يَعْلَمُ خَائِنَةَ الأعْيُنِ وَمَا تُخْفِي الصُّدُورُ
He knows the eyes’ deceit and what the chests conceal.
ibn ‘Abbas said: “He is a man sitting with a group of people. A woman then passes by and he steals a glance at her.”
It is also related from him: “He is man who looks at a woman. When his companions look at him, he lowers his gaze; and when he sees that they are unmindful, he secretly engages in looking [at her]. Then when his companions look at him, he lowers his gaze. And Allah, azza wa jall, certainly knows that he wishes that he could look at her private parts.”
ibn ‘Abbas said: “‘And what the chests conceal,’ means: Would he fornicate with her if he was to be secluded with her, or not?”
