Looking at ghair mahrams from the back

Question ID: 26240

Assalam o alikum,

Respected Mufti Saheb, I know that looking at gair mehram is Haram. But I want to know that whether looking at gair mehram from behind is also haram. Like if one is walking on the road and there are girls also walking in front of him, so he cannot see the girls face but can see the back and hair and body of the girls or women so is this also haram.
And if one is walking and eyes accidentally falls on the gair mehram walking in front and he sees her from the back what should he do. The eyes fall now and then on her as she is in front of him walking and he is walking at the back and has to look up to see the road or people coming from the opposite direction etc . What should he do in this case.

May Allah reward you for your great effort in helping the ummah.

Jazzak Allah Khair!

Back or front - both are Haraam. Accidental is a short duration not staring and focusing. Avoid such venues. These are trying times of bad dressing, immodesty, and immorality as prophesied. Be careful.
