My question is: 1) Is seeing 'Awrah of
another person breaks ablution? 2)
Secondly, does seeing 'Awrah of an infant
child of 1-2 years of age breaks ablution?
3) What about married couple seeing each
others 'Awrah, does it breaks ablution? 4)
Does watching all of the above categories
on print media, television and Internet
also counts to break of ablution? I want
opinion of Ayimmat Arba'a, especially Abu
Haneefah in this matter.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

Just looking to the 'Awrah (the parts of the
body which must be covered: A man must
cover from the navel to the knee and a
woman must cover her whole body) of an
infant, spouse, or anyone else does not
nullify ablution. There is nothing in Islam
that states that looking to the 'Awrah
invalidates ablution, and we do not know any
difference of opinion among the scholars
about it. The Hanafi School stated that
ablution is not invalidated by just looking.
The author of Al-Mabsoot (of the Hanafi
School) stated: 'Even if one looks to the
private parts of his wife, this does not
invalidate ablution as Ibn 'Abbaas, may Allah
be pleased with him, said: "Ablution is
required if a white, thin, sticky discharge
caused by sexual stimulation comes out of
the private parts."
Just looking without any discharge and
thinking about sexual acts is the same. But if
any pre-seminal discharge comes out of the
looker, then this invalidates ablution because
of the discharge and not because of looking.

Finally, we draw the attention of the
questioner that it is forbidden to look to the
private parts of any other person except the
spouse whether live, in photos, T.V, or
internet, as Allah says (interpretation of
meaning): { Tell the believing men to lower
their gaze (from looking at forbidden things),
and protect their private parts (from illegal
sexual acts, etc) that is purer for them.
Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.}
[24:30]. Moreover, the Prophet said: " A
man should not look at the 'Awrah of
another man, and a woman should not look
at the 'Awrah of another woman." [Muslim
and At-Tirmithi] However, it is permissible to
look at the private parts of a child who is
less than 7 years if that is without any desire
and if one is free from temptation.

Allah knows best.
