Looking at non-Muslim women

Question:

Salamu alaykum,

I was wondering if any of the scholars regarded looking at a non-Muslim women’s body as permissible (without lustful intentions). This is because I live in a place where lots of women wear short sleeves and skirts and it turns very stressful because I can’t spend more than 1 minute looking at one direction. The looking is not for lust. Please answer.

Answer:

A`udhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajeem
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem

Recite Istighfar for it’s the environment, not your fault. If you can, move elsewhere.
