90 Lowering The Gaze: Help Your Heart Focus

91 Reduces Distraction on the Heart The soul is a temptress and loves to look at beautiful forms and the eye is the guide of the heart. The heart commissions its guide to go and look to see what is there and when the eye informs it of a beautiful image it shudders out of love and desire for it. Frequently such inter-relations tire and wear down both the heart and the eye. Therefore when the sight is prevented from looking and investigating the heart finds relief from having to go through the arduous task of (vainly) seeking and desiring. Ibn Al-Qayyim

92 Gives Your Penetrating Insight Whosoever builds his outward form upon following the Sunnah, his internal form upon perpetual contemplation and awareness of Allaah, he restrains his soul from following desires, he lowers his gaze from the forbidden things and he always eats the lawful things then his perception and insight shall never be wrong. - Ibn Shujaa Al-Kirmaanee

93 Strengthens Your Discipline the people seek nobility and power at the door of the Kings and they will not find it except through the obedience of Allaah.
