Modesty – A major branch of Iman
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 will fall them below humanity.
The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
Translation: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Mas’ud (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Surely, it was mentioned in the words of the previous Prophets which the people received that if you don’t have any shame, do whatever you want. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 6120)
It is the responsibility of all people as human beings and especially Muslims that they should refrain from lewd gazing. They should abstain from premarital relationships. They should save themselves from Un-Islamic customs in the functions.
A woman should not describe the beauty of another Unrelated (non-Mahram) woman before her husband. They should refrain from acts like singing and dancing in wedding ceremonies and other functions. In the functions of schools and colleges, one should be mindful of human values. Each and every person should save themselves from indecent and obscene deeds.
May Allah Most High grant all Muslims high morals and lofty character, grant us the attribute of modesty and save us from lewdness.
