Sudden Glance

Jarir bin ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported:

I asked Allah’s Messenger Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him) about the sudden glance (that is cast) on the face (of a non-Mahram*).  He commanded me that I should turn away my eyes.

*Mahram – someone you are prohibited to marry, e.g. uncle or aunt, father or mother etc.  Non-Mahram would be someone whom you could marry.

[Sahih Muslim; Book 025, Number 5372]
