I'm looking for an Arabic translation for either the word beauty or the word beautiful.

Arabic translation:جمال
Explanation:
Beauty: JAMAL

Beautiful: JAMEEL (masculine); JAMEELA (feminine).

As you can imagine, there are many synonyms for both "beauty " and "beautiful," but JAMAL, JAMEEL, and JAMEELA are the simplest, yet most comprehensive terms for their respective meanings.

In previous discussions here on KudoZ, we have addressed the terms "gorgeous" and "good." Both of these discussions brought up the topic of beauty, and many synonyms are mentioned there. If you are interested in these details, you can you can look these up by defining the appropriate search criteria: source and target languages and the terms (gorgeous, good). Search for each term separately.
