Book Name:Shan e Usman e Ghani

Commenting on his own incredible qualities, Sayyiduna ‘Usman-e-Ghani      رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ relates: I have neither sung any useless poetry and nor wished ever to do so during the pre-Islamic era of ignorance and neither after embracing Islam. The (right) hand by which I took Bay’at (pledge) in the blessed hands of the Most Noble Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, I have never touched my private area with that hand. (Tareekh Ibn ‘Asakir, vol. 39,pp. 225)

He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ further states: I fold my hands and limbs due to being shy of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ when I take a ritual bath in the enclosed room.

(Mirqat-ul-Mafatih, Hadees 5071)


Dear Islamic brothers! This was the modesty of Sayyiduna ‘Usman-e-Ghani رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ whereas the miserable state of our immodesty and shamelessness is that sometimes people watch obscene scenes with keen interest when alone or with the whole family; since mobile phones and the internet has become prevalent, unimaginable sins are committing, that have become quite easy مَـعَـاذَ الـلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ; many people would be squandering their time by drowning themselves into the ocean of sins through social media in search of progress  and worldly information thinking to keep themselves up to date all the time. At marriage ceremonies and other occasions immoral activities take place in which there is mixing of men and women and people celebrate such events with great fun and festivities. On such events, mostly houses depict the picture of cinema houses and concert avenues; unveiled women are seen roaming around men who stare at them as if it is their right to do so.

In short! Our society is quickly submerging into the marsh of obscenity, vulgarity and lewdness and especially pushing our new generation into moral & ethical decline and evil-practices. In absence of modesty and moral values in our society, we do not hesitate to commit an abundance of sins in broad daylight. Unfortunately, the flood of sins has destroyed the lives of Muslims. Lying, backbiting, tale-telling, theft, murder, gambling, bribery, giving and taking interest, adultery, breach of trust, disobedience to parents, hurting Muslims without a Shar’i reason, malice and spite, arrogance, jealousy, etc. are being frequently committed in our societies today. It seems that modesty has nothing to do with us.
