The personality of a Muslim should stand out with its beauty, perfection and uniqueness due to his/her cleanliness and code of conduct. Islam is not only about the way you look and dress, but a believer is able to stand out with his/her adaab.

Islam is a religion that teaches purity (taharah). Appearance is also important, the external appearance to a degree in terms of beauty is important in Islam. It goes back to benefitting other people. When a person is dirty, filthy and unclean; bad odour emanating from the body, then this harms those around you.

A few points:

One should remain in a neat and presentable state with neat clothes.

A believer should stand out amongst the people as a beauty mark, not just the way we act even the way we dress is important. Islam places a lot of important on taharah. Purity is half of faith. Islam does not only place importance on purity, it also places importance on nazhafa (cleanliness).
