Ibu Amir is one beautiful octogenarian. She is 85. She was the pioneer beautician who brought the major Indonesian cosmetic brands to Malaysia in the late 1980s. She has been with the Naqshbandi Tariqa for 20 over years. MashaAllah Tabarakallah and she still comes to majlis zikr at our zawiya whenever she is in town.
This is the most-often repeated piece of advice from her:
"Beauty comes from the heart. Do not ever be jealous of other people. It does not matter if the other person has a big diamond ring. She has ten fingers and you have ten fingers too. It does not matter if the other person has a big car. Be grateful that you have a car too. Guard your heart from jealousy and you will always be beautiful."
May Allah bless her with sakinah and husnul khatimah.
