Living in a society in which people have accepted western lifestyles as their way of life,brings immorality @ every step.HAYA(modesty)SHARM(shame)IZZAT(honour)has no place in the western world.Today muslims too are increasingly banishing their modesty.
النَّبِي مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said"Haya is part of IMAAN".
Haya plays a huge role in muslims lives,because it is an integral part of their Imaan.If we do not have any form of Haya within us,then it shows that our Imaan is very weak.It is stated in the following hadith narated by Abu Huraira(رضي الله عنه )thatلنَّبِي مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَsaid"Faith(belief)consists of more than 60 branches(parts)and Haya is part of Faith"(bukhari)
We also learn from the prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ the importance of having HAYA and it is not something to be ashamed of,but concerned and embarrased if they do not possess it within their character.Sometimes HAYAH is regarded as shyness,and is also frowned upon in society.With HAYA a beleiver should build his character with good dimensions of HAYA.Most importantly a beleiver should be shy of doing things that would displease'اَللَّهُ عَزَّوَجل.Knowing that he/she would have to answer for their deeds one day.
I can go with this topic forever on end.The truth of the matter is that HAYA and SHARM has to come from witin a person.No1 can tell u how to behave,it is ur own unique character.We as muslims should always be proud of our HAyA and IZZAT.It is our own special blessing from'اَللَّهُ عَزَّوَجَل .
