Shyness is From Eman

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “From the words obtained from the first prophecy are: If you have no shyness, then do as you wish.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari]

Commentary:

His statement, “From the words obtained from the first prophecy are: If you have no shyness, then do as you wish.” This means what remains of the first prophecy from the previous nations, and this legislation confirms it. “If you have no shyness, then do as you wish.” This means that if you do not withhold from doing an action that you are shy of, then do as you wish. This is one opinion, i.e. do it based on this meaning. The second opinion is if a person is not shy, he will do whatever he wants and not mind, and both meanings are correct.

And from the Benefits of this hadith:

  • Shyness is from those things that have come in the previous legislations. It is appropriate that a person is outright. If there is something he is not shy of, then he should do it. This absolute circumstance is restricted by a person’s action being a harmful (action). (In this case), he should withhold from doing that action fearing the harm therein.

And Allah Knows Best!
