What would you do in this case? (Number 3)

You (and your predominantly female family) are getting off your car, when you notice a bearded-kurta-&-topee man constantly stare at you (and your family). He seems to move around so that he can get a better ‘view’.  Do you:
(More than one option may be chosen)

  1. Get back into the car and drive off
  2. Curse your failure to wear Niqab
  3. Glare at him (AKA the stiff look)
  4. Audibly announce: "Believing men should lower their gaze"
  5. Take your scarf and pull it over your face
  6. Mumble and grumble under your breath
  7. Other (please specify)

I would smile, sit in my car like the lady I am and drive off and praise Allah for my patience in dealing with the annoyances of this world:)

I would love to march over to him and remind him to lower his gaze and not stare but then again it may be unsafe to do that so instead I would advise all the women to turn their backs to him so he cannot see us and drive off. This is why its good to have a mahram with you... id have him approach the brother and talk some sense into him )

I would probably ignore him and go as far away from him as I could.

Thanks great ideas - it seems like we'd all drive off or run away! my preferred option too - though on this 1 particular occasion there was only 1 entrance to the shop we had to visit - so my family and I put our heads as far down as possible and walked pass him. There was a comments wall in this shop - I had a sudden desire to write on this wall: "Men of roaming eyes are not welcome" lol:)
