Hadith Explanation

Judge Your Soul

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When lewdness is part of anything, it becomes defective; and when Haya is part of anything, it becomes beautiful.” [Tirmidhi]

Modesty and maintaining one’s honour are of primary importance in preserving the moral fibre of any society. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has made it easy for us to maintain the integrity of society by making modesty beautiful. Whoever has a wholesome, unaltered Fitrah (nature) finds the practiser of modesty appealing and charming and he/she finds vulgarity ugly. It is only a person whose mind and soul have gotten twisted who finds the opposite attractive.

Judge the wholesomeness of your soul by what attracts you.

If somebody’s face got partially paralyzed and their mouth got twisted from one end, wouldn’t it bother them? If you tried to feed them or give them water to drink, it would pour out from the lopsided end. Having a lopsided soul is more alarming than this, because it is the wholesomeness of the soul that allows a person to go to Paradise. “Except to him who will come to Allah with a sound heart (wholesome soul), and Paradise will be brought near to the God-fearing, and Hell will be fully uncovered for the perverse.” [Quran: Surah Ash-Shu’ara, Ayaat 89-91]

On the Day of Judgement we will be inside out. The people who took the greatest care to preserve their soul from getting soiled by Allah’s disobedience will be the most beautiful, regardless of their physical appearance on earth; while those who neglected to follow His instructions will turn up as ugly as the hearts and souls their harboured on earth. Then only good things will enter Paradise while the perverse will go to Hell.
