Question

Is it kufr if somebody reads or listens to the quran and looks at non mahram women without desire? It happens that they enter the mosque and people look if it is male or female and if they know the person, after realizing the turn their gaze away. So is it kufr if one repeadly looks without any reason while beeing in the mosque and listening to the quran?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Dear brother, it is very clear from your previous questions that you are affected with whispers about Kufr as this is not your first question in this regard.

Anyway, what we can say to you in brief, is that what you asked about is not Kufr. Hence, we advise you, first of all, to fear Allah, and to not give in to these whispers about Kufr and its questions, so that you will not open a big door of evil, and to not waste our time with such questions as well.

Our experience with people who suffer from whispers is that answering them about everything they ask and continuing to respond to their questions, only causes them to have more whispers and opens the door for them to ask more questions.

The only cure for whispers, after supplicating Allah, is to totally ignore them and not pay any attention to them.

Allah knows best.
