The clothing of a woman depicts her upbringing by her father, the sense of honour (gheerah) of her brother, the manliness of her husband, her keenness to emulate her mother and above all, her conciousness of Allah watching her.
This is why they said to Maryam (AS):
Surah Maryam, Verse 28:
يَا أُخْتَ هَارُونَ مَا كَانَ أَبُوكِ امْرَأَ سَوْءٍ وَمَا كَانَتْ أُمُّكِ بَغِيًّا
O sister of Haroun! your father was not a bad man, nor, was your mother an unchaste woman.
(English – Shakir)
They reminded her of her brother, father and mother. If these people are upright, she will also be upright.
A pious person said “Revealing clothes on a woman is a sign that Allah is angry with her, as He removed the clothing of Adam and Hawwaa (as) when He was displeased with them.”
A young girl says, “When I see a young female exposing and revealing herself, I look at her parents and think of the verse:٠
Stop them, indeed they will be questioned.
This causes me to have even more modesty so that my mother should not be questioned.
Most of that which Allah made impermissible in this world will be allowed in Jannah, e.g. wine. One thing that is not allowed here and there is nakedness.
In fact, a great bounty [of Jannah] is to be properly covered. Describing Jannah, Allah says:
Surah Taha, Verse 118:
إِنَّ لَكَ أَلَّا تَجُوعَ فِيهَا وَلَا تَعْرَىٰ
Surely it is (ordained) for you that you shall not be hungry therein nor bare of clothing;
(English – Shakir)
One of the most beautiful messages I have read regarding modesty.
