Eye contact with boys and girls

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I want to know what is the fact beyond eye to eye contact beacuse when I look into eyes of small girls they get in strong contact with me. I only did 30 or 40 times of eye contact because of I feel shame by doing so not only girls and also boys. I probably feel that I am talking with his soul. I go deep inside it like talking with evil like that and that he will be under me. 


A: Don’t get into areas of doubt and problems. Rather have eye contact with the Qur’aan Shareef. Look at your parents’ face you will get thawaab for it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
