"What’s Wrong With A Lustful Gaze?"[using large font size is not allowed]

 

Many of us who are used to watching The Bachelor, SINbad or Temptation Island, or are addicted to Bollywood movies, or enjoy the company of people of the opposite gender, may wonder what’s wrong with lustfully staring at the attractive features of the opposite gender? Perhaps one saying of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) sums it all up:

 

“The unrestrained glance is one of the poisoned arrows of Shaytan"

 

 

Therefore, a secret lustful look at a person of opposite gender has been compared by the Prophet to an arrow from Shaytan that:

 

 

• It poisons our hearts (what exactly do you gain out if it apart from the momentary thrill of having sinned? Is there anything worse than enjoying what Allah hates?)

 

 

• It ruins our intentions (am I doing it for Allah or to check out the crowd?)

 

 

• It gives rise to false hopes and desires ("I wish I could...", "Maybe she'll...", "I think he does..." when you know you can't, she won't, and he doesn't!)

 

 

• It distorts our perception of 'reality' (love is not 'at first sight' but lust is, a wife is not picked up off streets, real men don't have to flirt to be noticed, and there is nothing 'casual' about sex)

 

 

• It deprives us from enjoying and concentrating in Prayers (it's very hard to remember Allah while replaying last night's activities in one's head)

 

 

• It gives rise to constant feeling of guilt and depression (have you ever actually felt better about yourself after you did it than before?)

 

 

• It sometimes leads to sleepless nights (when fantasies seem so 'real'...)

 

 

• It renders our heart weak for continuous Shaytanic attacks (through addictions to music, fashion, self-image, explicit sights and sounds, etc)

 

 

• It promotes hypocrisy (does the 'shell' match the 'core'?)

 

 

• It eventually leads to Zina (unlawful intimacy: the darkness that draws one deeper and deeper until one is incapable of escaping even if willing, except he/she who Allah guides)

 

 

• Above all, it diminishes our love for and fear of Allah (you wouldn't be doing it if you thought about how Great and Loving the One you are turning away from, instead if how 'small' or 'innocent' your sin)

 

 

Allah commands us: "Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their private parts; that will make for greater purity for them..." [24:30]. In the verse following this one, Allah commands “the believing women†in the similar manner.

• It gives rise to false hopes and desires ("I wish I could...", "Maybe she'll...", "I think he does..." when you know you can't, she won't, and he doesn't!)

Very true what soon follows after the gaze

when you know you can't, she won't, and he doesn't! :sl: :j:

 

 

SO BEST THING WHY TO GET SAD ,AVOID GAZING

 

MY SUGGESTION

AVOID THE GAZING HERE AND THERE and MARRY ONE AND GAZE HIM/HER 24/7 :sl:

In Paradise, your wife will be so beautiful that you will be staring at her for 40 years, not being able to take your eyes off of her, while she gets more and more beautiful by the second.

 

Allah subhaanahu wa ta'aala says in the Qur'aan, what means:

 

Therein are brought round for them trays of gold and goblets, and therein is all that souls desire and eyes find sweet. And ye are immortal therein. [Qur'aan, Surat Az-Zukhruf, Ayah 71]

 

Why does Allah stress that the EYES will have what they desire? The eyes are very hard to control, especially for the brothers, and like the hadith that sister Mujahada posted states, one lustful look is one of the poisoned arrows of Satan. After all those days you lived in this life telling your eyes, "no, don't look at that" or "lower your gaze" or "turn away from the haram"...your eyes are left free to look at anything they please, for eternity.

 

And Allah knows best.

 

Alhamdulillah. :j:
