Turn Your Eyes Away


Jareer bin Abdullah Bajali (radi Allahu anhu) narrated that he asked the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) about the sudden and unintentional glance (at a non-Mahram). He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, “Turn your eyes away.” [Muslim, Tirmidhi]

It should be understood about Ghadd al-Basar (guarding the eyes) that it is not permissible to intentionally look at non-Mahrams, but if one unintentionally looks at one, he/she should not continue to stare or take a second look.
