The Thing I Couldn’t STAND About Modesty Talks!

When I found this video I was pretty much expecting it to blow off Modesty and its importance, but after completing the video I became so excited to share it; because it is exactly spot on!

Dressing modestly is not about, first and foremost “MEN-ARE-VISUAL-CREATURES-SO-COVER-UP” … no…

This kind of thinking, in all cultures and walks of life, is exactly what leads to the Sharia law (see photo below). It is what leads women to not see their bodies as a temple of the Holy Spirit, as created by God for a beautiful purpose, as something that has dignity and deserves respect.

Also, these same sources that claim men are more visual (which, yes, men are aroused more by vision than most women) also claim that women are not aroused by vision. I can tell you, as a 24-year-old young lady that this is entirely false. If you take a look at the secular world it proves this theory to be incorrect as well.

Biologically, Scientifically, men are aroused by their sight more often than not. Women are usually aroused more by what they hear (not to be crass but, this is why “foreplay” is encouraged…). But as mentioned before; this is not the sole reason for modesty and it does NOT mean that men are excused from dressing modestly either.

Dressing Modestly (AKA, Classy) is, first and foremost that WE are created in the image and likeness of God (as are men), and as temples of the Holy Spirit, dressing CLASSY gives ourselves the respect we deserve! This, in turn, aids others, women, and men, to do the same and also treat US with more respect.

There is quite a bit more about this to be spoken of but for now, enjoy this video and go give her a thumbs up!

  1. Actually, what Muslims are recommended to wear in terms of modest clothing can get varied. Some sects follow full coverage except the eyes, some show nothing and some show the face, hands and feet. And then there are Muslims who don’t wear modest clothing. It’s all up to the individual. Modesty also means the same to us as you’ve mentioned on your blog. It’s just that in some countries it’s the CULTURE that leads to the women wearing full veiling(forced and not forced), not Islam.

  2. Oh, and modesty’s prescribed on men as well but you don’t see a lot of men following that. That might have something to do with misogynism. In Islam, men also have modesty requirements in both clothing and behaviour-wise 😊
