Narrated Abu Mas'ud may Allah be pleased with him:

The Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) said, "One of the sayings of the prophets which the people have got is 'If you do not feel ashamed, then do whatever you like."

The moral origins are agreed upon by the prophets and messengers, none of whom differed in their origins.

Modesty is one of the origins of the morals because all of which are based on it. This is the reason why modesty in particular was mentioned in his saying – may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him: ( faith has over seventy branches - or over sixty 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 faith. )

Modesty was and still a balance according to which the deeds are measured and the values ​​of men and their differences in faith are known. The more one sticks to modesty the more he increases in faith.

The people of modesty are the people of Paradise, because their modesty prevented them from the disbelief in Allah, because it is not a sign of modesty to know that Allah created him from nothing and provided for him out of his generosity, then to deny his graces..

Modesty prevented the people of faith from the visible and invisible showing off, which is called the smaller shirk; because when the people of faith knew that Allah is the one who rewards for the good deeds they did not associate others with him in worship.

In other words, modesty is all the goodness, as the Prophet ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said in another Hadith, it brings none but goodness, and that its status of faith is like the status of the head to the body. It is noteworthy to mention that modesty necessitates the cessation of every disliked deed.

It is defined as: "To guard the head and what is perceives, to guard the stomach and what it contains, and to keep in mind the death and the torn bodies."
