The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]



As the heat gets hotter. as the sun gets brighter

As they take it all off. as their burden gets lighter

When you feel the temptation as they roam half naked

When you think for sure that you just cant make it

Remember O Muslim the perfect instructions

Remember not to give in to those temptations

Through the lure, the enticement and through the haze

Remember the order “…to lower your gaze”

Don’t go to such places, don’t go to the beaches

Remember the lessons ….remember what Islaam teaches

Don’t sit idle in the street nor visit the mall

When you know they are going to bare it all

Now, I know it isn’t easy.. its hard not to stare

Its difficult to look away when its all there

But, don’t feed your lust, nor set it ablaze

Remember the order “…to lower your gaze”

What’s the harm in it, they say. It’s nothing but fun!

If I look at some bodies bathing in the sun!

A lustful look towards the opposite gender

Is all that it takes to set off the trigger

It leads to sin and abomination

It paves the way for fornication

Don’t take it so lightly, don’t think it’s a phase

Remember the order “… to lower your gaze”

Watch out for that arrow..the arrow from Satan
The one you’re warned about’ laden with poison

The arrow that is aimed towards your very heart
When it reaches its target, it leaves a black mark

It infects your heart and leaves it vulnerable
for Shaytaan to take over and do as he is able

Recall the Prophet’s words for he told no lies
“Looking at something forbidden is the zinaa of the eyes.”

Don’t look at anything haraam, that’s what he said
So when temptation passes by, ..just turn away your head

Just lower your gaze,..don’t give that second look
For you never know when you get caught by the hook

A lustful glance, then the talk ..then the meeting
You know what comes next, .after all the flirting

Fornication is major. “Don’t even come near it
It starts with that first look, every Muslim should fear it

So lower your gaze, don’t look at haraam
Strive for good deeds,..they work like a charm

If you are able then do get married
That’s what the Prophet 3alayhi-salaam instructed

Keep voluntary fasts,…they will make you strong
Being a good Muslim, you surely can’t go wrong

A part of his character is the Muslim’s gaze
So fear Allaah as you spend these summer days

Ask Allaah to help you, …you’ll find Him there
And never underestimate the power of prayer

Not only in the streets, remember O Muslim
Lower your gaze when watching television

The shows, ..the sitcoms…the underwear ads
The suggestive scenes….the fashions and the fads

Day in and day out, we watch haraam and yet…
when “Baywatch” comes on, we don’t turn off the set

Did you forget the Day when Allaah will ask you
of every look you cast,….every glance you threw

So where will you hide….what will you do
That Day your eyes will witness against you

Remember, the beauty of this world is temporary
The question is then….will you be able to carry

Your head down,  in front of the Almighty
When you stand on a Day, so long so dreary?

You are the best Ummah….the Model Community
Custodians of Truth….Upholders of Morality

So fight the Shaytaan, stop him in his wickedness
Lower your gaze, ask for Allaah’s forgiveness

And thank Allaah O Muslim and realize
The greatest blessing is a pair of eyes

Don’t use it to disobey Him, don’t earn His Displeasure
For you will be asked what you did with this treasure

It is not too late…to repent….to amend
Start now….by lowering your gaze my friend

قُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَغُضُّوا مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِمْ وَيَحْفَظُوا فُرُوجَهُمْ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ أَزْكَىٰ لَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا يَصْنَعُونَ

وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ

“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) & guard their modesty…” [soorah An-Noor, v:30-31]
