Iman Has Over Seventy Branches

Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Iman has over seventy branches, the uppermost of which is the declaration: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’; and the least of which is the removal of harmful object from the road, and modesty is a branch of Iman.”

[Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary:

This Hadith tells us that from the standpoint of practice, Faith has several stages. It also tells that Faith and practice are inseparable.

It also makes evident the importance and excellence of bashfulness because it induces a person to good deeds and deters him from evils.

And Allah Knows Best!
