Hadith on Passions: The Prophet seeks intimacy in a lawful way

Jabir reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, saw a woman and then he went to his wife Zaynab as she was tanning leather, and he satisfied his needs with her. Then, the Prophet came out to his companions and he said, “Verily, a woman might advance in the form of a devil and withdraw in the form of a devil. If one of you sees a woman, let him return to his home, for that will turn back the lust within himself.

عَنْ جَابِرٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ رَأَى امْرَأَةً فَأَتَى امْرَأَتَهُ زَيْنَبَ وَهِيَ تَمْعَسُ مَنِيئَةً لَهَا فَقَضَى حَاجَتَهُ ثُمَّ خَرَجَ إِلَى أَصْحَابِهِ فَقَالَ إِنَّ الْمَرْأَةَ تُقْبِلُ فِي صُورَةِ شَيْطَانٍ وَتُدْبِرُ فِي صُورَةِ شَيْطَانٍ فَإِذَا أَبْصَرَ أَحَدُكُمُ امْرَأَةً فَلْيَأْتِ أَهْلَهُ فَإِنَّ ذَلِكَ يَرُدُّ مَا فِي نَفْسِهِ
