From fashion, perfumes to jewels, they managed to create beauty in all aspects of life. In order to protect jewels, craftsmen created jewellery boxes. To match the beauty of the jewels inside, they decorated the jewellery box with gems, coral and pearls! Muslims were inspired by this quote from the Prophet Muhammad, also known as hadith:
Verily, Allah is beautiful and he loves beauty. (al-Mu’jam al-Awsaṭ 6902)
During the Golden Age of Islam (8th - 14th centuries CE) this hadith had inspired Muslims to find beauty in all things.
