The Eye Is the Mirror of the Heart

Ibn al-Qayyim rahimahullaah ta’aalaa:

العين مرآة القلب، فإذا غض العبد بصره غض القلب شهوته وإرادته، وإذا أطلق بصره أطلق القلب شهوته.

The eye is the mirror of the heart. If a person lowers his gaze, the heart will lower its desires and whims. But if a person looks the desire in his heart will be provoked.

— [رَوضةُ المُحبينَ صَـ 109]
