Good deed #493 – Guard your nakedness

On the authority of Mu`aawiya ibn Haida, who said: “I said: O Messenger of Allah, which of our nakedness is allowed, and of which must we beware? The Prophet answered, “Guard your nakedness except from your wife or those whom your right hand possesses.” (So it is permissible for both spouses to look at and touch the body of his or her companion even the private parts). He said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, what about if the relatives live together with each other?’ The Prophet answered: “If you can make sure that no one ever sees your nakedness, then do so.” He said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, what about when one is alone?’ The Prophet said: “Allah is more deserving of your modesty than are the people”. ”
[Ahmad, Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi]
