This study examines the universality of .absolute good. in line with inferences of two different recitals (qiraah) in Verse 7 of Surah al-Sejde; and the concepts of good and beautiful, and their opposites bad and ugly are analyzed with philosophical and ontological perspective. Departing from the fact the verb-based recital implies that all creation is rendered beautiful, we analyzed the notion of beauty in cosmic and ontological aspects. In doing so, we explained the rationale beyond the existing evil and ugly in the universe. Finally, examining the infinitive based recital, we emphasize the creation beauty in the constitution of objects.
