In the Noble verses of the Koranic surah “Light” (Nur) , God commands us to avert our  glances as well as guarding the private  parts in order to attain chastity:

 

Tell believers to avert their glances and to guard their private parts that are chaster for them. God is Informed about anything they may produce. (24:30)

Tell believing women to avert their glances and guard their private parts, and not to display their charms except what  [normally] appears of them they should fold their shawls over bosoms and slow their charms any to their husbands, or their fathers or their father- in –law , or their own  sons or stepsons  or their own brothers or nephews  or their brothers, or their sisters side , or their women folk, or anyone their right hand control, or male attendants who have no sexual desire,  or children who have not yet shown any interest in  women’s nakedness. Let them not stomp their feel in order to let any ornaments they may have hidden be noticed. Turn to God, all you believers, so that you may prosper.(24:31)
