  • The nature of creation is that it is progressing always towards beauty. "God is beautiful, and He loves beauty", says the Qur'an. The nature of the body is to beautify itself; the nature of the mind is to have beautiful thoughts; the longing of the heart is for beautiful feelings. Therefore an infant should grow more beautiful every day, and ignorance seeks to become intelligence. When the progress is in a contrary direction, it shows that the individual has lost the track of natural progress. There are two forms: the natural and the artificial, the latter being a copy of the former.
