عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ الإِيمَانُ بِضْعٌ وَسِتُّونَ شُعْبَةً، وَالْحَيَاءُ شُعْبَةٌ مِنَ الإِيمَانِ ‏”‌‏.‏

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Iman (faith) consists of more than sixty branches (i.e. parts). And haya’ (pious shyness) is a part of faith.”

Narrated in Sahih al-Bukhari, hadith no. 9
Grade: Sahih (authentic)
Translation adapted from sunnah.com


  1. Faith consists of over sixty parts, with haya’ being one of them.
  2. Among the virtues of the Believers is to have haya’ from committing evil and leaving the orders of Allah and Rasulullah (ﷺ).

Let us strive to have haya’ and solidify our faith!
