SHYNESS IS FAITH
A VIRGIN GIRL on her first day with her HUSBAND is nothing but VERY SHY. That’s GOOD MANNERS. Shyness is part of a HUMAN CHARACTER and those who do not have it are MISSING OUT on a big part of HUMAN EXCELLENCE. A SCHOLAR who knows ALMOST ALL, in most cases is SHY from RELEASING VERDICTS untill otherwise he is very CERTAIN. He knows that it’s a FRAGILE RESPONSIBILITY. A teacher in school will respect FEMALE STUDENTS and avoiding looking at them with eyes that SUGGEST the OBVIOUS. BOSSES at work PLACES by fear of THE MOST HIGH will know that PAYING THEIR STAFF in time is the right thing to do. THEY will always FEEL SHY and AWKWARD if a day passes without pay. CHILDREN HOME, of relevant ages both boys and girls should feel shy DEALING with THEIR RESPECTIVE PARENTS just to mention a few. In everyday dealings, one should SHY AWAY from doing VICES. Feel shy CHEATING, feel shy STEALING and engaging in SHODDY DEALS. Feel SHY WITH ALLAH, the Lord of the worlds. Meet him on the day you are PARTING THE WORLD SHY. Feel shy DOING SIN. Feel SHY WITH YOURSELF standing before a mirror and SEEING THE REAL YOU. SHYNESS is MODESTY and actually FAITH ITSELF. And that’s GOOD MANNERS.
وعن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مر على رجل من الأنصار وهو يعظ أخاه في الحياء، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم:”دعه فإن الحياء من الإيمان”
((متفق عليه)) .
Ibn ‘Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) passed by a man of the Ansar who was admonishing his brother regarding shyness. Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Leave him alone, for modesty is a part of Iman.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
