What is the status of this narration?

من غض بصره عن محاسن امرأة أورث الله قلبه نورا



Imam Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah (rahimahullah) has cited this narration. However, I have not come across these words in any primary Hadith source.

(Rawdatul Muhibbin, pg. 101)


Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) has recorded a similar Hadith. It seems like Imam Ibn Qayyim (rahimahullah) was alluding to this Hadith. See it here



“Whoever lowers [and protects his gaze] from seeing the beauty of a woman, Allah will place celestial light into his heart.”


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
