modesty.


"Shyness and modesty of men is an excellent virtue, but the shyness and modesty of women is even more so." - Hazrat Abu bakr (r)

"Modesty (haya) and maintaining one's honour and dignity are of primary importance in preserving the moral fibre of any society. This is why modesty has been called the ornament of a woman, which protects her from many sins and which prevents ill-intentioned men from daring to have bad thoughts about her. This haya has been made a part of her nature to safeguard her from being abused by immoral men." (Haya)

"Modesty is valued in Islam, for both sexes. Islam doesn't teach one to be 'shy,' Islam teaches one to respect the opposite sex and more importantly, to respect yourself. So in general when one (whether man or woman) does not raise their voice often, does not use vulgarities, does not say the first rude thing that pops into their head, is polite, does not back-bite, and does not like to argue for the sake of argument - that's a sign of excellent Muslim upbringing and is a valued quality." - (Yahoo!Answers)


Taking a break from CAD and hydro-cyclones leads to this.


Sometimes having a mild FYP breakdown is all you need to see the big picture. To get the wake-up call. To reach back to your faith.

InsyaAllah. One step at a time.
