Model Of Modesty!

There are 60 branches of faith and modesty is one of them.

Narrated by Abu Huraira (ra): The Prophet said, “Faith (Belief) consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And Haya is a part of faith.” (Bukhari)

“Every religion has a distinct call. For Islam it is Haya’.” [Ibn Majah].

Haya itself is derived from the word hayat which means life. This term covers a wide number of concepts. In English, it may be translated as modesty, shyness, self-respect, bashfulness, shame, honour, humility, etc. 

Abdullah ibn Umar (ra) narrated that the Prophet (saw) said: “Indeed haya (modesty) and Iman are Companions. When one of them is lifted, the other leaves as well.” (Baihaqi)

 Haya and Iman are interdependent; therefore either they both exist together or they both perish. Thus, the Prophet (saws) has said in one hadith, "When there is no haya left, then do as you please."

Asking whether modesty is greater or lesser than faith, is like asking someone: Are you the son of your father first or your mother first? Naturally of both first, a wise child may reply.

Faith and modesty are intertwined together,one cannot seperate,but if one tries to, he/she will end up loosing both. A woman is no woman without modesty and a Muslim woman is no woman without faith and modesty.

Those who say that they can be good muslima's even, without wearing  hijab ...they should think twice before they speak from now onwards because they are directly/indirectly insulting the  Ummahatul Mumeneen and all the sahabiyath( may Allah be pleased with them) who practised hijab perfectly in all spheres of life so much so that they wished there coffins to be carried to grave during night time.

 I read that Hazrat Faitmah(r) said that the best thing for a muslim woman is that she see no man(non-mahrams) and no man see her except her mahrams.

Faith cannot remain pure when modesty is adulterated or polluted. Modesty by itself is  both character and a intrinsic part of faith.

All those  pervert politicians, corrupted feminists who bark like mad dogs saying 'She(Muslim woman) can be good and beautiful even without covering herself, are indirectly saying that nudity and nakedness is not of body but of heart.They destroyed thier daughters and dont want to spare ours.

Indeed its the nature of animals to be so(naked) and not of human beings.

To sum up, modesty is such a child of her mother (faith) that if she (faith) becomes weak or sick,her child (modesty) too becomes weak and sick and the child(modesty) cannot live without her mother(faith).When she dies(leaves) her child too will.~Hamid

P.s: I didn't intend to insult or hurt anyone.But If truth hurt's someone ,then Im not responsible for it.

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullah Brother Hamid. I wish your words reach people all over the world and benefit them in this duniya and the Akhira. Indeed, it is full of WISDOM!

I agree with the post on Modesty totally. It is an act of submission to Allah after Islam as the way of life.

I dont agree with sisters who say, their intentions are clear and so they dont need to wear a hijab or be covered. It actually shows that there is a problem in their heart that manifests as reasons to not be covered a s prescribed.

Keep up the good work brother!
