Looking at the opposite sex on television

Question: What is the ruling regarding looking at a woman (ajnabiyyah – someone who he is not amahram to) and (similarly) a woman (ajnabiyyah) looking at a man whilst watching television?

Response: It is not permissible because generally that which one sees of women on the television are without hijaab and revealing some of their awrah; and regarding the men, that they too are beautified and the effect of this is a fitnah, leading to evil in general.

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
