Question regarding the lowering of the gaze
this question is addressed to Shaykh Yasir regarding the lowering of the gaze.
A man is doing his utmost to lower his gaze and prevent himself from the desire that comes from catching sight of a lady. He feels regret and shame each time this happens.Despite his efforts he finds it extremely difficult to lower his gaze, he does sincere istighfar and prays that his gaze will come under his control. He is searching for a solution for this issue. What would be suggested for such a person?
May Allah make us firm on the Deen and protect us from all sources of Fitnah...!!! AMEEN.
"Verily, I was filled with love for her." - Our Beloved Prophet's love towards Umm Al-Mu'mineed Khadijah...
~She was made from the rib of Adam. She was not created from his head to overrule him. Nor from his feet to be stepped upon. She was made from his side to be close to him. From beneath his arm to be protected by him. And near his heart to be loved.~
"Does the lover think that his love can be concealed?
While his eyes are shedding tears and his heart is glowing,
Had it not been for love, you would not have shed tears at the ruins(of your beloved),
Nor would you become restless at the rememberance of the cypress(tree) at the high mountain,
How do you deny love after the testimony?
Borne against you by (such) reliable witnesses as your tears and your illness???"

Re: Question regarding the lowering of the gaze
Jazaka'Allahu Khayran for your sincerity and strive for modesty...Ibn Qayyim in his book Aljawab AlKafee answered this in details...
If you google this title "Twenty Tips for Lowering the Gaze" you shall get a good summary of what Ibn Qayyim said.
And may Allah protect you in this dunya and the Aa'khira.
