As blushing will sometimes make a whore pass for a virtuous woman, so modesty may make a fool seem a man of sense.
Modesty in Islam. What is it?
Physical modesty is to do with covering up and wearing baggy clothes and masking every part of the body that might attract the opposite sex and etc.
Mental modety is to do with what you think and how to think about stuff/life and all it's prettiness and rubbishness and being able to control your thoughts etc.
Verbal modesty, being polite more than anything. Make silence your best friend and avoid all confrontations etc.
Virtual Modesty? I think that's all to do with being modest on the internet with people you only know of over the net, have never met in person and never will.
and I'm sure there are other forms of modesty and there's a lot more to the ones already mentioned.
It's a very difficult thing to attain and something that makes you look like you're either super naive or just super shy. It occurs in some people naturally but I question their intelligence and they just look shady, like they have something to hide.
Anyways all I wanted to say was I find modesty very weird. For example, when people talk about it and how big a thing it is in Islam, they aren't being very modest. A bit silly and ironic.
This makes those people less realiable and hence I won't take their word seriously. They're just big show offs in my brain.
I might be sitting on the wrong side of pedantism but I'm not very modest. I don't think I'll ever be modest because with me what you see is what you get; what I am and not someone who hides away, prenetending to be selfless when the end goal in their mind is the best possible life after death.
Modesty, tis a virtue not often found among poets, for almost every one of them thinks himself the greatest in the world.
I wonder why God decided that we should be modest as humans?
You can't be a modest Muslim if you accomplish something and then brag about or feel content that you'll be getting credits for doing good. Surely not?
How can you be somebody when you pretend to be a nobody?
Modesty and selflessness is linked. Since I don't belive that Muslim or any other person of faith has the ability to be selfless, I don't trust people who claim or appear modest. They annoy me BIG TIME.
Modesty over-rated or what?
