The Effects Of Shyness Upon Finding A Good Husband, Oh My Muslim Sister!
All praises belong to Allaah may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family, companions and those who follow his guidance.
In an effort to find a suitable spouse some of our Muslim sisters often resort to impermissible, demeaning methods such as free-mixing with men via the Internet, chat rooms, marriage websites, social networks, sending pictures and the like.
Unfortunately some of our sisters have been deceived into believing this to be the more effective technique for obtaining a spouse, removing from themselves the veil of shyness, modesty and dignity.
