Asking Allah To Make One Handsome. by Taamas111 (m): 8:10pm on January 12

Question:

Assalamu alaykum, My question is that
can you ask Allah anything like due'a,
you can ask Allah any dua you want
right like, o allah make me smart, or
give me beauty, will Allah except this
dua , please let me know insha allah
assalamu alaykum

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

There are some etiquettes for supplication
that should be observed, and a person is not
totally free to ask whatever he wants without
restrictions, rather it is forbidden to exceed
the limits when supplicating. It is reported
that 'Abdullaah Ibn Mughaffal , may Allah be
pleased with him, narrated: " I heard the
Prophet saying: ''There will be people
among this (Muslim) nation who would
exceed the limits in ritual purification and in
supplication." [Ahmad and Abu Daawood]

Exceeding the limits when supplicating is, for
example, when one supplicates for something
which contradicts the wisdom of Allah in
creating people with a certain share of
beauty that could be less than others. Ibn
Taymiyyah said: 'To exceed the limits
when supplicating is to ask for what one is
not permitted to ask for, like supplicating
for help in forbidden matters, or when
supplicating for something which Allah has
willed not to do, like asking Him to make one
live until the Day of Judgement, or to make
him stand free of basic necessities of human
beings like food and drink, or to ask Allah to
show him the unseen, or to make him
infallible, or to bless him with children
without being married, and other forms
supplications that exceed the limits, and
which Allah does not like, and does not like
the person who supplicates with them. '
Therefore, the supplication that is mentioned
in the question, despite being among things
that Allah is able to grant, it is a kind of
exceeding the limits as Allah created the
creation in this universe according to certain
constant Divine laws, among which is the
impossibility of changing the form of a
person from ugly to handsome for instance.
Therefore, one should not ask Allah
something that is contradictory to these
universal laws set by Allah.

Nonetheless, a person may ask Allah to
improve his manners and make him accepted
by people and make his moral conduct better
than his outside appearance, as this is
something that is within the realm of
possibility and reason. As a matter of fact,
this supplication is better for the person
than having a good outside appearance
which conceal an evil inner self.

Allah Knows best.
