Ornaments In The Qur'an



Allah GIVES ORNAMENTS AS AN EXAMPLE



He sends down water from the sky and river-beds fill up and flow according to their size, and the floodwater carries with it an increasing layer of foam; a similar kind of foam comes from what you heat up in the fire, when you desire to make jewellery or other things. That is how Allah depicts the true and the false. As for the foam, it is quickly swept away. But as for that which is of use to people, it remains behind in the ground. That is a metaphor which Allah has made. (Surat ar-Ra'd, 17)


WEARING ADORNMENTS AT PLACES OF PRAYER



Children of Adam! Wear fine clothing at every place of worship and eat and drink but do not be profligate. He does not love the profligate. (Surat al-A'raf, 31)


ADORNMENTS ARE PERMISSIBLE



Say: 'Who has prohibited the embellishment of Allah which He has brought forth for His servants and the good provisions?' Say: 'These are for the believers in the life of this world, purely (theirs) on the resurrection day; thus do We make the communications clear for a people who know.' (Surat al-A'raf, 32)


THOSE WHO WORSHIPPED THE CALF MADE FROM ORNAMENTS



After he left, Musa's people adopted a calf made from their ornaments, a form which made a lowing sound. Did they not see that it could not speak to them or guide them to any way? They adopted it and so they were wrongdoers. (Surat al-A'raf, 148)


THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING THANKFUL FOR THESE GIFTS



It is He Who made the sea subservient to you so that you can eat fresh flesh from it and bring out from it ornaments to wear. And you see the ships cleaving through it so that you can seek His bounty, and so that hopefully you will show thanks. (Surat an-Nahl, 14)


FROM THE SEA ARE BROUGHT OUT ORNAMENTS



It is He Who made the sea subservient to you so that you can eat fresh flesh from it and bring out from it ornaments to wear. And you see the ships cleaving through it so that you can seek His bounty, and so that hopefully you will show thanks. (Surat an-Nahl, 14)


GOLD PLATTERS



Platters and cups of gold will passed around among them and they will have there all that their hearts desire and their eyes find delight in. You will remain in it timelessly, for ever. (Surat az-Zukhruf, 71)


GOLD BRACELETS



But Allah will admit those who believe and do right actions into Gardens with rivers flowing under them where they will be adorned with gold bracelets and pearls, and where their clothing will be of silk. (Surat al-Hajj, 23)

They will enter Gardens of Eden where they will be adorned with gold bracelets and pearls, and where their clothing will be of silk. (Surah Fatir, 33)

They will have Gardens of Eden with rivers flowing under them. They will be adorned in them with bracelets made of gold and wear green garments made of the finest silk and rich brocade, reclining there on couches under canopies. What an excellent reward! What a wonderful repose! (Surat al-Kahf, 31)

Why have gold bracelets not been put upon his arms and why is there not a train of angels accompanying him?' (Surat az-Zukhruf, 53)

 


SILVER BRACELETS



They will wear green garments of fine silk and rich brocade. They will be adorned with silver bracelets. And their Lord will give them a pure draught to drink. (Surat al-Insan, 21)

Gold as a Flower of the Life of This World



To mankind the love of worldly appetites is painted in glowing colours: women and children, and heaped-up mounds of gold and silver, and horses with fine markings, and livestock and fertile farmland. All that is merely the enjoyment of the life of this world. The best homecoming is in the presence of Allah. (Surah Al 'Imran, 14)

Why have gold bracelets not been put upon his arms and why is there not a train of angels accompanying him?' (Surat az-Zukhruf, 53)
