The Most Beautiful Faces

salah-itikaf

قيل للحسن: ما بال المتهجدين من أحسن الناس وجوها؟

.قال: لأنهم خلوا بالرحمن، فألبسهم من نوره نورا


Hasan al-Basri was asked, “Why is it that the people who pray at night [1] have the most beautiful faces?”

He replied, “Because they seclude themselves with the Most Merciful, so He adorns them with a light from His Light.”

(‘Tahajjud’ by ibn Abi ad-Dunya)
