The Fraud of the Eyes, O enemies unto yourselves

“Allah knows the fraud of the eyes, and all that the breasts conceal.” (Surah Ghafir 40:19).

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

"And she, in whose house he was, sought to seduce him (to do an evil act), she closed the doors and said: “Come on, O you.” He said: “I seek refuge in Allah (or Allah forbid)! Truly, he (your husband) is my master! He made my stay agreeable! (So I will never betray him). Verily, the Zalimoon (wrong and evil-doers) will never be successful.” ” (Surah Yusuf 12:23)

So his Lord answered his invocation and turned away from him their plot. Verily, He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.” (Surah Yusuf 12:34).

Dearest Muslimatti

I was quite astonished to find such an array of alluring photos of muslim women in hejab and niqab ....

I really cant understand this new bidah as its goes against the very grain of Haya [ Islamic modesty ] and the commands of Allah Azza wa Jall
No self respecting sister would deliberately pose for such enticing photos , seductive in manner and inviting to the opposite sex . I said to myself maybe some are not muslims at all but kafrs posing to create fitna in our society or maybe some are new to Islam and have not fully developed Haya , and Im sure some sisters aren't even aware of these pic being snapped , whatever the reason , it should stop before this fitna spreads to our daughters and they become mere objects of [ come hither ] come to me , adore me desire me, be fascinated by me , may Allah forbid ameen

Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things)…”(Surah Al-Noor 24:30-31)

This verse is a proof since Allah ordered believing men and women to lower their gazes, and His ordering something means it is obligatory. Then Allah tells us that it is purer and that only an accidental (unintentional) glance will be forgiven. ‘Ali bin Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“O ‘Ali, do not follow a glance with another, for you will be forgiven for the first, but not for the second.”

(Reported by Al-Hakim in Al-Mustadrak (2/212 and 3/133)

“The adultery of the eyes is the sight (to gaze at a forbidden thing), the adultery of the tongue is the talk,… and the inner self wishes and desires and the private parts testify all this or deny it.”

[Sahih Al-Bukhari (no. 6612), Muslim (no. 2657), Ahmed (2/276)]. Gazing at forbidden things is adultery since it is enjoying the sight of charms of a woman, results in these images becoming etched in the heart of the person . Islam forbids gazing at her due the resultant evil.

“And let them (Muslim women) not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment.” (Surah Al-Noor 24:31).

Stampings one feet ] draws attention to ones self so a sister who posers for these alluring photos is wanting the attention of the opposite sex and following the footsteps of Shaytaan

“And stay in your houses, and do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance.” (Surah Al-Ahzab 33:33)

SabhanAllah do not display yourselves [ Mutabarri-ja-tim bizinah ] your beautiful eyes made up to look even more captivating, your plucked eyebrows.................... all this and wearing a niqab , how ludicrous is this , do you want to draw on yourselves sins and be responsible for multiplying those sins because every time a male looks at you and takes a second glance your in trouble .

La huwla walla quwaita illah bilaah

Usama bin Zaid reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:

I have not left after me any (chance) of turmoil more injurious to men than the harm done to the men because of women.

[narrated by Al-Bukhari (no. 5069) and Muslim (2740)]. Since the Prophet (peace be upon him) described women as being a fitnah (temptation, trial) for men, a muslim woman who has Taqwa of Allah tries her best to avoid this very harm and being labelled as a temptation towards her brothers .

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

" The world is sweet and green (alluring) and verily Allah is going to install you as vicegerent in it in order to see how you act. So avoid the (allurement of) women: verily, the first trial for the children of Israel was caused by women.”

Please sisters dont be careless in this matter as it affects many, think of your children , you are their role model , your sisters , they are your blood what hurts them hurts you , your brothers who are trying to have Izzah in a world Hay ta- lak [ come on , O you ]
Dont sell yourself for a miserable price
Do not fall for the pomp and glitter of this world but seek a way to draw closer to Allah's Grandeur

And Allah summoneth to the abode of peace, and leadeth whom He will to a straight path.
Yunus : 25

Alhumdu lillahi Rabil Aliameen

from one seeking Hawna [ humility, modesty ]


  1. masha'allah sister great post may Allah, bless u in this blessed month, its always comforting to read about these topics coming from a woman, so that the kafirs don't say that muslim men force muslim women into these things. And I personally am not attracted to colorful hijabs, make up, or women trying to seduce me.

  2. thats good to hear ... follow in the footsteps of our wise Prophets aas) insha'Allah
