Islam teaches modesty. It instructs us to be chaste. It prohibits even approaching adultery. Allah Ta'ala says:
Translation: - And do not kill your children owing to poverty. We alone give you sustenance and (will provide for) them as well. And do not draw near to shameful deeds (whether) open or hidden. Surah An'aam-(06:151)
Translation: - And do not even go near unlawful sex (adultery). Verily it is an act of lewdness and is the most evil way. Surah Isra-(17:32)
Modesty is such a basic part of etiquette that no religion and cultured person denies its importance and need. That’s the reason the religion of Islam has declared modesty as a part of Iman (faith).
The Hadith of Sahih Bukhari says:
Translation of Hadith: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Faith has more than sixty branches and modesty is a great branch. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 9)
It is a clear truth that modesty is the dividing line between humanity and animalism.
Human beings should understand their status and honor and should not acquire those qualities which are below the level of humanity.
When the religion of Islam places such emphasis on modesty that it has been declared as a part of faith, Muslims, for their Iman, should condemn the efforts of the Orientalists who are conspiring to deprive the Muslims of the beautiful jewel of modesty.
If the Muslims do not pay attention to Hijab, then whatever of the Hijab remains in the Muslim society, that also will vanish and like the western society, the Muslim society will be embroiled in deadly diseases. As the experts in the field of sexology have said that, today in the society, there is much carelessness about matters of sex. There is no embarrassment and/or regret for adultery, sodomy or any other unnatural and forbidden sexual acts. Instead the media have made it so that for the youth chastity and modesty are themselves a cause of embarrassment.
This is one kind of world-wide deceit as well as a political and cultural propaganda that in the name of independence and liberalization, women should be taken out in the markets, should be made to cast away her Hijab and should be reduced to a mere toy. With this, women are being cheated.
The woman, who would remain in her house with chastity and dignity, has been taken out of her house and has been disgraced to such an extent that nowadays people think it is impossible to sell even a bar of soap without a half-nude picture of a woman.
