What is the status of this narration?
من غض بصره عن محاسن امرأة أورث الله قلبه نورا
Imam Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah (rahimahullah) has cited this narration. However, I have not come across these words in any primary Hadith source.
(Rawdatul Muhibbin, pg. 101)
Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) has recorded a similar Hadith. It seems like Imam Ibn Qayyim (rahimahullah) was alluding to this Hadith. See it here
“Whoever lowers [and protects his gaze] from seeing the beauty of a woman, Allah will place celestial light into his heart.”
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
