How do I control my gaze (e.g looking at females) when I am at university?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I find this very difficult to do as I am not married and cannot find a suitable wife at the moment. Please reccommend me something which is easy for me to do. Jazakallah


Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) has advised the youth saying, ‘O young
people. Those of you who have the ability to get married should do so for
verily in it (marriage) is the lowering of your gaze and the chastity of
your private parts. And he who does not have the ability (of marriage)
should hold on to fasting for verily in fasting there is the constrainment
of one’s desires.’ (Mishkaat)

In the event if one falls into a predicament then he should lower his gaze
with this in mind that the one on whom lustful gazes is intended to be
passed on will turn into dust and will be food for the worms in the grave.
In addition to this, one should not forget about the Omnipresence of Allah

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
