223. Amīr al-mu’minīn, peace be upon him, said: Whomever modesty clothes with its dress people cannot see his defects. 
 If a person adorns himself with the quality of modesty then it prevents him from committing evil acts. Therefore, he has no evil for the people to find in him. Even if a bad act is ever committed by him he does not commit it openly because of his feeling of modesty lest the people notice him.
