Question

Assalamu Alaykom, 1-Is the language of paradise Arabic? 2- Who was more beautiful Prophet Mohamed PBUH or prophet Joseph PBUH? 3-Islam is the religion of God since Adam PBUH. Was the religion of God called "islam" when Jesus and Moses PBUH were sent to the people as messengers or was it just called submission to God? Thank you

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

We have already issued Fatwa 4563 clarifying that Arabic is the language of the people of Paradise, and issued Fatwas 88906 and 81628 clarifying that Islam is the religion of all the Prophets, may Allaah exalt their mention, and it was called by this name (Islam). Its meaning is to surrender to Allaah The Almighty by believing and worshipping Him Alone without any partners, and submitting to Him by performing acts of obedience and declaring oneself free from Shirk (associating partners to Allaah The Almighty) and from the polytheists.

It is confirmed from the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) that Yoosuf (Joseph)  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention was given half of beauty. [Muslim]

As for the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) he was more beautiful than Prophet Yoosuf  may  Allaah  exalt  his  mention and some scholars, interpreted the Prophetic narration to mean that the latter was given half of the beauty which was given to the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) .

The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) had the most beautiful face as reported in a Prophetic narration by At-Tirmithi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him.

Allaah Knows best.
