Hadith Explanation

Bashful with Allah

Bahz bin Hakim (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that his grandfather once asked the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam), “O Prophet of Allah! With whom should we observe the Awrah?” He replied, “Protect your Awrah from everyone except your wife and your slave-women.” I asked, “O Prophet of Allah! Sometimes a person is alone?” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, “Allah is more deserving of bashfulness from you.” [Tirmidhi]


Once the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was going somewhere when he saw a servant publicly taking a bath in the nude. He said to him, “I don’t find you bashful with Allah. Consider yourself dismissed. We don’t need your service.” [Az-Zawajir]
