Dear Sister,

I know its hard. I know you look at the pictures of models and celebrities and wonder why you can't look like them? I know it physically hurts to sometimes refrain yourself from plucking those brows or to put on that hijab and abhaya. I know how it feels when your best friends are extremely pretty (Mashallah) and you are standing next to them feeling like nothing. I know how much complements and attention can light up your face. I know sometimes you have to give up being able to wear a certain thing because it isn't appropriate. i know it gets hard to walk outside with no make up, with your natural face, thinking it's not good enough and all of your flaws are showing. I know.

You know what else I know? I know you are beautiful, regardless of what you think of yourself. I know that even the slightest inclination of pleasing Allah in yourself increases that beauty ten-fold and I know that even when Allah finds you beautiful, it's all that matters. You are not doing this for the world, remember? You are not even doing it for yourself.

Imagine your beauty on the Yawm al Akhirah when your face would be glowing and radiant with annur, when you would be more beautiful than the honor and you would realize that it was this world really wasn't worth the drool.

Dear sister, I'm proud of you.

got it from here. well said  =)
