Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

 

We were unable to allocate the narration in reference. However, there are many great rewards in lowering the gaze. Consider the following narrations:

 

 

الدر المنثور - (ج 5 / ص 72)

وأخرج أبو القاسم البغوي في معجمه والطبراني عن أبي أمامة سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول « اكفلوا لي بست أكفل لكم بالجنة . إذا حدث أحدكم فلا يكذب ، وإذا ائتمن فلا يخن ، وإذا وعد فلا يخلف ، غضوا أبصاركم ، وكفوا أيديكم ، واحفظوا فروجكم » .

 

Sayyiduna Abu Umamah رضي الله تعالى عنهnarrates that Nabi صلى الله عليو وسلمmentioned:

“Guarantee me six things, I will guarantee you paradise: when you speak, do not lie. When you are entrusted, do not deceive. When you promise, do not go against it. Keep your gaze lowered (from that which is forbidden). Do not cause harm by means of your hands. Safeguard your private organs”. (ad-Dur al-Manthoor 5/72)

 

 

وأخرج أحمد والحكيم في نوادر الأصول والطبراني وابن مردويه والبيهقي في شعب الإِيمان عن أبي أمامة عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : « ما من مسلم ينظر إلى امرأة أول رمقة ثم يغض بصره إلا أحدث الله له عبادة يجد حلاوتها في قلبه » .

 

Sayyiduna Abu Umamah رضي الله تعالى عنهnarrates that Nabi صلى الله عليو وسلمmentioned:

“No Muslim sees a woman and thereafter lowers his gaze except that Allah Ta’ala will inspire him with such worship whereby he will experience its sweetness in his heart”. (ad-Dur al-Manthoor 5/72)

 

 

 

وأخرج الحاكم وصححه عن حذيفة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم « النظرة سهم من سهام إبليس مسمومة ، فمن تركها من خوف الله أثابه إِيماناً يجد حلاوته في قلبه » .

 

Sayyiduna Hudhayfah رضي الله تعالى عنهnarrates that Nabi صلى الله عليو وسلمmentioned:

“Unlawful glances are poisonous spears from the spears of Iblees. Whoever leaves it due to the fear of Allah Ta’ala, Allah Ta’ala will reward him with the sweetness of Iman” (ad-Dur al-Manthoor 5/72)

 

 

وأخرج ابن أبي الدنيا والديلمي عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم « كل عين باكية يوم القيامة ، إلا عيناً غضت عن محارم الله ، وعيناً سهرت في سبيل الله ، وعيناً خرج منها مثل رأس الذباب من خشية الله » .

 

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah رضي الله تعالى عنهnarrates that Nabi صلى الله عليو وسلمmentioned:

“Every eye will be crying on the Day of Judgment except that eye which was lowered away from the forbidden things of Allah Ta’ala, and an eye which stood awake in the part of Allah Ta’ala, and an eye which had tear in the fear of Allah Ta’ala”. (ad-Dur al-Manthoor 5/72)

 

And Allah knows best
