Looking at other's awrah is a sin. But specifically speaking, what is the level of intensity of this sin?

What do the Qur'an and Hadith indicate about this matter?

I saw somewhere that Rasulullah (S.A.W) said that the person looking at the awrah and the person showing the awrah, both are cursed. Is this a legitimate hadith?

If there's any problem in my question please inform me. Thanks!

  • Good question. I'd also add that many men at pools and beaches unknowingly expose their awrah as they forget that for males it from the belly button (navel) to the knees. But most of them wear trunks that start at the hips. So it is an issue across both genders. – Ahmed Aug 13 at 8:44
