problems afflicting male relatives and other men

the woman who does not adhere to the teachings of religion regarding hijaab (islamic covering) and avoiding intermixing with men is a great danger for men. hence, islam is keen on keeping men away from women, except in marriage, because this intermixing and the impermissible exposure of adornment cause loss of honor, corruption of souls, destruction of homes and the suffering of families.
it has been noted that in societies where intermixing between the two sexes is allowed, the morals of the youth are tarnished and manly zeal among men is diminished to the extent of developing effeminacy.
women who intermix with men do their best to display their beauty and adornment and insist on attracting their attention and gaining their admiration. this leads to extravagance with the expenses of adornment and cosmetics that, in turn, leads to financial ruin and poverty.
the unlawful display of a woman's beauty leads to the spread of immorality, adultery and the diseases that result from it in the worldly life and it brings severe punishment in the hereafter for violating the commands of the lord of the worlds.
allaah the almighty says (what means):
·        {tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. that is purer for them. indeed, allaah is acquainted with what they do. and tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers, their brothers' sons, their sisters' sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. and let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. and turn to allaah in repentance, all of you, o believers, that you might succeed.}[quran 24: 30-31]
·        {o prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. that is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. and ever is allaah forgiving and merciful.}[quran 33: 59]
·        in a hadeeth (narration) on the authority of ‘abdullaah ibn mas‘ood  may allaah be pleased with him he said that the prophet,  sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may allaah exalt his mention ) said that allaah the almighty says: “the look is a poisonous arrow from the arrows of satan. whoever abandons it for fearing me, i will grant him faith whose sweetness he will find in his heart.”
·        in a hadeeth on the authority of abu umaamah  may allaah be pleased with him he said that the prophet,  sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may allaah exalt his mention ), said: beware of meeting in seclusion with women! by allaah! no man meets a woman in seclusion, but the devil becomes their third.   it is better for a man to touch a pig that is dirtied with clay than to touch with his shoulders the shoulders of a non-mahram woman.”
·        the prophet,  sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may allaah exalt his mention ) said: “any woman who wears perfume and passes by a group of people so that they would smell her perfume is an adulteress and every eye is liable to commit adultery.” [an-nasaa’i]
guilt for violating the orders of allaah the almighty is not restricted to women alone, as it also includes men. being prey to the corruption of women and the devil’s temptation do not exempt men from punishment in this life or the hereafter after allaah the almighty has warned them.
the effect of such problems on the whole society:
these problems violently shake the pillars of the family and society, and exacerbate or give rise to other problems such as rape, kidnapping of girls, and the rise in the number of illegitimate and homeless children, are all caused by the corruption of women. recently, the phenomenon of unregistered marriage contracts has caused new problems for the family, and conceals the social corruption that results from the deviation of girls and that will affect the future of the coming generations.
there are economic problems that affect society and these were caused by the deviation of the working woman. in addition to her low productivity, she affects her husband’s and children’s productivity and hinders their excellence in work and this has a destructive effect on the national economy.
allaah the almighty says (what means): {o people of the scripture, there has come to you our messenger making clear to you much of what you used to conceal of the scripture and overlooking much. there has come to you from allaah a light and a clear book. by which allaah guides those who pursue his pleasure to the ways of peace and brings them out from darknesses into the light, by his permission, and guides them to a straight path.}[quran 5:15-16] allaah the almighty has promised to preserve his book. he says (what means): {indeed, it is we who sent down the quran and indeed, we will be its guardian.}[quran 15:9]
this gives us hope that reform can be achieved by adhering to the book of allaah the almighty and the sunnah (tradition) of the prophet,  sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may allaah exalt his mention ) and by returning to the virtuous islamic society.
