shining_flowerThe true Muslim woman avoids looking at men other than her husband; she does not stare at men who are not related to her (i.e. who are not her mahrams), in obedience to the command of Allah (subhaanahu wa ta’aalaa),

“And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze . . .” (Qur’aan 24:31.)

By refraining from looking at other men, she will be one of those chaste women who restrain their glances, which is a quality men like in women, because it is indicative of their purity, decency and fidelity.

This is one of the most beautiful characteristics of the chaste, decent, pure Muslim woman, and this was referred to in the Qur’aan when it speaks of the women of Paradise and their qualities that are loved by men,

“In them will be [Maidens] chaste, restraining their glances, whom no man or jinn before them has touched.” (Qur’aan 55:56.)
