An effort in f a c i l i t a t i o n

“If you have no shame, do whatever you like”!

We human beings have come through different ages in history: Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age. Historians tell us that these ages are distinguished by the development of technology.

Today technology has reduced women to a mere tool in the hands of men!

It would be appropriate to call the contemporary age, the 21st century, as “the Obscene Age”!

This is an era where nudity is riding the crest of the society.

Today world has reached such a stage in obscenity that if you were to talk about moral aspects, man-of-the-obscene-age will look at you in a curious way as if doubting your very masculinity! 

Modesty, shame, honour, bashfulness which Islam calls as hayaa is lost.

There is NO SENSE of shame whatsoever!

How true was our glorious Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam when he said ‘If you have no shame, then do whatever you like’! (Read the full hadeeth here)

Nudity is promoted through movies, through cartoon shows, through print media, televisions channels and even through the so-called cricket in the name of IPL !

The best job is done by the advertising media in spreading obscenity and vulgarity among people.

It is so embarrassing to sit and watch even a News Broadcast with one’s family. You come across a dozen commercial breaks that are fully loaded with obscenity!

I dare to ask the Deodorant companies and advertisement agencies, are your mothers dead? Do you ever have daughters? Will you strip your sisters and make them run behind a man using your own deodorant brand?

What is the purpose of a deodorant? To attract 100 girls!

What message you are conveying through such advertisements?

You want to sell the product. Sell! Why the hell are you creating such filthy advertisements?

The Television channels have no manners whatsoever. They simply shift the ball to the Advertising Standard Council. They have approved, so we are telecasting!

Have you mortgaged your brain in the Bank of Obscenity Unlimited? Nay! materialism has made you worse than animals. For, some animals do not mate in public!!

The meat of the matter is whether it is government or television channels or advertising media – all have their own definition of obscenity.

For them a girl ‘dressed’ in just half-a-meter cloth is not nudity! It is progress! It is liberation! They are happy that they have freed women of the burden of dress!

Man has gone so far in shamelessness that today modesty is considered as a sign of backwardness!

People are upset at Muslim woman dressed in hijab because she curtails their freedom of gazing!

Man must understand the natural laws of Islam. The only alternative to help create a peaceful world.

Let me refer to this widely mentioned reference:

Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkul Karman,” ‘The mother of Yemen’s revolution,’ when asked about her Hijab by journalists and how it is not proportionate with her level of intellect and education, replied:

“Man in early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I’m wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It’s the removal of clothes again that is a regression back to the ancient times.” Source

Man must submit to the Guidance of his Creator. Man must go back to Modesty, his natural root.

“Satan threatens you with poverty and orders you to immorality, while Allah promises you forgiveness from Him and bounty. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing”. (Surah al Baqarah 2: 268)

Jazakallahu Khayra for reading this post.

  1. Very true, if they really want to be modern they should reflect this in their thinking not in showing obscenity or reducing clothes.May Allah protect us all from this evil.

  6. […] When we converse with our parents, we need to be humble and generous by using noble, kind and respectful words and be generous in our talk. Contrast this with the rude approach adopted by the younger generation of this shameful era. […]
