Arabic translation:جدار من الحياء - جدار للحياء - جدار الحياء
Explanation:
I checked the given trasnlation in the specified site, yet modesty is translated literally as تواضع - even though we need more context to figure out the purpose of the 'wall', but حياء with جدار feels better than جدار and تواضع - especially if there is a cover nuance somewhere
