Story, Because you’re muslim

“There was a Brother in Glasgow who became ill and was hospitalized. He was admitted for three days and on the fourth day the attendant nurse said, “Marry me”.
He [the brother in Glasgow] asked, “Why? I am a Muslim, you and I cannot become companions.”
She said, “I will become Muslim”.
“What’s the reason?” it was asked.
She said, “In all my time that I have served in hospitals, except you, I have never seen a man lower his gaze in front of a woman. In my life you are the first person who lowers his gaze when seeing a woman. I come, and you close your eyes. Such great modesty can be taught by none other than a true religion.”
The protection of one’s gaze entered Islam in her. She testified to the Oneness of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) and became a Muslim. They both got married. By now, the same woman was and is the means of bringing so many other girls and women into Islam.[Subhan Allah!!]
In a Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings of Allah be upon him) is reported as having said: “And the eyes commit zina (adultery). Their zina is gazing.”
The Prophet Muhammad (peace & blessings of Allah be upon him) commanded: “Ali! Do not look once after another, for the first look is for you (since it happens accidentally) while the second is against you.”
