The world which is now embraced while reclining on a couch, grabbed in the palm of our hands presents a quality which was once upon a time praiseworthy. This quality which is common to real women while relatively rare to the new pitiful class. The demand grows to activate it as it may have been uprooted. This priceless quality is known as modesty, bashfulness or shyness. Every man desired to marry a pure chaste woman. However this lightning roller coaster ride engineered by Satan himself allows man the opportunity to feel invincible for a few seconds. A devilish creature seeking to eradicate the natural and pure exposition of life.
Allah Ta’laa warns you about this open enemy,
“those who believe, do not follow the footsteps of Satan. And whoever follows the footsteps of Satan, (should know that) he orders (one to commit) shameless acts and evil deeds” (Chapter 24, Verse 21- Al-Quraan)
The question toppling our minds is, “should we lose hope?” No, at no point is there any spot for despondency! In the same verse, The All Knowing, The All Hearing gives us every reason to be hopeful.
And had it not been for the grace of Allah upon you, and His mercy, not a single person from you would have ever attained purity. But Allah purifies whomsoever He wills. And Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing (Chapter 24, Verse 21- Al-Quraan)

Pausing The Roller Coaster Ride
Returning back to our senses, one would realize that none of the above motivates one to adopt this rare quality but lets turn our hearts to the One who has created you. What does the Almighty say regarding those females who choose a pure life regardless of their unawareness of their surroundings?
“Surely, those who level a false charge against the chaste, unaware and believing women are cursed in this world and the Hereafter, and for them there is a mighty punishment” (Chapter 24, Verse 23- Al-Quran)
Take note of the highlighted qualities mentioned above in the verse of the Quraan, these are ideal ingredients which a woman should aspire to possess. Such that in the event of a really unfortunate circumstance whereby a person levels a false charge then Allah Ta’laa takes it upon Himself to curse such a person in both the worlds resulting in a heavy punishment to be meted out against such a criminal.
They may label you as backward when you choose a praiseworthy quality which Allah Ta’laa Himself selects الۡغٰفِلٰتِ- al-Ghafilaat- totally unaware and naive. Remember while these “backward” thoughts are desirous of pressurizing you, one needs to focus beyond that and steer clear from the footsteps of Satan and embrace the call of your Sustainer.
We implore Allah Ta’laa to guide us and purify us through this medium of His Grace and His Mercy alone as He has stated,
“And had it not been for the grace of Allah upon you, and His mercy, not a single person from you would have ever attained purity. But Allah purifies whomsoever He wills. And Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing” (Chapter 24, Verse 21- Al-Quraan)
