The Invisible Beauty.
A Beautiful quotation from Dr. Fatimah Nasif - may Allah Preserve her:
“If haya’ is beautiful in a man, it is even more beautiful in a woman. If it is virtuous in a man, it is even more virtuous in a woman, as it only increases her in elegance. So, the pinnacle of good in a woman is her haya’, and the pinnacle of evil in a woman is her boldness and forwardness. Haya’ is the watchful and vigilant protector of her virtue, and is her personal security guard that does not allow for any entity to violate her honor, or to cross into her space. And it is what prevents any filth from residing in an area that has been occupied by virtue. In fact, it separates between these two with all the power and resolve that is possible.”
[Huquq al-Mar'ah wa Wajibatiha fi Daw' al-Kitab was-Sunnah'; p. 116]
