I’m not completely sure how to phrase the question, what is the importance of self-restraint in Islam? Is self-restraint commonly taught in Islam or an important part of Islam?
So basically recently I’ve been seeing a lot of things about rpe and sexual harassment online and a lot of the responses are that women shouldn’t be revealing and the blame is moved towards women because of what they wear and their attire is blamed for the sexual harassment and potential rpe. I understand how it may be part of the reason why for example their may be some sort of attraction towards people wearing those clothes but even so I feel that being taught self restraint and having some self restraint is even more important. If people had self restraint to begin with it likely wouldn’t have even happened. And if it was mainly due to clothes then people in burqas and hijabs and clothes that are deemed modest wouldn’t face such things but this is also common. I feel that it’s ridiculous to blame women for getting raped because of the clothes they wear and if self restraint was more commonly taught in Muslim households maybe this sort of stuff wouldn’t happen as much.
