Does fasting cause modesty?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: God’s servants have been protected by Salaat, Zakat, and endeavour to fast in order that their organs and body parts rest, and their eyes become modest, and their body and soul become humble,and their hearts become submissive (to God), selfishness and arrogance leave them…and fasting, and sticking of the stomach to the back (of the human being) causes modesty [1].
