Surah Noor (24) 08/12/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 24 (The Light)

Preventative measures for the preservation of chastity

The Quran requires both males and females to keep guard of their chastity and does so in the broadest possible terms encouraging a morally upright society.

Verse 30 “Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do”

Verse 30 addresses the males and verse 31 addresses the females requiring them to be modest in their interaction with each other ensuring the preservation of their chastity.  Both these verses are almost identical except that where it pertains to women (Verse 31) an emphasis is made on the dress code, requiring them to dress modestly and not in a revealing or enticing way.    The overarching message is one of modesty and preservation of chastity for both sexes.

Continues tomorrow InshaAllah…
