Umm Hallad (may Allah be pleased with her) was one of the Medina Associates of the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam). She sent her son Hallad to battle with the Jews of Banu Qurayza. Some Muslims to learn that the Muslim army returned and Hallad fell Shahid’s death, rushed to the house of Umm Hallad to notify her of the tragedy. Muslim woman took her shawl and ran to the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) to learn the fate of her son. One man saw her in a scarf and asked in amazement:
-Hallad was killed, and you're still in a scarf!
Umm Hallad, as a practicing Muslim, gave the following surprising answer:
- I lost Hallad, but have not lost a sense of shame!
You be moral
The messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
«Be moral, before other women, and let your women will also be moral. Be nice to the fathers, so that your children are well treated. The person to whom will come a brother, bringing his apology, whether he is right or wrong. Otherwise in Paradise he will not be able to come to me at the source of Kawthar». (Hakim, IV, 170/7258)
The veil of shame
A group of women from Sham (Damascus) came to Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) Aisha said:
- I think you - the ladies who attend public baths.
The women answered:
- Yes. Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) said:
- But I heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: "Any woman who take off her clothes out of her husband, tearing the veil that is between her and Allah!". (Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, Ahmad)
