Today's topic is modesty.
Modesty is a theme, a characteristic, a general message that we find in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu on Amosun the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very modest himself. And he taught this lesson to the Companions among the companions, the ones hobby who was known, above all, for his modesty was saved in a Uthman, I'm not fond of the Allahu taala.
When we think of modesty, in our context, immediately think people think of garments. And without doubt, the way we dress, specifically when we aren't in front of others, does play a big impact on our modesty and how other people carry themselves because of influence. But modesty is broader than that. Modesty involves the way you speak that when you are around other people, you respect boundaries and you don't make other people feel uncomfortable. The Sahaba describe a sort of loss of Allah Hi, my name is cinema, someone who was not obscene in his speech. He was not fetish or with a hash, he wasn't immoral. The prophets of Allah while he was sitting did not speak foul words. He was
modest in his speech. Similarly,
in our actions, that the way we carry ourselves when we are around people, the body language that we use to communicate to the people around us, we are modest there as well. And then comes a level of dressing appropriately, that we carry modesty in our dress, that we remember that Allah subhanahu wa taala gave us these bodies to worship Him. And one of the duties that we have to these bodies is that we cover them. Allah subhanahu wa Tada says in the Quran, yeah, Bunny, the Mahoto Xena to commend the quality measures are children of Adam. Take your your beauty at every place of prostration therefore, we are told to wear good garments were modest garment were elegant and
garments, but Cover yourself because in one day ratio sort of loss of Allah who it was sent him spoke of a people who are close, but in reality they are unclothed through because yet in it, yeah, let me let me let us know till booked in Medina. So the first part of that narration Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he tells us that people that are dressed, while in reality there are undressed. So there is a duty that each individual has that when they step into their greater society and greater community, they give out they give off the right vibes to everyone else, through their speech, through the action and through their dress, that you don't make other people feel
uncomfortable. And on the other hand, maybe said Allah Almighty wisdom tells the other part of society the other part of the community, that everyone else needs to now be respectful to everyone that you see. So one is the object being seen. And then there's the one that see and everyone is both at the same time. So as the one that is looking, I have to realize that when I step into the market, when I go to school, when I go to work, I don't control what people wear. However, what I do control is what I see.
That it's my responsibility to remember that Allah Subhana Allah Allah is watching that Allah Subhana Allah Allah is observing me. I may feel that other people don't know what I'm looking at. But the Quran tells us Yeah, Allah Maha in a unique amount of fish to do, that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows of caught in the treachery of the eye. Those glances that you steal, while looking through a magazine or through watching while watching TV, or while sitting in traffic or walking through the mall, sitting in a classroom that you're casting haram glances. Every time you do this, you stay in your heart. And there is a spiritual darkness that covers the column and row the spirit
and heart of the human being. So today we turn to sudo the node
in sudo, to node surah. Number 24. If 30 Allah Subhan Allah Allah says, put it in what we need a woman of a Saudi him tell the believing men to lower from their gaze. We have a little photo John and to cover cover and protect their private areas to protect and safeguard yourselves. And we are being told that two are connected. Allah is telling us to lower our gaze. So as a result, we will be able to control our temptation, control our passion, that it has gotten better
very purifying for them that is more purifying for them in the LA habito. Viva ensnare own. Allah is aware of what they do.
May Allah Subhana Allah give us the total field to be mindful. People may or may not know what we do. But we Muslims believe that Allah subhanaw taala is aware of all these eyes that we use today to disobey Allah, or the very same eyes that will testify against us. When Allah asked them on the Day of Judgment, what did this person look at? They won't lie to Allah, they will speak the truth.
Each of us will be held accountable. There is harm being done to society each time we cast a hat on glance. And similarly there's spiritual harm, a darkness that covers a heart. And ultimately there's accountability with Allah in the loss of Yahweh mas known that Allah subhanaw taala granted stuff you can accept.
