Bigotry: The Dark Danger

How Is the Word “Ornament” Used in the Qur'an?

In complete contrast to the fanatics' idea of banning ornaments and objects such as necklaces and earrings, God reveals in the Qur'an that He creates such adornments for believers and that indeed they should go to the mosque looking well-groomed and well- dressed:

Children of Adam! Put on your adornment in every mosque ... (Qur'an, 7:31)

In the verse, “Say: ‘Who has forbidden the ornament of God which He has produced for His servants and the good kinds of provision?...'” (Qur'an, 7:32) God reveals the existence of a mindset that would forbid those things made lawful by Him. In the next part of the verse, “... Say: ‘They are, in the life of this world, for those who believe, (and) purely for them on the Day of Resurrection.' In this way We make the signs clear for people who know.” (Qur'an, 7:32) He stresses that ornaments are lovely blessings bestowed on Muslims in this world, and that they will belong to believers alone in the hereafter, thus making it clear that believers are the ones worthies of such delights. The fact that fanatics try to prohibit Muslims from enjoying these pleasures, even though God regards them as worthy of believers, shows how directly they fly in the face of the mindset of the Qur'an. Another verse in which ornamentation is referred to reads: Children of Adam! We have sent down clothing to you to conceal your private parts, as well as to be an adornment to you, but the garment of piety–that is best! That is one of God's signs, so that hopefully you will pay heed. (Qur'an, 7:26)
