Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:
AbulMalih said: Some women of Syria came to Aisha. She asked them: From whom are you? They replied: From the people of Syria. She said: Perhaps you belong to the place where women enter hot baths (for washing ). The said: Yes. She said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) say: If a woman puts off her clothes in a place other than her house, she tears the veil between her and Allah, the Exalted.
Abu Dawud said: This is the tradition narrated by Jarir, and it is more perfect. Jarir did not mention Abu al-Malih. He said (on the authority of 'A'ishah) that the Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) said.
Abu Dawud | 3:3999
Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As:
The Prophet (Peach be upon him) said: After some time the lands of the non-Arabs will be conquered for you, and there you will find houses called hammamat (hot baths). so men should not enter them (to wash) except in lower garments, and forbid the women to enter them except a sick or one who is in a child-bed.
Abu Dawud | 3:4000
The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) saw a man washing in a public place without a lower garment. So he mounted the pulpit, praised and extolled Allah and said: Allah is characterised by modesty and concealment. So when any of you washes, he should conceal himself.
Abu Dawud | 3:4001
The tradition mentioned above has also been transmitted by Ya'la from the Prophet (Peach be upon him) through a different chain of narrators.
Abu Dawud said:
The former is more perfect.

The Messenger of Allah (Peach be upon him) sat with us and my thigh was uncovered. He said: Do you not know that thigh is a private part ?

Narrated Al-Miswar b. Makhramah:

Bahz b. Hakim said that his father told on the authority of his grandfather:
I said: Messenger of Allah, from whom should we conceal our private parts and to whom can we show? He replied: conceal your private parts except from your wife and from whom your right hands possess (slave-girls).
I then asked: Messenger of Allah, (what should we do), if the people are assembled together?
He replied: If it is within your power that no one looks at it, then no one should look at it.
I then asked: Messenger of Allah if one of us is alone, (what should he do)?
He replied: Allah is more entitled than people that bashfulness should be shown to him.
Abu Dawud | 3:4006
