Allah Taãla says in the Noble Qurãn, 'You are the best of nations sent to man. You command good and forbid evil and you believe in Allah'. (Aali Imraan).
Allah Taãla states that one reason for this Ummah being titled as the best of Ummah, is the practice of commanding good and preventing evil'.
Assalamu alaykum Wa Rehmatulahi Wabarakatahu, my dear sister's in Islam. Alhamdulilah, this is a short reminder that I would like you to think and reflect upon Insha'Allah-
In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful. Insha'Allah, I'm just going to discuss about women and Haya (Modesty).
Today around many countries we see that the Hijab is being ignored. We see the Hijab as an old tradition or a burden that we refuse to accept. Instead, we ignore the command of Allah and His Beloved Messenger Muhammad (s.a.w). But rather we follow and adapt the non-Muslim's lifestyle.
But my dear sister's in Islam, the truth is the hijab is the actual beauty of a Muslimah. It creates a natural innocent look. The 'Nur' (light) comes within the Hijab. So why don't we understand and accept what a beautiful gift Allah Almighty has given us, which protects us from the evil eye.
It has been reported in a Hadith... 'Modesty (Haya) is a branch of Iman'. Subhan'Allah, its so clear that Modesty is part of Iman. Modesty has been highly regarded in Islam. In fact, her real worth lies in modesty itself. If a woman is modest she will receive respect from people. And if not, she will have no value in the Duniya or Akirah. And even her beauty will have no value at all.
I pray and hope Insha'Allah that my dear sister's in Islam accept the beautiful gift that Allah (s.w.t) has given us. And our aim is to please Allah, rather than pleasing others who won't be able to help us in the next life. Follow the teachings of Allah and His Messenger Muhammad (s.a.w). And set a good example to others around you. May Allah give us the strength to preach and practice upon this -Ameen!
'Invite (mankind) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful advice and reason with them in the best manner possible'. (An Nahl 125)
