ση мσ∂єѕту

The eye of Modesty is concealed in the heart of all Beings

See your dealings with Allah from that eye and not the outward eye

The outer eye sees desire but the eye of modesty is from Fitrah, purity

When it is said “the heart is dead”, it is actually the death of modesty

Shyness is only a branch of modesty but caution is complete modesty

Learn to break the harm before it breaks you, that is Muhammad’s way, our Master

Suspect your actions before you render them forth, that is the way of Umar our exemplar

Uthman’s modesty touched the Prophet so much that he became shy of Uthman

Become modest Oh wretch! Only then could you find your heart intact without stains

When that happens, then you can set the soul into true worship of Allah

The rest of this poem can be found in your willingness and ability to change for Allah’s sake
