Our Prophet Mohammed describes Haya’ (modesty) as he said: “and modesty is a part of faith.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari).
So that faith prevents Muslims from performing forbidden deeds and modesty (Haya’) prohibited Muslims from having bad qualities.
Modesty is a small level and a part of faith doesn’t bring anything to a Muslim except good in his treatment, speech and dealing with his family and community. It was narrated by Imran bin Husain that he said: The Prophet Mohammed said: “Haya’ (modesty) does not bring anything except good.”(Sahih AL-Bukhari).
It was narrated by Abu Mas’ud that the Prophet (Peace & blessings be upon him) said: “One of the sayings of the early Prophets which the people have got is: ‘If you don’t feel ashamed, then do whatever you like.’” (Sahih Bukhari).
Scholars said: modesty in fact is a characteristic that makes people abstain from ill-behavior and from not giving the rights to those who deserve them.
Modesty is one of the characteristics of the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) as his companions described him as “he had even more shyness than a virgin behind her veil.”
Modesty is a good feature for men because it raises their morals and treatments, as well as for women because it preserves their dignity and chastity.
Modesty is like a dress that covers the body, if a man left it, his faults, bad morality and ill-features are exposed.
