Looking Away brings Sweetness to Worship

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A Muslim who accidentally looks at the beauty of a woman and, instead of continuing to look at her, lowers his gaze will be rewarded by Allah with such worship, the sweetness of which he will clearly feel.” [Musnad Ahmad]

We wonder what we are doing wrong that we don’t feel the connection with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) in our heart and in our lives. We are given tips on how to achieve Khushoo in prayer and focus, on where to look, what to think, and what kind of prayer mat to use: But how can any of these tips be effective when we have ruined our connection with Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) by His disobedience?

Looking at non-Mahram women is like drinking salty water, the more you drink the thirstier you become. Even a sip will make you ill. If your throat is parched with thirst, you are still better off not drinking anything than drinking salty water, for it will only increase your thirst and make your suffer more. If you have no sweet water (wife), strengthen yourself with fasting.

Refuse to look at women (except your wife). Be your own boss!
