than everybody else, if Allah makes someone more unique that makes them special, as Allah spent more time on them making them different from everyone else. Maybe Allah has big plans in store for that person who He made different. The person you are judging and insulting is still loved by Allah. No one has the right to add to someone else's pain, by judging other people. Before you judge another living soul, make sure you are perfect in every way!

Although life has it's challenges, it is still precious. Everyone hurts, bleeds and feels pain. Never make someone feel that they are worthless, because they may have no one to turn to, and nobody is worthless. Try to learn to be understanding and accepting, especially to people who are different. We are all human beings, it's just a shame we have to remind others from time to time. Remember, it is always the ugliest of people who judge, gossip and look down on others!

Every moment is a chance to get closer to Allah, to express the talents He has given us, and to feel the sunshine on our faces.
