Prophet Muhammad turned his cousin’s face away

"When Prophet Muhammad (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) was travelling on the road with his cousin, Al-Fadl ibn Abbas, a woman stopped him to ask him a question. The woman was very beautiful, and Al-Fadl couldn’t help but stare at her."*

Seeing this, Prophet Muhammad reached out his hand and turned his cousin’s face away.

”He didn’t tell the woman to cover her face.
He didn’t tell her to change her clothing.
He didn’t tell her that her appearance was too tempting or indecent.
He averted his cousin’s impolite stare instead.“

*Bukhari Volume 8, Book 74, Number 247
