Jealousy and Modesty


Praised be to Allah the god of the worlds, and pray to Allah prophet Mohammed, all his family, and companions, then:

From the charms of our religion the taking care of nobility of characters, the prophet-peace be upon him-said: "Verily I have been but sent to perfect the most noble of manners." [validated by Alabani]

«إنما بعثت لأتمم صالح الأخلاق»

And when the prophet-peace be upon him-was sent, he confirmed the ignorance era good manners, and canceled their bad manners, and rectified what need rectifying.

And from the good manners of the ignorance era: the jealousy of the man on his unmarriageable ones, but some of them were going too far that they surpassed the limits. Some buried their daughters’ alive; fearing monstrosity. Therefore, the legislator prohibited this, rectified and improved the jealousy part and made it from the paths of the faith, the prophet-peace be upon him-said: "No one more jealous than Allah" [Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim]

«لا شيء أغير من الله»

And the prophet -peace and blessings be upon him- said: "Verily Allah gets jealous and the believer gets jealous and the jealousy of Allah is to see a believer doing unlawful acts" [Narrated by Muslim]

«إن الله يغار، وإن المؤمن يغار، وغيرة الله أن يأتي المؤمن ما حرم عليه»

And he -peace and blessings be upon him- said when the sun eclipsed: "O community of Muhammad! ByAllah, there is no-one more jealous than Allah..." [Narrated by Bukhari]

«يا أمة محمد, ما أحدٌ أغير من اللهِ... »

And the prophet said-peace be upon him-" Allah likes some of the jealousy” [Classified Hasan by Albani]

«إن من الغَيْرة ما يحبُّ الله...»

and when Saâd son of Ôbada-may Allah pleased with him-if I saw a man with my woman I would have hit him with the unfoliated part of my sword, the prophet-peace be upon him- said: “do you wonder from Saad's jealousy, I am more jealous than Saâd, And Allah is more jealous” [Narrated by Bukhari] (unfoliated: to hit him with the edge of the sword not with its side, at which the one who hits with edge intends to kill while the one who hits with the side indent disciplining)

« لو رأيت رجلا مع امرأتي لضربته بالسيف غير مصفح ، فبلغ ذلك النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال (أتعجبون من غيرة سعد، لأنا أغير منه، و الله أغير منى) »

And the companions-may Allah pleased with them- endowed with this prophetic manner and kept on it, its matter the same as the essentials of the faith and its paths, so it wasn't strange that some of them were killed or kill in order to preserve this issue. Ibn Hashem recited that a woman from the Arabs came with some earning (what is brought to the markets to be sold there) and she sold it in the market of Kaynokaâ (one of the tribes of the Jewish) and she sat at a jeweler there, and they insisted on her to show her face but she refused, so the jeweler came to the edge of her cloth and tied it to her seat -without her notice- so when she stood up she was exposed, so they laughed on her, and she yielded, then a man from the Muslims leaped on the jeweler and killed him-and he was Jewish-so the Jewish people pressured on that Muslim and killed him, so the prophet-peace be upon him-walked to them, and surrounded them until they followed his judgment, so he evacuated them to Al Sham.

In this way the ancestors continued, and the Muslims never left or even neglect this manner even at the week times that the Islamic nation passed by, like while when the crusaders were occupying some of the Islamic countries in Al Sham and their occupation continued for about two centuries, it was a time that some may think that they are staying until the landing of Issa the son of Mary, at this time the historians recorded that the Muslims were scorning them and looking to them as cuckolds, at which the one of them may be walking with his wife in the road and she meets a friend, so he stands away to let his wife speaks with her friend as she wants.

Some examples of the nonfeasance of the jealousy:

-In our countries-May Allah fill it with obedience-we are still better than the others in this issue, although some are exceptions.

-You can see some of them in his car, and his wife gets outs from the car and takes too long in a conversation and he should have been with her.

-And you see one of them, his wife in solitude with foreign men; with the driver in the car, or with the seller in a shop, or with the physician in the clinic, or somewhere else, and he sees nothing wrong with that, and the prophet-peace be upon him said-"whenever a man combines with a women apart, the devil shall be their third" [validated by Albani]

«ألا لا يخلون رجل بامرأة إلا كان ثالثهما الشيطان»

-And also the man leaves his woman or the women in his custodianship going out with transparent, describing, or short clothes.

-Also the getting out of the man with his wife and his unmarriageable ones in the public crowds, at which his women may associate with men, or she is exposed to their regards.

-Also another example, the man leaves his woman to travel without any of her unmarriageable persons, the messenger of Allah-peace be upon him-said: "No man combines with a women in solitude unless she is with one of her unmarriageable ones, and no woman travels unless she is with one of her unmarriageable ones. So a man stands up and said: Messenger of Allah "my woman gets out on pilgrimage, and I was requested in so and so of invasions, so he said: Go and pilgrimage with your woman" [Narrated by Muslim]

«لا يخلون رجل بامرأة إلا ومعها ذو محرم. ولا تسافر المرأة إلا مع ذي محرم فقام رجل فقال: يا رسول الله ! إن امرأتي خرجت حاجة. وإني اكتتبت في غزوة كذا وكذا. قال: انطلق فحج مع امرأتك»

This is a militant in the sake of Allah, the prophet-peace open him-ordered him to leave the holy war to accompany his wife, that went in a holy travel which is pilgrimage, and with the purist and most pious people, and even she has already gone, the prophet-peace be upon him-said "go and pilgrimage with your woman".

«انطلق فَحُج مع امرأتك»

The reasons of the proceeding:

What has been mentioned from examples is a reality happening and seen, although the common behavior is the preservation of jealousy. So what is the reason of what is happening from some people in the absence of jealousy and modesty? Now, let’s speak about the rank of the modesty and its stature in Islam.


The modesty is one the paths of faith, as it came in the speech of the prophet-peace be upon him-, so whenever his modesty decreases his faith decreases, and in the two valid books the prophet-peace be upon him- said "The modesty only brings good" [Bukhari and Muslim]

«الحياءُ لا يأتي إلا بخير»

And in a recitation of Muslim "All the modesty is good"

«الحياء خير كله. قال: أنه قال: الحياء كله خير»

and it is recited about Salman the Persian-May Allah be pleased with him-that he said:
If Allah wanted to doom someone he takes from him the modesty, so when the modesty is taken you find him only as an abominable disgusting one"

And the poet said:

I swear by Allah that there is no good in life nor the world if the modesty is gone

As long as the one has modesty he is good and the steam remains as long its cover is still.

And another said:

I see the one with no modesty nor honesty as if he is naked among the people.

And the slightness of the modesty at the woman has particular reasons, like:

1-The leniency of the upbringing of it, and habit ever remains:

If you rectify the branches it became right, and it never soften if it is wood.

2-The over association of woman with the foreigners, and the over talking with them.

3-The association with people with low modesty, or the repeating of their viewing, either resulting from traveling abroad or seeing them in the markets and parks, or watching them in the episodes, or something like that, because the good and bad manners is achieved by association.

4-And it might be from the most important reasons: the over getting out of the woman from her home, the great and almighty Allah said: "And abide in your houses" [al-Ahzab 33:33]

{وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ}

Transliteration: Wa Qarna Fī Buyūtikunna

And El Tabarany recited with a good bond that the prophet-peace be upon him-said "The woman is a private part, and if she gone out from her home the devil raises his glance to her, and she is never nearer to her God than the deepest part of her house" [validated by Albani] [the devil raises his glance upon her and covet in her].

«المرأة عورة، وإنها إذا خرجت من بيتها استشرفها الشيطان، وإنها لا تكون أقرب إلى الله منها في قعر بيتها»

And the prophet-peace be upon him-said "Don't prevent your women from the mosques, and their homes better for them"[validated by Albani]

«لا تمنعوا نساءكم المساجد، وبيوتُهُن خيرٌ لهن»

AlDomuaty the memorizing-may Allah have mercy on him-said:
" EbnKhozuma and a group of scientists declared that her praying in home better than the mosque, even if the mosque was the mosque of Makka or Almadina or Jerusalem".

-And the reasonable and the sagacious one should realize that what some of the Islamic countries has reached from degeneration and change didn't happen in one time, but began usually with silly begins till the situation reaches what we see now, so pay attention.

Finally, you Muslim, verify your testimony that Mohamed is a messenger of Allah, so that you believe him in what he said, and obey him in what he ordered, and don't commit what he prohibited and restrained, and don't you ever be inconsistent with his order in the sake of your fancy or in conformity with anyone, the great and almighty Allah said "So let those beware who dissent from the Prophet’s order, lest fitnah strike them or a painful punishment." [An-Nur 24:63]

{فَلْيَحْذَرِ الَّذِينَ يُخَالِفُونَ عَنْ أَمْرِهِ أَن تُصِيبَهُمْ فِتْنَةٌ أَوْ يُصِيبَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ}

Transliteration: Lā Taj`alū Du`ā'a Ar-Rasūli Baynakum Kadu`ā'i Ba`đikum Ba`đāan Qad Ya`lamu Allāhu Al-Ladhīna Yatasallalūna Minkum Liwādhāan Falyaĥdhari Al-Ladhīna Yukhālifūna `An 'Amrihi 'An Tuşībahum Fitnatun 'Aw Yuşībahum `Adhābun 'Alīmun
