Hadith of the Day: A Goodness Through and Through

Today’s Hadith is about: Modesty 


A Goodness Through and Through
Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Modesty is a virtue through and through, or said: Modesty is a goodness complete.” [ Muslim ]

Once the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) passed by a man who was admonishing his brother concerning Haya and was saying, ‘You’re very shy, and I’m afraid that may hurt you.’ On that, Allah’s Apostle mentioned, ‘Leave him, for Haya is (a component) of Faith.’ [Bukhari]

This hadith tells us that there’s nothing unhealthy about modesty. Due to this fact, if something is only good, then however much you have of it, it can solely be good for you. That is one thing to particularly bear in mind in these times when ‘moral’ and ‘modest’ are portrayed as ‘backward,’ ‘oppressed’ and ‘under-confident.’

A person with Haya doesn’t exhibit his thoughts, physique, or anything else. Haya is translated as modesty however it consists of all the following meanings as well: self respect, bashfulness, having scruples, having consciousness of Allah. This word is a primary example of how a lot is misplaced in translation from Arabic to every other language.
