Zulikha,
Know that what I speak to you regarding your modesty goes
beyond what you see
Is not just about your chastity
And obviously not about what you see in the magazines
It doesn’t stop at trying to appear responsible
To those out there who care about your outlook
It’s not just about lowering your gaze
So they could tell that you’re shy and chaste
It goes beyond looking plain- being different from those who
dress insane
Zulikha,
Your modesty is also about what and how you speak
It’s about being soft at heart in actions and speech
It’s about not talking at all when there’s no need for it
It’s about saying the truth regardless of how bad it feels.
Hear me O Zulikha,
Your modesty entails your earnings and your spendings
Yes, it’s your savings but
You don’t have to go wasting
Stay away from luxuries that can be done away with
And that is good for you if only you knew it.
by Zulikha Idris Babalola
