In spite of his noble standing among the Quraysh, Abu Talib, an uncle of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), was quite poor.

To me beauty is not what the eye sees but what the heart feels at the time the eye experiences its first sight
I find beauty to be when a mother gives birth
That very moment when she looks into her baby’s eyes and smiles ...
Or when you look up at the sky and see a shooting star
Or maybe it’s when you see a stranger adopting an abandoned or abused animal
Someone giving help, a smile or a kind word to the needy
It is difficult to define a word that has many meanings…
But the most difficult is too feel each definition deep inside your soul,
Beauty is not looks because they fade
It is not a shape either that can change at any time too,
Beauty is when the rain starts falling or when the sun shines after a storm
Beauty is when the nights are dark and the moon is only but a sliver and a few stars shines brightly
Beauty is when you look at someone and see beyond their flaws or disabilities
Beauty doesn’t have colour, creed, race or religion
Beauty is all around us and it is in even the most tiniest thing.
Beauty is what I feel when I look into your eyes...
The eyes of a beloved
I've cried many tears but in that is also beauty because it is words I cannot say out loud about what my heart feels
You will never understand me but that's the beauty of it all
I'm different and unique and one in a million to some
And that is how I define beauty...
