Adultery of the eye

In Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim, the Messenger of Allah (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) said:

“The adultery of the eye is the lustful look”

How are you with lowering your gaze these days? Are you careful to lower it when you are in front of the TV, the computer, or when you go out? It’s Ramadan now, if we don’t commit to a change today then when will it be? Protect your gaze and work to purify your heart. Allah says, “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and guard their private parts…” [24:30-31]
