When a woman passed infront of you. Lower Your Gaze

Lower Your Gaze; Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do.
Source: Quran 24:30

As Muslims, we are well aware of the Quranic injunction to lower your gaze from members of the opposite sex, both brother's and sister's must lower their gaze. it's obligatory on each on of us.

Abu Nu'aym reported: Sufyan al-Thawriads aul äa>, said, "A woman will pass by a man and he cannot restrain himself from looking at her lustfully although there is no benefit in it. What could be weaker than this?"

Jarir b. 'Abdullah reported: I asked Allah's Messenger about the sudden glance (that is cast) on the face (of a non-Mahram). He commanded me that I should turn away my eyes.
Source: Sahih Muslim 2159a

The Prophet (saw) also warned us explicitly of the dangers of not lowering the gaze, when he said: “... The adultery of the eyes is looking (at [that] which is not allowed)..."
Source: Sahih Muslim 2658

It is in this instance, surrounded by half-naked people, that we must have the courage to follow the command of Allah. 
Allah says:"Do not go near fornication and adultery, it is an abomination and an evil way." (Quran 17:32).

This sin is so hateful in the sight of Our Lord, that He commanded us to not even go near it. Despite what anyone may say, looking upon that which one is not supposed to is going near adultery. For an illicit affair begins with a lustful glance. Allah wishes for us not to commit this ugly sin, and thus He commands us to lower our gazes

Surely those who are strong enough to control their gaze from that which is prohibited will be strong enough to face more of life's challenges. A mind that is polluted with explicit images and infatuated with desire will no doubt find difficulty in concentration and focus.

In this age of fitnah where immorality spreading everywhere through online and offline modes. people are following their lust but you're muslim, we believe in purity. Don't do Sins to fit in the trends. know that successful are those who follow the path of purity. so lower your gaze and raise yourself in status
