I was reading this blog about Haya and Modesty earlier well basically it reminded me of something I had read last week in a book.
basically it was a hadith about a lady female companion, May Allah be pleased with her. She (RA) was looking for her son when the muslims were returning from an expedition. She was informed he was martyred.. In the time of grief she went to the Prophet salallahu alahi wasalam to confirm this. However even in her time and moments of trauma and grief she had not forgot to cover her face, etc. . The other muslims commented on this and She (RA) told them:
“I might have lost my son but I didn’t lose my haya (modesty). “
(Subhanallah… such spirit.. their hearts were so imbued with faith)
The reference for the above hadith is in the book of Abu dawuud, I can’t remember the exact detail but it was 2488 I think.
