The Shyness of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)
Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (radi Allahu anhu) said that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was even shier than a virgin behind her veil. When he saw something which he disliked, we could perceive it on his face.
[Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Though this Hadith particularly refers to the character of Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), it also reveals the fact that modesty is a peculiar quality of women. An unmarried woman, above all else, is considered to be the embodiment of bashfulness and shyness.
Unfortunately today many Islamic countries have witnessed many curses of western civilization and the worst is the one which has robbed away the modesty and shyness of woman because it is the last protective shield of Islamic civilization which the enemy is consistently sweeping off.
May Allah grant Muslims the insight to avert this wickedness!
And Allah knows best!
