Reading this blog today about someones problem with addiction to porn and how it can cause marital problems.. made me also wonder about how men generally do not keep their eyes of women..could be a woman walking down the street, or a woman you drive past, woman in the shops, woman at work etc..men are always looking..But God tells us to:
“Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and be modest. That is purer for them. Lo! Allah is Aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest.
We are warned that:
“There is nothing left after I go more dangerous to men than the temptations of women”.
Thus us guys have to especially stay alert, if not, not only will it ruin our faith and hearts but in cn cause the break up of families..thus this issue should never be taken lightly. God is not telling us to stay away from adultery.for no reason whatsoever..He is telling us as he knows the dangers of adultery and the calamities it can bring. Anything that leads to adultery is also adultery eg looking at a woman, tlking to a woman without reason, listening to her sweet voice etc..walking towards her..all these we must remember.
A simple contemplation which might help to protect the eyes is to remind ourselves that “She is the daughter of a Prophet.” Or ask ourselves how would we feel if someone looked at my wife, dughter, mother or sister with evil desings?
May God protect our eyes and hearts from all that is unlwful.
