Getting the urge to look at women

Question ID: 26979

Asalaamualaikum Respect Mufti.

I call on you for guidance please. I have a problem with Zinah in terms of controlling my gaze. On a daily basis I am quite good at controlling my gaze from women. I try really hard and alhamdulillah it works. However every now and than I get this urge to look at women either in magazines or internet etc.

Everytime after committing this act, I make taubah and make a firm intention not to do this but these urges become so uncontrolable and I find myself doing this disgusting act again. I feel that Allah will consider my taubah and future intentions to be of no significance because I keep reverting to this sin.

I am currently married and alhamdulillah my wife does fulfil all my desires in the best possible way and I feel so ashamed when I get these urges.

I am quite regular and punctual with all of my salaat with Jamaat. I also try to read tahajud everyday.
I recite on a daily basis Yaseen & Tabaruk. I am in the process of memorizing surah waaqia and surah muzzinmil.
I thereafter recite atleast 1 rukuh of the quraan (and in addition, I read the meaning from Quraan Made Easy).

Respected Mufti, I really need your duaas, help and guidance are requested please. What else can I do when these urges return.

Then stop buying magazines and surfacing the internet. When the urge arises, make Wudhu, read Quraan, Islaamic literature. Go sit in the Masjid, be amongst the pious.
