Lowering the Gaze

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I always have an issue with lowering my gaze! I do it every time but its so hard because my eye always catches a glimpse of part of a Woman's body. Especially in my High School, the girls expose themselves, wearing short skirts and the school tolerates that! 

Is there anybody who is successful in lowering their gaze? 

JazakAllah, :)

There's no such thing as perfect lowering of gaze, not for young men at least.

Just keep trying and never forget that you need to lower your gaze.

How do I know when I have committed a sin for my gaze towards women?

Try to keep your eyes lower than a normal level "always". So that whenever you see that a woman is passing by either lower your gaze more or start seeing on either of the sides with your face lowered so that you won't catch a glimpse.

Yes it is true that sometimes by mistake your eyes pass through something unwanted, Do isteghfaar therein and lower your gaze after that.

Allah knows your situation. He knows that you're trying your best to avoid the Sinful dunya. Just be firm on this.

May Allah protect us from sinning.

Do not desire her beauty in your heart, Nor let her capture you.

--Proverbs, Parental Counsel vs 25.

But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

--Mathew 5:28
