The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:-- "Allah has written for the son of Adam his inevitable share of adultery whether he is aware of it or not: The adultery of the eye is the looking (at something which is sinful to look at), and the adultery of the tongue is to utter (what it is unlawful to utter), and the inner self wishes and longs for (adultery) and the private parts turn that into reality or refrain from submitting to the temptation." [Sahih Bukhari].
Immodesty, obscenity and any form of adultery be it of the eyes, tongue or thoughts makes a hole in the heart. Through this hole leaks out Imaan (faith). So, no matter how much you try to fill your heart with Imaan, it will flow out because of this hole. While an inappropriate lustful thought might occur to anybody, as Shaytan always tries to inspire people with these, yet it is the person who decides whether to entertain such ideas, discussions, temptations or turn away from them.
If you are on a plateau, the more centrally you stand on it, the safer you are. The more you get closer to its edge, the greater is the danger that you might fall off the plateau's edge. Therefore, to avoid the major forms of adultery, we must stay away from its minor forms, such as adultery of the eyes, tongue, ears and lustful thoughts... that way we shall be safer. Avoid movies that glamorize the immoral, avoid listening to obscene talks. If an indecent thought occurs to you, seek refuge with Allah, Most High, from Shaytan and do not entertain such thoughts.
