  11. Going to mixed gym

    Salam, i have been going to the gym for quite a while now and as you know the gyms here in the us are mixed and i cant help but every time i go there i can't stop thinking and worrying if im disobeying Allah swt by going because it is mixed, but on one hand i tend to over eat a lot and end up gaining weight when i stop going to the gym to lift and break my diet but one the other hand exercising and lifting is one of the few things i have to do in my spare time and keeps me occupied and healthy and in the gym are also hijabi girls and women that go and then im disturbed to see what they wear (tight clothes that is) and not really care, so through all that i find it also hard to focus while worrying about all this... please I need some guidance on this issue

  13. Going to mixed gym

    Actually without my glasses everything is blurry to me thats not right in front of my face, so when im on the treadmill i take them off and can't really tell what anyone is...... hamdillah
  14. Going to mixed gym

    Brother, you can't just say thats the only reason why we train, for me personally when im not training I found myself eating A Lot of fast food, pop, junk food, and gaining a lot of weight and becoming so lazy which in turn made me more prone to looking at those women that I wasn't suppose to look at... and yes im able to control myself more when im eating healthy and training and having a good physique makes me more motivated to stay on it.

  18. Going to mixed gym

  20. Going to mixed gym

    Actually i just noticed that while looking through my emails to his office i came across my reply to his answer which i quoted obove a few posts ago on this thread and then they also replied, here it is, In the Name of God, the Most High It is not permissible to go such a gym where women are also present.

Because there is music playing i always have headphones in listening to islamic lectures and ignore the music and avoid women there. I just need to make sure that i am not committing any haram and i want to know if i am allowed to go to this gym also considering that I couldn't find any gym that is only for men.

  21. Going to mixed gym

    what you're saying about the effect it has on the soul is also true and that is the reason that i had stopped going there a few months ago but then returned to going because the environment that is in the gym pertaining to girls dressed immodestly and revealing and music playing is everywhere, as in when i go to fill up gas there is music blasting just like the one at the gyms, when i go to the grocery store there are girls and even older women dressed in leggings like its the most normal thing, would you beleive brother that even if you go to a majlis in a mosque you could find women dressed in tights (although much less), but at least at the gym i manage most of the time to not look at the few girls that are there and im always listening to majalis and im able to eat healthy and look after my physique currently because of my confused state on this issue since a few days ago i havent been to the gym and so i broke my diet regimen and went back to eating junk and fast food to the point i binge eat and im sick of it. but my point is that i think that the whole environment here is bad for the soul that even if you go out to do miscelaneous chores your soul could still be negatively effected and i have noticed it a lot in my self. ugh sorry for the long post brother im just trying to make sense of all this...
  22. Going to mixed gym

    Salam, but im just trying to understand what's the difference between the gym which is public and any other place in public because even if i go to a park or drive down a street you can see a women jogging wearing the same thing
  23. Going to mixed gym

    I feel the exact same way and even though i dont look at the women there dressed very immodestly i still know that they are there and will see them by accident at times and then my whole mood goes down because i start feeling guilty of even being in such an environment and really all shaitan needs is for us to have that one accidental look and he will produce so many thoughts for us just from that, but i also am leaning into the direction of purchasing a pair of adjustable dumbbells, a bench, a pull up bar, and resistance bands, because you can do most exercises with just those, but the other issue now is im still just a college student with not too much money to blow but inshallah it will be possible to go with this plan until someone gets the guts of opening a segregated gym...
  24. Going to mixed gym

    Yes I think the wisest thing to do is to stop going to this gym and buy a pair of adjustable dumbbells and any other small equipment and do the workouts at home and i have a strong hope telling me that if I do this for the sake of Allah swt he will help me and make it easier for me to achieve my goal through obeying him and inshallah it will benefit me more may Allah reward you for all your advice to me wassalam
  25. Going to mixed gym

    Yes this was what i sent him a while back In the Name of God, the Most High It is not permissible to go such a gym where women are also present.

Wassalam Prefered response language: English Time (Local): 15:1 (-4:0) Time (Najaf): 22:03 ip: 172.56.21.212 Then, this is what i sent a local sheikh: Salam, what is the ruling on a man going to a mixed gym with the intention of just working out to better his body and not wanting to look at the women there who might be dressed in revealing or skin tight clothes, halal or haram? Answer was: ws if he doesn't put himself in a risky temptation situation no problem, but better to choose time the gym is safer! what do you think cause this left me kinda confused
