Dr. `Ali Jum`ah, professor of Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence at Al-Azhar University, states the following: “Every committed Muslim should avoid starring at others’ `Awrah. It makes no difference whether the one whom you stare at is a male or a female.
Referring to this, Allah Almighty says: “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze and be modest. That is purer for them. Lo! Allah is Aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest…” (An-Nur: 30-31)
Hence, every committed Muslim and Muslimah should avoid gazing at each other’s `Awrah, and it is better to adapt oneself to that which is righteous.
It stands to reason that gazing at such photos is more akin to non-Islamic cultures that take much care in material aspects of man. This very vision is unbecoming for us Muslims as our creed do concentrate on both material and spiritual aspects in a moderate way.
Hence, it is clear that starring at such photos (irrespective of whether they are for males or females) should be avoided.”
It is clear from the above Fatwa that starring at the photos of actresses should be avoided, as it incurs no benefit for the person who do so. Such habits are alien to us Muslims. They are imported habits that we should avoid.
