Reward of refraining from Lewd Glances

When a Muslim man refrains himself from lewd gazing, whenever his gaze falls on any non-Mahram, he turns it away, then from the Court of Allah Ta'ala, he is given sweetness in worship, as the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) says:

 

Translation of Hadith: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Umama (May Allah Ta'ala be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said that whichever Muslim unintentionally sees the beauty of a non-Mahram woman and immediately turns his gaze down, then Almighty Allah will grant him the guidance to perform such worship, the sweetness of which he will actually feel.  (Musnad Imam Ahmad, Hadith No. 22938)

 

One of the reasons that the Muslims have been ordered to keep their gaze down is that they should not see any woman.  When someone ends up seeing a woman who is without Hijab, then in this situation, it becomes difficult to control one's Nafs.  That’s why the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has ordered the removal of the root cause of all this corruption.

 

Translation of Hadith:  Surely women come in the guise of Satan and go in the guise of Satan, (i.e. men are easily misguided by women).  Hence, whenever anyone from among you sees a woman, who appeals to you, he should come to his wife because this act will remove those thoughts which cross his heart and mind.  (Musnad Imam Ahmed, Hadith No. 14911)

 

The pride of a Muslim is in keeping his gaze down and not dirtying his gaze with forbidden sights.  Those people who fall prey to lewd gazing and don’t guard their gaze, their faces change and the Hadith have a warning about their hearts being mutated:

 

Translation of Hadith:  Hadhrat Abu Umama (May Allah Ta'ala be well pleased with him) narrates from the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) that He said:  You keep your gaze down and guard your private parts, otherwise Allah Ta'ala will change your faces.  (Mo'jam Kabeer, Hadith No. 7746)

 

There is a Hadith in Imam Tabarani’s Mo'jam Kabeer and Kanz Ul Ummal:

 

Translation of Hadith:  It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Ma’qil bin Yassaar (May Allah Ta'ala be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: It is better that your head be pricked with an iron needle than that anyone from among you touch a non-Mahram woman.  (Mo'jam Kabeer, Hadith No. 16880; Kanz Ul Ummal, Hadith No. 13065)

 

There is a Hadith in Mo'jam Kabeer and Jame Ul Ahadith:

 

Translation of Hadith: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Umama (May Allah Ta'ala be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: You definitely lower your gaze and guard your private parts and (In Salaat) turn your face to the Qiblah.  Otherwise, Almighty Allah will mutate your faces.  (Mo'jam Kabeer, Hadith No. 7746; Jame Ul Ahadith, Hadith No. 18309; Kanz Ul Ummal, 13082)
