Q659: Swimming in mixed gathering

I have a question about swimming

اسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

i have swimming pool in my apartment building, me and my friends used to go and swim. since we all came closser to islam we are avoiding to go there becuase when we used to go there some namehram womens come and started swim with us..however my swimming pool is quit big so if we avoid to go closser to them and do swiming at our side.. is it allow to do swimming like that? الحمدالله i have no problem at staring women i can control myself but my friends have problem even though they are pious and fear of allah,they might going have problem staring at women when they will swim.If its not allowed on this situation can we go some other times when no womens are swimming except older womens like 70+ aged?

I looked into your situation and made mashwera with our sufi Saheb as well but I can’t seem to find a way out for you. You’ll have try something else where there is safety of nazar as well.

The mas’la of unlawful gaze is a very delicate one, slightest amount can be detrimental to your spiritual health.

May Allah protect our imaan and help us along sirate mustaqeem. Ameen
