A very important and much needed topic for discussion in todays times. Where not only the meaning of the word is being changed but its interpretation is being altered also. It is important we teach the true meaning of Modesty in Islam and also important that we do not just limit the word modesty to external dress. Therefore we have seperated our sessions starting with internal modesty – a quality of the heart and mind and then moving on to external modesty.
Note regarding external modesty lesson – It is important that we do not dictate what specific clothing type is haram/halal upon students but rather teach them the tools to decide for themselves if a particular item falls into the modest or immodest category.
When teaching both lessons i never gave my own judgements or looked down upon anyones certain ideas of dress. The entire purpose of the sessions were to get students to think twice about what they choose to wear and why along with the true meaning of Modesty in Islam.
Any questions please get in touch
