Benefit in Lowering the gaze #4

Ten Benefits in Lowering the Gaze (Benefit Four)

Ibnul Qayyim رحمه الله mentioned in his Book “The Disease and the Cure“:

The fourth benefit is that it strengthens the heart and brings it joy just as unleashing one’s gaze weakens it and brings it sorrow.

Shaykh ‘Abdurrazzāq Al-Badr explains this point by saying:

This joy that Ibnul Qayyim speaks about is also a tremendous affair.

قُلْ بِفَضْلِ ٱللَّهِ وَبِرَحْمَتِهِۧ فَبِذَٰلِكَ فَلْيَفْرَحُواۡ…

“Say: “In the Bounty of Allāh, and in His Mercy (i.e. Islām and the Qur’ān); therein let them rejoice.”… [10:58]

When Allāh honors the obedient and he finds in himself tremendous strength in lowering his gaze, he becomes joyed with this bounty. He tastes the sweetness that the one who unleashes his gaze doesn’t taste.

So, he strengthens his heart and as a result it becomes joyed. As opposed to the one who unleashed his gaze. The heart becomes weak, grieved and diseased.

Benefit of lowering the gaze #1

◾ Ten Benefits in Lowering the Gaze (Benefit One) ◾

Ibnul Qayyim رحمه الله mentioned in his Book “The Disease and the Cure”:

The first benefit is that it is implementing the command of Allāh, which is the utmost bliss for the slave in his life and his Hereafter. So, there is nothing for the slave in his worldly life and his Hereafter, more beneficial than implementing the commands of his Lord, the Blessed and Most High. And there is no bliss in this worldly life and the Hereafter except by implementing His commands and there is no wretchedness in this worldly life and the Hereafter except by neglecting His commands.

Shaykh ‘Abdurrazzāq Al-Badr explains this point by saying:

This is the first benefit of lowering the gaze. And Ibnul Qayyim رحمه الله enumerated several and they are tremendous. However, he began with this one because it is the core and the essence of the matter, which is that it is act of worship to gain nearness to Allāh.

This is because lowering the gaze is an act of obedience to Allāh , implementing the command of Allāh. So whoever lowers his gaze for the sake of Allāh, then this is an act of worship to gain nearness to Allāh that Allāh will reward him tremendously for, by rectifying his heart and making it free from evil and different types of diseases.

So, from the benefits of lowering the gaze and not unleashing it is that it is implementing the command of Allāh.

“Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things…” (24:30)

“Tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things)…” (24:31)

This is what He has commanded with. So, if the individual lowers his gaze, then this is an act of obedience from him towards his Lord and Master.
